ABOUT WHITEHORSE DENTAL
Whitehorse Dental is a modern dentist practice nestled in Melbourne’s eastern suburb of Blackburn. We love teeth, and understand that providing an exceptional dental service takes a whole dedicated team.
We’ve gone the extra mile to make your dental care experience comfortable and pleasant by designing our dental practice to be a welcoming and warm environment. We enlisted the help of leading dental interior designer Antony Poate Design to create a modern and inviting clinic. Our goal is to steer your perception of dental care away from the sterile, intimidating and painful experiences that you may have had in the past.
Whitehorse Dental’s highly personalised service and unique dental philosophy is focused on a whole mouth approach, not just looking at a single tooth. Our practice philosophy is to provide the most ideal treatment; treatment that lasts at least 10 years, provided regular preventative care is maintained. This is the type of treatment that we would want for our family and friends. Our highly experienced dentists take the time to do things well with meticulous detail. We believe in doing it right the first time.
All of our treatment products and equipment have been carefully selected to exceed the industry standard. We are also committed to using only Australian laboratories for our technical work so that quality control can be maintained at the highest standard.
