Best Canberra Dentists

By Emily Morris - 15 November 2017 38

Looking for a reliable dentist? You’ve come to the right place.

An unskilled dentist can cause more harm than good. So, when it comes to dental issues, you want the very best. Whether you need a full-blown root canal or a routine clean, it’s worth doing your research, and discovering a dentist you can trust.

In this article, we’ll share with you our top three picks for skilled dentists in the Canberra region. If your favourite isn’t listed, let us know in the comments section below. And, if you’ve had a dental nightmare, share that too. Your feedback will help our readers have the best possible dentist experience.

Without further ado, let’s get into it.

What Makes a Reliable Dentist?

Some dentists do amazing work. Others… not so much. In fact, bad experiences with unskilled dentists can cause many of us to fear the dental office.

How can you avoid a dodgy dentist? Look out for the following traits:

  • Experience. The best dentists in Canberra have years of experience. Remember, the more experience a dentist has, the more tooth-related issues they’ve seen. That means whatever your problem, an experienced dentist can surely help.
  • Skilled. Experience doesn’t always result in superior skill. The best dentists are masters of their trade. They can navigate the complexity of their tools, and achieve the best possible results with minimal discomfort.
  • Fast. The truth is, visiting the dentist isn’t exactly pleasant. The faster it’s over with, the better. The best dentists can perform whatever service you need quick.
  • Thorough. The best dentists are thorough, and never cut corners. They fix the issue at the root, rather than providing a Band-Aid solution. This results in longer lasting dental health and hygiene.
  • Up-to-date with dental innovations. The medical industry is always evolving, as new technologies revolutionise traditional processes. The best dentists have the latest and greatest equipment, which in turn provides you with a faster, more comfortable, more effective dental solution.

Wow ! you can afford to go to a dentist

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.

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

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).

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.

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.

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.
