Our Approach

Never, EVER, A One-Size-Fits-All Approach

When you ask us to take care of your smile and those of your loved ones, we take this responsibility very seriously.

Every patient has had a unique experience of life, so no two mouths are the same.  A one size fits all approach doesn't apply to dental health. That’s why we customise every treatment to the specific needs of the individual. 

We Nurture And Enhance What Nature Has Already Given You

Smiles are beautiful, healthy smiles especially so. 

Just as a garden needs regular and loving care to thrive and grow, so too must a smile be regularly checked and nurtured. And we never forget that there is always a wonderful, unique and special individual behind every smile. 

And when it comes to making cosmetic changes to the way a person smiles, we love enhancing their natural beauty.

Above All, We Strive To Do No Harm

We value holistic care and prefer to take a minimalistic and preventative approach to dental treatment. 

For example, we do all we can to preserve one of the most precious parts of your body: your enamel. Enamel is a finite resource: once lost, it can never grow back. 

If there is a choice of available treatment options, we prefer to utilise the one that conserves as much natural enamel as possible. Treatments should always deliver the best possible outcome for the individual.

Our Team

The Alma Dental team consists of many experienced, friendly and compassionate professionals. Each member of our team has been hand-picked to join our dental family. Each one is people-focused, a great communicator and, of course, very good at what they do.

We genuinely love working together. The cheerful and positive atmosphere in our practice allows us to give our best to our patients whenever we're at work.

Our Clinical Staff


Teresa Iaria

Front Office Coordinator

Hi, I’m Teresa, receptionist and front-end coordinator. My team calls me “T”. I’m a local: I grew up in Leederville (the next suburb), and I’m really happy to be back in North Perth after 27½ years away.

The best part of my day is greeting and meeting patients, and I love catching up on their news. I strive to assist patients in any way possible. I also like making coffee for those who would love one!

I work with an amazing team at Alma Dental.  The dentists have such passionate, caring and modern views on Dentistry, and I’m proud to be a part of such an exciting dental practice.


Lynn Jackson

Clinical Assistant

Hi, I am Lynn and I have been a dental nurse for over 30 years. 

Originally from the UK, my husband and I moved to Perth over 15 years ago and I have two grown up sons, both play soccer, so I am a soccer mum on the weekends.

I enjoy greeting and meeting patients, and I love catching up on their news, especially anything to do with their pets, as I love to chat about my dog.

I love being part of the Alma team and working for such professional and caring dentists.

Kira, Dental Nurse

Kira Brennan

Clinical Assistant

Hello, I’m Kira and I’ve been Dental Nursing since 2013. In between I have become a mum of 2 girls and worked in a few practices around Perth. I am also currently studying to become a Counsellor, so if you’re feeling anxious about your appointment I’m your gal!

What I love most about Dental Nursing is looking after patients and ensuring that they feel comfortable and important. I love hearing people’s stories, as well as making sure they don’t drown!

See you soon!


Melody Jing He

Clinical Assistant

Hi, I’m Melody, a busy mum with two boys. I have been working as a dental assistant since 2016. Apart from providing excellent chair side assisting and infection control at the clinic, I also ensure patients get the best care and treatment by keeping them comfortable and well looked after.

I like working with our amazing dentists because they’re just so professional and passionate about what they do. Seeing patients leaving with their smile back is so rewarding.

I can’t wait to meet you at Alma Dental!

Our History

First established Dr Vincent Tsang, Alma Dental has been part of the North Perth community since 1986. Our name is, of course, a reflection of our location, which is the corner of Alma Road and Fitzgerald Street.

Dr Dee-Anna Luong purchased the practice in 2014 when Dr Tsang retired. She has since introduced new technologies, an even broader range of dental and cosmetic services, and a new team of passionate people who share her dedication to helping the people of North Perth and surrounds to enjoy beautiful, healthy smiles.

Dr Kate Alderman joined the practice in 2016.

Dr Dee and Dr Kate have over 35 years combined clinical experience and will take care of your restorative and complex dental needs.  Offering gentle care, with empathy and patience for those who feel anxious.

Lily, our Oral Health Therapist has been with Alma Dental since 2022.  She is also a practicing registered nurse and is gentle and caring.  She has an interest in general dental preventative care, paediatric dentistry as well as each patient’s medical and dental health.

We have been fortunate to retain many of Dr Tsang's original patients. Dr Dee and Dr Kate have since welcomed many more new patients into our amazing dental family.

To those of you who we are yet to join our dental family, we sincerely look forward to getting to know you.
