Dr Andrew Nixon
Andrew is a fastidious dentist who enjoys complex restorative dentistry. Andrew graduated with his Bachelor of Dental Sciences (BDSc) from The University of Queensland in 1990, having previously completed a Bachelor of Dental Studies (BDSt) research degree.
He spent his early years in Far North Queensland, a place and time where specialist dental support was thousands of kilometres away. The importance of achieving the very best possible care with his patients was seen and emphasised.
Here his passion and skills in all aspects of general dentistry flourished. He gained a true appreciation of what, with top-quality dentistry and a thorough understanding of all dental techniques, he can offer his patients.
He returned to Brisbane before settling in Newcastle in 2000. He gained level III Accreditation with the Australian Society of Implant Dentistry in 1995.
Andrew has a particular talent and passion for dental rehabilitation through dental implants and laser dentistry. All dentistry that Andrew undertakes bears aesthetic results and function with predictability and long term results.
He maintains membership in the ADA, the Australian Society for Endodontics and the Australian Osseointegration Society.
Andrew founded the Honeysuckle Dental practice during 2010 to provide the best possible environment for patients and staff to share his passion. Andrew balances his life with other interests that include road-cycling, mountain-biking, German Shepherd Dog’s and his family.
