Platinum No Gap

At Bupa Dental Casuarina, we don't just fix problems with your teeth. Our main goal is to help you and your family develop good oral hygiene habits through a holistic approach to dentistry, so you can enjoy good dental health for the long term.

On your first visit to our clinic, we'll get to know you and understand your unique dental needs. We'll ask you to complete a new patient form that tells your dentist what they need to know about your medical and dental history, including any medication you're currently taking. Then we'll carry out a full examination of your mouth, which may involve x-rays.

If we notice any issues with your teeth or gums, we'll discuss the most suitable treatment options with you and answer any questions you have. We know that every patient is different, and we'll work with you to create your personalised oral health plan.

Our experienced dentists can offer a comprehensive range of treatments, from restorative procedures such as crowns and implants to cosmetic surgery and children's dentistry. We can also provide emergency dental care if you break a tooth or need to see a dentist as soon as possible.

Our dental clinic is easy to find in The Village Shopping Centre, with two hours free parking and a bus stop right outside. Find out more about Bupa Dental Casuarina by visiting us on Monday to Friday or getting in touch on (08) 8945 1005 to make an appointment.
