Metro Dental Melbourne - Dentist Melbourne
Look after your smile with Metro Dental, one of Melbourne's leading dental clinics. At Metro Dental Melbourne, our patients are our primary focus.
Metro Dental is readily accessible via public transport and located opposite RMIT University at Level 6, 407 Swanston Street, Melbourne.
The building in which Metro Dental practice is located is well known as the Druids House.
Druids House, began life as headquarters for the friendly society and is now a Heritage Listed location. Built in 1926 and styled in the ”Greek Revival” manner, it houses an original entry foyer with terrazzo and tiled floors, three-colour Buchan marble and ornate metalwork. The interior of the building has a high level of integrity and finish.
The entry into the Druids House is by marble stairs and quiet mirror-walled lift. As the entry into Druids House is by a short staircase it regrettably doesn’t allow for the access of the disabled patients wheelchairs.
