A Brisbane native, Tom hails from the Wynnum-Manly region. After completing high school he studied both undergraduate and postgraduate programs at the Queensland University of Technology. Following these studies Tom completed his graduate degree in Dentistry from Griffith University on the Gold Coast.
While Tom enjoys all aspects of dentistry his favourite part of the job is talking with patients throughout the course of their treatment to put them at ease. He believes in providing patients with all their treatment options, and generally advises minimally-invasive conservative dentistry.
Outside of the practice, Tom is an avid computer gamer and reader of politics and fantasy. Otherwise he can be found spending time with his girlfriend and two dogs.

A people person, Chris gets a lot of joy from making a visit to the dentist an enjoyable experience for his patients. When he’s not at the practice, Chris enjoys taking the surfboards up to the Sunshine Coast.
