Continuing a Family Tradition

Growing up around healthcare providers, Pavi knew early on she would enter the medical field. With a doctor father, uncles who were doctors and dentists, and a sister who is a dentist, she knew she wanted to work in healthcare.
Pavi trained overseas, finishing her Bachelor of Dental Surgery in India. She completed the Australian Dental Council examinations in 1995 and has worked at various private practices. Pavi knew she loved the Inner West area and wanted to have her own practice there. So, in 2005, when the opportunity arose to purchase an existing practice with a reputation for excellence, she jumped at the chance to buy Gentle Touch Dental.

“Dentistry proved interesting and fulfilling at the same time.”

Staying Informed & Being Active

Pavi is a member of the Australian Dental Association and completes many hours of continuing education each year. She especially enjoys full-mouth rehabilitation and cosmetic dentistry.

Pavi’s hobbies include fitness — anything from yoga to the gym and walking with friends. Her two teenage children keep her occupied with their various activities.

I like seeing how a patient’s life is improved at the end of treatment planning. They become more confident.
