Why should you be seeing the dentist?
We know that the Dentist probably isn’t your most favourite person, and you’d probably rather delay or avoid visiting them. But the cost to your health and your wallet can be substantial if you ignore your teeth and avoid the Dentist. Prevention is always better than a cure.
To ensure your oral health and hygiene is always at its best, we recommend seeing your dentist regularly for:
Oral hygiene education
It’s important that everyone knows how to properly brush and floss their teeth.
Dentists can assist you in ensuring your brushing technique is reaching all areas, and may recommend other oral hygiene practices, such as regular mouthwash use in some circumstances.
To make an appointment, simply call us on 1300 492 492 and select option '2'. We operate a flexible appointment schedule and will accept urgent appointments; however, it may not be with your usual dentist. If you require a translator or interpreter, please let us know and we will arrange a convenient time to book one for you.
Before attending your appointment, make sure you have your applicable health care and/or concession cards (e.g. Medicare Card, Department of Veterans' Affairs Card etc.) with you. If you have Private Health Insurance and are eligible for claims, please bring your Private Health Insurance Card with you as well.
If you need to cancel an appointment, we ask that you try and give 24 hours notice. Cancellations within 24 hours of the appointment may incur a cancellation fee. To cancel an appointment, call us on 1300 492 492.
Upon arrival at our IWC Health and Wellbeing Centre in Bundaberg, make your way to our Dental Practice reception, which is located on Ground Floor of Building 1.
