He is an Australian Citizen, having lived and worked here since 2004.
In 2017, Michael sat and passed the Final Examinations of the Royal College of Australasian Dental Surgeons and was admitted to Fellowship.
Michael enjoys all aspects of general dentistry and believes in a strong focus on accurate diagnosis and an excellent standard of care for every patient. He is particularly interested in endodontics (root canal therapy), aesthetic bonded tooth coloured restorations, and dentures, crowns & implant based restorations.
Over the years he has devoted considerable time to helping nervous patients to deal with anxiety when visiting the dentist, and finds great reward in helping anxious patients to overcome their fears and become dentally healthy again at their own pace.
Michael is a clinical demonstrator at the University of Melbourne, teaching final year graduate students in the Doctor of Dental Surgery degree programme. He regularly attends continuing professional development courses to keep up to date on current techniques and technology and is a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons and a member of the Australian Dental Association. He has also mentored through the ADA Victorian Branch Mentoring Program.
Michael studies French in his spare time and has been playing guitar for the best part of 25 years. He loves cooking and has many years of martial arts experience, having received his black belt in Hapkido in 2011.
