It’s no secret that one of the first things people notice is your smile. It’s also well known that we only get one chance to make a positive first impression so whether you’re smiling or not will set the stage for how others view you. The impact that your smile provides to others can be a gateway to your inclination for confidence and success.

It’s been said that people with healthy gums and teeth tend to smile more, appear more intelligent, and have a higher self-confidence. In fact, a bright smile is something to admire and a valued trait by most cultures. Also, many people believe that a person with healthy teeth and gums typically has better overall health and wellness.

At Riverside Dental Care, we are committed to your oral health, and our goal is to give you a reason to smile. As Cambridge’s oldest dental practice, we are proud to provide the residents of Cambridge, Tirau, and the surrounding areas with top quality dental care. It’s a great honour to continue to serve our existing patients and their families, and we are thrilled to be considered the neighbourhood dental clinic in Tirau.

Increase your Enjoyment of Food at the Dentist in Tirau

While most people know that poor oral hygiene may lead to tooth decay, gum problems, and bad breath, many still never make it to the dentist regularly. This lack of care can cause health issues as well as make it difficult to enjoy the simple things in life such as drinking cold or hot liquids or eating their favourite foods. When someone’s teeth are decayed, or their bite is out of alignment, eating food can be an arduous task.

Dentists serve as the soldiers against common oral health issues. Routine dental care can help you avoid the health pitfalls that correspond with poor dental health. When you come to us for your routine dental examination, we will check for any possible tooth decay, and our reliable and gentle dental hygienists will evaluate your overall oral health. We will also examine your bite to determine any potential chronic health issues.

Being a natural wimp when it comes to Dentists I cannot speak highly enough of the team at Riverside Dental. Maia was... just lovely, as was her assistant Alice. I am more that happy to recommend them. Also, a pat on the back to Nicki in more

Jacqui was quite simply amazing with my 9 year old daughter today, who needed a filling. She explained the process in a... fantastic child friendly way. When she ‘put the tooth to sleep’ I expected my daughter to be in tears, but she didn’t even notice. I still don’t think she realises there was a needle and drill involved! Everyone left with big smiles, after a completely pain and trauma free experience. I would highly recommend Jacqui. Oh, and she does a similarly excellent job cleaning my teeth!read more
