Stephen began his career in dental technology as an apprentice in his fathers business in 1978. He obtained his certificate of Dental Technology in 1981 and has since studied to upgrade to a Diploma in Dental Technology. Stephen then went on to obtain a Diploma in Dental Prosthetics in 1985 and later achieved an Advance Diploma in Dental Prosthetics in 2005.
His passion for continuing education has kept him at the forefront in the field of Dental Prosthetics. He is sought after by many dental companies and industry associations as a lecturer and demonstrator. He played a key role with TAFE NSW in the establishment of the “Implants and Overdentures” course which is recognised by the Dental Board as the required course of study to enable a Dental Prosthetist to provide implant retained dentures as part of their scope of practice. More recently, Stephen was selected by GlaxoSmithKline to be the face of Polident and the ad has proved to be a consistent performer, shown frequently in prime time.
Stephen has a commitment to his patients to provide the best quality dentures available. His mission statement is “Quality without Compromise” a statement that he and his staff take seriously. A commitment that benefits everyone that visits the Hornsby Denture Clinic
