Over many years it has been a privilege for Michael to be involved in the journeys of many patients towards a spectacular, confident and comfortable smile. Many of whom had all but given up on being able to enjoy what many take for granted — the confidence and self-esteem linked to a smile to be proud of. This has been the greatest joy of Dr Michael’s career and what led him to pursue and focus on a particular interest in All on Implants™/All-on-X solutions for patients who needed that positive change in their lives.
To provide the highest level of care, Dr Michael has worked with and learned from specialist prosthodontists, oral surgeons and dental technicians regarding All on Implants™/All-on-X solutions. He has trained in Australia and internationally with specialists from the All on Implants™ Malo Clinic from Portugal, the creators behind the All on Implants™ concept and its development. He enjoys teaching the All on Implants™ concepts and techniques to other dentists and loves continuing professional development. Michael believes strongly in continuing education and currently holds memberships with the following associations:
- Associate member of The Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons
- American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry
- Academy of General Dentistry
- Australian Prosthodontic association
- American Prosthodontic association
- International Team for Implantology (ITI)
- Several continuing education groups, including:
o GIDE Dental education
o Spear Dental Education
o Pankey Dental institute
o Dawson Academy
Dr Michael graduated from The University of Melbourne in 2005. He met his wife in their first year of dental school. They have three children together, aged seven, four and two. He spent his first few years after graduation with The Australian Army, during which he was involved in regional and remote community assistance programs. He has recorded several audiobooks for Vision Australia as a volunteer.
In his spare time, Michael loves to play board games with friends and family, build LEGO with his children and woodworking.
I love being a part of my patient’s journey towards a spectacular, confident and comfortable smile
