BDSc (UWA) | Principal Dentist
Dr. Eugene Khoo
Dr. Eugene is the owner and principal dentist of Platinum Smile Dental Mandurah.
Growing up in Fremantle, his favourite subjects in high school were art and science, so dentistry was a natural choice. In 2001, Dr. Eugene graduated from the University of Western Australia with a Bachelor of Dental Science degree and commenced work in Mandurah. Over the next few years he worked in a variety of large group clinics across Perth and Mandurah. During that time, he came to the realisation that he wanted to offer a better experience for people seeing the dentist. Where excellent patient care and quality dentistry was a focus.
So in late 2007, Dr. Eugene opened the doors to Platinum Smile Dental Centre.
Dr. Eugene enjoys all aspects of dentistry, but he gets the most joy from just getting to know the people he treats everyday. Some of his patients have been coming back to see him for the past 16 years. In recent years, Dr. Eugene has focused more on implant dentistry and prosthodontics (crowns and bridgework) in the use of cosmetic dentistry and fixing up worn-out aging teeth.
Dr. Eugene believes the learning dentist is the good dentist. So to bring you the best in modern dentistry he commits himself to many additional courses and lectures throughout the year. Of note, he has completed a full year at the Brener Implant Institute in Sydney, a teaching facility that exclusively trains dentist on dental implant surgery. In 2016 he obtained his mini residency in Prosthodontics (crowns and bridgework) in Brisbane taught by world-renowned specialist. And now in 2018, will finish the full year program at the Restoring Excellence Academy trained by one of Australia’s most respected dentist and other international educators.
Outside of dentistry, Dr. Eugene enjoys spending time with family, catching up with friends and travelling. He dreams to taking his wife and daughter to Paris one day! He is a diehard Freo docker supporter. Also he has Australia’s largest collection of rare dwarf catfish (Corydoras) in 64 aquariums in a dedicated fish room at home.
Dr. Eugene is available Monday to Thursday and usually the first Saturday of every month.
