Graduating from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 1981, Dr Swart set off across the globe to learn from leading dentists in London (1981-82) and the Netherlands (1982-88). Arriving back in Sydney in 1988, Dr Swart established the West Pymble Dental Surgery where he has successfully practised for three decades.

Although a highly skilled and experienced dentist, Dr Swart recognises that constantly seeking opportunities to learn is important for himself and his patients. A member of the AOS Periodontal Society, Dr Swart is continuing his learning with advanced periodontal regenerative techniques in Germany. Also a graduate of the Brenner Institute of Implant Surgery in Sydney, he has a keen interest in dental implant surgery along with all aspects of general dentistry. Dr Swart is also an active member of the Australia Dental Association.

When he is not at West Pymble Dental Surgery, Dr Swart loves spending time with his family, watching foreign films, and travelling. He is also committed to keeping fit, regularly playing tennis and doing yoga in his spare time.

He is married and has two adult children; his daughter manages the surgery, and his son is a doctor.
