Dr Carmine Camerlengo
Dr Carmine Camerlengo General Dentist Carmine was born in Adelaide and was already an avid Carlton Football Club supporter when he graduated from Adelaide University in 1977. Carmine moved to Melbourne in 1980 and commenced practice in Station Street Werribee.
In 1987, the year Carlton beat Hawthorn in the Grand Final, he relocated to 19 Princes Highway Werribee. Carmine’s interests at work are cosmetic dentistry and the chance to interact with so many different people. He is often heard to say “I will keep working as long as I enjoy coming in”. Outside of work his main loves are the Carlton Football Club but unfortunately success seems elusive and everything to do with soccer “World Football” (finally going to watch a World Cup live in 2014).
He also has an interest in racehorses, proudly breading his own thoroughbreds again. The gambling side of racehorses is from bad company and the equine appreciation is from his wife’s interest in horses from childhood and also her interest in painting horses. Family life has seen him raise 3 boys in Werribee, his eldest son is married and living and working in Hong Kong, the 2 other boys are making their way in life.
