Oral Health Therapist
Malavika Malhotra joined the Maven Dental New Farm team in September 2017 as a friendly and caring oral health therapist. Malavika graduated from Auckland University of Technology in 2011, having completed her Bachelor of Health Science in Oral Health. She began her career in dentistry working for the Auckland regional dental services in a government practice.
Malavika worked for a government organisation for 3 years while working part time on the weekends at a private clinic. After three years, Malavika entered into private practice where she continued to work until relocating to Australia in September, 2016. She worked in both private and public organisations in Australia before deciding to permanently continue practising in a private clinic setting.
As an oral health therapist Malavika is passionate about helping people maintain a sustainable change in their oral hygiene. She holds clinical interests in oral health education and the clenching/grinding of teeth, and regularly attends continued professional development courses to further her skills and knowledge.
Away from the practice, Malavika spends her time going for salsa dance classes, gym, hiking, swimming, reading and travelling.
