A measured approach:
At Measured Dental Care, our goal is ultimately to bring our clients to the point where only routine check-ups and cleaning appointments are necessary. From your first appointment, we want to gain a clear understanding of your dental history and lifestyle. Then, we work with you to create a strategic treatment plan to best suit your goals, life stage and budget.
A lot of the major dental work we perform on new clients is due to mismanaged problems over the long term. Short-sighted dental work can cause pain and unnecessary expense over time, and we want to prevent that.
Our measured approach to your dental care ensures that potential problems are identified early on, minimising the need for major dental work down the track. When clients present with existing issues, we always suggest a treatment plan that will restore dental structure and health for the long term. Quick band-aid fixes are not what we do, and we won't recommend them.

Michelle became a dental hygienist almost by accident. On finishing her business degree, she signed up for a Bachelor of Oral Health on a gut feeling and discovered that not only is she passionate about it - she's also really good at it! Coming on board with Measured Dental Care in a temporary position several years ago, Michelle made such an impression with our team and clients that we couldn't let her leave.
Like our other principle team members, Michelle takes a holistic approach to dental health, helping patients to understand how their dental condition can impact overall health and wellbeing.
