Ben’s aim is to provide excellent family dentistry in a relaxed and calm environment. As well as working in general practice in the UK and Australia he has also worked in specialist sedation clinics, taught dental students at the University of Melbourne and was an examiner for the Australian Dental Council.
Outside of dentistry Ben enjoys travel and has visited many parts of the world including South America, Europe, the Himalayas, South East Asia, India, the Middle East and Africa.
