MEET THE TEAM
Dr Jeffrey Agius graduated in 1992 from Sydney University and has practiced in Miranda since 1994, originally in Westfield Miranda Office Tower. He continues to further his knowledge by regularly attending continuing education courses. Dr Agius’ main focus is on comprehensive cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics and family dental care, as these are the specific areas of dentistry that he is passionate about.
In 2002, he began the Sydney University long orthodontic course which spread over a 3 year period. He completed LVI (Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies) programmes in both Las Vegas and Sydney between 2005 and 2007, which gave him a very structured and knowledgeable approach to aesthetic and cosmetic dental reconstructions.
With Dr Agius’s interest in orthodontics growing further he began to take on more and more cases and his desire to keep learning in the orthodontic field led him to the complete one of the most comprehensive orthodontic courses in the world available to the general dentist, the POS (Progressive Orthodontic Seminars). He graduated this course with a mark of 91% and highest honours.
Dr Agius is a member of the ADA and St George Dental Association. He lives locally, with his wife Tracey and two daughters Charleigh and Georgia, understanding the community and supporting local businesses. Dr Agius’ hobbies include general fitness, cycling, and fishing. He is also an avid guitarist who enjoys playing rock, punk and metal and is currently forming a pop punk covers band.
