About Me

“I take a great deal of care to diligently reproduce details of colour, shape and anatomy to make sure that your restoration really is part of you. I will treat you as unique, because you are! ”

After graduating, Sid spent a year in private practice in a country town in northern Queensland and three and a half years in public and private practice in Canberra. Always up for a challenge, he pursued a master’s degree in advanced dentistry from the University of Sydney in 2015, a course that involved both clinical work and a research component, for which he undertook three systematic reviews.

Equipped with the skills to read professional dental literature critically and apply that knowledge in clinical practice, he set his sights on the University of Otago. There he gained a Doctorate in Clinical Dentistry as a Prosthodontist (Specialist) on a doctoral scholarship, undertaking research in teeth bleaching and treating complex cases according to evidence-based practice.

Following extensive training and clinical experience, Sid derives much satisfaction knowing the benefits his practice brings to the patients he serves and the community at large.

Sid enjoyed teaching all areas of removable, fixed and implant prosthodontics to undergraduate students at the University of Otago. Click Here for a list of Sid’s lectures and to see a video. His special clinical interests are removable prosthodontics (dentures), implant reconstructions, ceramic crowns and occlusion.

In the weekend, Sid enjoys adventure sports like rock climbing, skiing, motor biking and scuba diving. He also likes getting in touch with nature by riding his road bike and going on hikes with his fiancée who is a scientist.
