Dental decay

Dr Paul Stephens has been fighting the ‘war on decay’ for a long time. He has many patients who had a very high decay rate in the past, with multiple fillings that were decaying again. As a preventive practice, here at, we try and prevent all decay, with protective ‘fissure seals’, topical fluoride application, and proper home care. We want the Central Coast to be decay free, starting with our Wyoming surgery.

How often should I visit the dentist?

Ideally, you should visit your dentist six monthly for an examination, hygiene appointment, and have x-rays taken every two years.

When should my children first visit the dentist?

First visit by their first birthday. They have a ride in the chair on mums lap, and take home a goodie bag!
