You can feel confident when you visit Duncraig Village Dental for so many reasons.
Some take confidence from the state-of-the-art equipment; others find comfort in the relaxing surroundings; whilst many are encouraged by the staff’s impeccable track record and history of providing quality dental services to the people of Perth. Duncraig Village Dental was established in 1996 by Dr Andrew Ziepe, who graduated in 1990 from the University of Western Australia with a Bachelor of Dental Science degree.
Since that time he has kept at the forefront of dental excellence, embracing new technology and ideas to ensure that you, his patient, always receive the best possible dental care available. An example of this was in 1998 when Dr Ziepe was one of the first dentists in Perth to embrace the benefits of air abrasion and micro dentistry. This forward thinking continues to this day with fantastic introductions such as laser and cosmetic dentistry.
