The team at Heyfield Family Dental Care prides itself on providing gentle, compassionate, pain-free dental services and quality care in a modern, relaxed environment.
“I treat my patients as I would like to be treated myself, like they are my family, “ Dr Stevens says, adding that children need particularly gentle care.
“I see a lot of anxious kids who have had a bad experience with other dentists. We do whatever we can to create an environment that’s gentle, relaxed and fun.”
