After working many years in the computer industry as a graphic and web designer, Chad decided to try a different career path. In 2005 he received his Bachelor of Science, majoring in Biology and also completed an additional year of business administration. He then went on to receive his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2010 from Dalhousie University in Canada. For the next 3 years Chad was a contracted dentist working for the Canadian military at CFB Gagetown, one of the largest military bases in the British Commonwealth. In 2013, Chad started looking into an exotic and exciting country he was told about on the other side of the planet. After graduating from dental school, he was made aware of the reciprocal working agreement between Canada and Australia. Dentists can travel between the two countries and their qualifications are equally recognised. Very few countries in the world work as closely as Canada and Australia to standardise their dental surgeons and make the quality of care identical. Chad states, “I always kept the idea of moving to Australia in the back of my mind and now that my wife and I are here, we feel it’s been the best decision for us!” Chad and his wife Tina love touring the country side on their motorcycles. “You might get four or five months of riding in Canada, but the great thing about Australia is the ability to enjoy the outdoors all year round.” Being a geek at heart, Chad also loves going to comic-con/sci-fi events and playing computer games. On the less geeky side, he loves spending the day out at the paintball field. Chad initially worked in Canberra since June 2013, but made the permanent move to Tamworth in February 2015. Skilled in all aspects of general dentistry including implant restoration, surgical extractions, crown and bridge work as well as cosmetic veneers and whitening, Dr. Henderson can take care of your whole family’s dental needs.
