Dr Anthony BurkeDr Anthony Burke (Tony) received his Bachelor of Dental Science (BDSc) from the University of Melbourne in 1984, finishing in the Top 10 of his graduating Year. Tony then went on to gain his Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons (FRACDS) in 1989. Tony has been looking after dental patients in Ringwood since early 1986, having spent the previous year working at a country practice based in Leongatha and Foster, South Gippsland. As of 2012, he has looked after the dental health of patients in and around Ringwood for 27 years.

Tony continues to remain active in further dental education, being a current member of the Australian Dental Association, as well as long term memberships of:

As a General Practice Dentist, Tony offers a wide range of family based dental treatment solutions but he is especially interested and involved in the restoration of failing and broken down dentitions. This complex treatment involves detailed treatment planning and many modalities of dental treatment, including tooth removal, restoration of high priority decayed, cracked and/or fractured teeth and the replacement of important missing teeth with solutions that may involve removable dentures, bridges and/or dental implant retained restorations. Several appointments discussing treatment options as scheduled so that you, the patient, fully understand treatment options and treatment procedures – including longevity, timing of treatment, staging of treatment and costs.

On a non dental level – Tony lives locally in Park Orchards and is married with a teenage family that keeps him busy. Having two daughters, he has had a long term involvement with the Park Orchards Netball Club (PONC), having served as Club President for four years.

One of Tony’s passions is his collection of aviation art which he proudly displays on his practice walls. Both his Father and Uncle served with the RAAF during the Second World War and Tony has a great interest in the aviation of this period. He is more than happy to chat about his collection with interested patients.

Since the mid ‘80s, he has been a member of the Australian Skeptics Society and reads widely on science, religion and history. Everyone who gets to know Tony soon realises that he is a keen STAR WARS fan and a fanatical Melbourne STORM foundation member. He enjoys getting to know his patients and their families – and is never short of a word.
