Dr Rose obtained his dental degree in 1993 and after eight years in general practice, completed his specialist orthodontic degree at the University of Melbourne. He also held a teaching role at the University and gives the odd lecture from time-to-time.

Dr Rose is a footy fanatic and longs for the day he and his sons have the opportunity to watch Carlton win the flag. He also enjoys jogging, working out in the gym and playing squash.
Following his graduation at the University of Sydney, Dr Rooke worked for a local dental practice and quickly realised that the orthodontist he was referring patients to had the opportunity to build rewarding patient relationships and work collaboratively with colleagues for the best patient outcomes.
A career aspiration was born and after a year working in the UK in a facial surgical unit, he returned to Australia to commence a three year orthodontic training program with the University of Queensland.
Now an experienced orthodontist, joining the team at Melbourne Orthodontic Group was a welcome opportunity to move back to his home town, and closer to family and friends. A keen sportsman – Dr Rooke has a penchant for any sports involving running around a field.
Dr Lewin completed his dental degree at Melbourne University in 1981. He practised as a general dentist for four years before returning to undertake a Masters Degree in Orthodontics. He has been in orthodontic specialist practice since 1988.
Always up with the latest developments in orthodontics, Dr Lewin regularly attends seminars and conferences both here in Australia and overseas. He is involved with supervising seminars for postgraduate students at the University of Melbourne and has taught orthodontics to dental students.
On those rare occasions when he is not working, Dr Lewin enjoys good food, motorbikes and playing with new technology.
