How often should I see a dentist?

Generally, we recommend a dental check-up and clean every six months so your dentist can help you keep your teeth and gums healthy and pick up any issues in the early stages before they become big issues. 

Just because you don't feel any discomfort doesn't mean there's not something going on. Dental decay and gum disease usually don't give any symptoms until they are well advanced. Advanced diagnostics using digital dental x-rays makes it easier to detect conditions early, potentially saving you time and money over the course of your lifetime.

Some people, especially those with gum disease, may need to be seen as often as every three months. We always recommend treatment based on your needs and never treat something as important as your health with a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, we spend time getting to know you and your goals for your smile. We also present any issues we see along with all treatment options, respecting that different people require different solutions.

We will advise you of what is the right interval between visits for you and maintain diligence to protect your oral and overall health by looking after your smile.

Has it been a while since your last dental appointment? You will not find any guilt or judgement here. We are here to help you regain your confidence and your smile.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

TO ALL OF OUR PATIENTS
We are excited that we can see patients from Thursday as we move to Level 2. Please call 03 3545450 to schedule an appointment.
We want to make you aware of some changes to expect as we work to keep you safe.We will ask you a series of screening questions on making the appointment and again when you arrive for your appointment.  We'll ask you to use hand sanitizer as you arrive and leave our office.We won't be using the Front Room to seat patients awaiting treatment instead we ask you to call us on your arrival from your car and we'll bring you directly into the Treatment Room when we're ready for you. Appointments are being managed to allow for additional infection control procedures and social distancing between patients so you may be offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment. We know you will understand as the world has changed we have made some changes along with it to keep our patients and our team safe.
