At the Mount Barker Dental Centre we are committed to offering you:
-high quality dental treatment at an affordable price,
-a wide range of services to meet all your general dental needs,
-a gentle and caring approach in a friendly yet professional environment,
-modern, spacious facilities.
Our focus, wherever possible, is on prevention of oral health issues, which ensures the best outcomes for our patients at the least cost. However we also offer a wide range of treatment options when oral health problems arise.
At Mount Barker Dental Centre, we are great listeners, making sure that we hear your concerns and understand your needs. We are gentle and reassuring, aiming to provide you with a relaxed and pain free experience. (However, we do understand that dental treatment can cause anxiety among some patients and, if needed, we are able to offer treatment options such as happy gas and conscious sedation.)
We understand the difficulties of competing commitments, both at work and at home. For this reason our consulting times include sessions after normal working (and school) hours, as well as Saturday mornings. Help with after-hours dental emergencies is just a phone call away (on our special after-hours service number 0412 166 874). We are one of very few dental clinics in the Adelaide Hills to offer an after-hours emergency service.
We offer all our junior patients (from ages 0 to 17 years) the opportunity to join our Happy Chomper Kids Club.We aim to create a fun environment for kids in the waiting room, with activities that will keep them amused, and in the surgery where they will be treated by one of our dental therapists, who are trained especially in caring for kids under 18 years (or if you prefer by one of our dentists, who are also very experienced in treating ...read more
I will come back to Dr Chris Thorne, he is an awesome dentist and he gave me back the ability to smile. He explains as he is doing something, very understanding and has the most brilliant chairside manner. Fully recommend him to anyone needing a dentist and the girls at the desk are fantastic too. My only other recommendation is if you are having regular treatment make a few appointments a head as there is about a month wait.
After my dentist had retired, I was looking for a dentist I could be comfortable with. This practice was recommended to me by someone who had tried many dentists around Mount Barker , yet was never happy until they went to see Mt Barker Dental Centre. They managed to fit me in due to pain and my first visit was fantastic. The presentation was very nice, clean and modern, I only waited less than 5 minutes to be seen and the staff were extremely friendly and courteous. The dentist who saw me, Chris, was very professional, explained everything as he went and was very efficient and knowledgeable. I had no pain or discomfort and everything I needed was taken care of very promptly. As I run my own business, I am very busy and time poor, so I was really appreciative to have had such suburb service, not to mention the value/fair price. I will not hesitate to recommend this practice to anyone.
