Ultimately, we want to change the perception of dentistry, ensuring your visit is anxiety-free and that you feel in control. We want you to be highly pleased with the results.

What type of dental services do you offer?
As well as offering family dentistry services in Winston Hills, Baulkham Hills and Bella Vista, including fluoride treatment and check-ups, our cosmetic dentistry services include placement of fillings and removal of old ‘silver’ fillings, porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns and crown replacements.
Restorative dentistry services in Baulkham Hills include bridges, crowns, implants and dentures. We see a lot of patients who want to replace these with modern, metal-free, advanced bonded options which are minimally invasive of the tooth structure.
We also offer dental extractions, although our philosophy is preventive care, which reduces the need for extractions in most patients. We provide minor oral surgery procedures such as wisdom tooth removal, or bone grafting immediately after extractions.
Of course, we treat toothaches and broken teeth that require an emergency dental appointment, offered on the same day. We also offer TMJ diagnosis and treatment for sleep apnea, and other issues stemming from oral ill-health are also treated at our Winston Hills, NSW dental clinic.
Do you treat children?
At our Hills District dental studio, we strive to create a family-friendly place for everyone you care about to get the dentistry needed to stay healthy. This is especially important for kids.
Dr Lavery has children of her own and is particularly skilled in putting kids at ease and helping them develop a healthy attitude about oral care and their smiles.
We begin welcoming children from their very first visit to make their experience in our dental clinic a positive one. A good paediatric foundation with preventive dentistry treatments such as check-ups and cleans, hygiene instruction, and fillings (if they become necessary) will help your child have healthier teeth and gums throughout their lifetime.
We also provide cavity protection with fluoride application and fissure sealants to make it easier to avoid decay – a common preventable childhood disease.
You are welcome to bring your little one to our Winston Hills, NSW studio for your appointment or to call us to arrange a booking designed specifically to help your child become familiar with the dental clinic atmosphere and our team.
We love watching families grow and value the role we play as part of your healthcare team.
What if I feel anxious about coming to the dentist?
Don’t let your anxiety compromise your dental health.
Anxiety in dentistry is widespread. Whether you’re fearful of pain, have had a bad experience in the past with dentists, have complex dental problems or extremely sensitive teeth, we can help. Dr Martina prides herself on giving pain-free injections, using a topical anaesthetic on the gums before any injections.
We offer pain relief and sedation to make procedures comfortable for even the most anxious of patients. Sedation is standard practice in Winston Hills, Baulkham Hills and Bella Vista for patients undergoing extensive care such as multiple root canal treatments or oral surgery. Ultimately, we want to encourage you to pursue optimum oral and dental health, which means regular visits to the dentist to avoid these situations occurring in the first place.
For anxious dental patients, we have several sedation options at our Bella Vista dental surgery that are non-invasive, safe, affordable, and effective, enabling you to relax as we complete your dental treatment. For patients who are fearful of needles, we offer several oral sedation treatments. In some cases, sedation treatments also induce sleep or cause short-term amnesia, so you won’t remember much of your treatment.
In all cases of sedation, we strictly adhere to best practice. Sedation is always administered by a registered visiting anaesthetist, who can continually adjust the sedation levels to suit your specific requirements. In the case of moderate to heavy sedation, we’ll advise you to bring a responsible adult along who can drive you home following your treatment.
I am ready to schedule my first booking. How do I get started?
