Bupa Dental Parramatta
Regular visits to your dentist, along with good oral hygiene, are important for keeping your mouth healthy for life. We recommend visiting your dentist every six months, which can prevent uncomfortable and often expensive oral health treatments, sparing you unnecessary stress.
We understand that it’s not always easy to find time for these regular visits, which is why we open early throughout the week. It’s also why we have lunchtime appointments available. To help make dental care even more accessible to the Parramatta community, our clinical staff (dentists, oral hygienists, and dental nurses) can speak a variety of languages (jump to detailed list).
Our experienced professionals and modern facilities help us deliver high-quality dental treatments that cater to a large range of needs. Some patients may only need basic, preventive care, such as check-ups and cleans, while others may require more extensive treatments like root canals or crowns. No matter what your circumstances might be, we carefully tailor your treatments based on your oral health needs and your preferences where possible, making sure to explain each step and your possible options in an easy-to-understand way.
We aim to make your dental visit as pleasant and seamless as possible, which is why we prioritise quality treatments and a fantastic customer experience. From our friendly, helpful staff to a handy location near Westfield Parramatta, you can depend on Bupa Dental to help take the worry out of maintaining a lifelong, healthy smile.
