Dr Laurie is a man of many talents, he started his working life as a high school teacher at various schools including Trinity Bay High School. He then went on to complete his dental degree which led him to a further degree in orthodontics as a mature age student - he has created beautiful smiles for many patients throughout his dental career!
For a number of years now, Dr Laurie has aimed at retiring! As the former owner of NQ Ortho and also Dr Rhonda’s father he has paved the way and handed over the reins with the aim of slowing down and enjoying retirement. However his knowledge and experience is highly sort after and he still enjoys being hands on...so he hasn’t put down the tools just yet!
We have the pleasure of having Dr Laurie working with us in the practice when Dr Rhonda needs a helping hand.
