When you’re looking for a new dentist, we know how difficult it can be to find the perfect practice. A simple search engine hunt may bring up some names of practices, but that’s not what you’re looking for, right? You want to know that you are going to a dentist Canberra who is passionate about dental treatments and giving you the treatments that meet your specific needs. At Deakin Dental, we’re a super friendly practice that prides itself on making a trip to see your dentist Canberra a fun experience, rather than a chore. From the moment you enter the building, we want you to feel at ease and our friendly staff are here to help you relax and feel at home.


What can I expect when I come to Deakin Dental?

If you are visiting Deakin Dental for the first time, we will give you a one hour examination. This is an in depth consultation with our dentist Canberra where we will discuss your goals for your smile and where we will find out about you. We will take a full medical and dental history, so we’ll be getting to know you really well on this first visit! We will also examine your mouth and check for signs of oral cancer, as well as looking at your jaw joint, muscles, tissues and, of course, your teeth. But, we won’t stop there. We will also do an in-depth bone and gum examination, as well as a complete dental chart of your mouth, so we have got the full picture of your individual mouth – we’re all different after all! Finally, we will also take digital X-rays and photographs of your teeth and mouth. No wonder it takes an hour!

From all of this information gathering, the end product is a treatment plan. This will be devised based on the discussions we have with you and the examinations that have taken place. This treatment plan is therefore completely tailored to your needs with your goals in mind for your smile. We want you to feel at ease that whatever treatment is recommended, it will be suggested as a result of your input, as well as your specific dental needs which have been ascertained through thorough examinations.

How is Deakin Dental different?

When you come for your treatment, you may fancy watching a favourite T.V. show or listening to some great music. Here at Deakin Dental, we are all about making you feel at home, so we offer these options! For nervous patients, we also have NuCalm to help you relax and feel more at ease and we will never rush a treatment if you are feeling nervous. Our philosophy is all about a patient-centred approach and we want you to get the treatment you need in the way that suits you. If we need to take a lot longer, you can binge watch a box set and we get you the treatment you need!

What do I need to do?

If you want to come and see us, book in for a new patient consultation. We will provide you with some forms to complete before coming to see us and we look forward to welcoming you to our dental family!

All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
