Coal miner to Dental Surgeon

Dr Damian Lloyd is a local Novacastrian, growing up in Lake Macquarie and attending Warners Bay High School. After high school Damian took an apprenticeship as an electrical contractor in the coalmines, but got itchy feet and took himself back to complete Year 12 for a career change.

Dr Damian Lloyd obtained his degree from Sydney University in 1997. During his undergraduate training, Damian took a keen interest in oral surgery and implant dentistry, often volunteering days in the Oral Surgery departments at Westmead and Sydney Dental Hospitals, developing his surgical skills before graduation.

Since graduation Damian has continued to further his interest in oral surgery and implant dentistry by regularly attending continuing educational lectures, seminars, conferences and workshops.

Dr Damian Lloyd has surgically extracted more than 20,000 wisdom teeth and is accomplished in most minor oral surgical procedures. He also has taken a keen interest in mentoring many less experienced colleagues.

With the number of completed implant cases now in the thousands, Dr Lloyd is highly experienced and works with the most renowned implant systems. He is proficient in all aspects of surgery including soft tissue and hard tissue contouring resulting in the most pleasing cosmetic outcomes.

Damian has been the regular dental surgeon for our Sleep Dental Team at Charlestown Dental for the last eight years, with a reputation for his compassionate and caring manner. He has been attending Lingard Hospital for the past 15 years for dental treatment under general anesthesia, and has a theatre list their most weeks. Even the most anxious of patients have had their expectations exceeded in finding their dental experience to be surprisingly comfortable in this setting.

Damian is a bit of a rev-head, always on the lookout for some classic wheels to do up, and enjoys surfing and working out or a weekend camping out in the bush in his spare time.
