Education and Experience

I have been lucky enough to call Sydney home all my life. After completing a Bachelor in Medical Science at UNSW, I went straight into dentistry at the University of Sydney, completing it with honours. I then worked in private practices in and around Sydney for seven years, giving me valuable experience in all aspects of dentistry, while also participating in volunteer programs providing dental treatment to underprivileged people in Fiji.

Whilst in general practice, I thoroughly enjoyed treating children and teenagers and seeing the positive changes in their confidence whilst they underwent their orthodontic treatment with their orthodontist. After undertaking a number of continuing education courses, I decided to pursue my interest in orthodontics by returning to university. The three year specialist orthodontic program at the University of Sydney has provided me with the skills to provide orthodontic treatment to a broad spectrum of patients, with treatments ranging from early intervention to orthognathic surgery.

Continuing Education

It is vitally important to stay abreast of best practice and new developments within the field of orthodontics, and as such I try to attend as many conferences and educational events as possible both in person and virtually. I have been certified in the use of both Invisalign and Incognito, continuing to learn from the best in both disciplines in order to provide the best possible treatments to my patients.


While not at work, I love to spend time with my wife and friends, ideally with good food involved!
I’m also especially into both listening to and playing music and have been a part of a number of
bands in and around Sydney. Sadly not nearly talented enough to quit the day job though…
