General Dentistry

Caring for your teeth and gums is crucial not only to ensure they look great and last a long time, but it is also important for your general health and wellbeing.

At Plenty Smiles dental clinic in Bundoora, Dr Manuel Bautista and his experienced team of dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants and lab technicians are here to welcome you to our superior dental practice.

What is General Dentistry

Your general dentist and hygienist are your primary oral and dental care providers. Just like a GP manages your general medical care, a dentist manages your overall oral and dental health, including:


  • Routine dental check-ups – to identify any issues promptly.
  • Teeth cleaning and polishing – so your mouth feels fresh and your smile looks its best.
  • Preventative dental care – to maintain the health of your teeth, gums, and other oral tissues.
  • Basic oral cancer screening – to identify any new lumps, bumps, or lesions as early as possible, and rule out or promptly address issues.
  • Diagnosing and treating tooth decay – to maintain your teeth and alleviate pain and discomfort.
  • Diagnosing and treating gum disease – to preserve your oral and overall health and wellbeing and help prevent chronic illnesses.
  • Fillings, including amalgam filling replacement to repair teeth, prevent pain, and maximise your safety.
  • Root canal treatment – to save infected or dead teeth.
  • Tooth extractions (including wisdom teeth) – to address advanced tooth decay, gum disease, infection, trauma, or overcrowding.
  • Crowns and Bridges – An option to replace missing teeth or protect cracked or damaged teeth.

Hence, you can make sure that your visits to the dentist combined with optimal dental care practices at home will result in multiple benefits for your general health.

Our experienced hygiene team focuses on preventing oral diseases such as gum disease, tooth decay, among other conditions. In fact, oral diseases are frequent in the Australian population, which significantly affects their quality of life.

If a disease is already present, early detection can prevent further complex and costly dental work.

No rushed or quick dental appointments

Our years working in dentistry have taught us the importance of delivering appointments that address your dental needs and concerns with great detail and no rush.

Quick checkups and cleans often do not comply with the time necessary to perform the thorough and complete cleaning/examination you may need. As we take extra time, you will access high-end dental procedures with more value during the same visit.

Once your comprehensive exam is completed, a treatment plan along with recommendations will be discussed with you. The dentist and hygienist will take the time with you to explain the whole process and resolve and questions you have throughout.
