Providing preventative care at every stage of your dental journey.

For people looking for a team to walk alongside them on the journey to their best oral health it’s essential to find a general dentist clinic you can trust. With so many dentists and confusing information, how do you make this important decision for you and your family? At Dapto Family Dental, we believe we have the answer. Choosing the right dentist is based on a few essential principles:

  • Trust - Knowing that you can believe and rely on the information you are being given by your dentist and oral hygiene therapist.
  • Communication - Feeling your needs are heard and the team responds to these with treatment options tailored for you, not just a one size fits all approach.
  • Sincerity and care - Nobody wants to feel like they’re a number so sincere care is the hallmark of the right dentist for you.
  • Modern techniques and technology - There are continual changes in dental techniques and technology and receiving the best care means feeling confident your dentist is remaining abreast of these.

We’re proud to say that the team at Dapto Family Dental is truly representative of these principles. Offering a full suite of general and preventative dentistry services from regular hygiene cleans to general exams, through to root canal treatment and removal of wisdom teeth, we are here for you and your family. Our ethos is based on a ‘prevention is best’ approach, that’s why we have a full hygiene team, led by Yung Starling. Together with practice co-owner Dr Nitin Dhanani, they are helping local families in the Wollongong region achieve their best oral health with affordable dental care.

Preventative dentistry: Here for all your family’s dental needs

Did you know that daily brushing and flossing at home should be complemented with regular visits to your dentist for a professional clean? This is a vital part of an overall preventative maintenance program that will keep your oral health in good shape and identify any issues before they become more significant - and often vastly more expensive problems.

Gum disease

While most of us know when there’s an issue with a tooth. Typical signs are sensitivity or pain. However, this isn’t always the case with gum disease. Often referred to as ‘silent’, gum disease - or periodontitis - can cause irreversible damage if not treated in time. What’s the best way to know if gum disease is an issue for you? Make an appointment to see your oral hygiene therapist today.

Custom mouthguards

We talk about ‘prevention is best’ and that’s certainly the case when it comes to looking after your child’s teeth if they’re playing sport. A custom fitted mouthguard can prevent serious trauma, such as teeth being impacted, broken, or worse - being knocked out completely. We also do mouthguards for adults too, so if you’re a weekend athletic warrior, get in touch and we’ll help prevent injury to your teeth.

Wisdom teeth removal

Commonly affecting young adults between the ages of 17 and 25, wisdom teeth removal involves the extraction of the wisdom teeth located at the back of both the upper and lower jaws. If wisdom teeth causing aggravation are not addressed, it can lead to gum infections, crowding, and problems with chewing. Although wisdom teeth removal has earned a questionable reputation, advances in dental technology and techniques mean this procedure can be undertaken with greater ease and comfort for patients.
