Gentle Caring Female Dentist, Fairfield
Care For Smiles. A small, modern, independent family dental clinic, located in the Melbourne suburb of Fairfield, where dentistry is practiced by friendly female dentists in a caring, gentle atmosphere. We provide comprehensive and affordable family and cosmetic dental care to the Fairfield, Thornbury, Alphington, Northcote and near communities.
Dr Priti Rosemary Phillipos, a local resident, and the Care For Smiles Team take pride in offering the best family and cosmetic dental care in a relaxed, friendly, non-clinical environment. We are a small, independent, owner-operated dental practice without the corporate overheads of larger practices. Instead, we take the time to get to know our patients and to understand their individual needs and dental care requirements. We show how to improve and maintain excellent oral health, prevent dental decay and gum problems, and to have a smile that looks and feels great. To fit busy schedules, we offer evening appointments on Tuesdays and Thursdays and are also open on Saturday mornings.
Call (03) 9482 1100 for an appointment or Book On-Line. New dental patients and families of all ages are welcome.
Emergency dental patients can usually be accommodated on the same or following day but please call to confirm the availability of a dentist.
