Pay nothing for kids’ dental check-ups at Bupa Dental

At Bupa Dental Townsville, we believe it’s really important to look after your oral health, as a healthy smile is linked to your overall health and wellbeing. So make sure you have regular check-ups with your dentist and practise good dental hygiene at home.

Our friendly team of dental professionals are highly skilled. During your first visit to Bupa Dental Townsville they will take the time to carry out a thorough dental assessment. This will help us understand your current dental health, and identify any needs you may have.

We will then take the time to discuss all your treatment options, answering any of your questions along the way, before drawing up an oral health plan that is personalised for you.

We also understand that for some, visiting the dentist can be an anxious time. Speak to your dentist if you have any concerns. If needed we can provide a range of options to help put you more at ease. Happy Gas is also available at our practice.

From general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry, right through to dental reconstruction and orthodontics, at Bupa Dental Townsville we deliver high quality and affordable dental care to suit all of your family’s dental needs.

The clinic offers a wide range of services for the whole family including children dentistry. Practice principal Dr Rob Saltmiras, his associate dentists Dr Geoffrey Compton and Dr Shontel Billic and Hygienist Sharon Everett pride themselves on professional service and quality dentistry.
