Dr Sandeep Arora is the principle dentist and founder of Dentessence. He has a wealth of experience through his 18 years of work in private practice and public health in Melbourne. Before starting his own practice, Sandeep worked at community dental services in Cranbourne, Fitzroy and Toorak. He gained further experience working at successful notable private practices in Point Cook and Tullamarine and also taught undergraduate dental students at Melbourne University.
During these early years of his career, Sandeep achieved a number of professional and personal milestones that made him the dentist and person that he is today. His endeavour to grow professionally led him to undertake post graduate study at Melbourne University with extensive training in implant dentistry, including surgical and prosthodontic aspects.
After completing his graduate diploma, and training with some of the prominent names in dentistry in Melbourne (like Dr Roy Judge and Dr Andrew Tucker), Sandeep was ready to tread his own path and established Dentessence in 2010. Since then Dentessence has grown rapidly and has a patient base of over 8000 patients. In this time, not just patients but a community has been created, the Dentessence family.
More recently, in 2015, Sandeep’s drive to continue to be at the forefront of dentistry and interest in smile correction through braces led him to undertake an American based 2 year certificate in orthodontics (Progressive Orthodontic Seminars). This course adds to Sandeep’s ever expanding tool-kit and helps him to offer his patients another important service, Orthodontics.
Sandeep’s constant desire for professional excellence ensures he maintains currency of practice through attending continuing professional development seminars. He regularly attends seminars, workshops and lectures on topics of his interest: implants, orthodontics, composite veneers, recent research in caries and Botox™ for TMJ.
It’s easy to see that Sandeep really loves what he does and his patients’ appreciate his calm nature, ease of explanations as well as his gentle approach and demeanour.
On a personal note, Sandeep is happily married to his beautiful wife Gina, a pharmacist by profession. She helps to maintain the practice’s family-based culture and is a strategic guide for Dentessence.
