Welcome from Dr. Helen

More about Dr. Helen Implant Dentist BDSc (Melb)

Dr Helen opened up her Prahran East practice in 2008 after working across regional Victoria and gaining broad experience in emergency, surgical and cosmetic dentistry. Her aim has always been to provide gentle care with the highest quality outcomes for patients. She graduated from the University of Melbourne with a Bachelor degree in Dental Science, and later studied implant surgery at the Brener Implant Institute and Steigmann Implant Institute. Her work with implants has restored the smiles of countless patients over the years, even the ones who have lost all faith in their teeth. The best thing about having a small practice? Dr Helen gets to see the patients from the first time they walk in the door to the final outcome, and provide care throughout their lives. The personal relationship she has with her patients means she puts care and consideration into the longevity of their dental treatment and not just the immediate results.

Dr Helen is the former chairperson of the National Dental Foundation Victoria and the official dentist for the Melbourne City Football Club.

In her spare time, Dr Helen dances ballroom and loves creating healthy recipes for her staff and friends. Her two rescue birds, Rocky and Roger, also enjoy her cooking! She’s an advocate for animal rights and promotes a whole-food, plant-based diet for health, ecological, and compassionate reasons.

All About Implants

Do you wish your teeth were new again?
Dental Implants may be used to replace single or multiple missing teeth. They can also assist with locking your dentures into place, or giving you a permanent replacement of all your teeth.

COMMON QUESTIONS

Will it hurt?

Implant and complete teeth replacement procedures are normally performed under general anaesthesia, so you won’t feel a thing. When you wake-up, it will all be done. If needed, pain medication will be prescribed to reduce any discomfort you may feel. Patients often mention that Dr. Helen is the most gentle dentist they have ever seen, so you have nothing to worry about, we will ensure you are well taken care of.

How long will it take?

Implants will require a number of initial appointments in order to prepare your new teeth, ready for the day of surgery. On the day of surgery, your teeth will be replaced with implants. Then within a few days, new bridges will be attached, so you won’t be without teeth for very long. Afterwards, there will be follow-up appointments, to make sure effective healing is taking place.

What can I expect at my first appointment?

Your consultation will commence with a discussion on what you’re looking for, any problems you’ve been having, any concerns you have about your health and well-being. Then, Dr Helen will conduct a comprehensive 21-point oral health examination, including a screening for oral cancer. Afterwards, she will discuss the findings with you, so you can both decide on the best treatment plan for you. You will have plenty of opportunity to ask questions and find out everything you need to know to make the best decision.
