Dr Ludhara Hettiarachchy
Dr Ludhara brings a range of experience to Camberwell Family Dental after working 12 years in private practice. She is an University of Adelaide graduate and is a member of the Australian Dental Association and the Australian & New Zealand Society of Paediatric Dentistry.
Ludhara understands that most people would avoid the dentist, so with her care and gentle manner she endeavors to make patients feel comfortable and well informed. Also she offers other options to help make your appointment as enjoyable as possible which include nitrous oxide sedation (happy gas) for both adults and children.
‘I believe one of the key factors of being a good dentist is diagnosing a problem before it arises and ensuring that the patient’s concerns are addressed at every appointment.’
Ludhara takes a holistic approach to dental treatment and understands the importance of oral health education. She enjoys working with children, special needs and anxious patients; along with cosmetic dentistry.
In addition Ludhara has been involved in several dental volunteering projects in Cambodia, Sri Lanka, ADA adopt a patient and the Special Olympics- offering dental services for special needs patients.
Outside of dentistry Ludhara loves travelling with her family and 2 dogs!
