We are a specialist periodontal and dental implant practice dedicated to providing treatment for gum, periodontal disease and dental implant maintenance. Our hygienists work under the direction and protocols of Dr Michael Danesh-Meyer, a specialist periodontist, to provide a premier standard of care.

Our aim is for you to achieve excellent oral health therefore your treatment will be personalized to your individual needs – from simple scaling, which involves calculus and stain removal to advanced periodontal therapy. We will also provide you all the latest advice and recommended oral hygiene aids so you will know how to best keep your gums healthy and your teeth clean and white every day.
Our dental hygienists use the most modern, evidence based methodologies and leading technologies. Intraoral cameras to monitor your oral hygiene. Air powdered polishing is a method of professional mechanical tooth cleaning. The system emits a combination of air, non-abrasive power and water on to the teeth, providing a level of cleanliness that could not be achieved with conventional paste polishers. This pain-free, non-invasive treatment is recognized as one of the most efficient and affective methods of cleaning and combating extrinsic discolouration. Removing even the most persistent of stains. Air-powdered polishing is much faster than traditional polishing methods and, due to its non-invasive nature, can be safely used on restorations and implants.
We also use a state-of-the-art therapeutic polishing powder that has the unique properties of simultaneously sealing exposed dentine to provide quick long-term relief from dental hypersensitivity, while removing stains and restoring the natural lustre and appearance of healthy teeth.
