Dr Rodney Geelan, B.D.S. (Adel) F.A.D.I.

I graduated from Adelaide University in 1980. After becoming principal dentist at Dowling Street Dental (now Rodney Geelan Dental) in 1994, I became a member of the Australian Dental Association and numerous affiliated societies. I have served on the council of the Tasmanian branch of the Australian Dental Association, and held executive positions on that council including that of president.

Continuing Professional Development continues to be a passion of mine, and I seek out the best possible postgraduate courses both nationally and internationally every year.

As a qualified dental nurse with over 25 years in dental health, I have extensive experience in all facets of the industry.

As practice manager, I oversee the efficient management of our business, with a focus on providing exceptional patient care. During my 14 years working with Dr Geelan, I have set about creating a best practice environment for all of our patients.

As a busy mother of three girls, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, playing tennis, coaching swimming, reading, and gardening.
