The team at National Dental Care Merrimac welcome you to their practice.
Providing the residents of the Gold Coast with the highest standards of dental care and treatments, our trained and experienced dentists and hygienists are dedicated to making your visit with us as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
From the moment you arrive at reception through to completion of your treatment you will find we offer a gentle, caring service with an emphasis on achieving long-term results.
From general check-ups to more complex procedures we will personalise your treatment to meet your desired outcomes.
Our practice is centred around you and your treatment with a focus on encouraging the prevention of disease and decay.
We also offer a comprehensive continuing care maintenance program with our dental hygienists, helping you to maintain and manage your dental hygiene.
Servicing patients in these areas: Robina, Tallai, Reedy Creek, Clear Island Waters and Austinville.
New Patient Experience
Once you arrive at the practice you will be greeted by our friendly staff and asked to fill in our New Patient Form. It is important for us to collect this information not only for your health but also to gain an understanding of your previous dental experiences and treatment to ensure we can plan your treatment.
You will then meet with your dentist for 40-50 minutes to discuss in detail your needs and requirements. Together in the treatment room we will collect all relevant information, which will include a full examination and x-rays. All this will be collated and we will go through any treatment recommendations and the associated costs with you at a subsequent consultation appointment the following week.
We will also be introducing you to our hygienist. Our hygienists are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of gum disease and the prevention of tooth decay. You will be seeing our hygienist as part of your continuing care program. This ongoing maintenance is important to keep you looking good and feeling good and to maintain any work that we do for you. This will take about 40 minutes of your time.
