How we work with you and your family

As a patient at Best St Dental you will be well looked after.

Our professional and focused team provides our community with consistent, high quality care in a modern, state of the art, friendly environment with a strong commitment to your overall health and well-being. Our light and spacious patient lounge has been designed with your comfort in mind and includes a children's corner for the young ones.


Your first visit to Best St dental is very important. You will be required to complete a medical history and personal details form. All information will remain strictly confidential.

 

Your comprehensive dental examination includes:

·       - A comprehensive oral cancer screening to identify tissue abnormalities inside the mouth or areas of potential increased risk.

·       - Check of the TMJ (jaw joints) for any clicking and a check of the muscles of the jaw for signs of tenderness, which could be related to tooth grinding or clenching.

·       - A periodontal screening to determine whether any form of gum disease is present.

·      -  A full dental charting and examination of all teeth to look for health of existing restorations and check for any new decay.

·      -  Additionally, low dose digital radiographs (X-rays) are often required to aid diagnosis. They enable us to visualise the bone height between the teeth and check for cavities that are not visible when looking in the mouth.

 

If there are any findings, a high-definition intraoral camera will be used to show you what we can see. Options are discussed so that you are able to make an informed decision about the best care for you and a personalised plan is made.

 

Active maintenance:

To ensure good oral health is maintained we invite you to continue active maintenance. Our team of hygienists and dentists will see you every 6 months to complete the important oral cancer check, scaling of your teeth to remove any calculus (tartar) and plaque build up as well as any staining. A fluoride treatment is then applied to strengthen the tooth enamel and reduce sensitivity.

Evidence now strongly links good poor oral health with increased risk of diabetes and heart disease as well as other general medical conditions.

At Best St Dental you can expect;

  • An appointment as soon as possible

  • A written itemised estimate of professional fees

  • Treatment options tailored to your needs and budget

  • Care and support from all of our staff

 

Payment is required on the completion of each visit. For the convenience of our patients we are able to offer the following payment options.




EFPOS, Credit Card, Cash or Cheque

We treat patients under the new Medicare Child Dental Benefits Schedule - claim up to $1000 every 2 years for eligible children 

We accept Department of Veteran Affairs




We are pleased to offer HICAPS so that patients in a health fund can claim directly at our practice and pay only the gap for services

Our relationship to our clients does not extend to their health funds. Although we are happy to provide itemised estimates for treatment, the amount of rebate awarded varies from fund to fund and is a matter for patients and their respective funds. 



Cancellation Policy:

Scheduling of an appointment is considered confirmed at the time it is made. Please consider that appointment times have been set aside specifically for you.

Missed appointments or late arrivals are disruptive to both our practice and other patients and we respectfully request that you reschedule only in times of genuine emergency.

Best St Dental has a cancellation policy. If you are unable to make a scheduled appointment, we ask you to provide us with a minimum of 48 hours notice. We regret, that if an appointment is missed or cancelled within 48 hours (other than in extenuating circumstances), a cancellation fee will be charged, or a holding deposit will be required for your next appointment. This deposit will be deducted from your account next time you visit the dentist. 

We aim to remind you of an upcoming appointment in plenty of time.
