Tell us about yourself
I was raised in a small farm just outside of Rockhampton.
When I was very young, I would be glued to the TV watching documentaries. Ever since I’ve just had this real passion for sciences and nature.
When did you decide to become a dentist?
When leaving school it was always a big choice between engineering and dentistry. I decided to pursue dentistry when I realised I loved to care for people and working more with my hands.

I think all things worth doing are worth doing well. My patient and I are a team; we share each other’s successes.
How do you keep up to date with techniques, technology and teachings?
I’ve been keeping up with online courses, study groups and case studies.
As a dentist, what’s the best part of your day?
The best part is getting to chat with my patients, have a laugh and provide excellent dentistry.
What is the one thing you want patients to know about your work?
I’d like my patients to know that I am thorough and patient in all of my work. I undergo all my work with longevity and quality in mind. I make sure my work results in my patients being healthy and happy.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I like to go to the gym, take my mountain bike out for a ride and catching up with friends & family.
What is something people may not know about you?
