Diagnostic Services Examinations (check-ups)
We use our clinical skill and technology to diagnose any oral health problems or concerns you may have. Clinical examinations, oral cancer screening, radiology, periodontal probing.
In some cases in-depth discussion and time is required to explain, understand and plan dental treatment.
Sometimes patients want to have a dentist to provide an opinion and treatment plan option for more complex dental care.

Dental Hygiene Services
(also known as scaling, tartar removal or dental cleaning). Our Registered Dental Hygienists provide our patients with comprehensive dental hygiene therapy including disease education, scaling, root planning, and oral health care instruction. If you have problems with sensitivity during hygiene treatment, our hygienists are trained in the administration of local (freezing) and topical anaesthetics (gel or rinse) to make your visit as comfortable as possible!
Restorative Services (fillings, crowns, bridges)
Whether you have a newly diagnosed cavity, an old filling that needs replacement or a broken tooth, our dentists have a restorative option to suit your unique case. Ranging from traditional or composite(tooth-colored) fillings to crowns, we strive to educate our patients about their unique treatment options.
Crowns are done to repair fractured teeth, rebuild teeth weakened by repeated filling, and to restore full function to a tooth. Cosmetic crowns are done to correct overlapping, discolored or misshaped teeth.
A fixed bridge replaces one or more missing teeth. It is cemented in place.
Coating placed into the deep grooves on teeth as a preventative treatment where cavities are most likely to occur.
(root canal treatment)
If the nerve inside a tooth is dying or has died then a root canal may be chosen to save the tooth. A root canal is essentially the remove of the tissue from inside the tooth – the root remains, but the tooth itself is no longer alive.
We offer our patients a wide range of surgical services ranging from simple extractions, gum surgeries and biopsies of oral lesions to more complicated procedures such as the removal of impacted wisdom teeth and endodontic surgeries.

Veneers are porcelain shells bonded to the tooth to correct defects, discoloration, close spaces or reshape teeth.
