Get the Answers You Need at West Perth Dental Centre

You have questions, we have answers. We’ve put together a list of frequently asked questions to help you make informed decisions about your oral health.


We are more than happy to answer any questions you may have about the services we offer and
what to expect during your visit. Below are the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions.

Whether you have great oral hygiene or could use some improvement, it is important to visit the dentist every six months. This may seem like a lot, but keeping your teeth and gums healthy is necessary. Your dentist can catch any problems early and prevent them from becoming severe.

It is important to visit the dentist regularly because they can identify any potential problems early on and make treatment recommendations. Regular dental checkups can help prevent you from developing more serious conditions like gum disease or tooth decay, which could otherwise alter your life forever!
The recommended age is 12 months old or when their first tooth becomes visible, whichever comes first. This may seem early, but it’s important to establish good oral care habits from a young age. During the first visit, the dentist will assess your child’s teeth and gum health and give you advice on how to brush and floss their teeth properly.
If you have a dental emergency, get in touch with West Perth Dental Centre immediately. We will assess the situation and design a treatment plan just for you. If you cannot come in, take over-the-counter medication to alleviate pain or apply a cold compress to reduce swelling until you can see us.
We offer a variety of payment options to suit your needs. We accept all major health funds, including nib and HBF. We also have other payment options, such as Afterpay, humm, Zip, and SuperCare. In addition, we accept the DVA Health Care Card and participate in the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS). So whether you’re covered by insurance or not, we can help you get the dental care you need.
Different health funds can cover various dental treatments under an extras policy. You may be able to get some form of dental cover, depending on the level of extras cover you have.
  • General dentistry usually covers annual checkups, cleanings, fluoride treatment, and minor fillings.
  • Major dental covers more complex procedures such as complex fillings, surgical tooth extractions, root canals, crowns, dentures, bridges, gum disease treatment and orthodontics. In some cases, health funds will also cover orthodontics for children.
Please get in touch with your health fund provider to determine your level of cover.

At our clinic, we know that your time is valuable. We offer HICAPS for quick and easy health fund claims processing. With HICAPS, you can skip the paperwork and claim your benefits immediately.

We know that finding time for dental appointments during the week can be difficult. That’s why we’re happy to offer Saturday hours from 8:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. Whether you’re looking for a routine cleaning or more extensive dental work, we’ll be able to accommodate your schedule.
At West Perth Dental Centre, your comfort and convenience are always our top priorities. That’s why we offer free patient parking at the back of our building. In addition, there are plenty of parking options around the premises, so you’ll never have to worry about finding a spot.
