Your Trusted Dentist in Wodonga
General dentists are the main dental care providers to people of all ages. At your routine dental visit, you will probably have a thorough examination of your mouth, a professional cleaning, and a discussion about your dental and overall health.
If the exam reveals the presence of tooth decay, you will probably also have a filling in the affected tooth. While common, these procedures are hardly the only services your dentist provides.

When Should I See the Dentist?
Visit your dentist every six months for preventive services—and otherwise, whenever you have a concern about your oral health. You may have a clear signal that something in your mouth needs attention, such as toothache, bleeding gums or bad breath.
Or, you may have heard of a cosmetic procedure that you would like to find out more about or try out. In either case, don’t hesitate to call our Wodonga dental office.
For routine dental appointments, there isn’t one schedule that fits all patients. Depending on individual circumstances, your Wodonga dentist may want to see you twice a year, every three months, or another interval.
Don’t let those appointments go!
Keeping up with the recommended schedule for preventive treatment and practising effective oral hygiene at home are the 2 best ways to prevent dental diseases—and keep your smile looking bright and healthy for the rest of your life.

What is general dentistry?
General dentistry encompasses all the procedures needed to maintain good oral health. It involves regular dental check-ups, cleanings, and routine procedures like tooth fillings. Tooth extractions are also considered to be a part of general dentistry.
What should I do before seeing my dentist?
Your Wodonga dentist wants you to come with a healthy mouth. Brush and floss regularly. This is your first line of defence against tooth decay and gum disease.
Will my dentist refuse to see me if I haven't been taking care of my teeth and gums?
Of course not! But you will need fewer visits to your dentist if you do adopt a good oral care regimen.
