Dr Manuel Bautista
Dr Manuel Bautista graduated from dental school in Colombia in 2005, the same year he moved to Melbourne. In 2009 he passed his Australian Dental Council exams and started his journey working as a dentist in Australia alongside experienced dentists in Melbourne when he reinforced his desire on becoming a dental implant professional.
In 2011 Dr Manuel Bautista founded Plenty Smiles. Establishing his clinic, he started with three chairs and invited talented colleagues to work with him, and in 2012 he placed his first dental implant.
With continuous training and partnering with experts in the matter in 2016, he started to perform the All on 4 technique. The same year, he travelled to Lisbon, Portugal to learn more about All on 4 directly from Paulo Malo, the creator of All on 4.
Since then, Dr Manuel kept perfecting the technique and incorporating the assistance of digital dentistry to enhance the outcomes of his all on 4 patients and to elevate the quality of his treatments.
During these years in the making, Plenty Smiles gradually became a leader providing high-quality dental services in the northern suburbs of Melbourne and specialising in dental implants and cosmetic dentistry.

Biological dentistry is based on the concept that all dental therapies should work in harmony with the body’s natural ability to heal and repair itself. Biological dentistry embodies the art and science of dentistry as it pertains to the uniqueness of each individual. It encompasses the parameters of health, comfort,
function, beauty and longevity. It is focused on health care.
Dr Manuel Bautista travelled in 2019 to Konstanz, Germany to meet and to be mentored by Dr Karl Ulrich Volz a World leader in biological dentistry.
