Meet Dr Paul Barnicoat
Paul was raised in Toronto, Canada and moved to the UK at 16 years of age to complete his education. He graduated as a dentist, in London UK, in 1991.
Paul began his dental career in the home counties, around London, before moving westwards, settling in Devon where he met his wife Kim, and started a family.
He practiced and lived there for the following 17 years.
An experienced dentist, Paul owned his own practice in Exeter, Devon, which he started with his wife Kim in 1998.
Paul has a passion for general dentistry, which was reflected in the growth of the practice, from a concrete slab to a vibrant, thriving, family dental practice over the following 15 years.
Alongside general practice, Paul has a special interest in Orthodontics, working in the local hospital one day a week, alongside a consultant orthodontist for the last 12 years, treating advanced orthodontic cases.
Paul’s caring attitude calms the most nervous and anxious patients. His holistic treatment plans encompass the whole patient’s needs and wants, addressing critical factors such as cost, time and the patients’ needs and wants.
This is reflected in his opening line “ What can I do for you?”
Paul emigrated to the beautiful Sunshine Coast with his family in 2013, where he initially worked in Caloundra and Mooloolaba. Paul and Kim live in Noosaville with their son Matt and dog Izzie.
Paul hopes that the new dental practice will become a vibrant part of the Tewantin and Noosa Communities, and by sourcing local suppliers, aims to support other local family businesses.
In his free time, Paul enjoys photography, sailing, playing golf, gardening, skiing and spending as much time in the outdoors as he can with his family.
