Thanks yet again Dino for a fine piece of dental engineering! I'm smiling again!

I have just finished six months of treatment starting with a pretty tricky extraction followed by an implant, two inlays and numerous replacement white filings. Thank you Dino for an excellent job........I love my teeth now! I have no hesitation in recommending Dental Care Perth - state of the art equipment, beautiful modern new surgery, friendly and efficient staff and best of all a dentist who cares, does a professional job and can make me laugh all at the same time!

Lorna is a fellow runner who takes time to understand the problem and treat it accordingly. She now knows every inch of my left leg and it is all the better for it. She never rushes to "finish on time" but makes you feel you are her most important client....Highly recommended.......

Lorna provided Physiotherapy treatment during my marathon training and helped me to recover from a longstanding Achilles Tendon injury. I received a first class, professional and friendly service and would have no hesitation in recommending Lorna.

Been going there for a few years now and always had great experience just had root canal done and no problems at all would recommend going there Mr turner is quick and very efficient and his wife is so lovely and friendly makes you feel more relaxed

Great dentist. Nicole always does her utmost to ensure she looks after my teeth and my child's and always explains procedures fully so we understand what is happening. Much better than the dentist I went to previously in a local village who was awful.

Fantastic! Polite, professional, honest, respectful, caring, So glad Ive been to PPWC. They have certainly got me my life back. I used to struggle to get up in the morning with a feeling of tension all through my body. All that has gone; plus a whole lot more. Extremely patient too when one can't relax. Always kind and caring; never complain if you return to the surgery with discomfort after a treatment. They want you to be 100% comfortable. I even met Richard on his way home today with his coat on and he returned to re-treat me because I wasn't right. Patient always comes first. Thank you 100 times Richard.

I always thought superheros wore capes but Donata and Richard don't seem to. Even after 18 months into my treatment the miracles keep on happening!!! Thank you both for holding my hand on my ABC journey!!!
