When he isn’t jamming out in his music room with his family or vigorously ‘parkouring’ through Singleton, you can find Dr. Manuel Velarde at Singleton Dental Care taking care of the many mouths of Singleton for now, over twenty years.
Manuel graduated from the University of Sydney in 1990 and worked at various surgeries and the Nepean hospital before moving onto the Aboriginal Medical Service in Redfern, where he worked and operated the dental van and travelled throughout NSW to service the many Aboriginal communities.
Manuel then moved to Armidale to be the University of New England dentist for a period of time then after a while came to settle down south in Singleton.
Their original practice in town square came up for sale in 1998, Manuel and supportive wife Amrit moved in straight away.
‘I have been living and practicing dentistry in Singleton at Singleton Dental Care since 1998. Our move to the country was driven by our desire to bring up our children in a country environment’ Manuel tells us.
Manuel and the team have been at the practice on Pitt street for ten years now (since 2008) and have set a high level of dentistry standards in the Singleton community.
’We have had the most wonderful staff work with us, singleton dental care always welcomes new patients to the practice and if in doubt check us out, second opinions are always welcome’ explains Amrit.
