Detailed Information

Dental Therapy Centre is the largest public dental health services provider in Western Australia, with a rich history dating back to 1926 when the first public dentist was employed by the Public Health Department. Committed to improving the health of Western Australians, the centre offers high-quality and efficient oral health services to eligible populations across the state. Through various service streams, including the School Dental Service and general dental clinics, Dental Therapy Centre aims to provide accessible and affordable dental care to those in need.

The School Dental Service, a public health program under Dental Health Services, offers free general dental care to students aged 5 to 16 years or until the end of year 11. With fixed and mobile dental therapy centres co-located with schools, the service is delivered statewide to ensure children have access to essential oral health services. Additionally, general dental clinics operating in metropolitan and regional areas provide subsidised general and emergency dental care to financially and geographically eligible Western Australians, further expanding the reach of quality dental services.

Patients receiving care at Dental Therapy Centre, whether through emergency treatments or general dental services, benefit from subsidised fees in line with government guidelines. The centre works to ensure that individuals receive up to 75% of the treatment cost covered by the Western Australian government, based on their assessed Centrelink income. With a focus on providing equitable access to dental care, Dental Therapy Centre plays a vital role in promoting oral health and well-being throughout the community.
