All signed up for dental funding

By 4 February 2013

That dentistry is not treated like the rest of medicine in this country is a national disgrace.
But moving past that Chief Minister Gallagher has signed a deal with Federal Health Minister Tanya Plibersek:
Ms Plibersek said the Australian Government is investing $5.5 million in the ACT’s public dental system over the next two-and-a-half years to reduce [...]

Help for finding a dentist who will consider full extraction

By 17 December 2012

My partner has had major gum disease and teeth loss, combined with trigeminal neuralgia and TMJ for over 7 years.
Every time we go to a dentist, we’ve been told that the remaining teeth are “fine” to stay in, but after the fourth occasion that the “perfectly fine” teeth have started to fall out, we’re at wit’s [...]

Oral Surgery in Canberra?

By 23 July 2012

I recently visited an oral surgeon in need of some extensive excavation work.  
It was agreed that the operation would involve hospitalisation and a quote for the work was provided. 
This, together with anaesthetist fee and hospital charges came to an amount  in the multi $Ks. 
Checking with Medibank revealed that they do not cover [...]

Any suggested oral surgeon for mucocele?

By 15 June 2012

I know that I can gargle salt water and hopefully it will pop out by itself, but worst-case scenario, can anybody suggest an affordable and trust-worthy oral surgeon who can remove this?
It’s the second time it happened to me, but I got the first one removed overseas and I am not going anywhere until [...]

Looking for a Dental Hygienist & Children’s Dentist

By 27 March 2012

My teeth are filthy and need cleaning.
I would like to find a practice that has a dental hygienist as well as a good children’s dentist so the whole family can attend.

Do dental hygienists exist in [...]

How much does it cost you to go to the dentist in Canberra?

By 8 April 2011

I know there have been a lot of dentist stories on lately, and maybe that’s what made me think, ‘hmmm, haven’t had a check up in a while’. So I picked one close by and rock up for a check-up and clean. I go out to reception, after 20 minutes of prodding and being reminded [...]

Hi all… I am in search of a good family/kids dentist and a good child psychologist.
We moved here not long ago and we are living Northside, but I’m willing to travel if needed. I have called Smile Lounge and also the ACT health dental clinic and there seem to be minimum 2 month wait [...]

Anyone know an excellent dentist in Canberra?

By 28 December 2009

I am interested in hearing about any really, really good dentists in Canberra.  I need some significant dental work (root canal, crown and dental implant) and I have a fear of the dentist. 
I’ve tried a lady in civic but was not happy and so I hope someone out there has a great recommendation. 
If [...]

Who’s your favourite dentist?

By 29 June 2009

The last post on this topic is a couple of years old and maybe it’s time to revise those recommendations as people may have moved or new people may now be the cool talent.  Personally I’m on my third panadol and the ache of a wisdom tooth emerging is starting to seem more like the [...]
