Being a good girl and going to the dentist every six months doesn’t guarantee that your fillings can’t crack and that they will stay in your teeth forever! Going to a dentist here down under is not exactly the same as in Belgium. First of all, you receive a text message with a link to complete a large online questionnaire. This questionnaire doesn’t only ask about the broken tooth, but also about your medical condition. “Do I suffer from anxiety or am I currently breastfeeding?” Not that I’m aware of!
At the dentist practice itself everybody is over-nice and very helpful. You get to wear awesome safety goggles and you even get to choose your favorite music to tune out the drilling noises. The whole time dentist Jordan and assistant Wendy from Dental Compass Care made sure that I was very comfortable. They even gave a year’s warranty on the filling, and called me the next day to make sure everything was fine. Isn’t that amazing?!
The only down side is that dental care costs two to three times the price it does in Belgium if you don’t have health insurance. Luckily we have a very good travel insurance that covers these costs!
Conclusion: Dentistry Down Under: A+, would fill again!
