Who we are?

If your child has been referred to us, it means they require specialist care, performed by a specialist. We are different to a general dental practice. We have undergone years of formal specialist training in the field of paediatric dentistry.

Individual Care

Our specialist, Dr Dan (Dr Daniel Ford) is a health professional in the purest sense. He is dedicated to the health of children, enjoys making a difference, and is humbled by the trust parents place in him. You are assured of specialised, individual care.

We offer specialist treatment under local anaesthetic in our rooms, under sedation in our rooms and in hospital, and under general anaesthetic in hospital. Your specialist will discuss these options with you at the time of consultation.

We take pride in utilising state of the art equipment, a dedicated sterilising room and low dose digital radiography. We also boast a variety of “green and clean” initiatives when it comes to power and water conservation – our way of acting locally for the planet.
