Smile in Style with Dr. Terry Rose
When I graduated my aunt was diagnosed with a neurological disease. She had tests done and she had high levels of mercury in her system, at that time it was fairly contentions whether this contributed to neurological diseases.
I did a lot of study at the time and since and that was probably really what got me interested in holistic dentistry.
As the years went on there were lots of other different cases that puzzled me and I obviously tried to present the best products in the business and inventions.
One of the major attractions is we have a high-tech office and we offer a lot of treatments, including laser treatments, CEREC, orthodontics, guided implants surgeries, safe amalgam removals.
So, patients come to see us for those high-tech angles, holistic angles and probably because we have a fairly relax treatment atmosphere.
We are supported by a bright team of dentists, hygienists, nurses, receptionists who have been with us for many years which is a fair amount of continuity for people.
Our goal is to work together with you to achieve your healthiest, most attractive smile while ensuring your comfort and satisfaction. Call on +61-3-8400-4104 | +61-3-8001-6021
