We have made booking in for a dentist as seamless as possible across our 15 dental practices with our book online feature.
This means, you can book online for an appointment after hours, on the weekend or even on a public holiday – 24/7. Say goodbye to taking time to call your dentist from work, you can book in for an appointment online at any of our Coastal Dental Care practices.
What treatments can I book online for?
Online appointments are best suited for general dentistry treatments like check-up and cleans, dental emergencies and consultations. We have put together a list of treatments we offer when booking online.
- Check-up and clean – Child Over 13
- Check-up and clean – Child Under 13
- Check-up and clean – Existing Patient
- Check-up and clean – New Patient
- Emergency – Broken Tooth / Filling
- Emergency – Tooth Ache / Pain
For more complex treatments (crowns, bridges, dental implants etc.) it is best to call in for an appointment so that your dentist can allocate the appropriate amount of time for your case. However, more complex treatments will usually require a consultation visit before any dental work is carried out.
At Coastal Dental Care, we offer booking spots for emergency dentists, however, it can be beneficial to call in for an appointment so that you can be seen to right away. This is especially important if you are experiencing pain or discomfort.
Furthermore, in a dental emergency where a tooth has chipped or become dislodged – getting to the dentist as soon as possible can increase the chances of your tooth being saved.
