How your dentist in Mackay puts you first
As a family-owned practice we like to treat you as part of the family too, putting your needs first by providing you access to the latest in dental technology in our multiagency, superclinic, which also offers late night and weekend appointments.
At Northern Beaches Dental, we’d love to invite you to visit us to find out first hand what we can do for you. But in the meantime, here’s a round-up of what you can expect at our clinic.
The latest in technology
We’ve invested in the latest technology to improve our services. Digital scanning provides 3D images, including future projections, so we can show you what we’d like to do and how it will look at the end of treatment before we even start. The digital age also brings digital x-rays, which reduce your exposure to radiation, while highly accurate microscopes give us greater detail to accurately diagnose.
We are based in a superclinic that houses GP services through to skin specialists. So if we find something that needs to be checked by your GP, we can quickly refer you to them, sharing pertinent information with your permission, to provide a safety net for you and your family’s health. Equally, if your health practitioner believes an issue has a dental or oral health cause, they can refer you to us for treatment as your dentist in Mackay.
