Compassionate and caring, Derek is a dentist who wants to help patients achieve healthy smiles. His philosophy is centred on listening to what people want, and what their teeth needs, and finding the best way to help them get there.
Derek obtained his Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the University of Adelaide. After moving to Newcastle, he has worked as a Public Dentist for NSW Hunter New England Health for two years before joining the team at Warner’s Bay Dental.
Patients of all ages and needs often enjoy seeing Derek for his gentle and calming manner, and patience while delivering a comfortable experience in the chair. He is passionate about all aspects of dentistry, from preventative care, restoring and retaining teeth, through to cosmetic dentistry and crowns.
In his free time, Derek enjoys cooking, running, swimming and is always looking for an excuse to get out for landscape photography.
