Dr Tony Goswell
Owner / Principal Dentist

Even from an early age, Dr Tony Goswell has been familiar with the world of dentistry. With an uncle and several family friends as dentists and mentors, it wasn’t long before he came to realise that a career in dentistry would give him the opportunity to do what he most enjoyed – meeting and helping other people. This combined neatly with his other love of working with his hands; the intricacies of dental work built upon the foundational skills he learned as a young boy avidly building models of all shapes and sizes.
