Dental Health

You should see a dentist for regular check-ups, not just when you have pain in your mouth or sore teeth or gums.

The dentist and dental assistant will look in your mouth, at your teeth and your gums. The dentist will help you to clean and protect your teeth, and look after problems such as pain and infections.

You can also learn how to look after your teeth.

Language speakers can be arranged to support you during your appointment.


The Congress Dental Clinic is located at 25 Gap Road.

Call 1800 142 900 or (08) 8951 4488 to make an appointment.
