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.
