Dr Jeremy Rourke is part of a family of dentists with his father, brother, cousin and nephew also being dentists. He won the University of Sydney Dental Alumni prize for being the top student in his year and graduated with Honours in 1971. He has been a Registered dentist for over 40 years. During that time he has created a few “firsts” to become a leader in the field of Cosmetic Dentistry. Dr Rourke believes that the best dental care involves a minimum of tooth substance loss and so he provides a form of conservative dentistry now called Minimal Intervention Dentistry to minimise the drilling and keep his patients’ costs to a minimum.
