I completed high school in Charles Campbell Secondary School in north-east suburbs of Adelaide. I was one of only two people to gain entry into the Bachelor of Dental Surgery course in the Adelaide University directly from year 12 in 1995.
 
After completing the dental course I worked in Whyalla in 2000 and 2001. Most country areas like Whyalla had very limited access to dental specialists and in addition to that I had no permanent senior dentist in the practice. As a result I had to learn to deal with all types of dental problems and needs the patients presented with. This proved to be a very busy and educational time for me.
 
Upon my return to Adelaide I was employed in Paralowie Dental Service and have been there since 2002. My wife and I have been the owners of the practice since Dec 2002. In the meantime our family had expanded with the arrivals of our daughter Lucy (2004) and son Micah (2007).
 
I particularly enjoy the aesthetic side of dentistry and I continually explore using different and newer materials and techniques to recreate the natural form, function and appearance of my patient’s teeth.
