Dr Bryan Dubbeldam. After graduating from the University of Queensland in 1993, Dr Dubbeldam joined the Royal Australian Air Force. As a young dentist, this allowed him to develop a broad range of general dental skills. During his Air Force career, Dr Dubbeldam feels he was fortunate to have had the opportunity to practice around Australia and being deployed to East Timor. He left the permanent Force as Air Force's senior dentist and he remains a consultant in the Air Force Reserve. Dr Dubbeldam is skilled in all facets of general dentistry, and particularly enjoys restorative dentistry. Dr Dubbeldam is a member of the Vardiman Dental Study Club which meets regularly to discuss current developments within the profession.
When away from the practice, Dr Dubbeldam enjoys spending time with his wife and children, and is disappointed that Brisbane is too far from the snow for his favourite pastime, snow skiing.
Dr Steven Fiore. Joining the practice in January 2010 was Dr Steven Fiore. Before returning to the University of Queensland to study dentistry, Dr Fiore was a registered pharmacist for several years. During his undergraduate training, Dr Fiore received academic prizes for paediatric dentistry and periodontics. Dr Fiore has developed a relaxed manner, which is appreciated by his patients. Dr Fiore is a member of the Australian Society of Endodontology.
Dr Christine Cordery. We welcomed Dr Christine Cordery to our practice in July 2012. A 1993 graduate of the University of Melbourne, Dr Cordery was awarded prizes for highest grade point average and prosthodontics. She joined the Royal Australian Air Force upon graduation, having a distinguished military career, including overseas deployments culminating also as Air Force's senior dentist. Dr Cordery’s experience is complimented by a post-graduate degree from the University of Sydney in Conscious Sedation & Pain Control and is endorsed as a practitioner in this area by the Dental Board of Australia. Dr Cordery is a member of the Australian Society of Dental Anaesthesiology.
