The waiting room: For the younger children, we have a play corner to keep them entertained. Alternatively there is a TV to keep the young and old entertained. The waiting room is well stocked with magazines and comfortable chairs to make your stay enjoyable.

Sterilisation: Our staff are trained to the highest standard of infection control, overseen by Dr Katie Tran who was the former chair for infection control for Queensland Health, Metro North Oral Health Service. We have very stringent infection control protocols to ensure that we are compliant with and exceed current standards.

Treatment room: Our treatment rooms have been specifically designed with our patients comfort in mind. Large open spaces, ceiling mounted TV, comfortable dental chair and the latest technology all help to provide a relaxing environment. This allows our dentists to provide the best possible care to our patients.

OPG room: For the convenience of our patients, we are able to take orthopantomogram x-rays (OPG) onsite rather than being referred elsewhere. An OPG is a simple two dimensional x-ray that allows us to have an overall view of your jaw, teeth and joints. It is an excellent tool for dental diagnosis.
