Here are 10 things that you can expect as one of our patients:
Continuity of Care for the next 20 Years
- We have years of experience in this industry, but are still young enough to be practicing for the next 20 years and beyond.
- As Bayside locals, we look forward to bumping into our patients at the shops, whilst dropping the kids to school and when down on the bay.
Impeccable Infection Control and Safety

- Protective bibs that completely cover your garments so we never splatter you or your clothes.
- Refreshing wipes at the completion of treatment, leaving your face clean and fresh.
- Pillow Top Chair – We’ve found the softest, most comfortable chairs to help you completely relax during your treatments.
- Digital X-Rays – Digital technologies now allow us to reduce your radiation dosage by up to 90%. This also allows us to manipulate the final image so that we can make the most accurate diagnosis for you, all in less time.
- Intra-Oral Cameras – We have a camera specially designed to take pictures of your teeth so we can show you exactly what is happening inside yours or your child’s mouth. The image is instant and can be viewed on our large, overhead monitor.
Each year, we spend several hours ensuring we are up to date with the latest research and knowledge in clinical dentistry. This is done so we can provide the highest quality of dental care.
We subscribe to a number of dental publications and are members of the following professional bodies:
- Australian Dental Association
- Australian Society of Occlusal Studies
- Australian Osseointegration Society
- International Team for Implantology
We ensure that all of our patients can make a truly informed decision regarding their treatment by providing:
- A comprehensive range of options for treatment.
- Photos of your teeth so you can see exactly what is going on.
- Clear and concise explanations of treatment.
- Information Sheets on a variety of topics.
Thanks to “The Wand”, we can now make the numbing process more comfortable than ever before. We also use numbing paste on the gum to further enhance your comfort.
We understand a lot of patients dislike the numb feeling, particularly when it lasts for the rest of the day or night. When appropriate, we also use a modern anesthetic that has a shorter half life. As a result, you get terrific numbness whilst at the dentist and it wears off much faster than the standard anesthetic.
Flexible Hours and Emergency Care
We realize that everyone is busy and trying to fit in a dental visit can often be difficult. That is why we have made booking an appointment as easy as possible by offering the following:
- Early appointments starting at 8.00am.
- Late appointments up to 7.00pm.
- Saturday morning appointments.
- After hours emergency on call service for existing patients.
- Immediate Health Fund Rebates with HICAPS.
Multiple Entertainment Options
Your comfort and relaxation is our priority, so we provide:
- Ceiling Monitors above the dental chair so you can catch up on your favourite DVD. You can also travel to Europe and beyond by using one of our photo galleries.
- Noise cancelling headphones so if you really hate the sound of the dentist, just block us out!
- Great magazines, as well as up-to-date newspapers.
- We will always ensure that you receive treatment that matches both your needs and your budget.
- We pride ourselves on providing conservative, minimally invasive treatment.
- We strive for all of our patients to have a great experience at the dentist while leaving with a great smile, for life!
