Hi, I’m Mala, I graduated from Auckland University of Technology in 2011, having completed my Bachelor of Health Science in Oral Health. I started working at Kawana dental in 2020 and have loved coming to work every day here.
I began my career in dentistry working for the Auckland regional dental services in a government practice for 3 years and then moved to private practice while working part time on the weekends at a private clinic. After three years, I entered into private practice where I continued to work doing both therapy and hygiene before relocating to Australia in 2016. I have worked in both private and public organisations in Australia before deciding to permanently continue practising in a private clinic setting.As an oral health therapist I am passionate about helping people maintain a sustainable change in their oral hygiene. I hold clinical interests in oral health education and the clenching/grinding of teeth. I regularly attend professional development courses to further my skills and knowledge.Away from the practice I like to surf, sing, dance, read, gym, hike and watch endless Netflix.
