Another area that we have to tick off when we move is find a new dentist ( have to be honest I can’t bear the dentist )
so us JOY girls will give the low down on the ones we know
So 1st up is I’ll give you my Sarah tip Dental Wellness in the Gap , now these guys are awesome and Dr Tom Wauchope and Dr David Cowhig are both great ! Dr Tom is also fantastic with kiddies so if you have little ones who are a bit freaked out by the dentist he will work his magic and calm them right down, they also take a holistic approach to dentistry and the results are awesome so they get a massive thumbs up from us .
Jo’s tip is – Dental Flossophy. They are situated at 121 Lynne Grove Av Corinda. Their new practice is amazing. There is a fabulous waiting area with an old world charm for you while you sit and wait and they will make you a cuppa. There is another separate room where the kids can watch TV or play with some toys or even draw and you can still see them while you have your cuppa and read a magazine (awesome I know). The staff are amazing and have kept an eye on the kids for me while I have my checkup.
We ( thats me Jo and my family ) see Dr John Stolz and have done for years but they also have several other dentists available that are all fantastic. They offer several services, from check-ups, fillings, invisible braces, teeth whitening, mouth guard protection, root canals and crowns and of course emergencies.
Now dental Flossophy are also affiliated with several major health funds that will help reduce your cost, these are Medibank private, BUPA and HCF. They also see Veterans affairs patients and kids with teen dental vouchers. They have HICAPS available which means you can claim it through your health fund straight away and just pay the gap. Dental Flossopy are opened 8.30 – 5.30pm Monday to Friday and 8.30 – 1pm on.
Chrissy here 🙂 I have always been terrified of the dentist and have been very selective as to whom I see, so for me it is St Lucia Dental Clinic, Dr Angus Quinn. Angus is awesome, so gentle and kind, very talented and also very qualified. This practice has all the latest technology and is a joy to go to. I am always welcomed with a big hug from the lovely Madonna and the staff are happy to watch the children if that is required. It certainly has made something that is for me a challenge a whole lot easier to bear.
You may well also be looking for an orthodontist , so back to me , I’ve used Exact orthontics in Indooroopilly. Dr Lalieu was the main guy that we saw and he worked out the treatment plan for our older daughter , and then over the following 18mnths we met most of the other staff and all of them were great . If we ever had any issues or wires snap they would see us straight away to sort things out which was brilliant. Orthodontic work is not cheap where ever you are in the world and thats the same here , so check your private health cover carefully to see what they will help with .
We have also seen a guy called Dr John Flutter who works with our 9yr old and uses the myobrace which we are hoping means he won’t need a brace . They are located in Fortitude valley and have been excellent
There are many other great dentists and orthodontists around this great city , these are just who we can personally recommend from the great experiences we’ve had with them .
Keep brushing those teeth 😉
