About Smile Artistry Brochure
Our Philosophy of comfort, function and beauty
At Smile Artistry our purpose is to provide total care dental services that give you ‘comfort, function and beauty.’ Our core
dental services include General and Preventive Dental, Dental Implant and Cosmetic Dental Care.
Having the confidence in the appearance of your smile can result in a healthier approach to the general care of your teeth. By
taking pride in our smiles we can keep our teeth for life. We challenge the dental profession through our systematic approach
in our detection and prevention of decay and gum disease and equally systematic approach to the creation and delivery of
our dental plans.
Whilst the dental profession at large is undecided about whether to treat decay agressively (early care) or cautiously (wait and
see), our Dental Team takes a more encompassing approach to not only treat decay at the appropriate time for the individual
but to assist our patients to adjust their diet, oral conditions and oral home care to halt the future pregression of disease. In
certain individuals with poor diets (high sugar and acid intakes) and poor oral hygiene, a ‘wait and see’ approach could result
in rapid decay that will result in more rapid tooth breakdown and require more advanced treatments such as Root Canal
Treatment or extractions.
Central to our dental care is our staff. Each staff member plays an integral team role in the delivery of our care. Our staff are
encouraged to provide the very best service to all of our patients.
Our team all have their own areas of experience and every day our team works together to ensure our patients receive the
highest level of care that is available anywhere in the world. Our Dentists are all trained in Australia, and have a commitment
to continuing education in Australia and abroad.
Our services are always provided in an informed manner, where our dental plans are personalised to suit the individual needs
and expectations of the patient. Dental care delivery should be performed at the highest level of quality, with the newest
proven techniques, in a caring environment.
Responsible Dental Care is aimed at reducing the risk factors of Dental Disease and improving the aesthetics of your smile.
It is a combination of science, skill, education, technology and artistry.
Smile Artistry is committed to the early adoption of Dental Practice Accreditation with the Australian Dental Association and
ongoing compliance with all local, state and federal laws and requirements.
Our Principal Practice is located in Toowong. We are associated with The Terraces Dental Laboratory which is located on-site
to provide a co-ordinated experience for our patients.

Smile Artistry’s Charter of Patient Rights
Smile Artistry aims to provide you with appointments to meet your treatment needs. It is requested that you make an agreed
appointment time/date to assist the scheduling process, notifying the practice where this appointment cannot be met as early
as possible. To assist you in providing us with this information we contact patients via sms, email, telephone call, and/or post.
The cancellation policy of Smile Artistry requires three days notice for cancellation of an appointment. Should you cancel
without the required notice period, it is at the Front Office Manager’s discretion as to whether a cancellation fee is to be
charged, and if so, what this amount may be.
In the event we are unable to accommodate your request for an emergency appointment at a specific time/date, consultation
with your treating Dental Practitioner will be sought.
Smile Artistry aims to provide appropriate dental services in a safe, secure and supportive environment.
All patients are required to complete a full medical history as accurately and completely as possible, to allow staff to identify
any circumstances that may increase the risks associated with dental care.
Smile Artistry values you as a unique person and hope that at all times we can provide dental treatment in a manner that is
respectful of your culture, beliefs, values and personal characteristics. Patients are asked to reciprocate this respect by being
mindful of all of our staff at Smile Artistry and our other patients.
