We want you to love going to the dentist!
Marmion Dental Care is proudly family owned and operated, by locally grown dentists who genuinely care about the dental health of our patients. It's our goal is to provide you with a better dental experience in all aspects of your dental health. We pride ourselves on providing a friendly and professional service, always seeking to ensure we provide our patients with a comfortable and relaxing dental experience.
Our Team of highly skilled dentists, dental hygienists, and clinical staff use only the very latest equipment when looking after your dental health. All of our treatment rooms are newly refurbished, very comfortable and ultra modern and our dental equipment is of the highest quality to ensure optimal patient care.
At Marmion Dental Care, we use innovative and progressive technology to ensure our patients are provided with the most up to date equipment available. We even have our own specialised computerised x-ray machine and OPG equipment on site, this makes dental appointments even easier as there is no extra trips to the Radiologists!
Marmion Dental Care now offers digital OPG, a panoramic or wide view X-ray of the lower face which displays all the teeth on the upper and lower jaw on a single digital film. The OPG provides an image which shows the number, position and growth of all the teeth including those that have not yet surfaced or erupted. The OPG is different to the small close up (intra-oral) X-rays dentists take of individual teeth. An OPG may also reveal problems with the jawbone and the jaw joints.
Dental X-rays are often necessary when assessing your oral health care. These images provide a small picture of the teeth and bones that often the dentist can not see with the naked eye. Most dentists recommend having these small bite wing X-rays (small intra-oral x-rays of your back teeth) taken every two years during your oral health examination to prevent any decay progressing unchecked.
At Marmion Dental Care, digital X-rays means that we can have your x-ray image appear on the computer screen within 5 seconds of exposure. Not only does this save time, but it also dramatically reduces the amount of radiation you mouth is exposed to when compared to a manually developed x-ray film. It is also possible to zoom in and enlarge the digital image which makes diagnosis far easier as well as being able to give our patients a much better understanding of their oral health conditions.
Digital Intra-Oral Camera
Intra-oral cameras are a valuable tool for patient education and case documentation. Patients may not always accept treatment but an intra-oral camera can allow patients to see what their dentist can see. A problem such as a broken tooth can be easier to spot and impossible to ignore when it is magnified on a computer monitor or TV screen. Shaped like a small wand, many intra-oral cameras are highly portable and can easily connect to a computer.
Marmion Dental Care is committed to providing all of our patients with exceptional dental care. When a patient cancels an appointment, without sufficient notice, they often prevent another patient from being seen. Please be mindful that if you need to cancel your dental appointment with us, we required you to provide us with a minimum of 24 hours’ notice. If prior notification is not given, a cancellation fee may be charged for the missed appointment.
There will be an $80.00 fee incurred for short notice (less than 24 hours) of cancellations, or non-attendance of your dental appointment.
Personal Health Information
Our practice is fully computerised and all personal dental health information, including treatment notes, photographs and dental x-rays and images recorded by your Dentist or Hygienist is kept strictly confidential and secured.
