Our Fairfield Dental Clinic

A warm and relaxing atmosphere

KaVo Estetica E50 Dental Chair as used at Care For Smiles

The Care For Smiles Dental Clinic has modern equipment and technology including Digital X‑Rays, Intraoral Camera and Caries Fluorescence Detection.

For anxious patients we also offer oral and nitrous oxide (happy gas) sedation.

Our Clinic offers a warm and relaxing atmosphere with candles and music/DVDs, or, if you prefer, streamed news, sporting events and videos.

Minimising Environmental Impact

To minimise our environmental impact, we have chosen to use Phosphor Storage Plates (PSP) for x‑ray imaging to avoid the use and disposal of chemicals. Digital x-ray imaging also reduces x-ray exposure to clients and staff.

Our patient records, including x‑rays and images, are stored electronically to minimise paper usage. We also recycle cardboard and plastics and dispose of wastes using acceptable and approved practices.

smilepower

Our Fairfield building is energy efficient with solar hot water and LED lighting. We purchase our electricity from Momentum Energy's Smilepower, a 100% renewable energy option. Solar p-v cells will be installed soon.

We have also designed an "edible garden" with herbs, seasonal vegetables and fruit trees (apples, olives, and a variety of citrus and stone fruits) to be shared with our staff and patients.

Infection Control

Care For Smiles uses disposable or single use items according to best practice infection control protocols. Our clinic set up and procedures are based on ADA (Australian Dental Association) infection control protocols.

We would be pleased to answer any questions you may have regarding our infection control policies and procedures.
