Our Technology

Our innovative dental care is supported by the most advanced dental technology available…

In order to provide our patients with the gold standard in dentistry, at our Meadowbank Dental Practice we have invested in state- of- the- art technology including:


Our CEREC technology allows our dental professionals to design, mill and manufacture crowns, inlays, onlays and veneers all within a single appointment. This means that our patients can save time and money in our chair, whilst receiving outstanding and natural looking results.


Experience drill and needle free dentistry with the help of our WwaterLlase laser technology. This innovative tool promotes conservative and comfortable dentistry that is generally performed without the need for anaesthetic.


Insignia is a program which enables the high-tech creation and placement of braces which are made uniquely for your smile. Dr Louis Chan will use this fully interactive software at either his Meadowbank location to create a virtual ‘map’ of your smile and maloclussion. You will see a virtual display of your smile on the unique software and Dr Chan will explain how your treatment will work and show you how it will look once installed in your mouth and once treatment is complete.

Insignia is computer-aided orthodontics to ensure a more precise and clinical result that is much more predictable than traditional orthodontics. Your treatment will be performed with maximum efficiency and comfort as most of the technical components will be determined in the program before placement even begins.

Cone Beam Scanner

Our cone beam scanner allows our dental professionals to create a comprehensive 3D image of your oral area. This allows our team to plan and execute complex procedures such as full mouth reconstructions with much greater accuracy.

Top of the Range Dental Chairs

Comfort is one of our key priorities at MyDental Care, and as such we have invested in the highest quality dental chairs to ensure you are comfortable throughout your treatment.

We provide the highest level of service and technology to our patients, and Dr Louis Chan runs a team of passionate individuals.
