In 1996, we moved our practice "Ongley & Associates" from the upstairs of the Hartham Court building in Hartham Place, (beside the old North City Plaza) so the building could be demolished for the extension of the shopping precinct.
With you, our clients in mind our new building was purpose-built allowing room for 3 surgeries, our own car parking, wheelchair access and light, modern, comfortable rooms. A few years later we changed our name from Ongley Associates to Champion Dental Centre.
