Many people are not aware that good oral health is essential for total well-being. Taking care of your teeth and gums can also help you avoid treatment for tooth decay, gum disease and other oral health issues. Good oral health can also help you avoid embarrassing conditions such as bad breath or stained teeth. Also, more and more studies are showing that plaque build-up on teeth can contribute to artery and heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, certain types of cancers and other health problems, so regular preventive care visits along with proper daily brushing and flossing habits are essential.
At Western Smiles Dental Care, our caring team will develop an individualised ongoing oral care program for you that is best for you and your health needs. Our goal is to ensure you and your family members enjoy beautiful smiles and good oral health for the rest of your lives. This customised approach will allow us to identify any problems while they are still in their early stages and often easier—and less expensive—to treat.
We offer the dental treatments your family needs to enjoy good oral health, including crowns and bridges, tooth-coloured fillings, dental implants, cosmetic dentistry and emergency services.
We have a strong and proven preventive care programme offering an individualised approach. Our experienced team of dental hygienists and oral therapists work with our patients to tailor a home-care programme that best prevents oral disease. Our team takes great pride in providing an excellent patient experience.
We provide many options to suit each individual. Because we know every patient has unique needs, we offer specific programmes for our at-risk patients, including pregnant women, those undergoing chemotherapy, people who suffer from conditions such as dry mouth, the elderly and medically compromised and those taking bisphosphonate drugs.
We offer comprehensive screening for oral disease, assess risk factors and have access to Perth’s leading oral medicine and periodontal specialists should they be required.
Our practice is accredited by the Australian Dental Association and QIP. This ensures that you will receive high-quality care in a safe and regulated environment.
Dr Peter Duke has a passion for working with children and has the kind of personality to which kids are naturally attracted. One of his favourite things to do is make a child’s first visit to the dentist a fun and friendly experience. His goal is for kids to look forward to their next visit. Children who visit the dentist regularly for preventive care have the best chance of minimising future dental problems as they develop into adults. The trust that is developed as a child through fun and positive dental visits is a key factor for achieving good oral health for life.
Many people are anxious about visiting the dentist, but rather than simply offering sedation as a stop-gap, Dr Duke has a more unique approach to make people comfortable coming to Western Smiles Dental Care. Relationship-building is a crucial aspect of Dr Duke’s approach, and he takes the time to get to know those in his care as people—not just as patients. He firmly believes that it is a lack of a symbiotic relationship that causes most dental anxiety. He is happy to spend some time on the phone with those thinking of coming in before they even step foot into the clinic.
Dr Duke understands that anxiety and fear can be overcome when dental care is provided by a professional you know, like and trust. This proven pathway of building trust has allowed many patients to feel at ease when attending to their dental care. We understand that it is difficult to choose a new dentist. Dr Duke wants to help you feel reassured by your choice.
