Ben really enjoys his job, and takes a lot of pride in his work. He has an interest in all aspects of dentistry, with a focus on good treatment planning and preventative dentistry.
Ben prides himself on his work, and at the same time, ensures that patients have a sound understanding of the treatment being provided, ‘which means open and honest discussion about the pros and cons of any dental work required.’
He has a friendly and relaxed personality, but is also highly motivated, and places a lot of importance on task completion and patient satisfaction.
Ben has a Conservative and careful clinical style. With an emphasis on high quality long term outcomes, and at the same time, aims to give patients an experience which is far from the daunting dental treatment patients may have had in the past.
He has many interests outside of work. He loves to exercise, and enjoys running quite a lot, having recently finished the GC Marathon.
When he gets the chance, he loves getting back to the Riverina to help out on the family farm. He will try his hand at most things, and love the outdoors.
