Dilan was born in South Africa, where his interest in dentistry was sparked at a young age by spending time at his father’s dental practice. In 2006, Dilan graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg. Dilan has since completed a post-graduate degree on dental development and growth at the University of Adelaide, where he graduated with first class honours.
Dilan enjoys both the technical side of dentistry, as well as the chance to build ongoing personal relationships with his patients through his clinical skills, gentle nature and dedication to patient satisfaction.
Dilan has a passion for learning and has been a clinical tutor in dentistry at the University of Adelaide since 2012, where he enjoys mentoring and developing students in their clinical abilities. Dilan has an academic interest in paediatric dentistry and orthodontics, and is currently involved in post-graduate research at the University of Adelaide. He is also pursuing additional clinical qualifications with the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons.
Dilan works in both private and public practice, and in particular has a passion for community healthcare. Since 2012 he has worked at the Adelaide Dental Hospital, where he treats patients with a wide range of conditions which are both dentally and medically complex. He is actively involved in promoting healthy living through social organisations and events. He has assisted in fundraising activities for the Royal Adelaide Hospital Research Fund, Diabetes SA and most recently the Womens and Childrens Hospital Foundation.
Prior to making Adelaide his home, Dilan lived in the USA and the UK. In early 2018, Dilan and his wife became parents to a beautiful baby girl, and the three of them are proud to be part of the local Goodwood community.
In his down time, Dilan enjoys travelling and spending time with his family, either overseas or exploring all that South Australia has to offer.
