"We have always had patients from Mudgee. Two of them became valued staff members prior to moving back and having families. We still catch up with them. We also have lots of patients who became friends.
Our links to the dentists in the area has been long standing. When I was a general dentist in Warren, we had a meeting at Mudgee hospital that was very eventful, there was a fire in the hospital that day. At the end of the day there was a barbeque at Les Griffin's (Griffo's) house. I have patients from Robert Pisto, Mike Moran, Paul Crombie, Reza and the Mudgee dental clinic.
I've had a long journey, becoming a specialist orthodontist, continuing reseach and teaching. I have been appointed Associate Professor at CSU.
Our practice has been full time in this region for over 50 years. In that time Mudgee has had dentists such as Drs Neville and Hay doing some orthodontics. Orthodontists Ken Marshall, Geoff Morell and Leslie Short have all practiced in Mudgee. All have come and gone. When Leslie Short left we took over all her patients. We still are treating Mudgee-Gulgong orthodontic patients."
