Meet Dr Joshua Vowles

Making a Change


Dr Josh took his uni science degree and became a high school math and science teacher. After about five years in that field, he was left craving more fulfilment and challenge and a chance to be his own boss.

Dentistry was not on his radar until a relative who knew he was seeking change suggested that it might be something he’d enjoy. The idea really clicked with Dr Josh! And it turns out he finds genuine enjoyment in the hands-on, mentally stimulating world of dentistry.

Being a “mature age” student with family and financial obligations made dental school challenging. What motivated Dr Josh to overcome these obstacles was his desire to be his own boss. He looked forward to opening his own practice where he could create the exact atmosphere and approach to care that he envisioned for his patients.

Dr Josh graduated from the University of Western Australia Dental School in 2007. In 2012, he fulfilled his dream of being his own boss when he took over Greenwood Dental Surgery.

Discovering His Passion

One standout passion in Dr Josh’s dental journey is his keen interest in implants, something he has complemented with a graduate diploma in dental implants. This specialisation showcases his commitment to meeting and exceeding expectations; delivering top-notch and specialised care to those who trust him with their smiles.

Enjoying Family Time

When he’s not at the practice, Dr Josh spends his time with his family, including his wife and three kids.

He enjoys watching movies and going out to eat, and he’s passionate about learning to play the guitar – even if he plays it badly!
