Dr Luke Symons BDSc
For 15 years I have worked with the outstanding team at Fitzroy St Dental and am now proud to take on the Principal Dentist role. Graduating from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Dental Science in 1999, it didn’t take me long to find my place here. Dentistry is a very important aspect of overall well-being and I take great pride in providing treatment that suits the individual. I understand that coming to the dentist can be nerve racking and I do my very best to put my patients at ease. While check ups and cleaning are vital, it is the restoration of complex cases where my passion lies. Full mouth rehabilitation, including all aspects of implant dentistry excites me. I like to take on tough challenges that have some dentists running for the hills.
Enough on teeth, I love a big jew fish on the end of my line and everything that comes with country living. I look forward to my two children growing up in the close knit local community and the people I will meet along the way. Remember, even Batman needs to brush his teeth!
Dr Julie Austin BDSc
I graduated from the University of Queensland’s Dental School in 1983. Before joining Fitzroy St Dental, I spent 4 years in private practice in Kyogle, followed by 3 years as Dentist in charge of the Public Dental Clinic attached to Grafton Base Hospital. I have now been at Fitzroy St Dental continually since 1990 both as an employee and former partner. I like to apply a holistic approach to dentistry where I feel it is very important to choose the appropriate dental care, level of intervention and technology relevant to the person’s age, economic status and general health which I believe is so undervalued among dentists. I have experience in treating patients of all ages with a general affinity to addressing the needs of disabled and older patients.
The Clarence Valley has played an important part in my family life where my husband Wayne Pearson and our now adult girls have all felt the strength of this local community. I also have a loving interest in my dogs, travel and volunteering and I am determined to learn to play a better game of bridge.
