The Polished Story
“Passionate about helping you establish good foundations for your oral health and achieving your smile goals.”
Polished was created to fulfill our passion of providing exceptional dental care for our patients. Offering Melbourne’s 1st Dental Hygiene Studio and teeth whitening bar to the South Eastern suburbs. We wanted to provide our community with a safe and effective teeth whitening service that is currently in such high demand.
As a dental professional with over 20 years of experience in the field and with restrict regulations around our profession, you can be assured that having your teeth whitening treatment with us it’s safe, the results are guaranteed and long lasting.
Currently, more than 36% of Australians suffers from dental fear or anxiety and a further 12% with extreme dental phobias. For this reason, our services are entirely focused around providing treatments with a soothing and gentle approach. Our spa-like studio allow our clients to relax and feel pampered instead of leaving sore and traumatised. We’ve removed the white-coat and sterile clinical settings and replaced it with a modern, purpose-built, yet warm and welcoming studio that sets out to calm and relax the senses.
Polished is operated by dental professionals so you know you’re in safe hands.
