Our 3-step approach to Dental Care


1. Your mouth, Your choice

We believe in putting the patient in control at DentalCare Clinics. We explain what's happening in easy-to-understand terms without judgement or lectures. Then we give all your options.  You make the choice.


2. Pain-free dental treatments

At DentalCare Clinics our policy is that, "nobody has to suffer to have a beautiful smile". From gentle cleaning techniques to completely pain-free anesthesia, we are confident that we can deliver a pleasant dental experience to you.  For really nervous patients, we have an experienced and gentle dentist in Stanmore and also an anesthetist that visits the practice to provide sleep dentistry.


3. Prevention is better (and cheaper!) than cure

Check-ups every 6 months for oral hygiene maintenance will allow our team to identify issues before they spread and become a problem. It also saves you money! While preventive dentistry may not completely eliminate your need for treatments, it dramatically reduces the risk for having costly ones.
