He practised as a Specialist Endodontist in Adelaide from1967- 2002 and continues to be actively involved in clinical research and teaching in the undergraduate and graduate programmes. A deep clinical interest in dental trauma and tooth resorption led to a concentration of research over the past 35 years into invasive cervical resorption and its management, and a thesis based on this research and associated endodontic studies was accepted for the senior Doctorate Degree of Dental Science of The University of Adelaide in 2001. He has 61 published works, has been a co-author in three Textbook chapters and has produced 28 teaching videos. He was made an Officer of the Order of Australia (AO) for endodontic education in 1998 and was the recipient of the Louis Grossman award of the American Association of Endodontists for research in 2000. In 2009 he received three awards for excellence in teaching; the Faculty of Health Sciences Executive Dean’s award, The Stephen Cole the Elder award and The University of Adelaide’s Vice Chancellor’s award.
