Welcome to the Melbourne Smile Clinic

Our priority is to put our patients' needs first and making sure you have a comfortable experience in a professional and caring environment.

Your First Visit

On your first visit, we aim to obtain a thorough overview of your general oral health. That includes the teeth, gums and soft tissues in the mouth. We will carefully examine for the presence of decay and gum disease and other oral pathology such as oral cancers. 

Photographs are taken to allow visualisation of any dental issues and better understanding of the treatment needed. They are also necessary for treatment planning and smile design in cosmetic dentistry.

Radiographs (X-rays) are recommended on your first visit to ensure a complete and thorough diagnosis of your oral condition is obtained.

Our focus is on achieving optimal health, function and aesthetics with a thorough and gentle approach.

  • We have a strong belief in prevention. We want our patients to be in control of their oral health. A healthy mouth and teeth can be maintained for life if the right approach is maintained. 
  • We aim to provide the most appropriate care to each patient using current dental technology and science while maintaining a high standard of practice and making sure each patient’s needs is taken into consideration.
  • We bring a considered and individualised approach to our cosmetic dentistry work. Health is prioritised and we aim to restore the dentition to a natural look. 
  • Dentistry need not be a traumatic experience for anyone and we aim to make our patients feel comfortable and looked after throughout their treatment.

It is extremely important for us to keep abreast of new advances in dental technology, science and standards. This is ensured by regular attendance of educational seminars and lectures by Dr Yew and the team.

WE HAVE BEEN AWARDED FULL ACCREDITATION AGAINST THE NSQHS STANDARDS FOR StandardsINTRODUCTORY DENTAL PRACTICE ACCREDITATION.

The accreditation process is assessed by the ADA (Australian Dental Association) and QIP (Quality in Practice) to ensure we meet the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards.

This ensures that:

  • Infection control standards are met. For example: the right processes are in place to ensure that instruments are being cleaned and sterilised according to the Australian and New Zealand Standards
  • Policies are in place to protect patient privacy and rights.
  • All staff is adequately trained in their roles and to respond to medical emergencies should they arise in the dental setting.

More information about dental practice accreditation can be obtained online here.

Repair, rebuild, refresh your smile.

Wear and tear, discolorations, gaps, old fillings or teeth that are naturally misshapen can lead to an overall less aesthetic-looking smile.

We have a range of different treatment modalities to address these concerns:

  • Invisalign clear aligners can be used to move teeth to a more optimal alignment. Bleaching to improve whiteness
  • Tooth-coloured resin composites can be used to build up teeth for minor shape alterations and recontouring
  • Ceramic veneers and crowns for improving the overall appearance of single or multiple teeth.
  • Implants to replace missing teeth

A combination of these various treatments can be used to achieve the desired result. Each case is thoroughly assessed to determine the best treatment combination for the patient. If gum disease or decay is diagnosed, preliminary treatment will be required to restore optimal oral health first. For complex cases, photographs and models of the patient’s teeth are taken for analysis. A virtual post-operative result is generated which allows the patient to visualise the projected outcome.

Our aim is to provide an aesthetic and natural result while also restoring and maintaining health.
