Coal miner to Dental Surgeon
Dr Damian Lloyd is a local Novacastrian, growing up in Lake Macquarie and attending Warners Bay High School. After high school Damian took an apprenticeship as an electrical contractor in the coalmines, but got itchy feet and took himself back to complete Year 12 for a career change.
Dr Damian Lloyd obtained his degree from Sydney University in 1997. During his undergraduate training, Damian took a keen interest in oral surgery and implant dentistry, often volunteering days in the Oral Surgery departments at Westmead and Sydney Dental Hospitals, developing his surgical skills before graduation.
Since graduation Damian has continued to further his interest in oral surgery and implant dentistry by regularly attending continuing educational lectures, seminars, conferences and workshops.
Dr Damian Lloyd has surgically extracted more than 20,000 wisdom teeth and is accomplished in most minor oral surgical procedures. He also has taken a keen interest in mentoring many less experienced colleagues.
With the number of completed implant cases now in the thousands, Dr Lloyd is highly experienced and works with the most renowned implant systems. He is proficient in all aspects of surgery including soft tissue and hard tissue contouring resulting in the most pleasing cosmetic outcomes.
Damian has been the regular dental surgeon for our Sleep Dental Team at Charlestown Dental for the last eight years, with a reputation for his compassionate and caring manner. He has been attending Lingard Hospital for the past 11 years for dental treatment under general anesthesia, and has a theatre list there most weeks. Even the most anxious of patients have had their expectations exceeded in finding their dental experience to be surprisingly comfortable in this setting.
Damian is married and has five young children. He is a bit of a rev-head, always on the lookout for some classic wheels to do up, and enjoys surfing and working out or a weekend camping out in the bush in his spare time.
“Friendly, Professional, Trustworthy, down to earth, knowledgeable and I trusted his judgment.”
“Great service and I felt comfortable with his treatment”
“The information provided by Damian before and during the procedure was excellent and the procedure went well. My recovery has had no ill effects and I have been able to return to normal within 24 hours of the procedure.”
“Excellent service, as well as being thorough, I felt very confident dealing with him and felt he had my best interests at the forefront of his mind when making assessments and recommendations”
“Dr Lloyd was wonderful. He genuinely cares about his patients and explains procedures etc very clearly. I would highly recommend him to people”
“To Doctor Damian, Thanks for looking after my wisdom teeth surgery. You made it a much less scary incident than I had anticipated”
“I have been “desperate” in pain and anxious. Since 2009 I have consulted numerous oral surgeons, hospital, dentists and specialists and Damian clarified and expeditiously organized all my treatment and dental care fixing all but one tooth that we are currently treating. I cannot express that Damian is a very special dentist”
“To Damian, Thanks you so much for your kindness and for being such a wonderful surgeon”
