Practice & Team

Canning Vale Dental Centre is a privately owned dental practice, established in Canning Vale for 22 years and relocated to its current modern purpose built premises in 1999. Our growth has been achieved by word of mouth and referrals.

The practice is jointly owned by Derek Mark and Bill Hawkes and supported by a friendly team of dental auxiliaries who have been selected and trained in specific duties to provide our patients with optimum dental care.
