Dr Patrick Byrne

Originally from Scotland, Patrick emigrated from Glasgow with his family settling in South Australia in  1979. Graduating from the University of Adelaide in 1991 , he started his dental career spending 3 years in Mount Gambier fine tuning his skills in a very busy country practice. This experience inspired him to start up his own solo practice in 1994 in Port Pirie where he spent 16 wonderful years in the local community playing sport and raising his young family. Country dentistry allowed him the opportunity  to not only treat people from all of the surrounding areas but to provide his patients with a range of services which would not neccessarily be possible by a general practitioner in the city.

He then moved back with his family to Adelaide where he enjoyed working in several clinics both in the city and in the Adelaide Hills. Every clinic provided him with an opportunity to learn from other professionals and increase his dental knowledge. Port Dental was selected by Patrick as it has an honest approach to providing affordable quality dentistry.

He continues to invest in Continuing Professional Development Programs to  maintain his clinical skills and knowledge and to ensure his patients receive the most appropriate up-to-date dentistry he can offer. Building trust and confidence in the service is the cornerstone of Patrick’s philosophy.

Out of work he enjoys running, tennis, golf, camping and hiking. He has an adult daughter and a younger son and daughter. He is very passionate about soccer and has been known to hibernate for a month during the World Cup.
