    Dr Trigger

    Dr David Trigger - Principal Dentist

    David is originally from Queensland and graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Science from the University of Queensland in 1984. He worked for several years in large group dental practices in Toowoomba and Hobart before taking up the position of Regional Dental Officer in Katherine in the Northern Territory. This involved travelling widely across the region providing dental care to the residents of both Katherine and the outlying communities and outstations. In 1990, David and his wife, Georgina, moved to Canberra, with David returning to private practice in Woden. In 1994 David became a principal dentist at Wanniassa Dental Surgery.

    David is experienced in all areas of dental treatment and has a special interest in endodontic and cosmetic restorations. While David has over thirty years of dental experience, the primary focus always remains to provide the best possible care for each and every patient and ensuring their comfort at all times. After many years at WDS, David has built up many long standing professional relationships and friendships with families and individual patients and especially values this aspect of his working life.

    Outside of work, David and Georgina have three children and enjoy bushwalking, running and reading. David plays soccer in the Canberra Masters competition and has an interest in economics – completing his PhD in 2000.

    Dr Paul

    Dr Paul Narracott – Principal Dentist

    Paul graduated from the University of Queensland with Bachelor Degrees in Science (1980) and Dental Science (1987). After discovering the delights of Canberra during a sporting career at the Australian Institute of Sport, it was an easy decision to begin his dental career here where he worked in private practice before joining Wanniassa Dental in 1992.

    Paul is experienced in all areas of general dentistry with particular interests in oral surgery, endodontics and cosmetic dentistry. He enjoys the daily interaction with his patients and the collegiality of the local dental profession.

    Away from the surgery, Paul is usually playing, watching or thinking about sport. These days, he prefers a slower paced game of tennis or a round of golf with his wife, Robyn. Paul is a very proud member of the ACT Sporting Hall of Fame, and looks forward to many years of working and living in Canberra.
