Diagnostic Examination

This is the first and most critical step towards maintaining healthy teeth or achieving the smile you desire.


It involves evaluating existing conditions to determine the required dental treatment.  It encompasses a comprehensive dental and health history, initial oral examination, complete x-ray survey that includes cavity-detecting bite-wing x-rays, a periodontal (gum) exam, and a comprehensive tooth by tooth evaluation.


Preventative Care

This will include prophylaxis (or teeth cleaning), space maintainers, screening of oral cancer and application of topical fluoride in a bid to avoid or minimize the risk of severe abnormalities and diseases.

We also run an Oral Hygiene program that aims to educate our clients on the most effective and modern methods of brushing, flossing and of avoiding dental diseases.


Conservative Treatment

This is the use of filling, root canal treatment and crowns. Our natural teeth are far superior to any tooth replacement available. Conservative treatment ensures that you retain your natural dentition for a lifetime.



Over seventy four percent (74%) of our population is said to suffer from gum disease. The symptoms vary from sensitivity, unpleasant breath, bleeding and swelling of gums, to eventual loosening and loss of teeth. We offer treatments ranging from scaling (cleaning) and root planning, intra-pocket medication and in severe cases periodontal surgery.


Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery

This mainly involves performing tooth extractions and minor oral surgeries. Using modern anesthetic techniques within a relaxing environment, we ensure that these procedures that are often perceived as traumatic are carried out free of pain.



The replacement of missing teeth by constructing fixed bridges, removable partial or complete dentures and implant restorations.



This involves the use of wires and springs to move misaligned teeth to a more acceptable position. They are also used to close gaps between teeth. Even though orthodontic treatment is more common in our younger clients, it can also be performed on adults to achieve well aligned teeth.


Non-Orthondontic Tooth Alignment

The use of a combination of veneers, crowns and bridges to attain ‘instant orthodontics’. This technique can be utilized to create the illusion of straight teeth without the time and effort associated with braces. It has proven to be extremely popular with our adult patients who may feel that wearing braces does not auger well with their professional lives. With only a few visits to our clinic, we can use this technique to change the position, size and shape of your teeth giving you an amazing new smile.



Children’s teeth present unique problems that require special attention. Given their, often short attention spans, they are best treated in a soothing and relaxing environment for maximum co-operation.  Our superbly trained and dedicated staff is gentle and efficient to ensure your child receives the required dental treatment to maintain optimum dental health.


Emphasis on Sterilization

The second highest deterrent to visiting the dentist is the fear of cross-infection from dental instruments. At Tabasamu Dental, the safety of our clients comes first. Our instruments undergo double sterilization so as to guarantee all micro-organisms are eliminated. They are first chemically sterilized. They are then packed and sealed to avoid recontamination. Finally, we take them through an autoclave sterilization cycle. The individual sealed packs ensure that the sterility is maintained during storage.  You can be rest assured that your safety and that of your loved ones is guaranteed.
