1. Premium Services
First and foremost, choosing comprehensively qualified dentists who offer both specialist dental services and general dentistry is vital.
2. Registered Specialists
The best kind of dentist will provide access to registered specialists in their specific fields, including endodontists, prosthodontists, orthodontists, periodontists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, and paediatric dentists.
Registered specialists have completed additional university training beyond their bachelor degree in dentistry.
At Smile Solutions, in bringing together under one roof the full range of registered specialists we do away with the need for patients to spend time, energy and funds in going from one practice to another to receive various treatments.
You can check your practitioner’s qualifications and registration on the website of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) or call 1300 419 495.
3. Emergency Dentistry
A dentist should offer after-hours emergency dental services to all patients.
Smile Solutions’ friendly staff can cater for unexpected emergency dental visits at short notice. Our clinicians are skilled at handling all emergency situations such as toothache, chipped or broken teeth, infections, denture repairs, impacted wisdom teeth and more.
Smile Solutions is available 365 days of the year and we can be reached on 0400 369 359 for A/H assistance.
4. Blue Diamond Invisalign Provider
If you are considering undergoing Invisalign treatment, you should look for an Invisalign provider that has been accorded Blue Diamond Provider status.
Smile Solutions, as Australia’s largest provider of Invisalign, has recently been awarded as the country’s only Blue Diamond Invisalign Provider.
In order for Invisalign providers to attain Black Diamond Provider status they must annually treat 150+ cases per year. This Super Elite status provides a very clear indication of a dental practice’s training and expertise in treating patients with Invisalign.
5. Sleep Dentistry
If you experience anxiety or phobia around attending a dentist you should choose a practice that provides sleep dentistry (also known as sedation dentistry).
Sedation dentistry involves the administering of a sedative, either intravenously or via a mask. The treatment induces a drowsy and dream-like state and you will have no memory of your dental procedure afterwards.
At Smile Solutions, you will be cared for by a Board registered specialist anaesthetist for all sleep and sedation dentistry.
