Dr. Stephen Allsopp

Dr Stephen obtained his degree in Western Australia but has practiced in Victoria since 1981. He started Bannockburn Dental in 1991 back when the main street was just a few buildings in a friendly rural town,  and has found it rewarding to see the practice grow along with the community.
