The Team at Q Dental Is Now Visiting Schools, Aged Care Facilities and Other Community Groups

The plan here at Q Dental is to start working more closely with the community to educate children (and their parents) on the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene from an early age. When the team at Q Dental visits child care centres or schools, they will deliver an interactive seminar on the importance of oral hygiene and visiting the dentist.

We will also be visiting aged care facilities. At Q Dental we aim to help out those in aged care facilities—our principle dentist Dr Amin and a dental hygienist can visit aged care facilities and provide a general check-up and clean.

How Q Dental Can Help You

Did you know that gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults?

Did you know that gum disease can be prevented with a good oral hygiene routine, diet and regular visits to the dentist? Gum disease has been linked to serious health issues such as:

  • Cancer
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Chronic kidney disease

This link is due to chronic inflammation and bacteria that travels through your bloodstream contributing to these other health issues.

Maintaining Optimal Oral Hygiene

The team at Q Dental in Bella Vista want to help the community maintain optimal oral hygiene. We aim to do that through education and offering our patients easier access to general check-ups and clean.

At the moment we are offering check-up and clean with x-rays for $149 down from $300.

Check-up: a general check-up every six months allows the team at Q Dental to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy—during a check-up we check for decay, cavities and gum disease.

Clean: a dental can clean your teeth in a way that no floss or toothpaste can. When you have a professional clean plaque and tartar are removed—which decreases your chance of cavities.

X-rays: an important part of a general check-up as they allow us to see decay and other oral health issues more clearly.

Regular visits to the dentist can be the difference between needing a filling and needing a root canal treatment. It can be the difference between needing to treat gingivitis and needing to treat gum disease.
