Meet Our Team
Craig Lewis B.D.S L.D.S R.C.S (Eng) - Practice Principal
I trained at King's College, London and qualified with British and Royal College of Surgeons degrees in 1984.
In 1988 I moved to Bournemouth and ran my own successful practice until I emigrated with my wife and four children in September 2006. I am now the proud owner of Ocean Reef Dental Surgery.
I enjoy all aspects of dentistry and building long standing relationships with my patients.
At Ocean Reef Dental Surgery we endeavour to practice pain-free dentistry and our approach is preventative. We are happy to discuss all treatment options prior to undertaking any course of treatment. We pride ourselves in employing excellent communicative skills so patients are able to select treatment options with which they are comfortable.
Outside of dentistry, I enjoy keeping fit with regular exercise and playing golf. I also enjoy spending time with my wife, children, and grandchildren.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Science with Honours from the University of Western Australia.
I have worked at dental practices all over Perth and have even worked in rural WA, but I am proud to say that I have found my home at Ocean Reef Dental Surgery.
I love that our surgery is so family orientated and that our patients value good, honest and practical dental care. I’m particularly interested in restorative dentistry and preventative care. I’m actively involved in teaching operative dentistry and prosthodontics at the UWA dental school (Oral Health Centre of WA).
I believe that it is never too late to start looking after your dental health and that there should be no shame in it – I’ll help you with a friendly approach. There’s a solution to every problem!
Outside of work I love to cook and exercise with my dog. I also watch a few too many movies and I like to try a new restaurant in Perth every weekend. Mostly, in winter, my partner likes to drag me away to the country to enjoy the peace and quiet – he rides his bike and I enjoy a glass of wine!
I’m looking forward to seeing you around the surgery.
OUR SUPPORT TEAM:
Terrell, our Practice Manager
I started working at Ocean Reef Dental Surgery in July 2015, having previously worked in sales for Bupa health insurance. I am originally from the UK and have lived in Perth for 9 years.
I have always enjoyed working in an environment that involves being on the ‘front line’, meeting and greeting new people.
I take pride in ensuring I offer all of our patients a great first impression when calling or visiting the surgery, and my infectious smile will help to make you feel at ease!
Our friendly Dental Nurses, Jen and Francesca.
I studied at Oral Health of Western Australia (OCHWA), qualifying with a Certificate III in Dental Assisting, in June 2014. Within the past two years, I have been lucky enough to work alongside General Dentists, Dental Therapists, Prosthodontists, Orthodontists, Oral Surgeons, and Implant Specialists, which has helped me to gain advanced knowledge within the industry.
I have been with Ocean Reef Dental Surgery since November 2015. We understand some patients can feel anxious about seeing the Dentist, but with our warm and welcoming team, I can assure you, you’ll soon feel relaxed, and we will have you smiling confidently!
I have been working as a Dental Nurse for over 20 years, qualifying from the Dental Examination Board UK, in 1993.
In 2007, my family and I moved to Perth, from South Wales, where I have been lucky enough to work at Ocean Reef Dental Surgery, ever since! I love being part of a team who all genuinely want the best for our patients.
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, cooking, watching my son play rugby, and enjoying the lifestyle Australia has to offer.
