Dr. Robert (Roy) Fox is one of the leading orthodontists in the Hills, Lower North Shore areas. His practice, Fox Orthodontics is a family orientated practice that was established over 30 years ago in Baulkham Hills. Dr. Fox grew up in Belfast, Northern Ireland and completed his dental degree at Queens University of Belfast. On completion of his degree, he worked in the Oral Surgery program at Belfast's Royal Victoria Hospital where he dealt with road accidents, gunshot, and explosion victims in the early part of the troubled times in Northern Ireland. He was transferred to the Orthodontic Department at the request of his Professor and obtained his Fellowship in Oral Surgery and Orthodontics from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and in parallel his Diploma in Orthodontics from the Royal College of Surgeons of England.
Dr. Fox became the Senior Registrar of Orthodontics at Queens University where his desire to travel developed. This desire led him to Australia where he worked in the Public Dental Service in North Sydney and also had a teaching commitment at Sydney University. In the early nineties, he set up his own practice that he continues to successfully run today. Dr. Fox and his family are committed and play an active role in their local community.
Dr. Fox believes that the greatest reward in orthodontic practice is by forming good relationships with his patients. He prides himself in the long-standing relationships he and his team have developed with their patients and their families. Each patient of Dr. Fox is unique where he tailors the solution that suits the desire and lifestyle of each individual. Dr. Fox is well known for his gentle and relaxed attitude throughout his consultations and treatments. He achieves excellent results that have developed many lasting friendships, particularly with those who appreciate his cheerful sense of humour.
The basis for Dr. Fox's treatment philosophy is the Hippocratic oath to do no harm. His approach is therefore conservative with the emphasis on retaining as many teeth as possible. Dr. Fox has gained special skills and insights from the British Medical Research Council where he recognises which patients will benefit from various appliances and those that would not, either for biological reasons or because they psychologically decline to take advantage of them. To ensure the best results for his patients, Dr. Fox personally provides all the treatments himself so that everyone has a pleasant and cheerful experience when they visit the dentist.
We look forward to bringing back your smile at Fox Orthodontics!
