Frequently Asked Questions

Why dental x-rays are necessary?

Your dentist evaluates whether an X-ray is necessary based on a range of factors, including your presented symptoms, age, and dental history. Individuals with strong oral health and infrequent tooth issues typically require fewer X-rays.

Dental x-rays, particularly the digital x-rays in use here at Moorooka Dental Care confer minimal radiation risk. Your dentist will only take x-rays when they feel that the benefits outweigh any risk. If you have had x-rays done at another dental practice it is good to obtain copies of them. If you chose to visit another dental practice and have had x-rays done here at Moorooka Dental Care we are always happy to forward them for you.

X-rays can help diagnose the following:

 

  • Decay
  • Infection
  • Impacted teeth
  • Bone loss due to gum disease
  • Cysts
  • Oral Cancer

Why do I need to fill in a medical history form?

As a new patient and annually for regular patients we will ask you to fill out a medical history form supplied by the Australian Dental Association. This form includes your contact details and some detailed questions about your general health.

It is important for the dentist to have a full picture of your overall health, particularly if you are taking medications, as some may have a significant impact on the dental treatment they provide. Of particular concern are Bisphosphonates, Warfarin and Anti-Depressant medications but you should include information about all prescription and non-prescription drugs. If you have an up-to-date medications list provided by your GP, it is helpful to bring it to your appointment.

Also, please note that we will ask for your height and weight. These questions relate to the prescription of medication and to the fact that our dental chairs have an upper weight limit stipulated by the manufacturers. If your weight is above 130kg, please contact us for further information.

How much will the treatments cost?

Assessing the cost of dental treatment accurately demands an in-person evaluation by the dentist. While we can readily provide prices for routine check-ups, consultations, and x-rays over the phone, determining the cost of treatment necessitates an examination by the dentist.

During your check-up or consultation, the dentist will craft a treatment plan if further procedures are needed. This plan will closely align with the anticipated course of action.

However, it’s important to acknowledge that adjustments may be required once treatment is underway. For instance, even though an x-ray can reveal the presence of decay, the full extent might only become evident as the dentist begins treating the tooth.

I had the most amazing experience. I was nervous about my dental treatment but when I got here they explained it to me and I was put at ease. The work done was amazing and I won't hesitate to return to this clinic. Dr Zaheer and his team were very professional and caring.

I also found his front desk staff Fatimatu and Frances to be very friendly and caring. I would highly recommend this clinic.

I had my best dental practice at Moorooka Dental Care! I was very afraid to go to the dentist before I came to this practice. I had a really good experience at this clinic.

Dr Linh was wonderful. She explained the whole treatment and answered all my questions. I also met Frances the receptionist. She was very friendly and made me feel welcome. I had an amazing experience and highly recommend Moorooka Dental Care.

The whole team are such a lovely bunch of people! Dr Tina and Casey (I think it's Casey.. correct me if I'm wrong) work so well together and had me laughing before and after my dental work. Everyone is really kind here, from owner to reception staff. I know I'm in good hands when I visit ๐Ÿ™‚

I had the pleasure of having my dental work done at Moorooka dental care. It has been an amazing experience, Fatimatu at reception was extremely helpful. I was treated by Dr Furqan today and I found him very professional and gentle. I've also seen Dr Reza and Dr Zaheer and found them to be extremely good. I will highly recommend this practice.

Fantastic staff. I am a truly anxious patient, and the receptionist, Frances, who took my first contact call, I felt safe. Dr Reza Sunny was so patient with me, allowing me to do tapping when I was overwhelmed, never losing focus, totally understanding. Incredibly kind. Incredibly good dentist. I had cleaning, filling, and removal of a broken molar. Even though I may still get anxious I feel safe returning when needed.

This is my first time ever to have a positive comment about a dentist.
I was astonished about the successful outcome of my dental procedure. Thank you Casey and Dr Reza, what a professional and dedicated team. I mentioned to my partner about it, and we went back to the clinic and she made an appointment for herself on the spot. I do not hesitate to recommend to any one the services of Moorooka Dental Care. Thank you all for your friendly attention, starting from the reception all way to the manager. Looking forwards to see you again.

Can't thank the team at Moorooka dental care enough for an amazing friendly experience! I have now seen both Dr Reza Sunny for general cosmetics work including fillings to teeth whitening, clean up/check ups. Very good at explaining and being upfront with procedures process and Dr Zaheer who removed both my bottom wisdoms last week did an absolute fantastic job from start to finish. They even went the extra mile to call up and check up on me a few days later to see how my recovery was going. 10/10 for service and pricing. Thanks

Moorooka Dental Care is one of the best dental practices I've been to. The team is friendly, the office is modern and clean. I have had the pleasure to be cared by Dr. Zaheer and Dr. Reza. Both are excellent professionals. They took the time to explain the procedures and the subsequent cares. I even got a follow up call from the practice manager, Ahmed, the next day. I highly recommend them!
