What dental services do they offer?
This is a major consideration when determining which dentist to attend. To save yourself time and money, and ensure the best dental experience, it is preferrable to attend a dentist that offers a wide range of services. That way, you can receive all your dental care under one roof. This will not only save you time and money, but it will enable one dentist to walk you through your dental journey, providing you with the best possible clarity and peace of mind.
Almost all dentists will perform certain services – such as a dental check up or a tooth filling. However, there is a wide range of other services that not all dentists will offer. This could include dental crowns, composite restorations, TMJ dysfunction, bruxism treatment, root canal therapy, sleep apnoea treatment, dental braces treatment, teeth whitening, Invisalign, veneers, dental implants, and wisdom teeth removal. We offer all of these treatments at Haberfield Dental Practice.
Do they offer emergency dental care?
By favouring a dentist that offers a wide range of services, you can safeguard your convenience in the future – because even if you only need a check up and clean now, who knows how your needs will change in the future? The best example of this is emergency dental. By its very nature, we can never predict a dental emergency, but when a dental emergency arrives – such as a lost or cracked tooth – you want to know who to call. Here at Haberfield Dental Practice offers an emergency dental service. We will strive to fit you in as soon as possible on the same day as your call to provide urgent care.
What do the numbers tell you about the dentist Five Dock?
You may want to consider going to a dental practice that has a wide range of experience and that has been serving the community for a long time. This may indicate that they are a trustworthy dentist Ashfield and that they are community focused. Here at our Haberfield Dental Practice, our dental clinic has been around for over 100 years. That’s a whole century of service to the Haberfield community!
We have a highly experienced team that can live up to our reputation as a leading and well-established dentist in Haberfield. You can meet the team on this page.
Consider what sort of reviews they receive online. If you don’t look at the reviews, you are just taking the dentist’s word for how good they are. However, customers will often be more inclined to leave an honest review. At time of writing, Haberfield Dental Practice had a 5-star rating out of 160 reviews on Google.
Do they have a welcoming, modern clinic?
There are a number of decisions and investments your dentist can make to provide a modern and comfortable clinic. How well equipped the clinic is will impact your experience, and a positive experience of the dentist is more likely to follow from a visit to a client-focused dentist. So, how well does the dentist you are looking into cater to your comfort and dental treatment options?
Here at Haberfield Dental Practice, we recently acquired an A-dec chair to ensure maximum comfort for our clients. We also have a TV installed in the ceiling so you can watch Netflix during your examination or dental treatment, while listening with headphones. These are just two examples of how our dentist Summer Hill is prioritising your comfort.
It can also reflect in the equipment we use in the office. For example, we use loupes which are a style of ‘glasses’ that magnifies your mouth during examination or treatment. This helps the dentist to keep their distance, a key consideration during our COVID-19 era, and empowers more precise dental work. Dentists are able to see the shapes they are carving or preparing in the natural teeth while working on restorations, and to make more accurate and complete diagnoses.
Are they a convenient dentist to visit?
Here at Haberfield Dental Practice, limited free street parking is available on Ramsay Street, and patients can also park in the council car park nearby. Public transport, including buses, are available from nearby. We are open from 9am to 5:30pm on Monday to Friday, helping you to fit in an afterwork appointment. We are also open from 8am to 1pm on Saturday for your convenience.
Do they have flexible payment options?
Dental care has a reputation of being expensive, but this does not have to be the case. Some dentists are more affordable than others, and it is advised that you consult your dentist to gain a sense of their price and whether it is reasonable to your circumstances.
You may also wish to look at the offers page of their website, which may outline new deals that they are running currently that make dental care more accessible than ever before.
Also consider whether they are supportive of government schemes to make dental care accessible such as the Child Dental Benefits Scheme and the Department of Veterans’ Affairs Dental Scheme. Furthermore, weigh up whether they have a HICAPS facility and work with major health funds like we do here at Haberfield Dental Practice. Also consider whether you can pay by Afterpay – allowing you to access the care you need now and to pay later, when you are able to.
