They say a smile is your best asset, so best we look after it together.

Having a regular dentist means they can get to know you and this can improve their ability to provide you with an optimal level of care. Your dentist is the best person to let you know how often to return. For example, a person whose dentist finds a new area of tooth decay at every visit may be recommended to attend more often than a person who has reached middle age and has never experienced tooth decay.

 

AIRFLOW® GBT Technology – New & improved way to clean teeth!

Don’t let fear or discomfort keep you from maintaining your oral health. Experience the future of dental care with AIRFLOW® – where comfort meets cleanliness.

Are you tired of the uncomfortable, painful dental cleaning experiences of the past? Say goodbye to harsh vibrations, unpleasant scraping, and those dreaded high-pitched noises. Unlike an ultrasonic scaler, which is the standard method for teeth cleaning, the AIRFLOW® is a non-contact tool, which uses a controlled stream of air, warm water, and superfine powder, providing a comfortable way to clean and polish your teeth! – It’s the ultimate spa therapy for your mouth!

Call us on 1300 709 076 and book in your AIRFLOW® teeth cleaning appointment.

Treatment is dependent on completion of a comprehensive medical history. Airflow GBT may not be suitable for all patients. 

*Terms and conditions apply, see here.

Our clinic has taken additional safety measures to ensure that all patients are receiving the care that they need in a safe and protected environment such as:

  • Hand sanitising stations located throughout the hub
  • Updating your medical history
  • Minimised contact and maintain social distancing
  • A 10-minute full clinic disinfection process between patients
  • Using additional personal protective equipment such as headwear and faceshields
  • Preforming a pre-treatment mouth rinse
  • Hand hygiene on departure
