Teeth. For Life.

It’s how we feel about teeth

Did you know that most people only think about their teeth when they cause pain or embarrassment? But at Dental as Anything, that’s not how we feel about teeth.To us, teeth are for life.  And they are a signpost for your health.

Like any long term investment, teeth require care, work, and attention at every age and stage.


The 'Teeth. For life.' philosophy is behind everything we do,

It’s a question we get asked a lot, so we figured we’d better answer it.

Know a dentist who lives and breathes his patients’ teeth? Dr Mark is that guy.  And ‘Teeth. For life.’ is his brainchild.

There is now a growing body of research that links your overall health to the quality of your oral health.

At Dental as Anything, this understanding is integral to our approach to patient care.  We aspire to educate, inform, and raise awareness in all our patients because we know how closely oral and personal health are linked.

 

Here’s what Dr Mark knows for sure: we each have an interesting relationship with our teeth.

  • When we’re kids, we get told to look after our teeth
  • As teenagers, we try to avoid our teeth
  • In our twenties, we don’t give teeth a second thought
  • In our thirties, maybe, just maybe, the thought of our teeth might pop into our heads
  • By the time we hit the forties, we’re not feeling quite so indestructible and teeth start to feature in our health care
  • In our fifties, we sit up and start to pay attention to our teeth, because we realise they’re the only set we’ve got
  • In our sixties, we start replacing our teeth
  • In our seventies and beyond, we wish we’d spent more time looking after our teeth in our twenties.

What’s the best way for you to understand how we work?

Come visit us.

Your first visit with us is super important and here’s why. It’s kind of like getting to know where you’re at and what your dental gremlins are.

Depending on what’s happening for you we might:

  • Decide to act immediately to alleviate the pain and discomfort you’re feeling from a dental emergency like a broken tooth
  • Place you in the very capable hands of one of our hygienists for a good clean up. Look out, because these ladies know their stuff
  • Get you straight in front of Dr Mark for our unique Comprehensive Oral Health Assessment
We want our patients to understand that at every touchpoint, we are working with you to meet our number one objective for you. To create the foundation for a totally doable lifelong maintenance program for your teeth.

Confused about where to start?

The Comprehensive Oral Health Assessment (COHA) is a Dental as Anything signature service and we love seeing what it does for patients. Our COHA is available to EVERY new adult patient. If you’re not in pain or experiencing an emergency, this is usually where we start. In a COHA we take time to listen and understand your needs, concerns, and goals.  We also hear about your previous dental experiences and the impact they’ve had. This is how we build our relationship with you, before we start any work.

In the COHA, we complete a detailed examination of hard (teeth) and soft (gums) elements. We take photos, x­rays, checks for signs of oral cancer, assess your jaw joint and screen the gums for potential bad bacteria. Because we’re in this for life, we develop a personalised treatment plan that looks at what you need right now AND the big picture for down the track.

Most importantly, we explain it to you ­ in detail, in language you understand, face to face. But that’s not all we do.

What’s a hygiene visit?

It’s a question we get asked a lot, so we figured we’d better answer it.
While the Comprehensive Oral Health Assessment (COHA) is available to every new adult patient, for some people, it can be a dental bridge too far. Maybe they’re anxious. Maybe they don’t like dentists (we think it’s only because they haven’t met Dr Mark!). Or maybe they’re concerned about cost. We understand.  If you’re this person, we’ll recommend a hygiene visit. The good news is: it doesn’t sound scary because it isn’t.

A hygiene visit means we work with you, no matter where you’re at.  It also means we can live by our ‘Teeth. For Life.’ philosophy because we make prevention and maintenance your friend.

Our lovely hygienists will:

  • Understand from you what’s been going on healthwise to assess how this may be impacted by your oral health
  • Do a full check of your teeth and gums
  • Do a full clean
  • Make recommendations for ongoing care
