We’ll See You Promptly

We strive to provide treatment straightaway for emergencies. We’ll make every effort to get you in on the same day. It’s possible that you may want to see a specific dentist who is booked up for that day. you’ll have an option to see another one of our dentists. If there is no available appointments, we have a close relationship with another dental centre here, and we’ll be happy to tell them about your situation and arrange for an appointment so that you don’t have to delay receiving treatment.

Options to Help You Relax

If you’re feeling stressed or anxious, we want to make sure you get the care you need to restore your oral health. We can always provide the emergency care that you need to relieve your particular situation, then have you return for the additional treatment you need. For example, we can give you a temporary filling and have you come back for a follow-up to get a permanent filling. Or you may need painkillers or antibiotics right away, then we can provide you with them and have you book in for an appointment in the future.

When you return, we can provide you with oral sedation, twilight sedation or have your treatment performed in hospital depending on your needs and preferences. For oral sedation, we’ll first need to coordinate with your GP. Twilight sedation is also referred to as IV sedation, which is done in the dental chair. General anaesthetic is arranged in conjunction with the hospital, where our licensed oral surgeon will perform your treatment.
