Veterinary Dentist – Director
I started my veterinary career in mixed practice at the Roma Veterinary Clinic in 1997. Here I was exposed to a wide range of things, not least of which dental procedures. Having received minimal formal training in any dentistry whilst at university, these initial experiences with dentistry were daunting.
I moved onto the Mudgeeraba Animal Hospital in 1997, where my work revolved mostly around small animals. Dentistry was a part of this practice, however over the ensuing years it became a much larger part, and my interest in it grew.
In 2000 I started exploring more training in small animal dentistry and began working with Dr Gary Wilson. After obtaining my membership in Veterinary Dentistry in 2004, dentistry became a much bigger focus of my career. In 2006 I formally joined Dr Wilson, and have since then exclusively worked in dental referral practice as Advanced Animal Dentistry. In 2018 Dr Wilson retired and I am now partnered with another wonderful Veterinary Dentist, Dr Rebecca Tucker.
Advanced Animal Dentistry covers all dental and oral surgery referral work in south-east Queensland.
With my lovely wife I have 2 young daughters who have become a very important part of my life, nearly more so than dentistry and my two cats, Franklin and Mabel.
