Our Services

 

Q.  “What is a Comprehensive Examination?
A.    At Surrey Hills Dental Centre, our comprehensive examination not only includes looking at the teeth, but examination of the face, smile, jaw joint, soft tissues of the mouth, gums and bite.  We will also be taking photos – inside & outside the mouth.  We may also require radiographs on either side of the mouth for thorough diagnosis and study models.
 

Q.  “Can I have a clean (dental hygiene) with my check-up?
A.    This depends on what YOUR preference is.  If this is what you prefer, we would be more than happy to do so.  However, Dr. Chan prefers to gather all the necessary information during your 1st appointment (Comprehensive Examination) to make a proper diagnosis & treatment plan.  This is because we are unsure what sort of clean or hygiene you require – whether it’s straightforward or if you have advanced gum disease.

 


Q.  “What is the difference between Surrey Hills Dental Centre and other dental practices?”
A.    Surrey Hills Dental Centre prides itself on quality of care and doing what is in the best interests for the patient and the longevity of the tooth.  We take our time to explain your dental conditions, the cause of those issues and during your treatment to conserve good tooth structure.  We also use rubber dam during our procedures to maximise the life expectancy of your restorations (fillings).  So ask yourself:  does my dentist use rubber dam?

 


Q.  “How do I know how much out-of-pocket I will be, for the appointment?
A.    This depends on the diagnosis and treatment plan.  Patients are quoted before the start of any treatment.  If you have private dental health insurance, it is difficult to know exactly how much out-of-pocket, because there are numerous insurance companies and different levels of cover.  Patients do receive a personalised treatment plan, which details the anticipated cost, tooth numbers, surfaces and item numbers, if they would like to inquire about the expected rebate.

 


Q.  “Why does the cost of crowns vary between practices?”
A.    At Surrey Hills Dental Centre, we use only the very best materials and local ceramists.  Some other practices may send work to be completely fabricated overseas.  This is something that patients may need to clarify with their dentist.  In fact, depending on the type of crown, there is a 5-year warranty on the underlying substructure at Aesthique.  You will receive a Certificate of Warranty (& Authenticity) after the restoration has been cemented.  Don't gamble for perhaps substandard work - demand the VERY BEST!
