When a Dentist meets a new person and that person finds out the Dentist is a Dentist, the person often covers their teeth and then they talk about Dentistry. Or rather they talk about what the person doesn’t like about a trip to the dentist.
After a while this got my goat and I decided it was time for something different. Going to the dentist shouldn’t be that hard.
So when I listened to peoples stories I started asking them what could be better. People wanted a more welcoming clinic, less smoke and mirrors, more flexible hours, dentists who they could relate to, and dentists who listened and worked with their situation.
So I did all that and the Tooth Company was born. And it is growing. Because it turns out patients do like being treated like people and valued clients. They do like a different attitude to dentistry!

We understand that situations can arise where you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment you have with us. We ask that you consider and value the time we have set aside for your appointment and give us more than 24 hours notice to cancel or reschedule an appointment. This allows for another patient to be seen and treated.
A missed appointment is defined as
a) an appointment that you do not show up for or
b) an appointment that you provide less than 24 hours notice to either cancel or reschedule this excludes COVID prescreening or
c) arrive more than 15 minutes late for your appointment time.
We endeavour to limit missed appointments by a series of reminder messages and we also attempt to fill any missed appointments with patients on our short notice lists.
A fee of $50 per 30 minutes of allocated chair time will be charged for Missed Appointments. If we are able to fill your allocated time slot with another patient/treatment we will waive this fee. Each and every missed appointment charge will be at the discretion of the Practice Manager.
Patients who have a history of multiple and regular missed appointments (3 or more) may be required to pre-pay for any appointments upon booking. This is also at the discretion of the Practice Manager.
