"New patients are always welcome."

We would love to hear from you be it for your annual checkup, emergencies or for more substantial treatment. We always try to have emergency appointments daily which are often filled in the mornings so please call as soon as you feel you need to see us to save disappointment.

It is important to inform us if you cannot attend an appointment as we often have numerous patients on our stand by list waiting to see our practitioners at short notice. Failure to do so can in some cases lead to a failed appointment fee.

What if your next orthodontic appointment could take place anywhere?

Now you can keep track of your treatment progress, anywhere, anytime...

Dr Stephen Pohan has incorporated Dental Monitoring technology into his practice to improve the patient experience, reduce the number of appointments and overall treatment duration.

  • FAQ

    What age groups do you treat? Am I too old to receive treatment?

    Age is not a barrier for treatment.

    What age should i bring my child to the dentist?

    Doing new things like going to the dentist for a child can be quite daunting. We recommend bring your child in at *** for an orientation, this will allow your child to feel comfortable when visiting the dentist.

    What is your procedure?

    We initially schedule a 15 min consultation. This is a general discussion and it’s free. If you want to take it further we make an appointment to gather some personal data. This includes taking a series of photographs, impressions of your teeth and some xrays.  We charge $200 for this which includes a detailed consultation specific to your situation.

    Do you have payment plans?

    Depending upon the treatment, this can be discussed with you.

    Are you a specialist Orthodontist?

    No. I have a strong interest in this field and have been providing orthodontic treatments since 1985. I have worked in 2 orthodontic practices in Melbourne over 7 years, attended numerous orthodontic continuing education courses and successfully treated hundreds of patients.

    Are there any alternatives to metal braces to straighten teeth?

    There are different options and these will depend upon the treatment needed to fix your problem. Everyone is different and a personalised program will be designed to suit your situation.

    I don’t like the gaps between my teeth. Can braces close these gaps?

    Yes, they can but that may not look good if your teeth are too small for your face. Veneers or edge bonding might be a better option. An analysis and mock up will show you.

    Do I need a referral?

    No. No referral is needed. Just call 6424 3400 to schedule an appointment.

    Do you use “The Wand”?

    At our practice we pride ourselves on delivering pain free dentistry. We have been using computer controlled Local Anaesthetic delivery system ( The Wand) for 9 years. This, in conjunction with numbing gel, is an extremely gentle method of giving local anaesthetic where patients do not feel a thing.

    Do you have x-ray facilities?

    Yes.

    We are lucky enough to have great facilities that can perform multiple types of x-rays. These can range from intra-oral xrays which are often used to diagnose things like tooth aches. We also have the facilities to take extra-oral x-rays which range from OPG, Lateral Cephs which are 2D images of both the upper and lower jaws to 3D images which can be of one tooth or the whole mouth.

    We are very conscious of delivering the lowest dose possible to get the best image possible.

    Why do I need to see a Dental Hygienist?
