Oral Medicine Specialist Sunshine Coast North, QLD

With these qualifications Simon holds dual registration with the Australian Dental Board as a registered specialist in Oral Medicine as well as a registered specialist in Oral Pathology.
Simon has a passion for teaching and is a sought-after speaker for local Brisbane study clubs. He also has a heart for those less fortunate and has been involved in programs in both East Timor and Cambodia, encouraging and mentoring local clinicians.
The importance of regular oral examinations cannot be over emphasised as there are a number of common conditions that are classified as “potentially malignant”. You may not experience any pain, but any changes in the mouth that don’t resolve within a few days should be investigated by an Oral Medicine specialist to rule out any more sinister developments.
If your dentist is concerned about any changes in your mouth, then please book an appointment with us as soon as possible. Time is of the essence when dealing with any potentially malignant (pre-cancerous) issues in the mouth.
We can help you with:
- Diagnosis of lesions or tissue changes in the mouth.
- Excisional or Incisional biopsies.
- Long-term management of chronic concerns – e.g. Dry Mouth Syndrome, HIV complications, Mucocutaneous Disorders (e.g. Lichen Planus / Lichenoid Drug Reactions) or adverse medication issues.
