COVID-19 Update: All routine dental treatments resumed with COVID-safe plan in place.
Important message to our valued patients:
With the easing of restrictions, from Monday September 28th, we are able to recommence all routine dental treatments including checkups and scale and cleans. For further details or if you have any questions about appointments please give us a call.
In addition to the highest level of infection controls that we have always adhered to, we are taking extra steps to protect the health and safety of our patients and staff members. These include pre-screening of patients over the phone, the use of alcohol hand santisers upon entering the clinic and anti-microbial mouthrinsing for patients prior to treatment, extending length of appointments for each patient to allow safe social distancing, and disinfecting of reception and common areas especially the high-touch surfaces.
Please note: if you are feeling unwell, or have any cold or flu-like symptoms including sore throat, coughs, shortness of breath, loss of smell or fever, or may have been in contact with a confirmed or suspected case, please do NOT attend our clinic. Please call your doctor for advice.

What We Offer.
A dental check up and clean every 6-12 months is essential to maintain heathy teeth and gums. We place a strong emphasis on disease prevention, and will provide you with personalised advice to help you look after your teeth. This may include recommendations for cleaning devices, eating habits, medicated toothpastes or mouthwashes.
Restorations, or “fillings”, can help restore decayed, chipped or broken teeth. In most situations, the material of choice would be the tooth-coloured material called composite resins. They are preferred not only because they look more natural, but also because it is bonded to tooth, it requires less cavity preparation and hence conserving more healthy tooth structure.
Dental emergencies including toothache, swelling, dental trauma, cracked tooth, broken sharp tooth, etc, are seen promptly by one of our experienced dentists.
Veneers, Crowns, Bridges, Dental Implants, INVISALIGN
We offer a range of treatment options to improve, enhance or restore your smile and function. Whether the problem is missing teeth, uneven or worn teeth, stained or discoloured teeth, we can guide you through the process to achieve a beautiful and natural smile.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is a relatively common dental procedure to treat the inside of a tooth where the pulp has suffered damage and becomes inflamed or infected. It is a safe and effective treatment to save a tooth that would otherwise be destined for extraction, maintaining your natural smile and function where possible.
Minor Oral Surgery
We perform most dental extractions and uncomplicated wisdom teeth removal. For difficult extractions and wisdom teeth removals we can arrange specialist referrals for you to see an Oral Surgeon.
