Dental visits are something that most people don’t really look forward to, and many Australians don’t have as many visits as they should.
This is unfortunate, because dental visits, dental treatment, and good oral hygiene are among the simplest things you can do to support your overall health.
At Ria Family Dental in Yeronga, we know that most people consider their dental visits as an inconvenience.
And we also know that some people are anxious, even phobic when they think about visiting the dentist.
But we also know how good for your dental treatment is (We’re dentists, after all!).
Because of the tension between the health benefits and how many patients view visits, Ria Family Dental has given a great deal of thought to how we can make visits to us as comfortable, convenient, and economical as possible.
Before you get in the chair
One great thing about Ria Family Dental is our convenient location, on Fairfield Road. We have free off-street parking, and we are close to public transport.
Another useful thing is our website, which can help you become familiar with Ria Family Dental and our services before you ever see us.
For instance, by looking at our gallery, you can get a feel for our clean, comfortable, and attractive facilities.
Our website also contains explanations of our dental treatments (listed, in brief, below).
For bargain-hunters, the site also lists our temporary promotions. This is a good page to keep an eye on!
When you do get to our office, you will be greeted by our helpful staff, and instructed to do any paperwork that may need to be filled out.
For the convenience of our working patients, we offer evening hours on all weeknights except Wednesday.
