| A Comfortable Environment
Angela is very conscious of the needs of both the patient
and dentist and has therefore chosen the Dental Surgery's
fit out and equipment accordingly.
The first consideration is the environment that must be inviting,
welcoming and calming for the patients so everything from
the reception/waiting area to the surgeries were designed
with this in mind.
The next considerations are the surgeries where patients
are treated. A calm and soothing environment is necessary
for both the Dentist and Patient!
Going to the dentist can be one of the worse memories and
experiences for many people and because of this, we aim to
have your experience to be light and enjoyable and the very
best that it can be.
From the time you enter, you will notice that the surgery
is not "flashy" and clinical like the trend in many
City practices but rather has a modest "Broome"
look and feel. We have taken care to choose decor and materials
that reflect the Broome lifestyle and where possible, we have
used recycled materials from early Broome buildings.
Dental Chairs - the center of the Surgery
you enter the main surgery, you will notice the beautiful
Kavo Dental chair.
Some people may find this a little confronting but most think
it is fascinating. You can be assured that once you are seated,
it feels very comfortable and even great for a snooze!
This chair is designed to assist the Dentist in delivering
the highest quality care while also providing the patient
with superior comfort. This chair exceeds many International
quality and hygiene standards and excels in its self-cleaning
routine after every patient.
Kavo Dental chair has a high quality digital intra-oral camera
and handy screen so you can see images directly from the camera.
The camera is a great asset for education.
The smaller 2nd surgery has been designed as a sparse and
quiet room specifically with Emergency treatment and easy
Wheel Chair access in mind. This room is a great option if
you feel that you may need a little quiet time before or after
seeing Angela. We have chosen a quality Planmeca Compact Chair.
Remember that we are here for you and if you have any questions
regarding treatment or how we may be able to help you, please
sight of the needle for many can be a moment of bad memories
and recollection of a past bad experience.
To help people overcome their fears and provide a positive
experience, we have purchased the STA
Wand that replaces both the sight and feeling of traditional
syringes/needles with something not much more than a pen and
a modern looking "box" that could be easily mistaken
for a modem, hard drive or even a small desk top computer.
This new system is called the "Magic Wand" by many
patients all over the world because of the complete absence
of pain and generally no longer having the experience of having
a large area of jaw/gums/tongue numb. With the STA Wand, the
tooth/teeth requiring anesthetic is targeted and this completely
changes the Dental experience. Read more about the magical
Cleanliness / Hygiene / Sterilisation
insists that the highest standards in hygiene are met at all
times within the surgery. This starts with cleaning instruments
and equipment after every patient and ensuring that all instruments
are sterilised and tracked by the Class B autoclave, packaged
and returned sterilised to the surgery ready for use.
The Kavo E50 chair has a self-cleaning cycle after every
patient, all benches, chair and equipment surfaces are cleaned
after every patient, and at the end of the day, the surgery
is thoroughly cleaned ready for the next day.
After using the new camera for the very first time, Angela
wondered how she managed without one. Not only does the camera
allow Angela to show you any issues, the camera allows Angela
to diagnose and identify issues faster and more effectively.
For example, fine cracks that are all but invisible, are now
easily spotted and treatments modified.
have chosen X-rays that emit very low levels of radiation,
about 10% of a typical medical or older Dental X-Ray units
and less radiation experience on a flight from Broome to Perth.
The wall mounted surgery X-rays provide high quality bitewings.
These are the x-rays that we are all use to seeing the dentist
take. The Planmeca X-Ray units installed in both surgeries
at Pearly Whites Dental are state-of-the-art high resolution
digitial x-ray units that emit less than 10% of convential
x-rays and expose you to less radiation than taking a flight
from Broome to Perth!
also have a 100% digital OPG X-ray in the surgery, typically
only found in Hospitals and larger City surgeries. These low
radiation, state-of-the-art Panoramic X-rays take a snap shot
of teeth, jaws and lower skull and provide the dentist with
an unparalleled diagnostic tool including a 180 degree view
that will show past work and possibly hidden issues.
is an OPG X-ray machine located in Broome at the Public Hospital
but if you are busy and your time is precious, then you can
quickly have a digital OPG X-ray taken at Pearly Whites Dental.
Once taken and processed, the OPG X-ray is immediately available
in the surgery and does not require you to attend the hospital
and return for a later appointment with your X-ray image.
