The exact moment that I decided I wanted to become a dentist:
I failed my medical school entrance exams…. (JOKING!) No, I never really had a ‘moment’ to be honest. Dentistry was one of a few options; and I just consider myself so lucky to have ended up enjoying the job as much as I do.
 
What I love most about my job:
It would have to be the patients. At the end of the day, this is a people business; and I feel we are blessed to be able to connect with so many wonderful people day in, day out. We are also fortunate to be able to see our patients in times of health for check-ups etc. So we, therefore, get to build long-lasting relationships that are founded on mutual trust and respect. It may sound clichéd, but we don’t just treat teeth: we treat people.
 
My favourite type of dental treatment:
A single crown preparation on a tooth. You start with a broken tooth, you then have to repair it with a core filling, before crafting an idealised version of the preparation by hand. Kind of like sculpting from a block of marble (in my mind at least!)
 
It’s a true objective test of manual skill; and as you do it you have to factor in these other biologic, geometric, and bio-mechanical considerations, in real-time. You also want every crown to be better than the preceding one, so it’s like a little test every time: to keep me in check!
 
If I wasn’t a dentist, I would be:
A teacher most likely.
 
My favourite thing to do on the Gold Coast in my spare time: 
I’m embarrassed to admit that only very recently have I started to explore the Gold Coast hinterland properly. So for the past few weeks, I have been taking myself off for pretty hectic cycles every couple of days. But the scenery IS jaw-dropping, and you’ve always got the downhills to look forward to on the way home!
