I pride myself in providing my patients with a comfortable, gentle and painless dental experience. Sitting in the dental chair isn’t a very empowering experience, and my job is to ensure that you know and feel like you are in total control. My patients come to me knowing I have their best interests at heart.
My name is Darshini Ratnaraj and I am originally from Singapore. I moved to New Zealand in 2005 to pursue Tertiary education, and it was the best decision I ever made. I graduated from the University of Otago with Bachelor of Biomedical Sciences in 2008 and a Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 2012.
I started working with Smile Dental in 2013, and have never looked back. Dentistry is my passion and I take pride in what I do. Alongside providing a full range of General services, I have a particular interest in cosmetic treatment. I
enjoy giving people an amazing smile because with that comes the confidence to excel in other areas of life. Dentistry is always changing, and I attend various courses throughout the year to ensure that I am up to date with the latest technology and best practice Dentistry.
In my free time, I enjoy practicing Yoga. It keeps me positive, focused and gives me the energy to do what I do daily.

Dr. Darshini made my experience such a pleasure to go to the dentist, I had not been to for about 20 years and really needed to go, everytime I made an appointment I had to cancel at the last minute cause I just could not go in… about a year ago I just did it and met Dr. Darshini and she was just so lovely, she knew I was nervous, I walked out of there after having a clean and a wisdom tooth removed and have never looked back, I am now so happy to go back and see her anytime.“I pride myself in providing my patients with a comfortable, gentle and painless dental experience.

The whole experience was pain free, and Dr Ratnaraj followed up with me after each appointment to check everything was ok with my tooth. I would highly recommend Dr Ratnaraj to my friends and family. : )
This has been the best dental experience I have ever had in my whole life. I have already recommended to a lot of people at my workplace to come and experience the bliss & having a dental procedure without pain and discomfort.
I found this dental clinic quite handy for my needs :
1. Don’t have to pay for a quote first ;
2. Winz approved ;
3. Explains simply and clearly for a chicken like me ;
4. Actually restored my faith back into dentistry ;
5. Like the dentist & assistant excellent work .
Well informed about procedure. They were both very friendly and made me feel very comfortable. Overall it was a great experience.
I would like to give a massive thumbs up and thank you to Dr Darshini Ratnaraj from your Manukau branch! She was so attentive and caring with the way she dealt with my complicated and traumatic tooth extraction. She also went above and beyond the call of duty when she called me the next day to check how I was feeling. She really made me feel like a real person and not just a number to be dealt with and forgotten. Don’t be fooled by the slightly dated look of the practice itself. There’s a real gem of a dentist hidden within!
