Dr Alan received his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Melbourne.

Dr Alan loves what he does and strives to make his patients feel as comfortable as possible at every dental appointment. He believes in improving the quality of life for every patient he sees by tailoring treatments plans to suit their individual needs.

Dr Alan’s most recent achievement was completing his Primary exams through the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons. This is an extremely challenging exam that very few dentists undertake in order to achieve a deeper understanding of the science of dentistry.
