Dr Darren Burch

Dr Darren graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Science from the University of Western Australia in 1995. After practising in both government and private practices in WA and NT for a number of years, he made the move to Townsville in 2003. Darren has worked in Townsville for the Australian Defence Force (ADF) and also in private practice before making the decision to build this new practice in 2013.

Darren’s dental passions include aesthetic restorations, root canal treatment and orthodontics ; thus becoming an accredited provider of Cfast and Fastbraces ® orthodontic systems. More recently, Darren has completed further education on straightening teeth using bespoke and custom designed aligner systems.

In May 2019 Darren was proudly awarded the title of ‘Senior Master Provider’ by Fastbraces Inventor and published Orthodontist : Dr Anthony Viazis in Dallas, Texas.

But most of all Darren gets immense satisfaction from meeting a nervous or anxious patient and helping them move past their dental phobia and helping them make regular dental visits a part of their health and well-being routine.

Outside of dentistry Darren enjoys caravanning, cooking and red wine. Darren is married to Jen (who also works at the practice) and they have two teenage daughters. Darren loves the North Queensland lifestyle and after travelling the world and Australia, is happy to call Townsville home.

Darren is a member of the Australian Dental Association (Qld) and registered by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
