Dental

Building healthy smiles for life.

The Health Hub dental practice began over 30 years ago. It started from a humble 2 chair practice and has blossomed to a 12-chair clinic and onsite dental laboratory.

We are a highly qualified and passionate team dedicated to optimising your dental and oral health.

Services and treatments

We provide a huge, up to date, ethical and clinically proven range of dental services for you and every member of your family from the age of 0 to 100! Our goal is to keep your teeth strong and healthy for life.

We provide customised treatment options and recommend keeping a healthy mouth through six monthly check-ups unless advised otherwise by your health professional.

To assist in preserving your smile, we use intra oral cameras, hygienists, CAD CAM and produce same day crowns.

Our dental practice provides services for all members of your family including examinations and scaling, mouth guards, oral cancer checks, dry mouth syndrome, splint, sleep apnoea devices, root canal therapy, crowns, implant crowns, dentures and bridges. Cosmetic dentistry services such as veneers and bleaching are available.

There are no-gap check-ups, x-rays, scaling and cleaning for TUH Health Fund members depending on your cover and up to your annual limit.

While our professional dental team strives to provide you with the highest quality of care and service, there may be occasions when we don’t meet your expectations. Our work comes with a one-year warranty provided you’ve kept up with regular check-ups and oral hygiene practices (at home or at the clinic) and have not contributed to the failure of the work in any way.

If you feel dissatisfied with treatment you’ve received, you should first discuss the matter with your treating dentist or our dental manager.

If the matter is still unresolved, you may wish to contact the Australian Dental Association (ADA) Community Relations Officer, or the Health Quality and Complaints Commission (details below). Both officers have conciliatory roles in trying to resolve the situation to the satisfaction of all parties.
