In 2013 the team at Northside Dental & Implant Centre were delighted to have expanded its care through the establishment of a new dental practice in Hornsby. Taking over a practice previously established by Dr John Ball, Northside has completely renovated the surgeries and sterilisation area.

Dr Ian Sweeney

Conveniently located at 79 Burdett Street, the practice is in close proximity to Hornsby Hospital and other allied medical services. The Hornsby practice has plenty of on-site parking and offers all aspects of general, family, children’s and cosmetic dentistry and dental surgery.

Northside Dental & Implant Centre strives to provide the utmost in care and safety for all patients. Both locations offer you and your family exactly the same processes and materials. The Hornsby practice now has the same modern equipment and high standard of infection control that earned our Turramurra practice its Quality In Practice accreditation.

Having two symbiotic practices in such close proximity allows us to enhance patient care by expanding the hours of operation. For your convenience, Hi-CAPS and electronic payment processing is available at both facilities. The same digital imaging and record keeping system ensures doctors and administration staff can access records immediately, as necessary.

The Turramurra practice is located next to the council car park. It also offers all aspects of general, family, children’s and cosmetic dentistry, as well as oral and implant surgery and treatment under conscious sedation.

Treatment under conscious or intravenous sedation is used as an effective way of providing profound anxiety relief and pain control during dental procedures.

The amnesic effect of the medications makes sedation an ideal treatment choice for nervous or phobic patients, or for those undergoing long or complex procedures, or procedures that patients would rather not remember. Sedation is also ideal for those patients with strong or heightened gag reflexes.

Dr Sweeney also has a regular operating list at the Sydney Adventist Hospital (SAN) surgical centre which greatly simplifies treatment of complex cases or patients who are phobic or have special needs. All dental procedures from examinations and cleans to complex crown and bridge work or dental implants may be performed under general anaesthesia, should situations demand such treatment.
