I have dedicated my entire life to Periodontology research and practice in Australia and the advancement of Periodontology as a profession. I am also highly committed to preventive dentistry and dental education and look forward to increasing engagement in these areas. I have 15 years of experience as a dentist and ten years of experience in Australia. My long-term plans include serving on an editorial board in Periodontology and writing books on the subject. It would be a special honor to be selected for a Master’s Degree Program in Periodontology that requires writing a thesis since this is very much in line with my desire to remain centrally involved with the academic aspects of Periodontology.
I passed the Australian Dental Council examinations in 2009. Since then, I have been practicing dentistry in Australia and overseas, operating my practice since 2018, having graduated from dental school in 2004. I have spent 15 years practicing dentistry and have completed extensive postgraduate training. I have studied under several world-renowned dentists. I completed post-graduate training at Latrobe University and a Master's class program at the Royal Dental Hospital of Melbourne. I also completed a Fellowship in Implant Dentistry in Miami, Florida.
My colleagues would describe me as a kind, caring, and compassionate dentist who enjoys helping her patients to achieve high standards of dental care by bringing my expertise to bear and giving my all across every aspect of general dentistry, including root canal treatments, Crown and Bridge, oral surgery and restorative dentistry and dental implants. I have extensive experience diagnosing dental problems and conditions and delivering comprehensive dental care. My patients highly valued me for promoting excellent dental hygiene through continuous education, encouragement, preventive measures, and general oral health care. I can work under pressure.
I see dental health as inseparable from general health. Performing most aspects of dentistry, I have treated over 5000 patients, including periodontal therapy (scaling root planning polishing) and maintenance and oral hygiene measures and treatment. I am accomplished in various aspects of Prosthodontics (Crown & Bridge, removable and complete dentures, implant supportive removable dentures), as well as Endodontics (Anterior and posterior), the use of rubber dam, apex locator, and rotary endodontics). I am particularly adept at surgical implant placement, restoration, and teeth whitening; I enjoy every aspect of my field, taking particular delight in preventive and minimal intervention dentistry. I am committed and driven; I always stay abreast of the literature and strive for optimal results for each patient.
I have particular research interests in Alveolar ridge preservation after tooth extraction, bone regeneration, and the effects of antiresorptive drugs such as bisphosphonates and denosumab. Now experienced in implant therapy and periimplantitis, I look forward to an in-depth exploration of the relationship between periodontal disease and other inflammatory diseases such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, cardiovascular diseases, and adverse pregnancy outcomes.
I could not be more dedicated to life-long learning and keeping up with all the modern advances in periodontics because I am highly dedicated to patients receiving the most up-to-date treatments. I regularly attend national and international conferences and contribute to research efforts resulting in implant and periodontal journal publications. I do this to maintain and extend a high standard of patient care.
I maintain an extreme interest in the training of new generations of dentists. My commitment to excellence in periodontal care includes staying current on state-of-the-art technology and facilities. I believe in providing patients with exceptional comfort within a friendly and relaxed environment while striving to educate and motivate them to maintain optimal dental health. My motto is pleasant service and positive outcomes.
I finished dental school in India in 2004. I have significantly benefitted from completing the University of Melbourne’s Master Class Program in Principles of Surgical Implant Dentistry and a Fellowship at the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine in 2016. A member of the Australian Dental Council since 2009, I also earned a graduate certificate in Oral Health from the Royal Dental Hospital of Melbourne. I thank you for your consideration of my application.
