Meet Dr Manika Manika, Dentist

Choosing the Dental Path

Dentist Wallsend, Dr. ManikaWhen Manika was in year 10, she had her first visit to the dentist, and it left her with a great impression. The dentist was kind and kept her surgery well-organised, and it influenced Manika to learn more about dentistry and eventually, to choose it as her profession.

She completed a Bachelor of Dental Surgery in India and later moved to Australia. She passed the Australian Dental Council examinations in 2012, then worked with the Port Macquarie Public Dental Clinic and Westmead Hospital. Since that time, she’s been in private practice.

I love making changes to a person’s smile that boosts their confidence. Others come in with pain, and the moment you start treatment, you can see that they feel better. I wake up every morning wanting to go to work, knowing I’ll help someone that day.


Staying Busy Personally and Professionally

When she’s not at the practice, Manika loves reading biographies and dental materials alike. She’s an outdoorsy person who enjoys bush walking, playing netball and making the most of her summers so that she can hibernate in the winter.

She’s a member of the Australian Dental Association and completes several continuing education courses each year to benefit her patients.
