Choosing a Dentist Should Not Be a Snap Decision

Choosing a new dental practice is not a decision that is as easy as it sounds. After all, there are plenty of qualified dentists to choose from in most suburban areas, and most of them offer the same or very similar services. Whether the choice has been triggered by poor service or treatment at an existing practice, or simply because of a move to another area, most people agree that finding a new dentist is something they consider carefully.

First Treatment Experience Vital for Ongoing Confidence

Often the initial appointment is made on the recommendation of a friend, family member or work colleague. The decision to continue treatment with the new practice is often conditional upon the experience had at the first appointment. At Rochedale Dental, every member of the practice, from the experienced dental professionals to the administration and reception staff knows this and understands how important it is to put the new patient at ease from the minute they first make contact.

The practice believes that their patients deserve no less than the quality of care they would give to their own family members. This is their guarantee, and they seek to establish relationships with patients that foster a long-term approach to dental health. To demonstrate how serious they are about exceeding patient expectations the practice employs three treatment coordinators. Their role is to meet with the patient away from the dentist chair, answer questions related to their treatment and assist with financial options and health insurance issues.

Oral Health Therapists Trained in Child Psychology

Young children can be apprehensive when attending dental treatments, so it is important when choosing a dentist to ensure that the practice is a family dentist accustomed to treating children and allaying their fears. The Rochedale Dental treatment team includes oral health therapists trained in child psychology to provide dental care for toddlers, children and adolescents. Introducing children to dentistry at a very early age gives them the confidence to attend regular visits without fear, as they see it as a normal part of their family routine.

Rochedale Dental uses the latest technology and equipment to not only provide the best of care, but also to reduce dental anxiety through the use of better pain management techniques such as The Wand. This is an amazing computerised device that slows down the delivery of anaesthetic and delivers it to the required areas more accurately. The Wand is virtually painless and can also eliminate the numb feeling many people dislike. For anxious patients, the use of nitrous oxide (happy gas) and local anaesthetics allows treatments to be performed in a relaxed and comfortable manner.

The practice offers both general dentistry and cosmetic procedures to enhance the patient’s smile and rebuild or repair any missing or damaged teeth. Teeth whitening, veneers, crowns, bridges, dental implants, orthodontics, cosmetic smile designing and Invisalign are just some of the procedures that are offered by Rochedale Dental. Their website at www.rochedaledental.com.au has a comprehensive explanation of all procedures as well as other information that will make choosing them as your family dentist a foregone conclusion.
