In October of last year, well-known dental surgeon Dr Roy Robertson closed his doors at Number 12 Kenthurst Rd, and began an exciting new venture with Dr. Olivia Ignatiou at Round Corner Shopping Village. However, it’s not the first time Roy and Olivia have been working side by side!
Dr. Robertson originally set up practice in 1981, and for the last 35 years he has been providing top quality dental expertise and a friendly smile to families of the local community. Many of his long-time patients who began their dental care with Roy as children, are now bringing their own children to see him years later.
In the late 1990s, Roy employed a talented and intelligent young woman, Olivia, as a dental nurse. At the time, Olivia was searching for a career to dedicate herself to. She spent the year of 1998 developing a passion for dentistry and learning from Roy. She went on to study dentistry at the University of Sydney, graduating with Honours in 2003. She has now accumulated 13 years of experience, working in private practice both in Sydney and on the Central Coast.
Olivia and her husband Bruce, who also works locally as a real estate agent, live in Glenhaven with their four young children.
Earlier last year, an opportunity came up at Round Corner for premises that would suit a new dental practice. Olivia has always stayed in touch with Roy, who inspired her career choice many years ago, and the timing felt right. They had spoken many times over the years about working together. She has now returned and taken over Dr. Roy Robertson’s practice. Roy is not retiring, and is working full time at the new premises with Olivia. They are looking forward to caring for the community together, and treat their patients like family.
The new premises is only 100m from the previous surgery, still in the Round Corner shopping village. For easy access, it is located at street level behind the NAB bank, next door to Jean Elle’s shoe boutique and directly underneath the Tandoori Sizzler restaurant.
