Becoming a Dentist

Cameron was born and raised in Newcastle, and his wife is from the Hunter Valley. He spent the first five years after graduating working in Newcastle and the Hunter Valley, before moving to Sydney. “My wife and I decided to move back to Newcastle to be closer to family, and we believe it will be a better place to raise our two boys.”

Cameron has always been interested in science, health, technology and caring professions, naturally dentistry married these interests. One of the most fulfilling aspects of being a dentist for Cameron is developing long-term relationships with patients. It’s rewarding for him to see patients bring their families in and watch them grow up over time.

Education & Professional Development

In 2010, Dr Cameron earned a Bachelor of Oral Health in Dental Science and a Graduate Diploma in Dentistry from Griffith University on the Gold Coast. He regularly takes continuing education, and completed the Brener Implant Institute Master Clinician’s programme in 2017. He was invited back to assist teaching the course in 2019. He has also completed All-on-4/full arch training at the Brener Institute.

Outside the Practice
