The third visit is about a week after you visit both clinicians. They will prepare a proposed treatment plan and sit down with you at a NO CHARGE appointment to explain what is happening in your mouth and any implications it may have. It is a great opportunity to ask questions and get a greater understanding of your health.
A Dental Hygienist/Oral Health Therapist is a specially trained and skilled auxillary who focuses specifically on preventive care for all ages and the assessment and management of gum disease (periodontitis). They work with the Dentist to provide an integrated service providing you with the education and oral care techniques tailored to your particular needs. The frequency of continuing care appointments are customised for the individual patient needs either at 3, 4 or 6 months. Regular preventive appointments minimise the need for complex dental procedures and will save you money. Our advanced schedule appointment system ensures that our patients get a time and date that suits them.

At Suter Dental we believe introducing kids to a positive dental experience sets the tone for every dental visist for the rest of their lives. We take the time to show off all our cool equipment and answer any questions they may have. Kids love it when we let them have a go at putting on gloves and masks and we regularly swap places and let them be in control of the dental chair. It is never too early to bring your child and it is vital that they feel comfortable in their surroundings. Every time we interact with your children we get to know them and they get to know us, it building a partnership for life. We excel at giving your child the encouragement they need to maintain great oral health. We understand that different ages have different needs and love watching our patients grow. In fact we even have a few on staff now! We can arrange group appointments so family members can all be seen in one visit if you prefer.
