Animals use their mouths and teeth for many important functions such as play, eating, picking up items and self-defence, making these structures as important to them as our hands are to us. Diseases and injuries affecting the teeth, mouth, or jaws are some of the most common problems facing cats and dogs today. If left untreated, these conditions may have serious consequences such as infection, pain, tooth loss and jaw fractures, resulting in a loss of quality of life.
We are the only specialist veterinary dentistry practice currently in Western Australia. Our goal is to compliment primary care veterinarians by offering advanced diagnostics to help identify uncommon or complex oral conditions, difficult or extensive dental extractions, and specialist procedures aimed at saving teeth rather than removing them. Additionally, we also offer continuing education opportunities in veterinary dentistry to primary care veterinarians.
Jaw fracture repair, oral tumour removal, cleft palate surgery, salivary gland surgery and other advanced oral and maxillofacial procedures.
Extensive and difficult extractions. Advanced procedures to save teeth.
Dentistry lectures and labs for vets and vet nurses. In-clinic options available.
PPD took fantastic care of my fur baby Jessie. Everything was explained thoroughly and I fully entrusted Dr Ng and nurse Ashleigh to do what was best for her. Thank you team.

Deciding that he wanted more, he moved to the United States to undertake Cornell University’s residency program in Dentistry & Oral Surgery, and passed board examinations to become a Diplomate of the American Veterinary Dental College in 2019. He has published multiple journal articles on veterinary dentistry, and has taught extensively in both undergraduate and continuing education settings. Dr Kevin moved back to Western Australia at the end of 2019 to restart Perth Pet Dentistry.
