Dr Ian McCarrey
Born and raised in Perth, Ian graduated from the University of Western Australia with a Bachelor of Dental Science in 1983. After working in a suburban government dental clinic for a year, Ian moved to the United Kingdom to live and work for four years. Whilst working in private practice, Ian completed a certificate from the Society of Advanced Anaesthesia in Dentistry. Upon returning to Perth, Ian established TLC Dental with Dr Charles Love, and they have grown from one location to multiple sites, offering an extensive range of services.
Continuous professional development has been a constant in Ian’s career. Oral rehabilitation to replace missing teeth and improving the function and appearance of existing teeth are of particular interest. Consequently, Ian has developed advanced skills and knowledge in Implantology, Porcelain Veneers, Crown and Bridgework. In recent years, Ian has done further training in the understanding and treatment of Sleep Apnoea and Snoring and the consequences of these conditions to overall health and well being. Volunteer Dentistry in Northern Australia and overseas have been recent additions to Ian’s accomplishments.
In Ian’s personal life, family is a strong focus, with two now adult children whom have both been subjected to their father’s enthusiastic coaching of junior sport, which continues today with armchair coaching of the Fremantle Dockers. Ian has participated in a variety of sporting endeavours over the years and is currently very enthusiastic at playing questionable golf.
