Principal Dentist

I graduated from Dentistry at The University of Melbourne in 1997. My first boss, Dr Paul Birch, taught me what it took to be a great dentist. I acquired a love of dentistry, was driven to quench my thirst for knowledge and was guided through the infancy of my career by a great mentor and friend.

I travelled the world for 5 years. I enjoyed further study in many aspects of dentistry and improved the practical application of my knowledge and overall level of care I was able to deliver for each of my patients.

In 2002 I joined Dr Jack Borowski in the Carnegie and Sunshine Dental Groups. Jack already had over 25 years’ experience and made my transition to running a business easy. We remained partners for over 15 years. We were so busy, we grew both practices prior to selling the Sunshine Dental Group in 2014 and consolidated our efforts at a new purpose built practice in Carnegie. I am really proud of the new Carnegie Dental Group.

I particularly enjoy building mouths. For some patients it’s a renovation, for others it’s a rebuild. I love changing people’s mindset about their mouth, making them want to smile, and motivating them to care about their dental health.

When a new patient walks in I don’t know what dental problems they have, I don’t know what their mouth looks like, but I know I can provide them with options to rectify their issues. I know I can help them.

With over 20 years’ experience under my belt, on a daily basis I enjoy catching up with patients who have become my friends.
