Dental care and dental visits should not feel like a chore.


When you are reminded that it is time to attend your biannual check-up, you shouldn’t feel apathy or dread. A trip that revolves around dental hygiene can and should be fun!

No, we aren’t joking! And at Deakin Dental, we aim to make every trip that you make to us as relaxed and enjoyable as possible.

At Deakin Dental, our dentist in Canberra we will take every care to ensure that you and your family are looked after in our surgery. We offer a comprehensive introductory package for all new patients, allowing you to get the most out of your first check-up with us. Coupled with the advice we offer all of our patients relating to dental care, what more could you want in dental surgery?

Of course, this isn’t all we have to offer new patients at Deakin Dental! Here, our dentist in Canberra runs down some of the other advantages of joining our surgery.

Emergency dentistry

We know that from time to time, your teeth may run on their own schedule.

And, should you wake up with a throbbing tooth or lost filling, our emergency dentist in Canberra will make time for you by staying late or altering our appointment schedule to get you out of discomfort.

After all, we want to make sure you are able to carry on with your day-to-day life as usual, and if that means we stay late after regular hours, so be it!

Online guides

In recent times, more services have become available online in light of the events surrounding social distancing.

And, while you can’t really get a tooth filled online, our team at Deakin Dental is proud to be able to offer our patients a range of online PDF guides, which cover an array of different areas in dentistry.

Everything from a guide on root canal treatment to tips on bleaching your teeth at home, we have written jargon-free guides to help you better understand these procedures.

Nervous patients

While we will always try to make your trip to our surgery fun, we know that for some people a trip to a dental surgery can set off an anxiety response.

Therefore, our team takes great pride in looking after those who need a bit of encouragement to get into the dental chair, by offering you music to listen to, a television to watch or sedative options.

Online forms

At Deakin Dental, we have removed the annoyance of sitting in a waiting room with a clipboard filling out a form whilst trying to remember your medical history from scratch.

Using our website, you can download and complete the new patient forms, along with your medical history and simply send them to us when you are done.

Friendly team

Regardless of whether you are a new patient or have been with us before, our team will always aim to make you feel comfortable and welcome when you come to Deakin Dental.


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