  • Chris Barrow

    Chris has been in full-time employment for 49 years. He has operated his own businesses for 32 years and has been a trainer, consultant, coach and mentor to the UK dental profession for 23 years. Chris combines long experience and deep expertise with the originality and independence needed to resolve the thorniest problems. ​ Naturally direct, assertive and determined, he can reach conclusions quickly, as well as possessing the sharp reflexes and lightness of touch to innovate, change tack and push boundaries. As a speaker, he is dynamic, energetic and charismatic. ​ Chris spent the first 17 years of his working life in the corporate sector and followed this with 30+ years of business ownership. The different dynamics of both worlds have given him the valuable gift of knowing how to operate – and communicate – in both. ​ In 1987 Chris was active in the establishment of the Institute for Financial Planning, an organisation representing the first fee-based Financial Planners in the UK; Chris specialised in working with small businesses. ​ In 1993 Chris decided to make the transition to business coaching and became one of the first UK students at Coach University, from where he graduated as a certified coach. Recognising the opportunity in the dental profession, 1997 saw the creation of The Dental Business School (DBS) and the development of a 12-month business coaching programme for dental practice owners and their teams, delivered to over 1000 UK dental practices in the following 10 years. ​ The first decade of the 21st Century saw Chris in a variety of roles including Non-Executive Directorships as well as continuing his training, consultancy and coaching work for dental corporates, PCTs, dental retailers and, of course, independent practices. ​ Chris has co-authored Profitable Dental Practice (with Prof. Phil Newsome) and The E-Myth Dentist (with Michael Gerber) and is a prolific contributor to dental journals as well as author of his own e-books and blog since 2004. ​ In 2014 Chris experienced a “brief but enjoyable” summer of celebrity after appearing as one of the first castaways on the TV survival show “The Island with Bear Grylls”, abandoned with 12 others on a Pacific desert island and left to fend for themselves for a month. ​ His own day to day work as Coach Barrow with The Extreme Business programmes is still focused on strategic coaching with the owners of dental practices and micro-corporates.

  • Dr Stephen Dudgeon

    I joined Avenue Dental in 2005 and never dreamed how well things would turn out. I am now fortunate enough to own Avenue Dental with my best friend, Dr Eli Burger, and we have an absolutely fantastic team of talented dentists, hygienists, oral health therapists, receptionists and dental assistants to work with. Steve and Dentistry After six years of university life, I graduated from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Dental Science with First Class Honours. After graduating, I was lured to the lifestyle of Caloundra and the Sunshine Coast and joined the Avenue Dental family in 2005. I thank Dr Richard Bell for giving me the opportunity to work at Avenue Dental. My particular interests in dentistry are crown and bridgework, dental implants and cosmetic dentistry, however I like all aspects of dentistry. Generally, the larger the challenge, the more excited I get about dentistry! The two areas of dentistry I am not as passionate about are wisdom teeth removal and orthodontics. Fortunately we have Dr Richard Bell who is fantastic at wisdom tooth extractions and Dr Rachel Glancy who completes outstanding orthodontic treatment. After completing over 1 year of training at a dental implant training facility in Brisbane, I am excited to be able to offer dental implants right here on the Sunshine Coast. I love to see the difference that dental implants can make to people’s quality of life. Previously, when people had missing teeth the only option was a denture. Now we can replace missing teeth with a dental implant that looks, feels and chews like a natural tooth. Cosmetic Dentistry is the other area that I love because it makes such a difference to people’s lives. I feel a great sense of achievement when I am able to do fantastic dentistry that positively affects my patients. I also love being able to educate other dentists and pass on my passion to the next generation of dentists. For this reason, Dr Eli Burger and myself founded the Australian Dental Graduate of the Year Award to recognize and celebrate the best new graduate dentist in Australia each year. We also then take the top 5-10 new graduates in Australia and put them through the Avenue Dental Mini Residency in General Dentistry. This is an intensive program designed to best prepare newly graduated dentists for the challenges of dentistry and to develop them further into the best dentists that they can be. I am strongly committed to continuing education. I attend numerous courses each year, and also helped establish a study club in 2006; of which I am vice-president. To maintain registration as a dentist, the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA) requires dentists to participate in 20 hours of continuing professional development (CPD) every year. I usually complete over 200 hours of CPD a year so that rather than just staying compliant with regulations, instead I am continually improving and raising the standard of care I can offer my patients. To complete this many hours of continuing education I dedicate a significant portion of my life to ongoing learning, as well as personal and professional development. This involves weekly team training meetings with our whole practice, one on one clinical coaching meetings with each of our dentists, monthly clinical and treatment planning meetings with our dentists, hygienists and oral health therapists, regular reading (I aim to read at least 1 book a month), regular journal reading, quarterly coaching and mentoring of other dentists through the Avenue Dental Mini Residency in General Dentistry, as well as attending other lectures and hands on courses that spark my interest. Steve and Avenue Dental My good friend and mentor, Dr Richard Bell, founded Avenue Dental in 1991. He hired me straight after I graduated from dental school and I am forever grateful for the faith he showed in me, and the time and effort he invested in me to help me become the dentist I am today. I love coming to work as each day I try to work towards our purpose, “Positively Transforming Dentistry in Australia”. I have found it very rewarding to clarify the values of Avenue Dental: Passion; Personal and Professional Growth; Positivity and Fun; People Synergistic Teamwork; Proactive and Creative; and Pursuit of Excellence.

  • Prof. John Mew

    rofessor John Mew graduated in dentistry at University College London and then trained in Orthognathic surgery at the Royal Victoria Hospital, East Grinstead where he developed an interest in the science of facial growth. Seeking alternatives to facial surgery he returned in 1965 to University College to specialise in orthodontics. Since then he has been developing non-surgical methods of correcting unattractive vertical growth in children’s faces. In the 1970s he wrote several papers on the new sub-specialty of ‘Orthotropics’ which aims to encourage horizontal growth by changing oral posture. He has written a textbook and published many articles internationally on this subject. John has recently been described both as “a maverick” and “the brightest orthodontist who has ever lived”. You might be intrigued to find out which is closer to the truth?
