About Dr Graham Loader
Our practice has been on this site for many years but became recognisable as today’s Katoomba Dental Practice in 1998 when Graham Loader and Chih Liu took over as joint partners with Naveed Jamil joining not long afterwards. Many of the team joined at this time and are still here many years later.
Dr Graham Loader BDS GDC No. 61868 qualified in 1986 from The Royal London Hospital and went on to hold a House Officers position in the Department of Conservative Dentistry. After working in a dental practice in Redhill he joined Katoomba in 1990 as an associate before taking over as a joint partner in 1998.
‘I started to develop an interest in dentistry at the age of 12 and soon decided that this was the career that I wished to pursue. By the time I graduated from Dental School in 1986 I had developed a real passion for dentistry.
The ability to help people when they have problems with their teeth, together with the chance to give people more confidence by improving their all important smile, is something that I find very satisfying.
I have been at Katoomba Dental Practice for over 25 years now and have built up strong relationships and friendships with my very loyal patients. I have always believed that this is fundamental to making your experience as a patient more comfortable. I understand that people worry about coming to the dentist and so I continually work with our team to make a visit to our practice a pleasant one.
As far as my dentistry is concerned I have a particular interest in working with tooth coloured filling materials and porcelain veneers to enhance your smile. I also love our Cerec machine which allows me to fabricate beautiful natural looking ceramic restorations for your teeth in a single visit and without the need to send the work out to the dental laboratory.
As much as I love my career choice I do have a life away from dentistry. I have a wonderful wife, Laura, three beautiful young daughters and a grown up son who I am very proud of. Spending time with my family is important to me and seeing them grow up is one of life’s great pleasures. We all enjoy going swimming together and I am hoping that one day my girls will want to join me on the golf course!’

Working from home meant we could vary snack and coffee breaks, change our desks…
