Bio "Phil" is a former Australian professional tennis player. Dent's high water mark as a pro singles player was reaching the Australian Open final in 1974, which he lost to Jimmy Connors 7–6, 6–4, 4–6, 6–3. Dent was also the Men's Doubles champion at the Australian Open in 1975 (with teammate John Alexander), and the Mixed Doubles champion at the US Open in 1976 (with teammate Billie Jean King).

As well as his victory in the 1975 Australian Open doubles, Dent reached six more Men's Doubles finals in Grand Slam Tournaments, finishing runner-up at the Australian Open in 1970, 1973, and 1977, the French Open in 1975 and 1979 and Wimbledon in 1977. Dent was a member of the Australian tennis teams that won the Davis Cup in 1977 and the World Team Cup in 1979.

Before turning professional, Dent won the Boy's Singles titles at both the Australian Open tournament and at the French Open in 1968.

During his professional career, Dent won 3 top-level singles titles (in Sydney and in Brisbane, Australia, both in 1979, and the former also in 1971) and 25 doubles titles (also winning the 1968 Australian Hard Courts singles event in Launceston). His career-high singles ranking was World No. 12 (in 1977). Dent retired from professional tennis in 1983.

Since retiring as a player, Dent has settled in Orange County, California. His son, Taylor Dent, is also a professional tennis player and citizen of the United States.

Dent defeated Björn Borg in the third round of the Australian Open in 1974, which was the only time that Borg chose to journey all the way to Australia, during wintertime in his native Sweden, to play in the Australian Open.
