Complex Dental Management
At ProCare Family Dental we provide management of complex cases. A complex case is one where a lot of dental work needs to be completed. Or in some cases the medical condition of the person is challenging and therefore increases the complexity of dental management. The case type may also require more than one discipline of dentistry involved. Such cases are planned and managed with close organisation with fellow specialist colleagues. We will manage the whole treatment and organize the relevant specialist for you to see at the appropriate time. No need to worry about who to see and when. Every thing is planned out for you from the start of treatment.
We also provide the service of consulting with the relevant dental specialist about your case on your behalf. This will save you time and money as you are not seeing the specialist in person. We will do this when the dental work is deemed within the scope of our practice to fulfill, in your best interest. There will be times when several specialist input will be sought and the treatment plan designed after all advice has been considered. This multi-disciplinary meetings are crucial in obtaining the best outcome for your case.
Our Environmental Responsibility
At Procare Family Dental, we care about our environment. We choose to use energy saving technologies to minimise our carbon footprint. Caring for our waterways and marine life is also very important to us. Our suction unit has a filter to ensure that all amalgam deposits are filtered out of the waste water before it enters our sewage system. In doing so, we reduce the amount of mercury entering our oceans.
