Dr Patrick O’Rourke

Originally from the United Kingdom, Dr Patrick O’Rourke’s life has led him around the world, first to South Africa where he undertook elective training at the University of Witwatersrand Dental Department in Johannesburg and eventually to Australia.

In Australia, he has worked from Swan Hill to the Snowy Mountains, from Byron Bay to Darwin with stops in Cairns which he loved. He is now proud to make his home on the Sunshine Coast, serving the community, which he created with the goal of enhancing his patients’ lives through improved health, aesthetics and pain free living.


Dr Laura Borrie

Dr Laura Borrie graduated from King’s College in London in 2018. She started her career in the North East of England, providing dental care on their National Health System before joining private practices.

Since graduating, Laura has completed a variety of postgraduate qualifications, including a certificate in Aesthetic Dentistry, training in cosmetic facial injectables and Invisalign. As well as this, she is also a member of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow.

Laura enjoys every day treatments like fillings and crowns that can help restore a patient’s dental health, as well as educating them on how to maintain this. The most rewarding part of her job is making a visit to the dentist as relaxing and pain-free as possible!

After spending a few months travelling around Australia, Laura recently moved to the Sunshine Coast where she is enjoying the sunnier and more relaxed lifestyle than back in England. Outside of work she plays netball and is currently trying to learn how to surf.

She is passionate about educating her patients on the prevention of gum disease and tooth decay, giving guidance and encouragement at each treatment visit.
