"I consider the well-being of my patients my first and foremost priority. I appreciate the trust my patients place in me as their practitioner and endeavour to provide evidence-based scientific advice, while taking every effort to ensure that the treatment is carried out in a calm and relaxing manner."

Nick is attentive to his patients needs and is committed to providing uncompromising quality of care. He has practiced in Russia, India and Dubai before moving to Australia in 2011. He is fluent in Russian and enjoys a good chat about travel and music.

On weekends he enjoys spending time with his young family, spoiling his two daughters, hoping someday when he is senile they will not mind their old man.

Jimmy is passionate about early and adult orthodontics, undergoing regular continuing education courses to stay up to date with the latest knowledge. He has a gentle approach towards his patients and loves seeing them happy with the amazing smiles he creates. Jimmy has over 15 years of experience in orthodontics, with over 10 years in private practice in Australia. He speaks fluent English, Russian and Hindi, and has worked in diverse places, including Lismore and Casino in the Northern Rivers of NSW.

Music is another of Jimmy’s passions and whilst you’re in his care you will definitely hear some of his favourite tunes. He has a wonderful wife who is a passionate school teacher and two beautiful children. On weekends you will find him riding his motorbike, stand up paddle boarding and learning how to fish.
