Our Practitioners

Dr Nigel Cluer
B.D.Sc (Hons), Principal Dentist and owner

Dr Cluer has maintained a mercury-free, biocompatible approach to his dentistry for the past 30 years. His refined skill, honesty and kindness, combined with his unique ability to connect with people from all walks of life, is his secret to such a large following in the Byron Shire.

Having founded three previous dental practices, including the Brunswick Holistic Dental Centre, Dr Cluer’s new Bangalow clinic is his favourite. Intimate and peaceful, it’s a space which reflects his nature, one where he can nurture his patients without the pressure of a large clinic to oversee.

He’s always situated at the forefront of modern dentistry, due to ongoing research and training into all areas of dental advancement. He’s a member of the Australasian branch of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) – a science-based organisation which researches, encourages, and supports the use of biological dentistry. He’s SMART certified for the safe removal of mercury amalgam fillings.

Dr Cluer’s interests are ocean endurance swimming, yoga asanas, and reading the Bhagavad-Gita. He’s always trying to improve his service to Lord Krishna and His creation. A vegetarian for 30 years, he’s now adopting a fully plant-based diet to minimise his footprint in the world and to help alleviate the needless suffering of animals.
