  • Introducing Tristan, our latest recruit to the reception team

    Introducing Tristan, our latest recruit to the reception team

    Tristan joined the team at Modern Dentistry this year. He works on a part-time basis juggling his time at the practice with his university studies. Tris has just completed his third year of a five year Arts/Law degree at ANU. He emigrated from the UK with us at the beginning of 2012 and after initially struggling with the heat of a Canberra summer has now settled in well to Australian life! Tris has replaced his brother Nick, who had similarly worked on reception whilst completing his Masters of Law at ANU, but who has now returned to the UK to complete a three year contract as a lawyer with a London law firm. It is great having another family member in the team although I’m sure the rest of the team at Modern Dentistry must feel as if we are taking over! Georgia, Tristan’s twin sister, is a part-time dental assistant for her father Tony too!

    Wings over Whales - the highlight of Tony's year!

    Recently Tony took time away from the surgery for a break up on the Sunshine Coast and seized the opportunity to book a flying lesson and get back behind the controls of an Evektor Sportstar light aircraft . Already floating on Cloud 9 because I had given him the go-ahead to head off to the airfield for a few hours, he then couldn’t believe his luck when he got to fly above a mother humpback whale with her calf. It’s experiences like that that remind us how lucky we are to be living in Australia!

  • Saving a knocked out tooth

    Saving a knocked out tooth

    A vast number of teeth are knocked out every year. Both adults and children are at risk. With proper emergency action, a tooth that has been entirely knocked out of its socket often can be successfully replanted and last for years. Because of this, it is important to be prepared and know what to do if this happens to you or someone with you.
