We automatically schedule our clients routine 6-12 month recall check-up and clean appointments.

You should see your dentist every 6-12 months for a general check up and clean.  Patients who have required fillings at their last check-up, have early signs of decay or have gum problems are all recommended to see their dentist routinely every 6 months. Your dentist will normally inform you what time frame is recommended for you personally.

Don’t worry you are not alone! Call our friendly team on 6224 7666 and we will assist you with sorting out the issue.

We recommend starting to bring them in as soon as teeth appear to help desensitise them to the experience. A simple ride in the dental chair with either mum or dad can help familiarise them with this process.

If you are with a Health fund and have dental extras they will cover some of the costs for you depending on your level of cover.

We accept all health funds. We are preferred providers for Medibank private, AHM and CBHS and most preventive items like check-ups and cleans are fully covered by these funds.

After a thorough check up and clean your dentist can provide you with a dental treatment plan for any work necessary. Our friendly staff can then provide you with an estimate for any out of pocket costs or you can contact your health fund directly.

Dentistry does not have to be painful. In the interest of your own comfort our caring dentists will always apply a numbing cream to the gum before placing an anaesthetic. We will make sure that you are ready to proceed with your treatment once you are numb.
