The power of prevention

At the Healthy Smile Centre, we would rather see less of our patients. That sounds like a strange philosophy but here’s why. It’s not because we don’t want to spend time with you or because our dentist in Erskineville just wants to be left alone.

It’s actually because we know that short, regular maintenance check-ups are the best way we can serve our patients. Those that come in 2-3 times a year for a check, clean and polish are much less likely to develop problems further down the line, cutting down on the need for lengthy and time-consuming restorations.

Our dentist in Erskineville believes in teeth for life. We believe it is possible for you to carry the same set of teeth with you throughout your adult life. But for this to happen, both you and our dentist in Erskineville have a part to play.

From our side, we do all that we can to educate you on how to take care of your teeth. We don’t just hand you a box of floss at your check-up and expect you to get on with it. Our appointments are a little longer than the average dental check-up, to make sure there is enough time for our dentist in Erskineville to give you tailored advice to take care of your teeth, depending on your life circumstances.

From our many years’ experience of working with patients, we know that each set of teeth is unique. That’s why we test products ourselves, so we can recommend them with confidence, knowing that they are exactly right for you. For example, we’ve tested more than 90 types of toothbrushes.

And you also need to play your part, which means following the advice of our dentist in Erskineville at home. After all, if everything goes well, you’ll only come into the surgery a couple of times a year, and you spend every day with your teeth. Take on board our diet, lifestyle and home care advice and there’s every chance you’ll be able to keep your teeth for life. Call into our dentist in Erskineville today to find out more and discover the power of prevention for yourself.
