At Gisborne Family Dental, we believe in looking after you as a whole person, not just as a mouth of teeth. We take into account everyone’s past circumstances, present situations, and try to “crystal-ball” the future, so that we can tailor our general dentistry services to each individual.
We’re all the same. And we’re all different.
If you compare a 49 year old vegetarian accountant, and a 19 year old university student living out of home, they may both have the same number of teeth, tongue, jaws and maybe even the same model electric toothbrush.
But we understand that they will have vastly different lifestyle habits, daily routines and dental challenges. All these result in different sets of health risks, and therefore our philosophy is to always help patients find the best ways to maintain their best self.
Preventative dentistry is about creating health, not just fixing diseases.
For too long dentistry in general has focused on fixing broken teeth, or waiting for something to go wrong before stepping in. Let’s be honest, when we get the frantic toothache phone call, everybody gets stressed.
Our focus will always be to equip you with knowledge and information, so that you’re empowered to firstly look after yourself, and secondly be able to make the right dental treatment decisions when required.
We meticulously examine your teeth for early warning signs, so that smaller interventions are required to nip things in the bud. You will ultimately have a far better experience and also save on future pain and costs.
In our mind, this is hands down a win-win.
How we do general dentistry at Gisborne Family Dental
We are extremely thorough, even in our general dentistry check ups and cleans. We take time to get to know you, how you live. Most importantly, we want to know what you want for yourself…. and we listen carefully.
We then gather all the information clinically including photos and x-rays and we sit down and we think about what the best general dentistry service for your unique situation is , because we care.
Lastly, we clearly discuss your dental options with you, so that you’re empowered and feel confident in choosing what’s right for your own goals, budget and lifestyle.
