On behalf of all my staff, I welcome you to our dental practice! We are pleased you have selected us to care for your dental needs. We want you to know that we are committed to providing you with the highest quality of oral health care, in the most gentle, efficient, and enthusiastic manner possible.
In our office, we give each patient personal attention. We believe that a close relationship allows you to experience pleasant dentistry. We are aware that some patients may sometimes have uneasiness about dental care. We will make every effort to help relieve any apprehension you may have.
In order for us to serve you, we must have communication. We need to know your feelings. It may be necessary for us to spend some time educating you about dental disease, treatment options, and prevention. We want our patients to assume an active role in their dental health. The patient who has knowledge about the nature of dental disease, and understands how it can be prevented, has the ability to assist the dentist and his staff in obtaining and preserving good dental health.
We appreciate the value of your time. Except for emergency situations, you can expect us to be on time for you. We will appreciate the same courtesy. No charge will be made for rescheduling your appointments, provided twenty-four hours advance notice is given, so that your time may be given to another patient.
If, at any time, you have a question about any treatment, fee, or service, please discuss it with us promptly and openly. Your understanding and cooperation will help us to create a pleasant relationship.
Ms Prithika Vijayan, BDS
I am a general dentist who has joined the staff at Peninsula Dental since July 2015. I recently moved to Wellington from Hawkes Bay and I live with my husband in Whitby. I enjoy all facets of general dentistry, with particular interests in Root canal treatment and minimally invasive dentistry. I strongly believe that involving patients in the clinical decisions made regarding their dental treatment produces best results and am strongly committed to explaining all treatment options available and tailoring them to suit patient needs. My focus is comprehensive dental care and oral health education with a gentle and caring attitude.
I am keen on keeping myself abreast of the advances in dental science and research thereof.
Besides Dentistry, my interests are cooking, music and being a homemaker.
I am so looking forward to meeting with the people in the community.
