Hills Dental Group encourages patients to jointly take responsibility for their dental health.
We will help you formulate a long term plan to maintain good oral health for a lifetime. The underpinning philosophy of the practice is to encourage the maintenance of good health through preventive dentistry and active dental health promotion. This requires a personal approach for each individual situation, but in every case we aim to eliminate the two most common dental diseases, decay and gum disease.
Frequently this will involve routine maintenance visits with one of our five experienced dental hygienists who will assist with dietary counselling, oral hygiene instruction and the removal of dental calculus and plaque. This enables us to focus on establishing a sound foundation for a healthy and attractive smile.
Our dentists are trained in all aspects of general dentistry with particular emphasis on pain control techniques to help remove any anxiety, and with the assistance of a friendly team of dental assistants and administration staff, we aim to make each visit a pleasant and comfortable experience. We have a policy of only using dental materials which we consider to be as safe and as durable as possible and some years ago abandoned the use of dental amalgam as a filling material. We recognize that some dental problems are best dealt with by a specialist and we will arrange referrals when required to ensure the best treatment possible.
We aim to provide personalised dental care in a relaxed and friendly environment.
