You may feel worried by the thought of having to visit the dentist, but rest assured that you are not alone.

We wish to provide excellent dental service for all and we want everyone to enjoy happy, healthy smiles for life.
We recommend that you visit our general dentist Glenside with the whole family once every six months, more often if you are prone to dental issues, to help maintain a beautiful healthy smile that you can be proud to show off.

Addressing dental anxiety
We have many different techniques and strategies to help ease your anxieties and thanks to significant advances in dental technology, dental treatments and procedures are now less invasive with minimal discomfort or pain. Our friendly, kind and caring general dentist Glenside will get to know you and find out more about your worries with regard to the dentist and help you settle your nerves so that you can begin to enjoy the experience, until you become accustomed to visiting the dentist regularly to address your dental needs.
Regular appointments at our practice
At your first appointment we will take a medical history and find out more about you and your lifestyle. We will take X-rays of your teeth to help us identify any dental issues and we will carry out a thorough examination of your mouth to look for any signs of decay or disease. Our general dentist Glenside will be able to advise on dental hygiene and how you can improve the health of your teeth. Our dentist will also advise that you should visit the hygienist every six months for preventive dental care. This includes a close examination of your gums and the removal of plaque and tartar which build up on your teeth and over time result in an array of dental issues. The hygienist will provide further advice on how to maintain healthy teeth and gums. If you undergo both appointments on a regular basis you will be able to enjoy a healthy and happy smile for life, as any underlying problems will be identified from the outset and therefore can be dealt with quickly and successfully before they can cause further complications. Speak to us today and find out more about the treatments and procedures that we have available to help you achieve and maintain a healthy and happy smile for both yourself and your family.
