Preventive and General Dentistry

We welcome new patients of all ages and strive to help families enjoy healthy smiles for a lifetime. Our focus on prevention and caring for natural teeth with high-quality, tooth-coloured restorations is the cornerstone of our dental practice.

Hornsby dentists Dr Ben Dunster and Dr Clint Hazell also provide compassionate, individualised dentistry that supports patients in achieving optimum health and comfort in a genuinely caring environment.

Routine Check-Ups and Cleans

We encourage our patients to maintain their regular exams and professional dental cleanings to help Ben and Clint identify any oral diseases or conditions early when they are usually easier to treat.

An oral evaluation includes inspection of each tooth, oral tissues and jaw and bite function. Digital dental x-rays will assist with accurate and early diagnosis. Our dentists will share any conditions with you along with all potential treatment solutions so that you can make a choice that works best for you.

No two patients are alike, and providing the proper type of dental cleaning is essential to avoid periodontal disease and decay. Your needs may change throughout your lifetime, and our team will make recommendations based on your current oral health and medical conditions. From a routine scale and polish to a deep clean designed to heal gum tissue, our team will customise your cleanings to meet your needs. We have a gentle approach that our patients truly appreciate. 

Tooth-Coloured Restorations

If decay or trauma damages teeth, we offer durable and aesthetic tooth-coloured dentistry to repair natural teeth, adding to their comfort and longevity.

  • Fillings
  • Dental Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Veneers
  • Inlays
  • Onlays

The proper restoration often enables patients to retain natural teeth and also creates a seamless appearance that improves confidence.


Losing a natural tooth can impact chewing, speaking and how patients feel about their smiles. Replacing teeth restores function and improves self-confidence while supporting improved oral health.

Bridges – A fixed dental bridge fills the gap left by a missing tooth and keeps adjacent teeth from drifting, protecting the bite.

Dental implants – Dental implants may prevent bone loss, which is typical following extractions or tooth loss. They also provide the solution to missing teeth that is the most similar to a natural tooth – almost like having your own tooth again.

Dentures and partials – When patients have multiple missing teeth or are facing complete extractions, dentures and partials remain a popular choice to complete their smiles and increase their dietary options.

Implant-supported dentistry – When patients wish to experience the stability of dental implants combined with the affordability of dentures or bridges, Ben and Clint can provide dental implants to anchor bridges and dentures in place. Their experience with dental implant surgeries and restorations offers excellent results.
