At Feilding Dental Centre we are passionate about prevention – preventing tooth and gum problems in the first place. We prefer to be the fence at the top of the cliff than the ambulance at the bottom – experience shows that this approach is better, cheaper and less stressful for all concerned.
We take our oral healthcare responsibility seriously. We have a professional duty to inform patients about the health of their teeth and gums, and this we promise to do. When necessary we advise any treatment that is necessary for oral health – healthy teeth and gums. If no treatment is required (yes, it is possible) then we say so. We care about a healthy smile for every one of our patients.
What patients do with the information we give is up to them. Patients are free to either follow our advice or to ignore it. We genuinely hope for the former as we know from experience that tooth and gum problems do not resolve by themselves.
Patients who attend for regular exams, cleanings and have good home oral health care habits experience far fewer problems than those who attend for emergencies only. Costs and stress associated with delaying treatment are always greater than preventive treatments.
Research is increasingly showing a link between oral health and general health – another reason to ensure that the mouth is healthy. A healthy body needs a healthy mouth.
We appreciate the support of our patients, and are honoured to have been past recipients of the Feilding Excellence in Buisness “Supreme” and “Best Professional Business” awards, in recognition of our preventive philosophy and team professionalism.
