Our family
caring for yours

Dunedin Dental is a family-oriented practice committed to helping our patients overcome the anxiety associated with going to the dentist. Combined with the highest standard of dental care we want your visits to be both pleasant and gentle. We understand that compliance to dental health is often linked to one's experience and we want to ensure our patients are confidently boasting a happy and healthy smile  


Our Services

Whether your dental needs include a complete exam and cleaning, a full-mouth restoration, or anything in between, we promise to provide you with exceptional care every step of the way.

Cancellation Policy

Please note appointment times at Dunedin Dental are valuable. In order to be considerate to others who are waiting for an appointment and would greatly benefit from an availability, failure to attend a booked appointment will, at our discretion, incur a $69 fail to attend fee unless cancelled 24 hours or longer in advance.


Preventive Dentistry

We are strong on preventive dentistry and regular visits to the dentist go a long way towards achieving a healthy mouth.


Teeth Whitening

Our dentists offer professional teeth whitening services at our dental clinic in Dunedin. It is a quick and effective procedure for a radiant smile!


Restorative Dentistry

There are many reasons for broken, worn and damaged teeth. These problems are cosmetically undesirable and can adversely affect the function and health of your teeth and gums. Restorative dentistry restores aesthetics as well as bite function to improve chewing and overall oral health.    


Dental Hygiene

Even with good flossing and brushing habits, plaque and tartar deposits can still build up on your teeth and be the cause of more serious problems in the future. Having routine professional teeth cleaning is the most effective way to maintain healthy gums.


Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth extractions may be recommended when there's lack of sufficient space in your mouth to accommodate them and they become impacted, partially erupted or infected. Also, effective cleaning of these teeth proves very difficult because they are too far back in your mouth and this often leads to tooth decay.


Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry can stand for many things these days, but one thing is certain, a naturally stunning smile speaks volumes. Dr. Raquel Bastos explores all the options and combines her keen eye for details with advanced techniques and the latest materials to refine and perfect the appearance of your smile.
