Dr Chris Bate
BChD MJDF RCS (Eng)
Dr Chris graduated from the University of Leeds in 2011, after which he also studied to become a member of the Royal College of Surgeons of England and gained experience working in oral surgery and orthodontics before moving to Australia in 2013. In Australia, Chris spent 6 months in community dentistry in Melbourne before making the move into private dentistry.
Dr Chris has a down-to-earth, friendly and relaxed attitude to dentistry, believing that the key to good treatment is helping each individual patient to understand their teeth and mouth in a way they never have before. It is his firm belief that every patient deserves honesty, clarity and fairness, and from these foundations great dentistry happens.
Chris has special interest in treating anxious patients, helping them to grow in confidence and work through the issues that may cause them to shy away from treatment.
Dr Chris has a special interest in orthodontics and teeth straightening, and is currently enrolled in a postgraduate diploma for this. He is also studying for a postgraduate qualification in dental implants, helping him to provide the best options for tooth replacement.
Outside of work, Chris is a keen musician and is part of an acapella singing group, regularly competing in contests around Australia. He is adventurous with a passion for hiking, and loves to travel and explore new places, sometimes with the aid of his pilot's license.
