High Quality, Family Dentistry in Toowoomba
The first thing our patients notice when they visit Apollonia House Dental is the elegant Queenslander building that Dr Rob Sivertsen and the practice team have called “home” for over 15 years. We are lucky to be able to work in such a lovely, inspiring environment, and patients seem to appreciate the comfortable sitting-room that acts as our waiting area, and sets the tone for our traditional general dental practice.
Often asked about the meaning behind our practice’s name, Rob is happy to explain that it comes from St Apollonia the patron saint of dentistry, and that he inherited the name when he took over the practice. Continuity also plays an important part in our philosophy on health care. We aim to maintain a balance between modern dentistry and the kind of old-fashioned service where you have time to share a conversation at reception, and know the dentist you will be seeing for your appointment is the same one you saw at your last visit.
When you see the same dentist for each visit, over time they will gain a deep understanding of your oral health. It is then possible to offer a truly personal service that takes into account your current priorities.
A Non-judgemental Approach
Rob and his team welcome all new patients whether you are new to the area or haven’t made a visit to the dentist for a number of years.We have a completely non-judgemental approach at Apollonia House Dental. It’s never too late to turn over a new leaf and start to pay more attention to your oral health needs.
As we understand that each patient will have had a different experience with dental treatment we take the time to get to know you. For some patients more information before their treatment is enough to alleviate any concerns, while for young children or more apprehensive patients Happy Gas (Nitrous Oxide) may help to make them more comfortable.
Care for Every Age and Stage
As an independent practitioner, Dr Sivertsen will provide advice on treatments and recommendations based solely on the best clinical option for each case. Patients are often happy to learn that the most expensive option is not necessarily always the best treatment for their situation.
Rob is comfortable discussing the advantages and disadvantages of each of your treatment options as well as offering advice on health funds and payment plans, should patients wish for more information.
