This allows Sanc- tuary to be open on two late nights and Saturdays so they are available when patients need them! The practice will also be open throughout the Christmas holi- days other than the statutory days. Yvonne Vannoort launched the prac- tice eight years ago as a holistic dental practice with the focus on using the best technologies available to deliver very gentle care. The overall aim is to help patients achieve optimal health from a dental perspective. According to this philosophy, Sanctuary is mercury-amalgam free, using materials for fillings that are better accepted by the body. This also applies to children, (year 9 to 18 years of age) who are enrolled for their free yearly checks and treatment. Sanctuary has led the way in the use of an array of amazing technologies and is currently the first practice in New Zealand to use a new laser technology called DIAGNOcam. This detects decay by shin- ing a laser light through the tooth and has proved extremely helpful in diagnosing decay in pregnant mothers, children and those with special needs. Using computerised technol- ogy, ceramic restorations are used to restore teeth that are bro- ken and heavily filled. The cost is $899 (conditions apply) and only one visit is needed to complete the work. Missing teeth are replaced with advanced implant technology by an implant surgeon at Sanctuary. Consultations for this treatment are free. For the nervous, Sanctuary uses sleep dentistry, allowing patients to be so relaxed that time flies by and most treatments are easily completed in one visit while one is comfortably snoozing. Sanctuary also offers sedation to children over five years of age, as well as deeper sedation treat- ment using a visiting anaesthetist for children needing difficult treat- ments. And those thinking about straightening their teeth, do enquire about Sanc- tuary’s clear alterna- tive, Invisalign. It’s almost invisible! Importantly, $60 covers a comprehen- sive examination and X-rays and online booking is avail- able for new clients. Remember, there is also a lift for those needing to avoid the stairs. By training all her team in “the sanctu- ary way”, Yvonne has ensured the formula of care she concep- tualised eight years ago has been main- tained. She has a committed team which is passionate about caring for each client and responding to their individual needs. All staff members pride themselves in their care and their attention to making every visit to the dentist a pleasur- able one – and, yes, that’s what people say about their visits!
