Modern Equipment

We have gained our reputation because at Portman Healthcare we aim to look after you as we would wish to be looked after; this means having access to advanced dental technology.

We continually invest in our practices and equip them with modern dental technology increasing our clinician’s diagnostic capacity, allowing them to provide you with the most effective and least intrusive treatment.

Visual Monitors in the chairs

By using intra oral cameras and projecting the images onto the screen our dentists can show you exactly what is occurring in your mouth. This helps you to understand any problems and helps your clinician explain the proposed treatment.

Lateral Cephalometric Radiographs

A highly advanced scanner that is used by the Orthodontist and specialists to take 2-D images. This allows sophisticated and highly accurate images to be taken of your jaw and bone structure providing the most thorough diagnostic information possible and ensuring you get the very best treatment.


An OPG gives your dentists a panoramic view of your mouth. This allows much more detailed analysis of your teeth, jaws, sinus and joint health and provides valuable information to your clinician.

Low Radiation Digital X-ray

Portman Healthcare uses low radiation digital x-ray equipment to instantaneously send images of your teeth to your clinician’s computer allowing the immediate diagnosis of any issues that are embedded below the surface. The system also reduces x-ray radiation by up to 90% over conventional x-ray equipment.

Intra-oral Imaging

Our state of the art cameras allows your dentist to show you exactly what they are seeing inside your mouth. This helps our clinicians explain the problem when treatment is required and increases the patients understanding of their treatment.

Washer Disinfectors and Vacuum Autoclaves

Autoclaving of instruments is the last stage in a lengthy process to ensure complete sterility. The most advanced type of autoclave used in dental surgeries are vacuum Class B autoclaves which are able to achieve complete sterility of all instrument types. Every instrument is logged regarding its initial disinfection in the washer disinfector machines through to the end of the vacuum cycle to ensure complete peace of mind for our patients.
