Preventative Oral Health

Why keep fixing problems if it is possible to prevent problems in the first place? Our goal is to make sure that you have healthy teeth for life. Imagine, no problems!

At Blockhouse Bay Dental we work in partnership with you to help you acquire the habits that will turn around the health of your mouth and help to maximise the benefits of treatment.

Don't get us wrong we still want to see you regularly but ideally, there will be very little to do other than preventative work and routine cleaning.
