Dr. Robert Dewhurst
Dentist | B.D.S. (Syd) Dip Clin Dent (Implants)
Born and raised in Armidale, I chose to study dentistry at the University of Sydney, where I completed a Bachelor of Dental Surgery and a Diploma of Clinical Dentistry (Implants). Since then, I have grown in passion for exploring the way teeth and oral structures relate to overall body well being.
This passion has taken me all over the world, pursuing what I see as a lifelong journey of finding answers. I have studied the latest philosophies and research on sleep medicine, headaches, jaw joint pain and dysfunction, and orthodontics and facial development, as well as reconstructive dentistry and Implants.
Today, I am a credited senior lecturer of the International Association of Orthodontics and am an active member in numerous associations and societies, as well as practicing dentistry with the National Dental Care team.
I love spending my spare time with my four sons, and applying my desire for perfection to a love of archery.

Dentist | DDS
I have completed many post graduate courses and have wide experience in general dentistry with a particular interest in oral surgery and implants. Before migrating to Australia and completing my Australian registration requirements, I worked in my own practice for 14 years. I have an interest in soccer and have two children. I look forward to meeting new patients and experiencing my first Armidale winter!
Dental Therapist | Dip Dent Th, Grad Dip OHP
I have been working as a Dental Therapist since 1980, and have enjoyed every part. I worked in the Hunter New England Area Health Service and Aboriginal Medical Service in Armidale, before joining the National Dental Care team at Dewhurst Dental Practice in 2008.
Since then, I have flourished in my role as their Dental Therapist and am heavily involved in the treatment of early orthodontic intervention. I am highly trained in the specialty of Oral Facial Myology, and have been seeing amazing results with my unique and gentle treatments.
I really enjoy managing children’s fears of dentistry and successfully turning them into happy cooperative patients.
I love my sports, especially when my daughter and son play. I also love to read, but spending time with my family is definitely my favourite hobby!
