Dr Mark Stanton, Dentist, B.D.Sc.

After attending Wavell State High School, Mark embarked on a career in dentistry and graduated from the University of Queensland in1975. His first position was as a government bonded dentist at Collinsville, North Queensland. In 1977 he became a member of the teaching staff at Townsville Dental Therapy School and was involved in training dental therapists.

Dr Stanton became a staff dentist at Redcliffe Hospital and made the move to private practice in 1982, working in a busy group practice in Brisbane City. In 1984 he took over from Dr Tom Packer, who retired from the Kedron practice he had established in the late 1940’s. Dr Stanton has been proud to continue serving the dental needs of his local community. The Queensland State Government Northern Busway Development forced a relocation and a new and state of the art dental facility was completed in Kitchener Road, Kedron in November 2008.

Dr Stanton has kept pace with advances in techniques, materials and infection control throughout his career by attending post-graduate continuing education programmes and workshops, dental conferences and trade displays and maintaining membership of the Australian Dental Association and the Cadmus Dental Study Group.

Dr Stanton is married with 2 daughters. His interests include cycling, swimming, physical fitness, the great outdoors and astronomy.
