Marcus is a self-confessed ‘dentistry nerd’. Ever since he had braces as a child in Brisbane he has been fascinated by the ‘gadgetry’ and now channels this passion into ensuring the best innovations in orthodontics reach his patients.
Marcus studied dentistry at the University of Queensland and it was there that he met Kent Farmer, the other founding orthodontist of ethos. Marcus graduated in 1985 with first class honours and spent six years working as a dentist in Melbourne and Brisbane before returning to UQ to do his master’s degree in orthodontics. Marcus has served as an external examiner for post-graduate students and is involved in numerous professional and school-based committees.
With a love of ‘the great outdoors’ you might find Marcus trekking, skiing, sailing, dirt biking or rounding up cattle on his family farm.
With his wife Christine, their three teenage sons and the cattle farm to look after as well, life is never a dull moment for Marcus. Fortunately, he wouldn’t have it any other way.
