Dr Kent Farmer
BDSC MDSC(QLD) MRACDS
Kent is passionate about orthodontics and the difference it can make in the lives of his patients. He works long hours caring for his patients but also somehow seems to find the energy for a full-on life outside work.
Kent grew up in Charters Towers and graduated from UQ with first class honours in 1985. After a few years working as a dentist in Mount Isa, he returned to university to study orthodontics for a further three years. He has also been a clinical supervisor at UQ.
When Kent is not at ethos, you might find him riding a dirt bike, playing touch football or tennis, relaxing with his wife and children, overseeing his farm or showing his support for the Reds or Broncos.
Kent’s idea of the perfect holiday is a walk on the wild side. His wilderness trekking has already taken him to the Kokoda trail and Mount Kilimanjaro – but he’s always looking for the next adventure. Work too takes him overseas, where he attends orthodontics conferences in order to stay up to date with the latest research and treatment.
