At FDS we don’t have any in-house hygienists – this is a clinical choice to try to enhance a team approach to patient care with referring practices – bringing their hygiene cells back into the supportive care role as soon as possible. We endeavour to provide regular clinical updates on patient progress – however – you are always welcome to contact our team at any time for further patient treatment details.
FDS “a family affair” a traditional model that still has market strength
John was approached to provide an article to BITE magazine for their December 2021 edition. The brief was ‘to encourage younger clinicians as they launch into their dental careers’. In a time of Covid turmoil and corporate rationalization of the dental world – the article is a refreshingly positive look at what can be a wonderful rewarding profession providing a lifetime of learning, laughter and community. Search for it online – or visit our FDS ‘blog feed’ on our Web site https://www.foundationdental.com.au
In Summary : Relationships First – Listen and Respect
As mentioned in the article, FDS is now more than a “one man show” – growing to encompass seven dental specialists with a further twenty five clinical and administrative support staff. All seven of the ‘dental clan’ pictured are involved with the support of the family business. Between them they have eight dental degrees – with another two underway….and yes…. occasionally(?) the conversation around the table does swing back to dentistry……..
In his “spare time” John also ‘gives back’ as an Adjunct Senior Lecturer – on the academic staff at Griffith University.
And in October 2022 – the newest ‘Roy Carrigy’ was born (to James and Tas – congratulations !) …… chances he will choose dentistry ………currently assessed as a 98.3% probability !
