Important COVID-19 UpdateMore Info

Dear Valued Aardent Dental Centre Patient, It seems that all we hear and talk about these days is COVID-19(Coronavirus). Nevertheless, we want to reassure you that we are taking extra measures in addition to our usual stringent hygiene practices. The health of our patients, staff and anyone who enters the building is of paramount importance to us. We are taking a multitude of precautions as recommended by the appropriate health authorities (and some of our own). These include,

  • Spacing of waiting room chairs by a minimum of 1.5meters.
  • Removal of magazines, newspapers and children’s toys from the waiting room.
  • Offering patients to wait in their cars if they prefer.
  • Insisting that all people who enter the building use hand sanitiser (provided).
  • Asking all people to practice high levels of cough/sneezing hygiene.
  • Requesting that anyone with a temperature/flu like symptoms contact us and postpone their dental appointment.
  • Regularly sanitising building surfaces like doorknobs etc.
  • Requiring patients for some procedures to rinse with 1% hydrogen peroxide solution (known to kill coronavirus in the mouth).
  • Availability of non-contact body temperature devices for patient screening if the situation escalates.

Please rest assured that we are open for business and able to continue our excellent level of treatment for you.

As you will be aware the situation is ever changing as will be our response. We will endeavour to keep you informed along the way.

Kindest regards,

Richard Williams

Aardent Dental Centre Team

About us

When Dr Richard Williams arrived in Australia from his native England, he started searching for a job the old-fashioned way: by looking through the Yellow Pages® and making phone calls. He contacted Aardent Dental Centre, owned by Dentist Dr Julian O’Brien. After a rigorous interview process, Dr Richard started in February 1992.

Dr Julian became a lifelong friend and mentor and later partnered with Dr Richard in their practice. The Aardent Dental Centre legacy of high-quality dentistry continues to this day, with Dr Richard serving families and individuals in our community.


A Convenient Location for Commuters and Local Residents

Aardent Dental Centre has stood the test of time, in the same building since the early 1980s and dating back years before that in a previous location.

The location is just 10 minutes outside of Perth, and our patients come from a large area including Kensington, Victoria Park, Burswood, South Perth and Perth City. Many stop by on the bus to or from work or home. Others drive a distance from rural areas to receive first-class care from our qualified, caring professionals.

Our practice name comes from the word “ardent” which expresses our passion for helping to improve the oral health of all ages. We’re devoted to providing top-notch dental services, from general dentistry to more specialised services such as dental implants and veneers. Nearly all of your needs can be met in-house, though we are happy to refer you to other practitioners when necessary. Our experienced, welcoming team are ready to take care of you!
