Dr. Henry Gilkes
Dentist | BDS (Adel)
I graduated from the University of Adelaide with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 1982.
From 1982 through to 1983 I worked in Hounslow in the United Kingdom. I returned to Australia in 1984, when I worked in the community of Robe as a dentist, and at West Lakes Dental until 1989. In 1989 I became a managing partner at West Lakes, and have been here ever since! I have worked hard to become skilled in all aspects of general dental practice, whilst still maintaining a special interest in oral surgery and implantology.
My ongoing education has included numerous courses to upskill in oral surgery, implantology, hypnosis, practice management and general dental clinical skills.
I am currently the SA state chairman for the National Dental Foundation (a philanthropic organisation that supplies pro bono dental treatment to the needy in our community).
I am also an active member of The Seattle Study Club, SA Osseointegration Society, the Australian Dental Association, and am registered with the Dental Board through AHPRA. I have been accredited with Admitting and Dental Surgical privileges at Western Hospital and accredited with Surgical Assistant privileges at Wakefield Hospital.
In my spare time I enjoy bike riding, photography, and windsurfing. I am married with two adult daughters.
