Dr Ghafournia places great importance on professional development and education after previously working as an assistant professor at Isfahan Dental School (Iran). She doesn’t see dentistry as her job but her passion and is always looking for opportunities to further her skills.

Maryam has a proven ability to communicate effectively with children and their relatives about treatment options and reassuring them about possible complications. She has experience performing complex dental procedures under general anesthesia and conscious sedation and treating children with special needs.

She has a keen interest in restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Dr Ghafournia believes today’s dentistry can offer more than just treating an infected tooth or restoring a broken filling. Dentistry today is also capable of giving her patients the confidence of looking good through a myriad of aesthetic and cosmetic dentistry procedures.

Away from the practice Dr Ghafournia loves exploring all that the Sunshine Coast has to offer.
