David started working as a new graduate in 1976 with Dr Gordon Pfeiffer when David had dark hair, no children and Mount Barker was a smallish country town. Mount Barker is now a huge centre, David has white hair, 5 children and 11 grandchildren and is treating the fourth generation of some of the local families. David still thoroughly enjoys work and has a passionate interest in soccer, farming and his large precious family.

Ashley is caring and very experienced. He takes the time to review past dental history, listens carefully and has the experience and skills to deal with complex problems. He has many years of experience in rural dental practice which has given him skills beyond that of most city dentists.
