As a child, I had very crooked teeth and never used to smile. As a teenager, I had braces, and they gave me a huge boost in self-confidence. I was so inspired by my dentist, that I knew it was the career for me. I have truly enjoyed dentistry since day one. I enjoy taking care of my patients, especially when I have the opportunity to improve the health and appearance of their smiles through cosmetic dentistry, crowns and veneersRead More
I moved to Australia when I was three years old, and I grew up in north Brisbane. I earned my dental degree at Griffith University Gold Coast and graduated with the Griffith Award for Academic Excellence.
I enjoy all kinds of food cuisines, and I especially love dessert. When I’m not at work, I spend my time practicing yoga, hiking and exploring new restaurants in the area.
I have always been interested in Science, and at the University, I realised I truly desired a career in the medical field. In 2002, I graduated from the University of Western Australia in Perth. I have been working as a general dentist ever since.
I can provide my patients with a complete range of general dental services to suit their needs. I am committed to offering a high level of service, a focus on patient care and the best health outcomes for all age groups. As part of providing your dental care, I enjoy keeping up-to-date with current and new innovations and techniques in dentistry. I am a proud member of the Australian Dental Association.
I currently live in Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast with my wife, son and daughter. In my spare time, I enjoy eating American BBQ (I smoke my own meat!) and spicy foods, watching action and thriller movies, listening to r&b, rap and hip hop music and spending time with my family.
