The second new member of our Westfund Dental team is general dental practitioner (GDP or dentist) Michael Doyle.
Michael has also arrived at our Dental Care Centre very well-travelled, coming to Lithgow from Ireland via the Northern Territory.
“My most recent job before coming to Lithgow was as a dentist on Groote Eylandt in the Northern Territory, however this was only short term as part of a remote area health care plan,” said Michael.
“Before that, I worked full time as a dentist in Dublin, Ireland,” he said.
Michael commenced his role with Westfund in May and since then has enjoyed getting to know the area.
“My favourite thing about living in Lithgow is the people. They’re friendly, welcoming and enjoy a laugh,” he said.
Positive patient outcomes are a priority for Michael.
“With dentistry, you see the results of your work right in front of you,” said Michael.
“It’s rewarding when you look at your work and know you’ve done a good job,” he said.
Michael is happy to share his top tip for balancing a busy lifestyle with maintaining good oral health.
Try to plan ahead. Taking time to organise good, filling healthy meals will cut down on the need for those high sugar snacks to get you through the day.
“It’s the time spent snacking on these sugary foods/drinks which causes a lot damage to your teeth” he said.
Drop in and see Michael at our Dental Care Centre at 120 Main Street Lithgow.
