Open tomorrow from 8:00AM to 4:30PM

Who we are

Dentistry on Merivale are your holistic dentists. We believe in a health and wellness approach to dental treatment, providing natural and safe treatment.

As a holistic dental practice we take all the health ramifications of dental treatment and restorative materials into account when determining the best dental care. We are metal-free and research all restorative materials to be sure that only the holistically ‘safest’ are used.

We are a small but highly experienced team with a simple goal – to provide health-centered state of the art dental care in a comfortable and friendly environment.

Properly restored teeth should be comfortable, look natural, and last many years without the need for ongoing repair. With the advent of bonded ceramics, implants and the latest composite filling materials, we can make profound changes to a broken down dentition, permanently replace missing teeth, and give you a smile to be proud of.

Did you know

  • We are metal-free and ensure to be sure that only the holistically ‘safest’ materials are used

  • Dr Walsh can be reached on his mobile for after-hours emergencies
  • We will always make room for you on the same day that you ring us if you are in pain
  • We work hard to be on time and seat you within 10 minutes of your appointed time
