Dr Rob Sivertsen commenced at Apollonia House Dental Surgery in 2003.
Rob completed his dental degree at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg in 1985, when he returned home to Zimbabwe. He bought an established practice in Harare in 1988, where he remained until 2002, when he migrated to Toowoomba with his young family.
Patients of the practice are guaranteed to see Rob at each and every visit and this enables him to create long-term relationships with his patients. Rob believes in offering modern, but proven, dentistry, whilst being committed to those old-fashioned values that patients appreciate. Most importantly he takes the time to listen, ask questions and offer his patients a clear understanding of the different options that are available to them in order to achieve their health goals.
In addition to running his practice, Rob has been a dedicated member of his professional associations, including being president of the Dental Association of Zimbabwe, and Regional Councillor representing Toowoomba and the west for the Australian Dental Association Queensland branch.
He is passionate about community dental health and education, and over the course of several years has worked together with local government and State politicians in an effort to optimise the water fluoridation of our city.
Dr Sivertsen’s expertise is matched by his commitment to the traditional propriety of personalised service, taking time with patients and fully honouring the patient-doctor relationship. We understand the pressures of modern living, and realise that busy schedules can push your health, and the health of your mouth, into second place. All of the staff at Apollonia House practise non-judgemental assessments, with the sole goal of getting you back on track towards oral health and comfort.
