Dr Ethan Zappala


Ethan was born and bred in Far North Queensland. For Ethan, the choice to study dentistry stemmed from growing up in a rural community, which was disadvantaged when it comes to access to dental services. After graduating from high school, Ethan went on to complete a Bachelor of Dental Surgery at James Cook University in 2017.

Ethan gained experience working in rural communities, giving back those who do not have easy access to dental treatment. He was also involved in oral health promotion programs which he hopes to continue in the future.


Ethan made the move to the Sunshine Coast to join us at Avenue Dental in 2019. Prior to this, Ethan enjoyed working full-time in a private dental practice in Cairns.  It is here where his passion for cosmetic/restorative dentistry developed. Ethan also enjoys practicing the full range of general dentistry and is always seeking to grow his knowledge and skills in all aspects of general dentistry.


During his spare time, Ethan enjoys playing sports and outdoor activities including fishing and hiking. Especially with his 4×4, Ethan is looking forward to exploring everything the Sunshine Coast has to offer.
