Dr Alexys Ward
I am Alexys Ward, one of the principal dentists at the Happy Tooth Singleton. I have graduated from Sydney University with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery and since graduating I have completed over 40 additional courses in advanced dentistry.
The Hunter has always been my home. I grew up on a small farm outside Maitland and now live on a small farm outside Cessnock. As a family, we bred cattle and sometimes exhibited them at shows including Cessnock and Sydney. Outside dentistry, I am passionate about animals and gardening.
Over the past seven years I have practiced dentistry in both Sydney and the Hunter Valley. The city experience has allowed me to gain expertise in advanced dental techniques using the latest generation equipment and technology. The Happy Tooth Singleton has been fitted out with equipment of the 21st century to give you the best possible dental care, I have sought out top class equipment and facilities. I want you to have what I would want in dental treatment- treatment that looks great, feels great and lasts as long as possible. I have always adhered to the philosophy of, ‘if you are going to do something, do it well and always give it your best’.

I have been working in the Hunter Valley area for over 7 years, having moved here from Sydney with a Bachelor of Dentistry, after studying a variety of Medical Sciences.

Hi! My name is Jon and I graduated from Randwick Tafe with and Associate Diploma in Dental Technology in 1999. After 2 years of gaining experience throughout a diverse range of cases in the field of dental technology, I furthered my studies as a dental technician by upgrading my qualifications to a Diploma in Dental Technology. In 2004 I pursued my passion further by undertaking an Advanced Diploma in Dental Prothetices, graduating in July 2006 as a registered Dental Prosthetist. In doing so I also received the ‘Phil Harris Award’ for the best student overall. My studies continue today constantly gaining knowledge in the field of dentures and more recently implant retained dentures. In 2009 I was involved in the education of Dental Prosthetics at Randwick Tafe as the assistant teacher for implant retained dentures.
I have been working in Sydney throughout my career and am thoroughly enjoying escaping the city to work within the beautiful surroundings of the Hunter Valley, especially due to the abundance of golf courses, vineyards and exciting motorcycle rides at my fingertips.
