Sirona Dental Systems has generously donated a state-of- the-art 3D CEREC Machine to the Dental Clinic at Cerebral Palsy Alliance.

Mike Stone the Managing Director of Sirona presented this world class unit to the Clinic at a recent special event night .

Guests were treated to a display of the CEREC unit. The ultimate in digital dentistry technology, it significantly cuts waiting times and discomfort for patients needing restorations.

This sophisticated scanning technology means patients need only one appointment to have certain dental needs addressed.

For people living with a disability this is most welcome.

The CEREC unit removes the many challenges of taking impressions to provide treatment. It often eliminates the need for multiple visits. This ensures our dentists are able to provide their patients with a positive experience and quality dentistry.

The patient can remain in the comfort of their chair as a specialised wand operated by the dentist makes a scan. The dentist can then create a custom made crown, bridge or porcelain filling. 

One patient, Kylie, had dentures that were uncomfortable and had started to rub her gums. She was one of the clinic’s first clients to be treated using CEREC. She now has a fixed bridge.

‘Not having to wear removable dentures has changed my life and taken away the discomfort I used to endure. Thank you Sirona and the dentists.’

We have a dedicated team of experienced dentists providing all aspects of clinical dentistry. We also have the opportunity to see clients under a general anaesthetic at Mona Vale Hospital when necessary. Several dentists have been volunteering for more 30 years.

Our Dental Clinic operates thanks to the generosity of our thirty-five volunteer dentists, seven dental hygienists, an Oral Surgeon, an Orthodontist and a Dentist who specialises in Children’s dentistry. All our staff undertake specialised training funded by NSW Health.

The Clinic is open two days a week and services are available for children, adolescents and adults with cerebral palsy.
