Frequently Asked Questions

What constitutes a Dental Emergency?

In the event that you need to deal with a dental emergency, do you know what to do to increase the chance of saving your teeth? This guide from the ADA will help assist you in managing emergency dental care, just incase you ever need to use it.  Remember we are here to assist you if this should occur.

What is holistic health dentistry?

We describe holistic dentistry as looking at our patients in their entirety, and not just a mouth (or teeth). Health means harmony between our body & mind. Our mouth is a mirror of our body & mind. When we examine someone’s mouth, if we see signs of other health issues, we will inform you of what we suspect & advise you to get it checked with your GP. It could be as simple as enlarged tonsils, sleep apnoea, undiagnosed diabetes or Vitamin deficiencies or even anxiety and other mental health issues.

These days there is a strong evidence in science about importance of gut health in our overall wellbeing. Our gut starts from our mouth, so keeping a healthy mouth is very important to our general health.

Dentists make me feel anxious, how do you assist me to overcome that?

Our Principle Dentist Dr Uma is well known for her gentle manner that puts her patients at ease and is used to dealing with highly anxious patients. We have longer appointment times so that our patients do not feel rushed and it allows us sufficient time to explain all options and perform treatment.

This is to ensure that you can ask any questions that you have and be assured of patient confidentiality. We also have the option for you to choose what relaxing music you would like to listen to and have a roof mounted TV that has Netflix enabled.

If you’re a veteran, and a holder of a Gold Card or White Card with the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA), you are eligible to receive treatment from any dentist registered to provide services through the Medicare Benefits Scheme. At Withcott Dental, we are registered to provide services through DVA programs.

Gold Card holders will usually have all their dental treatments funded, provided the dentist establishes a clinical need for the treatment, while white card holders receive services in line with their recognised conditions. Depending on the types of treatment you need, the dentist will either be able to perform the work immediately and without approval from the DVA, or will need to seek approval from the department before proceeding.

So for instance, procedures like dental examinations, X-rays and temporary crowns can be done without delay, while some surgical work, dental implants and artificial tooth replacements known as dental prostheses will have to wait till the DVA provides approval.

The good news is that many general dental treatments don’t require approval.
