What Should You Look for in a Great Dentist?

Deciding on your dentist should be approached as a long-term proposition as this will provide you with consistently high levels of service. We refer to this as continuity of care, a concept known to provide you with higher quality, more conservative and better planned dentistry.

Gentle and Caring Female Dentist

Everyone wants a gentle and caring dentist. Our all-female dental team with our female dentist, Dr Barbara, offers just that. Described by one of her patients as having ballerina fingers, her compassion and care is warm and gentle. We take great pride in our consistent gentle treatment we believe comes from having an all-female, highly experienced dental team.

Trust and Family

Keeping the same long term dentist also gives greater health benefits. When your dentist is familiar with your medical history and dental history, they can provide  more accurate, tailored treatment to meet your individual needs. Our Brisbane dentist, Dr Barbara, will be familiar with your dental work and how you react to pain – if you have a good tolerance or you are extremely nervous.

Getting to know your dentist will help to build trust. Knowing you are not going to be in pain, you will understand what treatment you are going to have, and what the costs will be,  means you can relax and actually have a pleasant experience. Once you have developed a good relationship with your dentist, you are able to trust in your dental care as well as the dental care of your family. Expert children’s dentistry is offered as part of our holistic dental care approach – great teeth from a young age means great teeth as adults!

Experienced Preventive Dentistry

It is also important you look for a dentist that offers a wide range of treatment options with a great deal of experience, and with a preventive dentistry focus. Preventive dentistry is key to protecting your dental work for life. There is no point in investing in great dentistry if you find it hard to look after your teeth. Preventive dentistry education provides you with the tools to protect your teeth. Seeing the same long term dentist results in better prevention and less treatment, personalised to your needs.

Cosmetic and Restorative dentistry

Having a dentist that is highly experienced in Cosmetic and Restorative dentistry is also a key desire. When a whole range of onsite treatments are provided, treatment is more streamlined, conservative and better planned. Preventive dentistry, restorative dentistry and cosmetic dentistry all overlap and can be provided together in single appointments for greater comfort. Our Brisbane dentist also has a special interest in the individual needs of  men’s dentistry, so treatments can be personalised for better outcomes.


At the end of the day, a great dentist that is close to you means if you have an emergency or need to organise an appointment in a lunch break, making it happen is easy.  If you are looking for a Brisbane dental clinic, then consider booking an appointment with us.

Seeing the same great dentist for life will ultimately save you time, money and a whole lot of trouble. Our female dentist, Dr Barbara, will give you comfort, peace of mind and higher quality dentistry in Brisbane.
