We understand how important it is for children to have good experiences at the dentist. We can see children from as soon as they get their first tooth if they are experiencing a problem, however, most parents start bringing their kids in from between 3 and 4 years of age. This allows them to become familiar with the surroundings and the process. If they need any treatment by the time they are 5 or 6, they will have had several positive visits and can often be treated with minimal intervention and without the need for local anaesthetic.
We are very fortunate to have to skills of an Oral Health Therapist at the practice now. For more about Anna-liisa check out her bio.
It is very sad that Dental Decay is the number one reason that children get General Anaesthetics. Mostly, it is completely preventable! We will help reinforce good oral hygiene habits and a balanced diet to help keep your child smiling.
Brush morning and last thing before bed at night
Adults should help with brushing until 10 years of age
Avoid leaving your baby/child sipping on milk/sugary drinks
Limit "sometimes food" like soft drinks and sugary snacks
Encourage a balanced diet - plenty of fresh vegetables!
Speak positively about dental visits. Avoid horror stories and speaking of the "needle". Dental visits are fun these days!
Don't rinse your mouth out with water after you brush - You are washing away all the good stuff!!!
Brushing twice a day, flossing, and regular visits to the dentist! Simple, right?
Sometimes life gets in the way. That is why we pre-appoint our patients 6 months in advance, and we will remind you closer the time when your appointment is due.
This way 2 years doesn't fly by, and you are boarding a flight to the holiday of your.... nightmares with dental pain.
We can help keep your dental costs consistently low with regular check ups and professional cleans. Nobody likes nasty surprises that can run into the thousands to treat.
We also reserve emergency appointments daily for our regular patients. If you have a problem, we guarantee we will see you on the same day. We are there for you when you need us most.
Full exam, clean & bitewing x-rays and other special tests for a flat fee of $250 - less any dental health cover you have.
We are currently accepting new patients, however we have begun limiting this. Once we have opened our second sister clinic in Broulee we will be able to accommodate many more new patients!
We are very excited with some new technology we have purchased recently. Two of the coolest things in dentistry! The newest generation of CEREC same day crown technology - this includes a digital scanner (no more impressions!), a milling unit and a furnace. This means we can manufacture our own crowns, bridges & implant crowns in house, start to finish in less than 2 hours! There is about 40-60minutes in the middle of the appointment where you can watch us scan, digitally design, mill and fire your crown. Really incredible technology that is a game changer for our patients.
Our team of dentists, auxiliaries and referral specialists provide all necessary treatments to keep your mouth feeling and looking great. We believe in doing it right the first time. We stand over the quality of our work. This means when we do something it's done to the best of our ability, and designed to last. It's why we warranty any dentistry we do. The exception being any temporary fillings or other semi-permanent treatments. We are also available to offer second opinions.
Our general treatments include Fillings, Fissure Sealants, Onlays, Posts & Cores, Ceramic or Porcelain Crowns, Gold Crowns, Bridges, Zirconia Crowns, Root
Canal Therapy & Dentures. Costs vary and are based on your individual
requirements and situation. We will inform you of any and all treatment costs. For the most part the cost of general dental treatments are in the range of a couple of hundred to a couple of thousand dollars.
We are commonly asked for costs of wisdom teeth extractions. Usually the cost is about $1500 for 4 wisdom tooth extractions removed under local anaesthetic.

Lifestyle Treatments allow you to free yourself from a dental issue that is holding you back - whether the issue is social, emotional or comfort based. These are treatments that are not necessarily needed from a dental health or functional perspective but are more what you want. Incidentally, they can have big positive effects on your general health, nutrition and oral function. They are also lots of fun for us to do because they can have such wonderful impacts on the quality of people's lives!
People's wants vary. Examples include:
to have confidence eating without fear of a denture falling out
to smile freely in photos
to eat comfortably & to taste food fully again
for things to be healthy and vaguely human
to maintain things as they are for as long as possible with minimal investment
some don't know what they want, but know they don't want pain or problems in the future.... the list of wants and desires is endless.
We are all different. We realise that. When we sit down and have a chat about what your specific wants and issues are, we can discuss the options that fall into your budget. People are often surprised by how many options are available to them, thanks to modern techniques and advancements in dental materials.
For the most part the cost of general dental treatments are in the range of hundreds to a couple of thousand dollars, whereas more complex or lifestyle type treatments typically cost from thousands to tens of thousands of dollars.
Such treatments include
- Dental Implants - which can mean getting rid of a denture and having a fixed set of teeth again
- Ceramic Veneers or Porcelain Laminates - which can create a beautiful natural looking smile as part of a smile makeover or oral rehabilitation.
