Preventative dental treatments in Greensborough
Our Greensborough dental clinic places a strong emphasis on preventative dentistry. We encourage our patients to visit for a regular dental examination every six months. This allows us to monitor the health of the teeth and gums and address any issues promptly.
We aim for minimal intervention to reduce the need for more extensive and costly dental, endodontic (root canal) or periodontal (gum disease) treatment later. Patients visit us from Greensborough and surrounding areas such as Eltham, Montmorency & Watsonia to receive preventative dental care.
We focus on preventing future dental issues
We pride ourselves on being a family-focused practice. For some families, we’re seeing third and even fourth-generation patients for their dental care.
Visiting us for regular check-ups means we examine and assess dental health. We also review the health of your gums; this is called periodontics.
We use X-rays to evaluate the areas between the teeth and other mouth parts not visible to the naked eye. These images are very important for procedures such as wisdom teeth removal in our Greensborough dental surgery.
We also advise on correct brushing and flossing techniques, and appropriate dietary concerns.
To avoid troublesome issues from developing, we offer emergency dental appointments when required.
Bulk billed dental covered by the Child Dental Benefit Schedule (Medicare)
The Commonwealth Government Child Dental Benefit Schedule (CDBS) provides $1,052 over two years to eligible children aged 0-17 years, for basic dental services under Medicare.
If your child or children are eligible for paediatric dental treatment under this program, please advise us when making their appointments and bring your Medicare card with you when they visit our Greensborough dental surgery. We can then bulk bill directly to Medicare with no out-of-pocket cost to you for services covered by this government scheme.
