Advanced Technology and Care

At Harwood Dental Care, we do everything we can to help clients feel great about visiting our dental practice and having treatment here. Using the most advanced technology plays an important role in this as it helps us to provide the very best dental care.

Dental technology is constantly evolving and we like to keep ahead of change. Investing in next-generation technology means that we can diagnose conditions and issues more accurately helping us to plan the most appropriate treatment for optimum results. It also enables us to visualise treatment and outcomes in new and more precise ways. From scanners and loupes to cameras and microscopes – we use technology to make decisions that are more informed and knowledgeable than ever before.

Just as importantly, some technology can also help to put people at ease (especially if they feel a little nervous about treatment). The Wand® (read more below) is a great example of this as it’s a less uncomfortable alternative to a traditional syringe for local anaesthetic. So many people feel nervous about injections making this technology a good way to reduce stress and anxiety.
