Dr Barry John Doran

Graduated University of Queensland and been in general practice for 51 years. Come to Bowen Christmas of 1973 after 2 and a half years in Collinsville as the Government dentist. Loved Bowen so much that I decided to stay and have enjoyed the Bowen lifestyle ever since.

Even after all these years, I still enjoy the challenges of day to day dentistry and the relationships that one builds up with the patients. Although the mind says you can do it, the body does not let me do what I was capable of on the basketball and tennis courts, but it is still fun to try to be 20 again. Also avid reader and stamp collector to fill in my time after work.

When I get the chance, I really enjoy trying to beat the casino at blackjack and Poker.
