How We Care For You

Our Dental Philosophy
There are so many benefits to having great dental and oral health and we’d like to help you achieve this goal.  When your teeth, gums and mouth as a whole are in excellent condition you will be free of dental and gum disease, your teeth will feel and look good and you will feel so much better!  It’s our privilege to help you by providing quality dental treatment, advice and the knowledge for you to ensure your teeth and restorations last as long as possible.  Our goal is to prevent disease and maintain excellent dental health – we want you to be free of decay, disease, pain or infection.

Providing Dental Treatment
We understand that in the past, dental treatment for many people was a less than pleasant experience.  We pride ourselves on making sure that your visit to us is as comfortable as possible. 

      • We apply a very effective ‘numbing cream’ prior to any local anaesthetic – which is always done carefully and gently by Dr Thai. 
      • We routinely use Rubber Dam and mouth prop during restorative treatment such as fillings.  A Rubber dam is a protective barrier
        which stops water and debris entering the patient’s mouth and it also means you don’t have to worry about constantly trying to
        keep your mouth open. So believe it or not, you can relax or even have a snooze! 
      • Communication between you and the dental team is important – we want you to let us know if you are ever uncomfortable
        because there is plenty we can do to make you feel more at ease. 
      • We know that there are other places you may rather be!  So we can tailor your treatment appointments to suit your time
        constraints.  Most people find that they can complete their treatment in fewer appointments by doing as much as possible
        in longer appointments.

On Going Care
Once treatment is complete, we all want it to last as long as possible.  The most effective and value for money approach to maintaining great dental health is with an ongoing maintenance program.  Each individual will be assessed according to their needs but most patients will benefit from a six monthly cleaning to maintain good gum health and examination to review treatment completed and look for any new concerns.
