Preventive Dentistry is committed to the establishment and maintenance of healthy mouths, and a preventive approach to the control of all forms of oral problems. Regular hygiene and examination appointments are integral to the achievement of these goals, and it is recommended that most people attend these preventive appointments 6 monthly.
Our dentists, Dr Stephen Lising, Dr Scott Park, Dr Deanne Carr and Dr Ann Duong, will discuss all available options for treatment and provide a detailed written treatment plan for all complex treatments. The treatment plan will consist of a detailed description of the proposed treatment, an appointment schedule, the associated item numbers and costs and the required payment schedule.
General dentistry services include Examinations, Fillings, Root Canal Treatment, Crowns and Bridges, Implants, Porcelain Veneers, Teeth Whitening, and Smile enhancements. Our accredited dentists can also provide Invisalign Orthodontics and Anti-Snoring Devices.
Our dental hygienists Rachael Walton, Shannon Gill, Annika Johansson, Tanille Evans and Sarah Dudley provide continuity with patient care and maintenance which helps to reduce the need for dental restorations.
Tennille Evans and Sarah Dudley are also qualified as dental therapists which allows them to provide dental treatment such as: fillings and fissure seals for children up to the age of 19.
Our friendly dental assistants will make you feel welcome and relaxed during your dental appointments, and our front office team are always available to help schedule appointments and assist with your enquiries.
