The starting point to the finest dental care is a comprehensive and thorough examination.
Using our 28 point checklist, a complete dental examination is conducted for you at every visit, making sure that you know the exact condition of your oral health. The foundational part of preventive care is that we can identify any possible problems in enough time to rectify them – before they become painful and costly problems.
A dental exam is more than just looking at teeth!
Here at Island Dental we examine all the hard and soft tissues of the head and neck, the temporomandibular joints (TMJs), and perform an oral cancer check routinely. We employ the most advanced technology, like Diagnodent, Intraoral cameras, and Digital X-Rays, to make your time in the chair as short and effective as possible.

This comprehensive examination establishes a baseline of where you are with your oral health. If there are any changes or gum disease progression we can monitor it to ensure major dental problems are avoided or minimised.

Together we know the exact condition of your oral health at each appointment. You will receive a lifelong dental health plan to meet both your immediate and future needs. At each decision point, we arm you with all the information so that you can choose the path that best suits your needs.

Helping you to keep your own teeth
Many dental problems are like heart disease: it is only when they have reached an advanced stage that you will notice it. Just because you don’t feel any pain it doesn’t mean that your teeth are healthy.
A comprehensive dental check-up and examination will accurately establish your level of oral health and allow you to resolve problems sooner rather than later, when it may just be too late!
An affordable approach to dentistry
Regular ongoing dental care works out to be more cost-effective in the long run than crisis management of dental problems.
