In your "style.css" you have this code which is setting the page background of the URL you provided:
body {
    -moz-text-size-adjust: none;
    background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0) url("http://zbm.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/zoobg.jpg") no-repeat scroll 0 0 / cover ;
    color: #000;
    font-family: "proxima_novalight",Arial,sans-serif;
    font-size: 19px;
    line-height: 24px;
    overflow-x: hidden;
}

I know nothing about the plugin you are trying to use but you should be able to simply modify your CSS in the "style.css" file and be done.

ok, not sure what has been don to the theme but the body tag SHOULD have classes to identify the page

as in

<body class="home page page-id-242 page-template-default">

Open in new window


or in you case

<body class="page page-id-999 dentist1">

Open in new window

or similar which would allow you to target that page

or you can add something like this to the functions.php (not tested)

function add_local_css() {
	if ( is_page('dentist1') ){
		wp_enqueue_style('theme_name', get_bloginfo('template_directory').'/dentist1.css', null, '', 'screen, projection');
	}
}
add_action('wp_head', 'add_local_css', 25);

Please make sure you are using the CSS area in the Customizer for this or that you are on a child-theme. If you just edit the theme files your changes will be overwritten when the theme is updated!
