Maurice has been practicing dentistry in the Northern Rivers since 1991. Uralba Street Dental opened its doors in September 2006.
Maurice was born and raised in Brisbane, where he gained his Bachelor of Dental Science degree from the University of Queensland. After graduating, he travelled to England to broaden his knowledge and gain additional skills. He worked in practices in the Midlands and London, made many friends and travelled as much as possible within the United Kingdom and Europe.
In 1990, he returned to Australia and he and his wife Helen moved to the Northern Rivers in 1991. They have two children who both attended school here and are currently at university. In his leisure time, Maurice enjoys looking after his small rainforest, watching rugby and cricket and is a keen cook.
