Dr Greg (Dugid)
Look, we know you’ll come see Dr Greg under the guise of your “dental visit”, but just on the down-low, we get you’re really here to have a chat (wink, wink).
Why we love Dr Greg: If a fear of seeing the dentist is keeping you away, now’s the time you let that go with a deep yogi exhale, because Dr Greg will help you build a bridge – and get over your dental fears, whatever they are. With a warm, relaxed vibe (which we guess comes from all that time spent in the country), we think you’ll feel how we do when you meet him, like this guy could make me laugh – at the dentist!
His back story:
While Dr Greg may have been led to dentistry through a quirky twist of academic fate, we think he’s probably quite happy how things turned out. Any initial reservations about his career choice were cast aside over four decades ago when he discovered ‘this dentistry thing is alright!’. Influenced by his experiences of working with dental specialists, and a genuine desire to educate people beyond the mindset I only do dental when I absolutely, positively need it, Dr Greg is what we call a stayer.
What makes Dr Greg tick?
I have always appreciated the people aspect of dentistry. In fact, creating connections with patients has been a huge part of my learning as a dentist. When I look back at how I’ve evolved since starting out, I’ve come a long way, and I feel this is mirrored by changes in dentistry over the same period. There’s a much greater focus on treating patients as people. This is certainly consistent with the way things are done at Dental as Anything – and I’m onboard with that!
