DR GEOFF STANTON
Orthodontist, Townsville Orthodontic Specialists
AKA: Reg in my Uni days. Not sure of the origin.
I’M RENOWNED FOR: Long distance running and repairing things.
ONLY A LOCAL WOULD KNOW… Bum Rock at Picnic Bay, Maggie Island.
MY MOST MEMORABLE HOLIDAY WAS… Camping with family and friends at Lawn Hill Gorge (Boodjamulla) National Park in 2012. Very relaxing and canoeing in the gorge was wonderful.
RIGHT NOW I WISH I WAS… Camping with our friends currently in central Australia, but this trip will have to wait!
MY FAVOURITE DAY IS: Friday, as it’s usually my RDO. I begin the day with sunrise yoga then have a relaxing coffee with my wife, Margot.
THE BIGGEST INFLUENCE IN MY LIFE: My dad was probably the biggest influence in my youth, but I’d say that my wife Margot would be my biggest influence as we discuss and bounce ideas.
THE FUNNIEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME WAS… funny, but not funny: Running down Paxton Street at sunrise with a friend many years ago, a car turned the corner toward us. Ian ran to the left and I to the right causing us to collide and collapse on the road directly in front of the car. Fortunately, the car stopped and we lived to run another day!
SOMEONE FAMOUS I MET WAS: Sporting greats: Robert De Castella, Steve Moneghetti, Kerryn McCann and Clint Robinson.
MY MOTTO IS: You can never have enough carbs!
