He has over nine years of experience within the dental industry, working in both private and public dental settings as well as both metropolitan and rural locations.
Paul was born and raised in South Western Sydney, attending Hurlstone Agricultural High School. Both his parents live and work in the area. In a wonderful stroke of fate, as a young student, Paul came to Family Orthodontics Liverpool for clinical placement. During that time Dr Tim Mew Sum encouraged him to study dentistry and orthodontics. His experience at Family Orthodontics Liverpool was excellent and Paul always kept this advice in the back of his mind. So it could be said that his coming to work at Family Orthodontics Liverpool is coming full circle!
Paul is passionate about orthodontics and loves to help create beautiful new smiles for his patients. He has a wonderful way with patients and strives to provide a personalised approach to ensure that every patient feels heard, welcome and comfortable during their treatment.
After enjoying his time in Melbourne, Paul is excited to enjoy his profession and is thrilled to be a part of the Family Orthodontics team.
