Anthony grew up in the Penrith area, attending school at Nepean High where he was captain of the school rugby league and basketball teams. He studied at the University of Sydney, graduating as the top Honours student in Dentistry in 1977. After working in advanced restorative practices in the Sydney CBD for a few years, Anthony returned to Penrith to open this practice in 1981.
Anthony has always been committed to providing the highest standard of clinical dentistry, with an emphasis on ethical patient care. In recognition of his excellence in dental practice, in 1999 Anthony was invited to become a fellow of both the International College of Dentists and the Pierre Fauchard Academy. Fellowship in either of these societies is an honour bestowed upon a respected dentist by the international dental community.
