Dr Terence Alexander qualified from the University of the Witwatersrand in 1987 and received the PROSSA prize for clinical fixed prosthodontics and the Lester Brown award in Maxillofacial and Oral Surgery as an undergraduate. He has completed training in South Africa obtaining a Fellowship from the college of Maxillofacial and Oral Surgeons and Master’s degree in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery from the University of the Witwatersrand. He was awarded the Medal of the South African Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons for the most outstanding candidate in the final fellowship examination. His training and experience in South Africa has offered him extensive exposure to the treatment of severe maxillofacial injuries, gunshot injuries to the facial region, advanced oral pathology, reconstructive surgery, oral surgery, dental implantology and orthognathic surgery.
Dr Alexander entered private practice in South Africa in 1995 but kept his ties within the public system being an examiner for the college of Medicine and becoming head of the Orthognathic Surgery unit at the Johannesburg Hospital in 2000 until his immigration to Australia, with his wife and three sons, in 2008. He runs his own private practice in Brisbane.
Dr Alexander regularly attends local and international meetings particularly in the field of dental implantology and orthognathic surgery and continues to tutor and lecture both at The University of Queensland and Griffith University. He has over 20 years of dental implantology experience including the placement of zygomatic implants.
Terence likes to spend time with his family and enjoys photography and birding.
