Dr. Thomas Graydon
Tom is the principal dentist at Durlacher Dental Care. Having grown up in Perth, he graduated from the prestigious University of Western Australia where he received the Alistair Devlin Prize in Paediatric Dentistry. He has worked in a number of different private practices in both the city and the country including Bunbury, Pinjarra and Merredin, receiving a broad and extensive range of experience in all aspects of general dentistry. He has now settled here in Geraldton and is excited to call it home!
Tom’s passion for dentistry started at an early age - he was fortunate enough to have a very enthusiastic and caring dentist as a child, and never hated his dental visits growing up. In his early days as a dental student, Tom realized the impact that a healthy, functional set of teeth can have on a person, and his appreciation for the technical side of dentistry become a passion. Tom prides himself on his easy-going and relaxed persona, and he strives to impart the same dentist-loving attitude on to his patients that he had in the past.
Outside of the dental surgery, Tom is a big foodie with a real passion for cooking and learning about different cuisines of the world. Tom’s epicurean interests influence his love of travelling, as he enjoys eating his way across the globe. Despite a dire lack of ability, he loves playing soccer and watching AFL, and is very keen to give kite surfing a go!

Being originally from Brisbane, Cindy is very excited to move here to Geraldton and explore the natural, artistic and cultural wonders that the West Coast has to offer. When she’s not sitting in the dental chair, she can be found sitting in dimly lit cinemas, behind an easel with a paintbrush in hand, or as the only person under the age of 60 in attendance at a theatrical production! Cindy also has a love of performance and dance that has taken her on adventures across the globe.
