About Us

Brief Company Profile

Dr Melanie Fowler and her husband Derek, are the owners of Kalgoorlie Dental Surgery.

Kalgoorlie Dental Surgery, locally owned and operated, has been servicing the Goldfields since 2005. Our clinicians are highly skilled and locally trained at the University of Western Australia.

We believe that preventive dental care is of utmost importance as no degree of dental treatment is ever as good as keeping your teeth and gums healthy in the first place.

We prioritise our patients' oral health and we provide personalised dental treatment tailored to each individual.
