MHT Dentistry –  East Malvern Dentist

East Malvern Dentist – MHT Dentistry

A positive dental experience depends on comfort and trust. We endeavour to create a relaxed environment with clear and open communication to ensure we deliver the optimal dental experience for all our patients.

Our team are attentive, and we take the time to get to know you and discuss any concerns you may have. We carefully explain your treatment options in plain language and develop tailored dental plans to suit your needs. We use the latest technology and ongoing training to detect and prevent dental issues as early as possible.

Our general dental care includes everything from cleans and general consultations to emergency dentistry. We operate an onsite dental laboratory, so most dental technician work can be quickly done at the surgery, overseen by Dr Matt Teixeira. At MHT we use the highest quality products to ensure the best result for our patients.

When designing MHT Dentistry’s new premises we gave a great deal of consideration to the layout to ensure easy access for all our patients. The surgery has wheelchair ramps at the front, and doors have been widened so you can enter easily. There is also plenty of space for parents with prams.

We have also opted for equipment that allows us to perform a wide range of services from surgical procedures, to onsite X-rays, along with restorative and everyday dentistry and an onsite laboratory making us a one-stop shop.

Our team is made up of dedicated, experienced and skilled staff who focus on patient care whilst maintaining the highest possible hygiene standards. We take the time to consult and develop clear and cost-effective treatment plans.

MHT is a family-oriented practice, and we pride ourselves on our patient care, particularly with children and our older clients. We devise personalised, tailored solutions for each of our patients – ranging from young children sitting in the dentist’s chair for the first time, to aged care residents who are bedbound.

If you are experiencing any nerves or anxiety regarding your dental visit please notify us when making your booking. We are specially trained to handle this apprehension and will endeavour to make your visit as comfortable as possible.

MHT Dentistry is actively involved in supporting the local community. As major sponsor of the East Malvern Knights, MHT Dentistry offers all Knights players and families discounted Mouthguards and gap free scale and cleans. MHT is also involved with Harlequin Rugby club, local schools, offers pro bono work at childcare centres and Arcare Aged Care facility in Malvern East.
