At Fernvale Dental, we are passionate about our local community having access to quality dental care. We strive to offer the highest quality treatment, whilst keeping our prices as affordable as possible for everyone.
Our modern practice has been caring for the Somerset Region region since opening in 2012. We offer an extensive range of services, from general family dental to cosmetic procedures, as well as full mouth rehabilitation.
We strongly believe that preventative dentistry is the key to a life-long, healthy smile. Our friendly staff strive to create a relaxed and welcoming environment so you feel comfortable visiting us on a regular basis to ensure early detection for possible problems. This approach means you can be treated in a minimally invasive manner which saves you time and money!
Our Purpose and Core Values
We strive to create wonderful Dentistry and make it as affordable as possible for our local community. We strive to build healthy smiles, and to create an environment that makes it possible for everyone to share their smiles with us.
Digital intraoral x-ray machines ensure our dentists always have the very best diagnostic tools on hand. We also use digital and intraoral photography to allow patients to view exactly what the dentist sees. This makes it much to visualise and discuss treatment options and oral hygiene techniques. In fact, our entire surgery is ‘digitised’, ensuring there is never any accidental loss or misplacement of your dental records and images.
Our newest and most exciting piece of technology is our Cad-Cam CEREC machine. Gone are the days when crowns required multiple appointments and weeks of waiting. No more gooey mouth impressions and having to wear a temporary, and suffer through multiple anaesthetics!
We now are often able to prepare the tooth, digitally scan the area and design your crown while you watch, or better yet, grab a coffee and relax! There is then only a short wait while the crown is milled and fired before it is ready for inserting. All in the one day, in the same appointment!
This technology allows our dentists to control the entire procedure, and does not rely on an offsite technician who may not know your bite the way your dentist does. We believe it’s a game changer, providing high quality results efficiently and much more conveniently.
To assist in a lifetime of healthy smiles, it’s paramount to introduce your children to professional dental care from an early age. The Australian Dental Association (ADA) recommends you begin making dental appointments when the first baby tooth becomes visible or your child reaches the age of one. Regular check-ups from this age will help them to feel comfortable in the dental chair and create a friendly relationship with the dentist and dental assistant.
Our modern treatment rooms are equipped with state of the art, overhead flat screen entertainment units for your comfort and relaxation. You can choose to watch a movie or listen to music of your choice.
For those who require it, we are happy to work with your GP to create a sedation plan that’s tailored to your needs.
