We use state of the art equipment, from the patient chair to the fibre-optic dental handpieces.
Northcote Family Dental has invested in the most up-to-date technology available to ensure absolute top quality dental care for our patients. We have an in-house a sophisticated x-ray machine that allows for a complete panoramic x-ray of your teeth, upper and lowers jawbones and joints.
Our digital x-ray machine emits only 10% of the radiation of conventional x-rays. Digital x-rays can be viewed almost instantaneously on an overhead monitor, as there is no film processing required, providing you with a more efficient service.
For your safety, we believe in following ‘best practice’ for cleaning and sterilising procedures as laid down by the authorities in the field.
We follow the Victoria Health Infection Control guidelines making sure that everything is sterilized or disposable. Once sterilized in our fully automatic hospital grade autoclave, instruments are kept sealed in sterile pouches until they are used.
Please ask us for a tour of our sterilisation area where you can see the process.
