The Panmure Dentists have provided dental services to the community since 1954. We have friendly and experienced Dentists who will provide honest and prompt service.

There is no need to be afraid of visiting the dentist and no good reason to put off making that appointment. The Panmure Dentists offer a quality of service that will exceed your expectations.

We provide the full spectrum of dental care from cleaning and polishing, fillings and extractions, including impacted wisdom teeth, to root canals, implants and full mouth rehabilitations. The Panmure Dentists will provide you with a functional solution and an improved cosmetic appearance.

The Panmure Dentists team comprises Dr Alice Bahjet, Dr Leenke Heunis, Dr Joel Bagadam, Dr Saud Ibrahim and Dr Mei Wang.

We believe that prevention is better than cure, and they promote good dental hygiene which is a fundamental component of preventive dentistry. Preventive care minimises your risk of developing tooth decay and gum disease, thereby helping you to keep your teeth healthy throughout your life. It is never too late or too early in life to begin good dental hygiene.

Your smile is an essential ingredient of your self-confidence. The team at The Panmure Dentists take great satisfaction in restoring people’s self -esteem by creating dream smiles using state of the art technology.

For patients who are nervous about visiting the dentist we have sedation available to choose from: oral sedation, nitrous oxide (happy gas) or intravenous sedation. Intravenous sedation is used for oral surgery, it produces a “twilight sleep” where the patient is still awake and can respond, but is very relaxed and feels no pain. Patients do not remember their time under sedation and there are no lingering after effects.
