“No ‘hidden costs’ when it comes to your treatment plan - We believe that where ever possible patients should know upfront how much their dental procedures will be and offer complimentary written quotes that are valid for 3 months to prove it.”
Dr Darryl McCarthy, Principal Dentist

We offer a variety of services including examinations, cleans, fillings and a host of other general dentistry treatments. Find out more about how we can help you achieve the smile you deserve.
We recommend check-ups every six months to maintain optimum health. During your general check-up we will examine your mouth and teeth. The process allows us to gain an understanding of your oral progress. By examining your decay, tooth damage, jaw alignment and gum health we can have a better idea about your oral health and required treatment. Each individual patient’s needs may differ but generally an oral assessment will usually go as follows…
This includes an analysis of your:
Tartar and plaque can become trapped in areas of the mouth and left on the surface of the teeth, which can cause decay and further damage to your enamel. Because of this, most patients prefer to receive a scale and clean during their visit. This is the process of removing build-up from the teeth that cannot be removed by simply brushing and flossing.
There are a number of situations where the use of radiographs (x-rays) is essential for proper diagnosis and treatment. This is because often times the problem with the tooth cannot be seen with the naked eye.
Here are a few things radiographs are used for:
The human eye cannot see the areas where many dental problems first begin. Radiographs however can reveal what is happening beyond the surface of the tooth and under the gums.
Some patients come in with a specific requirement; they have a tooth that is giving them some grief or is broken, and they are interested in finding out the cost for repairs. Others come in for a check-up and may not have been to the dentist for years.
Often times patients are surprised by the low cost – they’ve come in saying that they haven’t been to the dentist in a long time and they feel as if their mouth is in terrible shape. In reality they probably only need a good clean with a couple of fillings and they are good to go!
