Do you dread going to the dentist? People who felt this way have changed their minds after a visit to Ocean View Dental. One patient told Dr Nada Putrus, the dentist at Ocean View Dental -- You changed my impression of dentists.'' Another patient said she had enjoyed her visit, although she had always hated going to the dentist. Then there was the 99 year old patient whose comment after she was treated was I lived for almost a century, and I found you the best den- tist I have ever been to.'' Feedback from patients has been overwhelmingly positive since Ocean View Dental opened in February last year. Dr Putrus has a caring, gentle approach which puts patients at their ease. You'll find the full range of dental services here: Cos- metic dentistry, oral surgery, crowns and bridges, perio- dontal care, veneers, root canal treatments, teeth whitening, and general den- tistry for the whole family. Costs are affordable and treatment options can be suggested to suit your budget. For new patients, Dr Putrus offers a free exam including two digital X rays -- and for a limited time, patients can receive a 10 percent discount on treat- ments. Dental treatment is free for children up to 18 years old. It is recommended for parents to register their children for this free treatment as early as possible. While school age children under 13 are nor- mally referred by their school dental nurse, they can be taken directly to the dentist outside school hours. For further information about this, visit www.letstalk teeth.co.nz Dr Putrus is a member of the Dental Council of New Zealand, the New Zealand Dental Association and the Auckland Dental Association. Ocean View Dental has state-of-the-art equipment including a digital X-ray machine which minimises exposure to X-rays.

The Skin Institute uses the latest advanced technology for treating veins. The highly experienced vein doctors, registered nurses and technical staff can treat your veins using sclerotherapy, vein ultrasound mapping, endovenous laser treatment (EVLT) or varicose vein sur- gery. Sclerotherapy is a proce- dure used to treat dilated blood vessels on the legs, mainly broken capillaries and spider veins. A solution called Sclerovein or Fibrovein is injected with a very fine needle into the blood vessel and the solution irritates the lining of the vessels causing it to stick together. Within a few weeks the injected veins fade. Most patients achieve a 60 to 90 percent improvement of treated veins. EVLT is often used now to treat large varicose veins instead of surgery or injection therapy. The treatment is done in the clinic under local anaesthetic, which means that there is very little dis- ruption to your daily life. However, not all veins are suitable for EVLT, so an ultrasound scan and map of the leg veins first will decide the most appropriate treat- ment option. Because everyone is differ- ent and there are several treatment options available, it's important to consult an expert first. The Skin Institute's vein team includes Mr Stephen Benson and Mr Isaac Cranshaw, both highly regarded vein surgeons with extensive surgical experience. They are assisted by Dr Karen Parker, a skilled vein physician to ensure you receive the best possible care. People often wait too long before seeing a specialist about their vein problems. Seeking treatment for vis- ible veins is not vanity, as varicose and spider veins may be indications of signifi- cant venous disease. The Skin Institute is an affiliated provider to South- ern Cross (for patients who meet medical necessity cri- teria). For more information please phone the Skin Institute on 0800 SKIN DR (754 637) or visit www.skininstitute.co.nz for more information.
