Who are Rob and Ros really?
Rob and Ros are married and raising their young family of three in Shepparton. Rob enjoys a game of golf and social tennis. He closely follows the Western Bulldogs in the AFL. Ros loves a game of netball and is taking delight in motherhood.
Since they met at dental school, Ros and Rob’s career paths have been very similar and therefore they have developed a like-minded patient treatment philosophy. For the first time, patients of the Goulburn Valley have resident orthodontic specialists. Ros and Rob are up to date with the latest orthodontic techniques and technologies, and are committed to providing excellent and progressive treatment to the community. Rob had orthodontic treatment as a teenager, and Ros as an adult. Most importantly they both understand not only the improvements in health and function that orthodontics can achieve, but more importantly the gains in self esteem that can be achieved in people of any age. They really enjoy getting to know their patients and have some fun along the way.
