General Dentistry at Richmond Dental Centre

We are happy to discuss your dental needs and are committed to providing the best and most appropriate dental care for you. Your dental health and oral hygiene is our primary concern.

Routine care

When you make an appointment for a check up at Richmond Dental Centre, we give you a full clinical examination, looking at your teeth, gums and jaw to check for any health issues. We take x-rays and photos as required. We then make our recommendations for any treatment required, and we’re happy to explain these to you and work out an appropriate treatment programme.

We can provide educational material on maintaining the health of your teeth and gums, and will recommend preventative treatments where we see them as being beneficial to you.

In all our dental treatments, we use high quality materials and up-to-date-techniques to give you the best possible result within your budget.

We are happy to talk to you about replacing your amalgam fillings with more natural looking composite fillings, or with any of the other alternative materials available.

We offer a full hygienist service to help you maintain your oral health at its best.

Emergency Dental Services

We are able to provide emergency treatments for the relief of discomfort in cases of trauma or dental pain.

For emergencies outside normal hours, if your own dentist is not able to be contacted, an on call dentist is available for urgent advice by calling 027 448 2424.
