Dr David grew up on a farm on the Darling Downs and then moved to Cairns to study his Bachelor of Dental Surgery at James Cook University – obtaining the Henry Schein Halas Award for Clinical Excellence for the graduating class of 2014.
Dr David and his wife Dr Stephanie (also a dentist) then worked with QLD Health throughout Central Western QLD, the Darling Downs and South Burnett. He managed and worked in various rural and remote clinics and supervised final year Griffith and James Cook University dental students on clinical outplacement.
Dr David and his family then moved to Melbourne, where Stephanie completed post-graduate study to become a Specialist Paediatric Dentist through the University of Melbourne.
David, Stephanie, Sofia (Their beautiful 3 year old daughter) and their 2nd baby girl (expected November 2021) have decided to make the move back to QLD and look very much forward to making the Gold Coast their home. Along with Dr David joining the lovely BE Dental team, Dr Stephanie plans to practice with a local Specialist Paediatric Dental clinic on the Gold Coast too.
Dr David has a particular interest in ensuring patient comfort and care are brought into all aspects of his practice. He prides himself in delivering long term quality dental work. He has a strong belief in using high quality dental care to improve overall health, function, aesthetics and self-esteem.
Outside of work Dr David loves spending quality time with his family – particularly all things outdoors including beach time, exploring national parks and camping.
