It is a good idea to email your x-rays to us prior to your visit.



Please see the section on information for new patients for more details.

13. I am pregnant! Is it safe for me to see the dentist?

Dental treatment is safe during pregnancy. X-rays and elective treatment are best avoided especially during the first trimester. If extensive treatment is required, we will always get clearance first from your Gynaecologist prior to commencement.


14. Do you see children?
Yes!! We absolutely love seeing children! Children should have their first checkup by the age of 1. Good dental habits (brushing teeth twice daily and flossing) should be started early. Avoid scheduling appointments during or close to nap times as this can make your child fussy and uncooperative.

15. I am having a cold/flu right now, should I still come for my dental appointment?

If you have scheduled elective treatment or maintenance, it may be better to reschedule to when you are no longer contagious. Nasal congestion can make it difficult for you to tolerate dental treatment.
