We understand that not every patient can attend a dental appointment during normal working hours. That’s why we are open later in the evenings. We also understand that patients who are genuinely in a dental emergency need priority attention. That’s why we try to keep some available appointments every day for patients with a dental emergency. Our dentists will also try to attend the emergency even if not working.
Supernova Medical Centre Dentist is located in a highly accessible location on Sayers Road near Wyndham Village Shopping Centre. We do have onsite car parking for patients who may require wheel-chair friendly access.
To provide best possible care to patients, we provide general dentistry such as check-ups, whitening, scales, cleans and fillings. In the event that specialist treatment is required, we do refer patients to the best possible specialist.
For most patients, the most affordable and cost-effective approach to dental care is good dental hygiene, a healthy diet and regular visits to the dentist for check-ups and cleans.
To assist in making those regular visits (and indeed all dental services) as affordable as possible, our dentists have Preferred Provider Arrangements with major health funds and some participate in government funding schemes such as Veterans’ Affairs and The Child Dental Benefits Schedule. All of the dentists provide written estimates for all treatment plans before treatment commences so that patients are fully informed as to expected fees and charges.
