Robert graduated from Otago University in 1976 and commenced private practice in Henderson in 1977. In 1988 he completed the inaugural distance teaching programme for the Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Dentistry and Restorative Dentistry. He then developed Lincoln Dental Centre into one of the leading family dental practices in New Zealand.
After 40 years of practicing in Henderson, Robert incorporated Lincoln Dental Centre with McIntosh Dental in early 2018.
The joy he brings to people by restoring their smiles and oral function makes his day – every day.
Outside of dentistry, Robert enjoys sailing, especially exploring the coast of New Zealand with all its offshore islands. This has become even more enjoyable when sharing the experience with his grandchildren.
