About Us

Our Philosophy

Cottesloe Dental is committed to the promotion of lifelong dental health and supporting the wellbeing of our diverse community.

We aim to achieve this by providing dental education, preventative care and reconstructive dentistry using the latest techniques in a professional and friendly environment. We are proud of the quality service we have been providing for more than 100 years and strive to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible at Cottesloe Dental.

We treat patients of all ages, from 0 to 100+ years old, and of all needs and requirements. Our practice has been built upon being able to provide a long-lasting relationship between our dentists and patients, one that is able to adapt to our patients’ needs as they progress through life. Cottesloe Dental has grown to be a large dental practice, which at first can seem intimidating, however this allows us to provide a range of dentists to suit the needs and wishes of our patients, whilst also ensuring that we remain open and available should emergencies arise. It is our priority to ensure that our patients remain under the care of a single dentist, who will take responsibility for their management and for an ongoing, safe and positive environment.


We operate by appointment only. To most efficiently utilise your time and ours, please advise us with as much notice as possible should an emergency arise which makes it necessary for you to reschedule your appointment. Unless 24 HOURS NOTICE is given for cancellation, a fee may be charged.


Reception Waiting Area - Cottesloe Dental

Business Hours

The practice is open for appointments from 8am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday. In addition, for our regular patients, evening and Saturday appointments can be arranged on request. If your regular dentist is on leave, your records are available and reciprocal arrangements are in place for another Dentist at the practice to provide treatment if you wish.


Emergency Service

During office hours emergency treatment will, where possible, be provided by your regular dentist. If, however, this involves an unreasonable delay, one of our other Dentists will see you at the first available opportunity. For our regular patients, who require emergency treatment outside of practice hours, please follow the link to our emergency page Emergency dentistry

Specialist Referrals

Our dentists enjoy a close working relationship with a wide range of Perth dental specialists and it is our policy to refer patients where appropriate.


Infection Control

Infection control is of prime importance to us. Extensive precautions are taken to ensure that you are protected. We adhere to the standards set out in the AS/NZS standard 4815:2006 and follow Australian Dental Association directed guidelines. All our handpieces and instruments are sterilised by autoclaving after every patient. For those items that cannot be sterilised we use disposable, single use items. Barrier coverings are placed on surfaces which may be touched during treatment and these are changed after each visit. If you have any queries or are unsure of any aspect of sterilisation, please ask your dentist.


Estimates of Treatment Costs

Following an examination by your dentist, we will provide a written estimate of the treatment costs involved. This will also indicate the relevant treatment code numbers for reference to your health fund provider. Information regarding treatment cannot be accurately provided without examination / assessment by your dentist, and even then, on some occasions may need to be adjusted as a result of findings during the course of treatment. We will, of course, discuss any changes with you.

Through our affiliation with HICAPS and other organisations, we are able to help you obtain information regarding your benefits which may limit out of pocket expenses.
