Dental Health Week 2017

This week is Dental Heath Week and it’s a great opportunity to promote the benefits of regular dental checks and cleans.

When we say regular, we mean every 6 months. This interval generally allows our dentists to pick up on changes early and tend to any problems with minimal impact (both physically and financially).

It’s true that some people shy away from a regular dental check-up because of anxiety about what the experience might be like. Historically these feelings were fair enough, -Go back far enough and you’d have a blacksmith tending to teeth in between hammering on sets of horseshoes.

Thankfully, we’ve entered an era of modern dentistry where clinics have a much stronger focus on delivering a positive patient experience.

At Dendy Village Dental we’ve modelled the clinic around comfort and calm. We want to surprise and impress you with our approach and friendly manner.

If it’s been a while since you last popped in for a check and clean, please don’t feel embarrassed –We welcome the opportunity to help improve your smile, and be your cheer squad for future dental health.

Make Dental Health Week the start of a good habit for life. Call Dendy Village Dental on 9592 0583 and take the first step.
