As an experienced local Mackay dentist we aim to make ‘Your Comfort Our Priority’.
We understand the concerns you may have in visiting the dentist.
Perhaps, you’ve had an unpleasant experience in the past and this has made you a little scared. Or maybe, you’ve let your dental health slide a bit and you’re a touch embarrassed.
It could be that you are new to Mackay and you’re a little shy or wary with new people.
Whatever your concerns are, we do understand.
Our aim is to make ‘Your Comfort Our Priority’ and make your dentist visit as easy and as comfortable as possible.
To do that we allow plenty of time for your appointment so that we can chat about any concerns you have. We take lots of time to listen to you and to put you at ease.
We like to think it’s the extra little things that matter too…
We offer new magazines to read while you are waiting, party bags and iPads for your children, blankets and SMS confirmation of your appointments.
If you have a busy schedule and can’t get here during normal clinic hours, call us (during clinic hours) to schedule an out-of-hours appointment.
Our clinic is conveniently located in the Mackay CBD with parking right at the door or within just a few meters.
Your safety and well-being are of paramount importance…
Infection control and cleanliness is of ultimate importance to us. Our infection control is above that of the standards required and we do that by:
- regular hand washing
- barrier protection of surfaces
- instrument sterilisation, tracking and traceability
- well-maintained facilities with uncluttered surfaces and smooth lines, which allow for thorough cleaning and disinfection
- we even clean our air conditioning unit regularly!
Comfort and technology…
Our special intraoral cameras show you what your mouth and teeth look like, this helps you to understand your diagnosis and options for treatment.
Plush leather padded dental chairs have been selected with your comfort in mind.
Ceiling mounted televisions in the treatment rooms provide entertainment (and a good distraction) during your appointments.
We are pleased to inform our patients that we provide full disclosure of practice ownership and the dentists who are working in the practice; there is no ‘taking chances’ of which dentist you will see at your next visit.
A Team Of Experienced Locals
Our dentist and team are all locals who grew up in this area. All are well trained, credentialed and experienced and are here to help you, and to make your visit to a dentist comfortable and stress free. They are happy to answer any questions you may have.
Although our clinic is relatively new, we are not new to Mackay or dentistry.
