He is a member of the Australian Dental Association, Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons, Australian Society of Orthodontists, American Association of Orthodontists and the World Federation of Orthodontists. Andrew has actively been involved with professional bodies including the South Coast Division of the Australian Dental Association where he is currently President and the Australian Society of Orthodontists (NSW Branch) where he served as Treasurer for 5 years.
Andrew’s passion for orthodontics stems from the satisfaction it gives him to improve his patient’s smile, and the overall function of their teeth. He keeps pace with current orthodontic research and treatment methods and regularly attends courses and conferences. This allows him to choose the most suitable treatment approach and appliances for each patient.
Andrew is devoted to his young family but still finds time for his diverse interests that include photography, music and the pursuit of superb coffee.
