Team Approach Dentistry With Medical and Auxiliary Health Care Support

At Newington Dental Care, we do not just focus on your dental issues in order to treat them successfully. Instead, we take a broader approach by taking into account factors that affect your overall health and well-being. Where appropriate, we call on the services of other medical and auxiliary healthcare professionals (dental specialists, GPs, nurses and physiotherapists), and collaborate efforts to acheieve optimal overall health. This type of approach is used in particular for patients that have a tendency to clench and grind their teeth (a condition called Bruxism), patients that are diabetic or have a heart condition (gum disease can affect those with these conditons) and sleep apnoea.
