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 annual exams, regular
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.
