A Customised Treatment Experience

Your values and goals are different than that of your neighbour. So are your oral health needs. When you come to Southbridge Dental for care, we want to get to know you on a personal level to cater recommendations appropriate to your current and future oral health goals.

Anytime we recommend a particular type of treatment, we will share information with you through digital X-rays and imaging technology that allows you to see what we see. After presenting all viable options to you, we will outline the appropriate care plan including all associated fees that are involved. You will never have to expect the unexpected when it comes to treatment expenses.

Kimberly Dental Team Ltd (KDT)

The Kimberley Dental Team is a team of visiting volunteers from the dental profession and allied health professionals, aiming to enhance current resources and levels of dental care for indigenous children and their families in the Kimberley region of Western Australia.

Dr Simon Shanahan, Dr Milly Woon and assistant Louise Richards have volunteered on multiple trips since 2014. Donating a week at a time, they work long hard days delivering dental care to as many people as they can, and camp in swags under the Kimberly stars each night. What an incredible way to give back to those in need of care in such a remote pate of our state.

For information on Simon’s most recent trip to the Kimberly and for more information about the KDT and how to support them please visit http://www.kimberleydentalteam.com/.
