Having gained his specialty qualification (FRACDS (OMS) in 2009, after completing his training in Victoria, Richard has located with his wife and four young children to the coastal region of the Bellarine Peninsula. It was through his exposure to the Geelong area during specialist training in 2006 that Richard entertained the vision to return to the area and participate in the development of the oral and maxillofacial speciality within the region. As an enthusiastic and driven practitioner he is focused on the whole patient experience and has fostered a work environment that aims to engage the patient, their family and their concern along with the treatment goals requested by the referring practitioner.
