There’s no escaping the difficulty in finding a general dentist in Deakin Canberra you can trust. It’s like finding a good doctor, or a decent hairdresser that doesn’t have you walking out with a short back and sides, regardless of what you asked for! Finding a great dentist is important and, here at Deakin Dental, we know this and have made it our mission to treat all our patients like they are one of the family, in our relaxed and fun atmosphere. Read on to find out what we have to offer.


The first step

Locating a general dentist in Deakin Canberra might seem like a guessing game with search engines ready to offer you a myriad of practices. But if you come to Deakin Dental, we won’t treat you like another number. We care about you and your specific needs and we will treat you accordingly. On your first visit, we will take a full medical history, asking you any relevant questions we need to get a full picture. We will also carry out a new patient examination, which is comprehensive and will enable us to understand your dental requirements. We are QIP accredited, so you know we have the seal of approval to take great care of you!

With a range of treatments available we can have a chat about what your options are, based on your wishes and requirements. Most importantly, our friendliness and warm reception should be an experience unlike any other. We also run an eco-friendly practice, using biodegradable products wherever possible, and we recycle paper, cardboard and plastics used. Mercury is filtered out of our water and we go even more green by putting any food waste in our compost. Deakin Dental really is an experience like no other and we’d love you to be a part of it!

What treatments do you offer?

We have an extensive range of treatments including general comprehensive care. We will check your mouth, teeth and gums are healthy with thorough examinations, scaling, advice on flossing and X-rays; we will keep an eye on your general oral health. We also offer sleep dentistry for nervous patients and emergency dental care. To improve the appearance of your teeth if they have been stained through drinking or smoking for example, we have teeth whitening, and we do cosmetic work with veneers, crowns and bridges. Alongside this, we also offer oral surgery, oral cancer screening, paediatric dentistry, mouthguards for sports, and root canal treatments. We even have TMJ therapy. If you have pain in your neck or ears, a tight jaw and maybe headaches and poor posture, we can protect your teeth from grinding or clenching in the night and help you to get an improved quality of sleep with a better posture. Not bad for your local dentist, right?

What to expect

Upon arrival, there will be some forms to complete, but there’ll also be some TV to watch or music to listen to in our relaxing waiting areas. Coming to visit Deakin Dental will be an experience that you will want to have again and again – bring your friends and family along too! So, come and join us; relax, unwind, meet new people and leave smiling your best smile.
