Ben graduated from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne in the UK in 2000 and joined the team in early 2016. His great passion in dentistry is for treating anxious children and adults and has been the focus of his career. He is highly experienced at using inhalational and intravenous sedation techniques and gained a Diploma in Conscious Sedation in Dentistry from the University of Newcastle (UK). He hopes to begin using this skill and experience soon in Melbourne. Bens' aim is to continue providing good quality family dentistry in a relaxed and calm environment. Ben also works at Melbourne University in a teaching capacity guiding dental students through their early clinical years.

Outside of dentistry Ben particularly enjoys travel and is lucky enough to have visited many parts of the world including South America, Europe, the Himalayas, South East Asia, India, the Middle East and Africa. He is also proud to have carried out volunteer dental work in Eastern Europe and the Caribbean. His other interests include photography, the arts, swimming, reading, walking, property renovation and skiing. Ben moved to Melbourne with his wife and his two young daughters and are incredibly excited to have begun exploring beautiful Victoria and beyond.

Dear Patients,

In accordance with the recent announcement of the decreased restrictions associated with the Coronavirus outbreak, general dental practice being an essential service will remain open for business as all  restrictions have now been lifted.   

We are screening all patients for symptoms who attend our clinic. Along with our routine high standard infection-control protocols, we will be implementing further precautions among which are single-use gowns for treating staff.

We ask that all of our patients assist us in keeping Williams Landing Dental Clinic Coronavirus-free by not attending the clinic if you are suffering any symptoms which may be associated with the Coronavirus or if you are in self isolation due to risk of contact with the virus.

So that we can ensure your appointments are organised to be as safe for you as well as complying with our government’s strict social distancing regulations, we ask that you please call the clinic from your car to inform us that you are here.

Although we will always try to be on time for your appointments, in instances where this is not possible and there may be a slight wait, we ask that you remain waiting in the car until we call to let you know that we are ready for you to come up. We would also kindly ask that you minimise the amount of people you bring with you to your appointment to reduce the amount of traffic through the clinic.

Our new policies and procedures do take time and have been put in place to minimise the risks to our patients, their families and our staff so please be patient and kind during this period.

Please feel free to contact the clinic with any queries you may have with the recent change.

We thank you again for your patience and we look forward to seeing you all soon.


Kind regards,

The Team at Williams Landing Dental Clinic
