Jeremy Gray - Owner and Principal Dentist
I graduated as BDS in 1996 at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne in the UK. I worked for a short time at a Specialist Dental Hospital specializing in Oral Surgery. After that I worked at a large group practice focusing on gaining general dental experience and skills. I was mentored there by a fantastic team and improved my skill set and it was this great experience that allowed me to buy my first practice in 2001. I ran this successful general practice in the UK for over 10 years before selling it to complete our family dream of moving to Australia. Since moving to Perth, I have worked in a number of local practices again gaining valuable expertise and forging a solid basis from which to move into Dalkeith Dental.
I am passionate about providing the best quality general practice experience for every patient. I am also proactive in keeping up to date with the most recent dental advancements, techniques and materials. I am committed to forming strong patient relationships and ensuring all patients are given all the necessary information to make informed choices and in working together to achieve outstanding aesthetic results. For the last 15 years I have been consolidating my BDS by attending a number of courses particularly relating to advanced general practice. My other main interests include reconstructive dentistry, advanced restorative dentistry and the use of varied cosmetic procedures to enhance patient’s smiles.
Outside of work, I am happily married and have 2 young children. We spend most of our free time outdoors exploring this amazing place we have moved to!
I am registered with the Dental Board of Australia as a General Dentist and an ADA member.
