At Frederick Street dental Care, you have convenient access to a vast variety of private dental services in the fields of general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, emergency dentistry, specialist dentistry and orthodontics.
Dental Hygiene
We recommend that most patients see the dental hygienist on a 6 monthly basis in order to keep their teeth and gums healthy. We believe that prevention is better than the cure. By attending regular check-ups and hygiene appointments patients can reduce the need for dental treatment.
Cosmetic Dentistry
For patients who have not had a recent check-up, we recommend this before any cosmetic dentistry is carried out. This is to ensure that teeth and gums are healthy.
Specialist Dentistry
The practice philosophy is of a team approach to dentistry meaning that you have easy access to a team consisting of general dentists, dental specialists (Orthodontist, Oral Surgeon, Implantologist), and dental hygienist all working together in one practice to provide you with all aspects of dentistry to a high standard.
