We know it can be daunting not knowing where to start when it comes to your oral health. That’s why we offer an exclusive “first time” assessment.

At an initial examination the patient will receive the following standard services for the special price of $180.00.

  • An oral examination
  • Scale and clean
  • Two diagnostic x-rays
  • Detailed treatment plan

Our dentists will discuss and provide you with a detailed treatment plan along with a comprehensive quote before commencing any treatment.

What payment options do you have?
Payment is required on the day of the consultation. We accept:

  • Cash
  • Credit cards (not Amex or Diners)

  • Dept of Veterans Affairs Gold Card
  • Private Health Insurance

If you have private dental insurance you will be able to claim a rebate from your dental insurer. The Hi-caps facility is available so you can claim immediately, and then you only have to pay the gap.

Can I use my Healthcare card or Pensioner Concession Card?
These cards are eligible in a public dental clinic. To find your nearest public dental clinic visit https://www.dhsv.org.au/clinic-locations/community-dental-clinics

How often do I need to visit the dentist?
It’s recommended that clients visit the dentist every 6 to 12 months.

Do you provide sedation or general aesthesia?
No, we do not provide this service

Why do I need x-rays taken?
X-rays allow the dentist to detect problems in areas not visible during visual examination, for example a cavity under an existing filling.

 What’s an OPG?
An OPG is a panoramic or full jaw x-ray, which displays all the teeth on a single image.

Do you remove wisdom teeth?
In most cases yes we can. Firstly we would need to organise an appointment for a consultation and OPG. Once we have taken the OPG the dentist will be able to let you know if we can remove at our clinic. If we cannot we will refer you to an Oral Surgeon.
