Dr Nick Playfair
Batemans Bay Orthodontics welcomed lead orthodontist Dr Nick Playfair to the practice in 2015. Dr Playfair originally graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 2002 (NZ) and spent the first 10 years of his career working as a general dentist in both public and private sectors across Queensland and New South Wales. Following this, he completed his orthodontic residency in Canada, and in 2013 had received his Master of Science (Orthodontics) and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada Orthodontics.
In his role as an orthodontist, Dr Playfair is passionate about being able to help improve his patients' confidence by creating beautiful smiles. While experienced across many facets of dentistry, he holds particular interests in non-extraction orthodontics and understanding the effects teeth have on the way a face looks.
Dr Playfair is continually furthering his skills and knowledge by regularly attending orthodontic events and conferences across Australia and America. Additionally, he is a member of the Australian Dental Association and the American Association of Orthodontics.
Away from Batemans Bay Orthodontics, Dr Playfair enjoys good food, long walks, and spending time with family.
