Sometimes, dental surgery is necessary! The dentists, together with their experienced staff strive to make your oral surgery experience as comfortable as possible.

Both Dr Terence Yuen and Dr Andrew Kow have many years of experience with oral surgery, and often take referrals from other dentists.

We understand that some people find dental surgery distressing and therefore we have options such as inhalation sedation or general anaesthesia. Please contact the practice if you would like more information on these options.
