Adjunct Associate Professor Peter Duckmanton is the Senior Clinical Specialist in Endodontics at Sydney Dental Hospital and an Adjunctive Associate Professor with the Faculty of Dentistry where he has taught endodontics for over 25 years. His dental qualifications are from the University of Sydney. On graduation Peter entered the RAAF Dental Service where he was, at one time, the youngest Senior Dental Officer in the Service. He has been previously the Federal President of the Australian Society of Endodontology as well as the state president and secretary/treasurer of the NSW Branch of the ASE and the Secretary/Treasurer of the Australian and New Zealand Academy of Endodontists. He holds fellowships from the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons, the International College of Dentists and the Pierre Fauchard Academy and is a federal councillor of the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons.

Peter is on the review panels of the International Endodontic Journal, The Australian Endodontic Journal, Dental Traumatology and Special Care in Dentistry. Peter was a major organizing force for the first and second Trans-Tasman Endodontic Conferences and was on the organizing committee of the third. He has lectured and given hands-on courses throughout Australia, New Zealand, the UK and Sweden. He has most recently been involved with epidemiological studies on endodontics in various Australian populations and since 2008 has been an Honours Supervisor for 35 Bachelor of Dentistry students at the University of Sydney.

He is known as an entertaining lecturer with a very practical approach but has a rather different sense of humour. Interestingly, he is also a world recognized authority on the literature of Tri-ang Railways having contributed to a book on the subject.
