Whilst completing his postgraduate certificate Dr Bhupal gained vital experience practicing in both private practices and hospitals across London.

In September 2016 Sunveer’s dream to come to Australia came true when he was offered a position in the beautiful Northern Beaches of Sydney. At the time of flying to Sydney he and his wife were expecting their first child and so a few months after they arrived their little family grew. “We enjoyed being new parents with the sunny lifestyle of living in Dee Why close to the beaches and restaurants.”

The next part of Dr Bhupal’s journey brought him to the even more beautiful Sunshine Coast in May 2019, just shortly after his son was born. Sunveer and his family are grateful to be living in the serene, green backdrop that is Buderim where they look forward to spending time together as a young family by exploring the nature, coastline and sights.

Sunveer is looking forward to meeting his new patients at Maven Dental Maroochydore where he will endeavour to help you with all your dental needs as part of your overall well-being. As daunting as it can be, he always aims to provide a comfortable dental experience for his patients whilst being informative.
