Many of us do not look forward to visiting the dentist. We at Morton Dental Noosa are here to help change your view by providing you with high quality gentle dental care in an atmosphere that is friendly and relaxed. We even have video screens on the ceiling above our chairs to help make your visit more enjoyable.
We are ready to listen to your dental concerns and aspirations and to provide you with detailed explanations, options and solutions specific to your needs. We realise how important it is to cater to various budgets, and pride ourselves in providing affordable family dentistry. We are preferred providers for Medibank Private and BUPA Health Funds, and we accept all private health fund cards.
Prevention of dental disease is a much better option than expensive treatment, the main focus of our practice is preserving the long term health of your teeth and gums. This means regular check-ups so we offer a recall service every 6 months.
We use tooth coloured filling material for restorations. Crowns and bridges can be constructed using porcelain and gold. We can provide root canal treatment, tooth whitening, inlays and onlays, cosmetic treatment including composite and porcelain facings and denture work. Our hygienist is available for cleaning and scaling. Should specialist treatment be required, we can refer you to the best clinicians on the coast.
These factors, combined with our commitment to quality, mean that you receive the best possible dental care and have a pleasant experience with us.
