Why choose us?
While there are many general practices and some dedicated dental implant providers on the Central Coast, we are unusual in being able to offer a diverse range of services at the highest possible level. We strive for excellence in all that we do, whether that be in our dentistry or our customer service.
Our exceptionally experienced clinicians have the highest levels of skill, integrity and concern for your wellbeing. With a combined total of over 60 years of general dental experience and over 20 years of experience with dental implants between our dentists, there isn’t much we haven’t come across or treated in our time!
Commitment to best practice
Our main concern is to do the best dentistry possible and our commitment to excellence ensures all of the best treatments under one roof. We are a mercury-free dental practice with a particular interest in minimally invasive and biomimetic techniques to preserve as much healthy tooth substance as possible when restoring teeth.
We provide advanced treatments which would not normally be carried out in many general practices, enabling us to provide a wider range of treatment options to our patients.
Investment in technology
You cannot do a great job without the best equipment. We pride ourselves in providing services with state-of-the-art equipment. Our modern, uncluttered surgeries are furnished with the latest equipment and maintained at the highest standards.
We are fully computerised and have digital x-ray machines in every surgery which produce up to 90% less radiation than traditional x-ray machines machines. This technology also allows us to provide our patients with an on-the-spot diagnosis. In addition to this, we have the latest dental operating microscopes which allow the dentists to see a clear magnified image when providing treatment.
We are very experienced users of CEREC CAD/CAM technology and make full use of this advanced equipment to restore teeth to achieve maximum health and aesthetic results.
Training and education
Most general dentists go straight from dental school to private practice. While this is satisfactory, our dentists have done extensive postgraduate training giving them knowledge and skill above the average. Because of this, we are able to provide our patients with treatments that are often not carried out in a general practice. The most notable of these are dental implantology, CAD/CAM dentistry and endodontics. Dr Appleton has lectured dentists in endodontics and CADCAM dentistry on both sides of the world.
A gentle and caring environment
We aim to transform your dental visit into one that you will actually enjoy and we make every effort to exceed your expectations for comfort, care and kindness within our practice. Most people get nervous seeing a new dentist but some patients have a genuine phobia about treatment. We are trained in looking after even the most nervous patients and make certain that your experience is gentle and relaxed.
Guarantee of success
Many of our treatments are covered by our Gunyah Guarantee which will be discussed with you before beginning treatment.
Strict adherence to infection control
We regard your safety and wellbeing above all else. Our sterilising equipment is state of the art and we believe our infection control procedures go well beyond current guidelines. Recent publicity in the national press has highlighted that this is not always the case, with the poor practices of some Sydney dentists brought to the public’s attention. We can reassure our patients that we are a fully accredited practice going above and beyond the standard requirements for infection control and cleanliness.
After hours service
We appreciate that it is not always possible to attend for dental appointments during normal office hours so we offer extended opening hours with appointments available from 7am to 7pm and some Saturdays too! These appointments are by arrangement only and can be organised through our website or by calling our friendly receptionists.
Dental emergencies happen at all hours and if you are a patient of the practice we will endeavour to help you no matter when it is required. Please see the website for further details.
We are proud to be an independently owned dental practice free from any link with the increasing number of dental corporate bodies. This means that our dentists are here to stay and will provide you with continuity of care. Our dentists are also free from corporate targets and budget constraints so can provide you with the best treatment, carried out with the best materials and at a pace to suit you.
