In 2005, Patrick Barrett-Lennard completed a Certificate 3 in Dental Technology, before completing an Advanced Diploma of Dental Prosthetics at the Central Institute Of Technology in Perth, in 2012 and also an Implant Retained Overdenture Course at RMIT in 2018.

For 12 years, Patrick was employed by and managed one of the largest dental prosthetic clinics and laboratories in Perth. His passion for designing natural-looking prosthetics free of imperfections, drove him to establish his very own dental laboratory, Dental Engineering in 2014. Owning and running his own laboratory has allowed Patrick to maintain complete control over every product he manufactures, from the initial model pouring stage right to the final polishing process.

Since opening Dental Engineering, Patrick has worked with many prosthodontists and high-profile dentists in Perth, including Dr Norcross. He has expanded his skillset and equipment to be able to provide a wide range of products including milled titanium implant bars and bridges (also known as immediate final bridges).

Choosing an Implant Dentist

Did you know there’s no such thing as an implant dentist? There are dentists and specialists, that’s it.

Skilled and experienced general dentists who practice implant dentistry have no recognised title in Australia. That’s why it’s important to choose a dentist you trust and feel comfortable with, when it comes to treatment. We recommend checking for these trust factors in a dentist:

 

  • Qualifications
  • Experience of Dentist (performing surgery & placing implants)
  • Experience of Prosthetist (designing implants)
  • Accreditation and affiliations
  • Implant system quality
  • Affordability and payment plans
  • Sedation options
  • Infection control measures
  • Technology
  • Aftercare
  • Accessibility

Read our blog on How to Choose the Right Dentist for your Dental Implants.

Dr David Norcross is a general dentist who has dedicated his career to placing dental implants, and has completed extensive training over the past 13 years. He places over 300 dental implants each year at our dedicated dental implant clinics in Kelmscott and East Vic Park.
