Children's dental care
Giving your child the best chance in life with good dental care matters. Starting your child off with good dental care will help protect their teeth for decades to come. A baby’s 20 primary teeth are already present in the jaws at birth. Those baby teeth that begin coming through the gums around 6 months help set the stage for future smiles by keeping space in the jaw for adult teeth.
High quality dental care matters to us
When it comes to your teeth you don’t want just anybody working on them. Government statistics show that not all dental services provide the same level of quality; Last year Inspiro dental performed well above the state average for dental service benchmarks.
Inspiro has well outperformed the state benchmark and the Eastern metro region benchmark for all dental health clinical indicators (in other words stats show that FAR less of our customers have faulty dentures or ongoing issues etc See the figures here.
As a result of our affordable rates and highly ranked state benchmarking Inspiro has received a reputation for quality dental services at reasonable prices.

Infection Control is a key element in Dental Services.
