The dental unit looks just like a truck - how can it meet all my dental needs?
The dental unit may look like a truck from the outside, but inside it is a fully-equipped state-of-the-art surgery, offering the same high quality service and dentistry that you would expect from an Iosis clinic. We even have a small waiting area, complete with comfy seats.Top of page
What sort of treatment is available there?
We are able to offer virtually all the services we offer at our other practices, with the exception of specialist treatments which may require specialised equipment. We will offer regular examinations and hygiene care, restorative work such as fillings and crowns.Top of page
