Having spent eight years working at WA’s largest regional dental center in Bunbury, Ernie was trained by the best in cosmetic and restorative ceramic dental treatments. Ernie attends regular training courses focusing on the more intricate details of ceramic dental techniques, modern dental technology, cosmetics, orthodontics and has a personal interest in the most challenging cases of both CEREC and Invisalign. Ernie was invited to move into orthodontics however chose to stay with general dental and become the best he could be with a passion to train and equip others to become the best at what they do too.

Ernie and his wife Sarah bought what was previously known as Parkwood Dental Centre in 2013 from Dr. Micheal Welten (who was a great uni friend of Ernie’s) and has since then taken it to new heights with the name changing to Photogenic Dental. Ernie had always dreamed of owning his own practice . Ernie is an avid basketball player, loves exercising and in the last couple of years spending time with his gorgeous kids Eve, Jack, Lucy and Grace.

Ernie’s wife Sarah has a background in communications and interior styling and currently heads up our marketing side of things here at Photogenic Dental. Sarah worked every Saturday for the first 18 months that her and Ernie owned Photogenic Dental right up until the few months before their first bub Eve was due. Many patients enjoyed seeing Sarah’s tummy grow over the months and what a great joy it has been for everyone to share in their journey as first time parents!

Ernie and Sarah share a great love for God and enjoy being a part of a lively and exciting Church in Myaree called Nations Church where Sarah was also on staff leading the Bible College in its inaugural year in 2015. Ernie loves being a dentist and business owner and you can often find his books filled with patients who drive to Perth from many parts of the South West to see him. He is greatly loved by patients and staff alike and is extremely grateful and honoured to be trusted with people’s health.
