About Us

Perio Bayside | Brighton - Periodontal & Implant TreatmentsOur periodontal practice was first established here in Carpenter Street, Brighton in 1986. It is the longest established periodontal practice in the southern Melbourne suburbs and has provided high quality specialist periodontal care for thousands of patients. The clinicians are all members of the Australian Dental Association and pride themselves in the ethics and expectations that come with such membership.

Our constant and underlying philosophy towards our patients is to provide the highest level of periodontal care and advice but also offer alternative ways forward in a manner that is cost conscious and consistent with your informed long term goals.

The rooms of our practice are in a restored Edwardian house and linked closely to medical and pathology services nearby. The practice has a car park for your convenience and adjoins the large Brighton Safeway car park. We are easily accessible by the Sandringham line metro-train, with the Middle Brighton railway station 200 metres away. At the adjacent street corner is the well-known Church St Brighton with all its shopping and cafes.

Why should you insist on a Specialist Periodontist?

Periodontists are dental professionals who have undertaken three years of additional training as a specialist focusing on the treatment of periodontal (gum) disease and other oral conditions that affect your soft and hard tissue of the mouth. They are also more highly trained than a general dentist in placement of dental implants, gum surgery and bone grafting.

You can only become a periodontist after acquiring a basic dental degree, gaining general experience in clinical practice and then undergoing an additional three years of full time intensive university and hospital based training. During this time the trainee periodontists are taught on all aspects of gum disease, treatment modalities and implant surgery at an advanced level. Only after rigorous written and clinical examinations are they award their specialist qualification. Periodontist once practicing as a specialist are not expected to do general dentistry and their names are recorded as specialist on the Dental Board of Australia register thus allowing the public to check their credentials.

Fees & Payment Terms

On the day of treatment, an invoice for the full cost of the procedure will be issued. Full payment for the procedure is appreciated (unless stated otherwise in a written fee quotation). Payment can be in the form of cash, personal cheques, EFTPOS cards and credit cards (VISA and MASTERCARD only).

How much will my treatment cost?

Your treatment needs are individual and thus will be assessed according to your needs and desires for a healthy periodontal outcome. A cost for treatment can only be provided after the initial consultation and assessment of extra diagnostic items such as x-rays. A detailed treatment plan with full costing will be provided at that time.
