At Canterbury Family Dental we are committed to using the latest technology to provide you and your family with the highest possible quality of care and to ensure your comfort.


The EMS AIRFLOW® ONE is an advanced machine using Guided Biofilm Therapy, which is the latest technology in preventative dental care.

When you visit Canterbury Family Dental for teeth cleaning with our experienced dental hygienist, we’ll offer GBT (Guided Biofilm Therapy) as our standard dental cleaning approach, with the use of the EMS AIRFLOW prophylaxis Master device.

If required, your dental hygienist will firstly place a coloured dye onto your teeth to expose any plaque and biofilm present in your mouth. That’s because it shows you the areas in your mouth that you need to spend some more time cleaning at home.

Together with the warm water, a fine powder is then sprayed to remove the soft plaque on the teeth know as biofilm. This powder-water-air combination removes the decay and gum disease causing bacteria without the instrument ever touching your teeth. So not only is your clean more comfortable, but it’s also more effective!  The ultrasonic scaler will then only be used to remove any hard deposits on the teeth known as tartar or calculus.

The EMS AIRFLOW’S new technology will change the way you feel about dental cleans and improve your hygiene experience.

Intra Oral Camera

We use an intra oral camera to magnify your teeth so we can see problems that may go undetected with the naked eye.

Using this small camera, we can photograph your teeth from angles you would not be able to see when approaching from the front.

These images are digital and produced in real time, so we can show you problem areas on the screen and discuss them with you at the time of your appointment.

Combat Dental Anxiety With In Chair Entertainment

To ensure your appointment is as relaxing as possible:

  • We offer video goggles to patients so you can watch your favourite DVD during your dental procedures.
  • We also offer headphones and music to help you relax throughout your appointment.

Digital Radiographs

Digital radiographs are a more efficient procedure and emit up to 80% less radiation than traditional x-rays. They can be stored on computer files and are available instantly without a wait – saving you time at your dental appointment.

Infection Control

We adopt the latest infection control standards at our practice. At Canterbury Family Dental, your health and safety is our highest priority. All our staff are trained in stringent hygiene and safety policies, in line with the guidelines as set by the Dental Practice Board.
