Associate at Hastings Family Dental Care
James was born in Melbourne and studied at the University of Melbourne. He graduated with Honours and was awarded the Mervyn Townsend Prize for Orthodontics.
Before joining the practice, James provided dental treatment at the Royal Dental Hospital Melbourne and at various community health centres across Victoria. He joined Hastings Family Dental Care in February 2010.
James has visited Cambodia twice as a volunteer providing dental treatment for disadvantaged children. He and his nurse Liz were granted this opportunity through the M'Lop Tapang organisation and found it to be a most rewarding experience. Toothbrushes and toothpastes were generously donated for the Cambodian children from a local school near Hastings Family Dental Care.
James has experience in all fields of dentistry, with a special interest in preventive dentistry. When he's not in the surgery, he enjoys playing the guitar and is a keen soccer fan.
James is currently completing a PhD at the University of Melbourne that focuses on tooth remineralisation and the prevention of tooth decay. Due to his study commitments he is working one day a week though very much enjoys being part of the Hastings Family Dental Care team.
