I find it deeply satisfying to enable patient to be able to not only function well with respect to their chewing and speech, but also to maximise their facial aesthetics and consequently self esteem.
I am facinated with facial structure and form and have a great interest in facial disproportion and also the ageing face. I follow and practice the latest advances in aesthetics and applauds the fact that such treatments are becoming far more accepted.
I am married and have 3 teenage children. I love cooking and entertaining, but also being at rottnest island off the coast of Perth where I can swim and admire the wildlife and nature. I support Telethon and the RFDS as I feel a passion for the outback, as a legacy of my father who was a flying doctor in the northwest in the 1960’s
