Dr John Michael
Maven Dental Inner West Sydney welcomed Dr John Michael to the team early in 2019. After a short stint in finance and early plans to become a pilot, John decided he wanted to become a dentist and help create beautiful, healthy smiles for his patients.
Before making the move to our Burwood based practice, Dr Michael studied his Doctor of Dental Medicine at the University of Sydney graduating in 2018. John has experience treating patients of all walks of life. He has previously practiced at the Westmead Centre for Oral Health, Nepean Hospital and the Sydney Dental Hospital. During his time at USyd he also enjoyed a placement in the rural NSW town of Ballina.
John loves building trust and fostering relationships with his patients. He is passionate about being able to truly understand what a patient wants from their treatment, assessing their motivation and working in harmony with them to achieve their dental goals.
Dr Michael is a talented dentist that has a keen interest in endodontics. In 2018, the Australian Society of endodontics awarded him the Anthony P Martin prize for Proficiency in Clinical Endodontics. He is also passionate about fixed prosthodontics (crowns bridges, and veneers) and oral surgery.
Dr Michael is constantly seeking opportunities to increase his knowledge and improve his skills in the dental industry. He has previous observed maxillofacial surgeons and specialist endodontists. As a member of the ADA, John also regularly attends conferences and courses to keep up-to-date with the latest in the dental industry.
Away from Maven Dental Inner West Sydney you’ll find John exploring Sydney’s national parks, on the pitch playing football, or searching for the perfect coffee. John co-founded a football club in Melbourne in 2013 and still helps the local team whenever he can.
