The South Street Team

We have the privilege of working with some of Western Australia’s most qualified and experienced dentists, hygienists and clinical support staff.

Our practice is not run by a revolving door of new graduates. Many of our dedicated and friendly team members have worked together for more than 10 years. Some have been with us right from the start.

As we are based in one convenient location, our team is able to easily consult with each other to give you the best possible care.
