Dr Brodie is an experienced dentist who has been practising for the past 8 years in Shepparton. Brodie completed his dental studies in Bendigo, and after 8 years away, it was time for him to return to be closer to family.
Brodie understands that many people are apprehensive about visiting the dentist, but his caring and compassionate nature and ability to create a relaxed atmosphere help to make each appointment as comfortable as possible.
Brodie enjoys most areas of dentistry, but particularly enjoys the restorative aspects. Brodie has an emphasis on quality, appropriate dental treatment and takes the time to understand each and every patient’s expectations. Brodie takes particular pride in building confidence in those who may have neglected their dental health previously, and working with them to provide a healthy, comfortable smile.
In his spare time Brodie enjoys spending time with his family, eating and trying new foods, and travelling when able. Brodie is also an avid follower of the Essendon Football Club and so has unfortunately been perennially disappointed.
