About Carina Plaza Dentists
Exceeding Expectations One Patient at a Time
We are a dental practice devoted to restoring and enhancing the natural beauty of your smile using conservative, state-of-the-art procedures that will result in beautiful, long lasting smiles!
A standard of excellence in personalised dental care enables us to provide the quality dental services our patients deserve. We provide comprehensive treatment planning and use restorative and cosmetic dentistry to achieve your optimal dental health.
Education & Prevention
As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary.
Infection control in our office is also very important to us. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilisation and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
Training & Expertise
As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy. To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning. We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilise to provide state-of-the-art dental care.
A Positive Experience
Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience.
Our Proud History
At Carina Plaza Dental we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health.
Our practice has been caring for the Dental Health of the local Carina community and surrounds since 1978.
Although many things have changed over our 45 years of business, our dedication to providing our patients with the highest quality treatment will always stay the same!
Our team welcomes existing and new patients. We accept all major private health insurance funds via our convenient instantaneous electronic claiming system, known as HICAPS. We are also excited to look after patients who are eligible with the Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA) and Child Dental Benefits Scheme (CDBS). Give our friendly staff a call today to book in your next dental checkup!
