At Dental South, we believe that there is more to the smile than just teeth. Your trip to the dentist shouldn’t end with beautiful teeth, so our principal dentist, Dr Jess Manuela is now highly trained under the Australasian Academy of Dentofacial Aesthetics and is able to offer more services such as wrinkle relaxers, dermal fillers and other facial rejuvenation procedures.  We care about how you look and feel and understand that the face is the frame for your smile.

Dento-facial consult
It is essential that prior to any injectable treatment that a thorough dento-facial assessment be done to consider many factors such as:

  • Wrinkles
  • Loss of volume in the face
  • Facial measurements with phi calipers
  • Skin assessment and skin care routine
  • Lifestyle factors
  • Anti-oxidant measurement with a biophotonic scanner
  • Information gathering, comprehensive discussion
    of options and quote

For the best treatment, and for the best predictable outcome, a consult is imperative. From there, a tailored treatment plan can be formulated to best suit your needs. Injectable treatment may not be the best course of treatment and your dentist will advise you of this and refer your accordingly.
