Preventive
Equal emphasis is placed on preventing dental diseases as treating them. Education and advice will be tailored to each individual to ensure your oral health is stabilised and maintained. 
Restorative
We strive to use the latest restorative materials to ensure longevity rewarding your time and effort spent in the dental chair. We use a superior intra-oral camera to take before and after shots allowing you to see and judge the difference. 
Periodontal 
Managing oral soft tissues and dental bone is extremely important in preventing mobility and eventual loss of teeth. Recent research has also linked uncontrolled periodontal disease with heart disease, respiratory disease, diabetes and low birth weight. All patients are carefully assessed and managed to maximise chances of arresting any periodontal disease. 
Prosthetic
For unrestorable or missing teeth we offer you all the current measures available for replacement. These include implants, dentures, crowns and bridges. We use very experienced local technicians and the best materials possible for all our prosthetic work.  
Endodontic
Root canal therapy allows retention of irreversibly infected and necrotic teeth. This procedure is aimed at relieving you from pain. High standards are adhered to at every stage to ensure maximum success. 
Childrens Dentistry
A pleasant first experience at the dentist is instrumental in paving a future of good oral health and regular attendance, we take this very seriously. We see a large number of younger patients therefore our practice is well equipped and our staff highly experienced in this field. 
Teeth Whitening

Extractions

Depending on your dental requirements these appliances can be accurately made through quick and painless impressions of your teeth. We send the impressions to a quality local laboratory with prompt turnaround times.
