Dr. Dale Gerke
Prosthodontist | BDS (ADEL), BScDent(Hons), PhD, MDS, FRACDS, MRACDS(Pros)
I have almost 40 years’ experience as a dentist and over 20 years’ experience as a specialist dentist.
Honestly, there is not a lot I haven’t seen, however I do not expect you to believe me without investigating us more. So I invite you to make an appointment to discuss your problems and your wishes with us. Then we can outline a possible treatment plan to suit you. Usually there are several different recommendations that we can make.
But first let me tell you a little about myself.
I was born in South Australia and went to St Peters College. I graduated from the University of Adelaide in 1969, with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery and the following year graduated with an additional Honours degree in Oral Biology.
Following that, I commenced part-time practice and also a full time Doctor of Philosophy in Science at the Adelaide University. I graduated with a PhD after 3 years and started 4 dental practices around South Australia (opening up in two country towns which had been without dentists).
Since then, I have also acquired a Masters in Dental Surgery Prosthodontics. I obtained Membership at the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons in Prosthodontics, and to the College of Prosthetic Dentistry.
Today, I am enjoying being part of the National Dental Care team at South Terrace Dental Care. I enjoying spending my spare time with my three children and five grandchildren.
An update regarding Paul Drummond & Associates.
Dr Dale Gerke has been specialising as a Prosthodontist for about 25 years. Most of this time he worked at the St Peters Clinic, however several years ago, Dr Gerke commenced working with Dr Paul Drummond at Paul Drummond and Associates.
As a consequence of many issues, Paul Drummond and Associates (including Dr Dale Gerke) moved their practice address from Kent Town to 303 South Terrace, Adelaide. This has proven to be a wise decision. Patients find it easier and parking is more available. The new facilities are outstanding (with fully renovated surgeries).
Dr Gerke has ceased working at the St Peters Clinic and now works exclusively at South Terrace Dental Care Clinic.
At Dr Drummond’s request, Dr Gerke has successfully taken over treatment of many of Paul’s patients and everyone seems happy about the transition.
Dr Dale Gerke is also seeing all new patients who are referred for complex treatment.
