About dental checkups and cleans

Here are the answers to some of the most common questions we get about dental chekups and cleans. If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call or send an email.


How often should I have a dental checkup and clean?

Everyone is different, and we can work out how often you should have a check-up based on the condition of your teeth and gums. This is usually every 6-12 months, but may be less depending on your needs.

Why are regular dental checkups so important?

Regular dental checkups allow our dentists and oral therapists to identify and treat any issues in their earliest stages, to prevent them from progressing into bigger ones that are more complicated to treat.

Why do I need fluoride?

Fluoride makes the surface enamel of your teeth more resistant to tooth decay, and its benefits are best felt with daily brushing using fluoridated toothpaste, and concentrated fluoride during 6-monthly teeth cleaning.

Why should I use a soft toothbrush?

Effective removal of bacteria buildup on our teeth only requires a light amount of pressure, and a soft toothbrush is all that is needed to do this without the risk of damaging the surfaces of your teeth.

Why do I need x-rays?

X-rays allow us to examine areas of your mouth that we are unable to see with visual inspection of your mouth. Examples may include tooth decay under a filling, or in the spaces between your teeth.

Do you bulk-bill under the Child Dental Benefits programs?

Yes, we bulk-bill our expert dental care for all children and teenagers we treat under the Medicare Child Dental Care Benefits Scheme.

Do you offer payment plans?

We offer interest-free payment plans so you can get started with any treatment you need straight away, and spread the cost out over easy to manage repayments.

Your first checkup with us 

What to expect

After you meet our dentists, we will go over your medical and dental history so that we have all the necessary information to ensure you get the best treatment for your individual needs. Our dentists will discuss your treatment expectations before examining your teeth and gums. We’ll take an x-ray showing your teeth and supporting structures, and areas that can’t be viewed in your mouth. Our dentists will develop a treatment plan that includes a number of options specifically designed for you. Your lifestyle, wants and needs are important considerations in making the choice that’s best for you. Your dentist or oral health therapist will then professionally clean your teeth. We strongly believe in patient education, so we’ll discuss oral hygiene techniques and recommend the next steps in your oral health journey.
