Dr Minoo Vellani
I graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the University of Sydney in 1987. Upon graduation, I was offered a place in the Master’s program in Restorative Dentistry at the University of Sydney. In 1988, I was appointed a clinical associate in the Department of Operative Dentistry at the United Dental Hospital, Sydney and in 2004, I was appointed a clinical associate in the Department of Oral Surgery at Westmead Hospital, Sydney.
After running my own dental practice in Sydney for over 20 years, I took a particular interest in sedation techniques within dentistry and completed postgraduate training, culminating in a Graduate Diploma in Conscious Sedation and Pain Control from the University of Sydney. This qualifies me as a Dental Board approved Dental Sedationist – which I have held since 2006.
As a qualified and experienced dentist myself, I understand firsthand the challenges dentists face with anxious patients, complex procedures and/or multi-session treatments. Nowadays, as a sedationist, I bridge the gap between patient and dentist – providing a stress-free experience for patients, and simultaneously providing the perfect working environment for the dentist.
My passion for sedation dentistry is built on the belief that every person deserves to have a pleasant dental experience – every time.
My purpose is to deliver dentistry that is pain free, worry free and fear free, in a way that is smooth, efficient, comfortable and convenient – and above all else, tailored to the individual.
Just imagine a dental appointment that you actually look forward to!
I welcome the opportunity to talk to any patient who wants to explore how dental sedation can meet their needs.
