Welcome To Our New Website

We are incredibly pleased to announce the launch of our new website that has been completely revamped, redesigned, and rebuilt. In addition, we have changed the name of our practice from simply Dr Tony Eldridge to Hobart Orofacial Pain and Special Needs Clinic.

The reasons are several. First we decided that our old website was looking ‘a bit dated’.  Despite regularly receiving positive comments from people all over the country, and even from overseas about how informative our website was, we felt that we could do it even better.  Keeping away from a standard clinical website full of pictures of pretty smiles and sterile clinical rooms, our highest priority was to design a website that was informative, up to date with the latest best practice medicine and dentistry, very easy through which to navigate, allowing downloads and links to useful information, and importantly to impart the same feeling of calmness, relaxation, and tranquility that we have adopted here at our rooms.  And needless to say, to advertise Tasmania for all the beauty it presents, as many header pictures are from the East Coast, the Central Highlands, Cradle Mountain, and around Hobart.

In addition to the information from our previous website, we have added a few more pages to the Home, About, TMJ, and Snoring Sleep Apnoea sections.  These include snoring and sleep apnoea disorders in children, botox for TMJ pain and headaches, a health and well being section, and an interstate and overseas contact list.  We have also expanded our oral surgery pages to include a section on implants, tongue ties, and wisdom teeth removal.

An exciting expansion to our practice however, is our continued desire to assist those people less fortunate than ourselves including people with special needs such as the elderly and those suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s, and the intellectually and physically disabled.  Furthermore, we have a passion for seeing and treating people who suffer dental anxiety, fears, and phobia.  It is incredibly rewarding to helping those overcome their fears and be able to have dental treatment conducted. This is our new section on Special Needs Dentistry and Dental Phobias.  Hence, our name change to the Hobart Orofacial Pain and Special Needs Clinic.

And lastly, we now offer a sedation service not presently available anywhere else in Tasmania to all those persons who would prefer not to, or cannot, have regular dental treatment in the chair. There are many techniques to providing sedation to people that help alleviate their fear or anxiety, and allow pain and worry free dental treatment, without the need to be admitted to hospital.

We hope you find our new website and scope of practice as informative and useful as we believe it is.

Kind Regards

Dr T
