Building Works Update!

It’s great to see our new building proceeding rapidly now. The concrete slab was poured a couple of weeks ago and the frame is now going up. As you can imagine, it is a very busy and sometimes very noisy building site.  We really appreciate your patience whilst we complete the construction to improve our office and increase the dental services we can provide for you.

Meet Anne Prest!

Most of our patients will have met Anne who joined the Healthy Smiles team in 2018 as one of our front desk coordinators.

Anne will greet you with a smile on your arrival and has a naturally caring nature with a desire to provide the best customer service to all our patients. Anne works with our patients to ensure they have a full understanding of the dental treatment options provided by our providers, coordinate your appointments, and will happily discuss our payment plan options at Healthy Smiles.

Anne is very experienced in working with anxious patients and ensures that the necessary time is taken to explain all options available and their dental journey is as smooth as possible, and all needs are met.  She will inform you of our sedation options and coordinate all sedation appointments, ensuring that all your questions are answered.

Anne has a love of the great outdoors, enjoying frequent camping trips and day hikes with family, friends and her dogs. She is also a volunteer Life Saver throughout the summer months, an activity which her whole family participates in and is passionate about.

Over the last couple of months, we have hosted a clothing drive, collecting donations for our local Salvation Army in Nunawading. We received clothes, books, bedding, toys and more! Our donations have come from patients, our Healthy Smiles Team and even passers-by! We delivered 6 bags to this great charity – it’s always great to give to the local community!

Everyone who made a donation, went into the draw to win a $250 Healthy Smiles dental care voucher.

Our lucky winner is the Anderson Family! Congratulations!

In April and May, we are running a food drive – feel free to drop in some non-perishable items to donate.

Patients at Healthy Smiles

Our hygienist Victoria had the pleasure of providing Zoom In-Chair Teeth Whitening for Nicole. Nicole had a very special reason for deciding to have her teeth whitened – marrying the man of her dreams! The whole process took 2 hours and Victoria ensured that Nicole was comfortable throughout the appointment. Nicole did not only achieve her desired results – her 3 shade whiter and brighter smiles exceeded her expectations! If you wish to find out more about teeth whitening, please call us to arrange a 15-minute consult with one of our dental hygienists to assess if you are suitable for teeth whitening!

Acupuncture possible treatment for dental anxiety

Researchers have found evidence that acupuncture could help people who experience dental anxiety.

Dental anxiety affects up to an estimated 30% of the adult population in countries worldwide. Patients can experience nausea, difficulty breathing and dizziness at the thought of going to the dentist, during an examination, and following treatment.

Reasons behind dental anxiety can be various, such as fear of pain, needles or anaesthetic side effects, as well as embarrassment or feeling a loss of control.
