...unlike any dental practice you’ve ever visited.

One of the things I love most about dentistry is helping you through the whole process in a way where you are listened to and supported, where I’ve earned your trust and helped you be involved in achieving a positive outcome.

About Dr Karishma

Growing up in Fiji, I was always around healthcare. My dad’s a doctor, and my mum’s a dentist, and I grew up knowing that I too wanted to work in healthcare.

So I was thrilled when, at 18, I received the news I’d been accepted to study dentistry at The University of Melbourne.

Fast-forward to 2002, after graduating with a Bachelor of Dental Science, I moved away from the city to work in Wangaratta. It was during this time that I fell in love with the friendly people and the slower pace of living in the country. 

We moved to Ballarat in 2006, and I experienced the joy of serving the people of Ballarat in my own practice for 11 years. We sold K & L Dental three years ago, and since then I have worked under the mentorship of industry-leading dentists in both small and large practices, helping to restore my patient’s smiles.

Since graduating 19 years ago, I have fallen in love with the combination of providing healthcare while meticulously planning the finer details of smile makeovers and orthodontics, and truly enjoy the artistic elements of designing new smiles for my patients.

I’ve undertaken further clinical training with world-renowned educators like Dr Pascal Magne, who focuses on minimally invasive treatment options that restore teeth in a strong, natural way.

At the end of the day, my goal is to help my patients achieve great outcomes, in an environment that is safe, empowering, and judgement-free.

And I’d love to help you too.
