Can you suggest a good dentist in Canberra?

By 25 February, 2014 20

I am a real coward when it comes to dentists and only go when something goes wrong – and it has, a broken filling. Can someone suggest a good dentist who can explain all the options for a dental problem, is gentle and can cope with my silly fears? I live in Turner and would like someone local if possible.

Dr Britta Hannaford at Preventive Dental Options in the City. 100%

Mrs OverLord is morbidly afraid of the dentist, but Dr Britta talks you through everything before she does it, very calm and professional and gives you all the options and works out plans with you.

My impression from these dentist recommendation threads is that everyone in Canberra is awesome because every response will name someone different.

I endorse Preventive Dentistry (in Turner). Everyone there is great: http://www.preventivedentistry.com.au/

For the squeamish, there is a butcher in Dickson who for $20 will fix a broken filling. Tooth removal is a permanent way to avoid going to dentists.

I just got back from a trip to the dentist. My Canberra dentist was too expensive so I went to Thailand.

Absolutely agree about Britta. I used to top the fear stakes, and only went to the dentist if I absolutely had to. Now no fear at all, and go regularly. Highly recommended.

Can’t you? Australia is one of the richest countries in the world, and Canberra one its wealthiest cities. It’s not like you go that often.

Yep, that’s the way to do it, although I went to Vietnam. One-tenth the price, quality just as good, get a holiday as well, and the dentist was actually quite a funny guy.

Don’t get that here. All we have here is over-servicing and stratospheric prices (got to pay for the dentist’s X5 somehow).

I thought people went to Thailand to go to the dentist. And have a holiday as well for the price.

You know youve just opened yourself up to a lecture about saving Australian jobs and this is why Holden closed etc? Someone sooner or later will blame Rudd for expensive dentists too. Any left right debate that follows? All your fault. ;-)

This is definently the way to go for anything beyond a minor checkup. You save a fortune and get a holiday. Australian dentists are just too greedy.

The problem with stats like that is they are skewed by the top 10 or 20% the fact is the vast majority of Australians do not earn 6 figure salaries.
I have always suspected dentists don’t study dentistry because they actually like it or do it to help the community.

It’s called a free market economy. And I was pumping some money into a 3rd world country as well, so no qualms whatsoever.

The age of entitlements for dentists is over….
