Simon is Adelaide born and bred. He gained his dental qualifications from the University of Adelaide in 2012 and seeking a sea-change he then moved to Shepparton, Victoria to cut his teeth in general dentistry. He worked for several years in a bustling dental practice as well as teaching for the undergraduate dentists at the University of Melbourne.
Simon returned to Adelaide shortly before moving the other side of the world to begin his specialist training at King’s College London in the UK. He completed his postgraduate training and was admitted to the Royal College of Dental Surgeons in Edinburgh. Upon returning home to Adelaide, Simon was accepted as an Australian-Accredited Specialist Orthodontist with AHPRA. He now works in partnership with his father - Dr Andrew Toms - as Adelaide's only father/son team in orthodontic practice.
Simon is a sitting member of the ASOFRE (Australian Society of Orthodontists Foundation for Research and Eduction) committee.
Simon embraces new technology and uses the latest in evidence-based treatment and techniques. Simon has experience working with all ages and his compassionate and patient approach makes him an ideal choice for those with dental anxiety or those who may have social or communicative difficulties. He works at our surgeries in North Adelaide, Marion, Broken Hill, Roxby Downs and Alice Springs.
Outside of orthodontics, Simon has a great love of football, cricket, winemaking, travelling and spending weekends with his wife and two Labradoodles – Scout and Willow.
