Care For Smiles' philosophy is Caring patiently and gently, always.

Every member of our team share and live our values.

We understand that your smile is a reflection of your overall wellbeing, and we will work with you to achieve and maintain a healthy smile for life.

We provide a caring, patient and gentle environment.

We work on-time but we don't rush.

We respect each other, our patients, our community and our environment.

We care for our patients.

We don't reduce our costs by reducing the time spent with clients, or use cheaper/inferior materials, or compromise our infection control protocols.

We care for our community.

We actively support local businesses and community groups.

We only use local dental labs for all our mouth guards & splints, dentures, and crown and bridge work. We do not outsource to overseas dental laboratories.

We have held fund raisers for Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders), the Cancer Council (Biggest Morning Tea) and recently, a Fund Raising evening for the White Ribbon Australia campaign to stop violence against women.

We care for our environment.

To minimise our environmental impact we recycle cardboard and plastics and dispose of wastes using acceptable and approved practices.

To reduce the need for use and disposal of chemicals we have chosen to use digital x-ray imaging. Digital x-ray imaging also reduces x-ray exposure to clients and staff.

To minimise paper usage, our patient records, including x-rays and images, are stored electronically and, where practical, we communicate electronically with suppliers and patients.

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.
