Dr Dean Martin Dental Surgeon was the Guest Speaker at the Rotary Club of Attadale meeting at Tompkins on Swan on Monday 13th November. Dr Martin graduated from the University of Western Australia in 1987. He obtained his Fellowship (FRACDS) from University of Sydney and his Grad Diploma at UWA. He has owned his dental surgery since 1990 and is always updating his knowledge & techniques to make sure his patients receive the best dental treatment that is available. He explained the various dental procedures being undertaken at his surgery these days including Children's Dentistry, Cosmetic Dentistry, Dental Implants, Oral Surgery, Periodontics, Root Canal Therapy, Emergency dental work, and many other areas.
Dr Martin also has a regular segment on Curtin Radio 100.1FM on the afternoon program with Jenny Seaton where he takes calls from listeners and answers their dental queries.
Apart from dentistry Dr Martin likes to cycle and play golf. He is also a DJ on Curtin FM 100.1 every Sunday afternoon between 12-3pm where he plays fabulous music and also tells some 'Dad' jokes. Dean also told all present at the meeting the history of Curtin Radio, a little about their presenters and explained how he, as a dentist, actually got involved with the station. Dr Martin was a very interesting speaker, he has a fabulous personality and we can imagine that because of this, his patients would also be relaxed when having to undergo any dental treatment at his surgery.
At the end of the evening President Colin McCulloch played a YouTube skit on the big screen of Dean Martin (the original Dino) and comedian Foster Brooks As a Dentist. This was really humorous and to see all present (including Dr Dean Martin) crying with laughter, it was a fun way to end the segment. If you haven't seen it before, do yourself a favour and google 'Dean Martin and Foster Brooks as Dentist.
Attadale Rotary Club certainly have great meetings, come along one Monday night and see for yourself!
