Dr Akshee ShahA Gentle Approach to Dentistry

“Dentistry has allowed me to combine my passion for art and physiology. I have always aspired to help people improve their health and well-being.

Dr Shah has been helping patients at Anchorage Dental Care for the last seven years, and she understands that visiting a dentist can be an anxious experience for some people. Her focus is on a gentle approach so that patients are more comfortable when they have treatment.

“What I enjoy most about Dentistry is nurturing a trusting relationship with healthy communication, so that I can meet each patient’s individual needs.”

Dr Shah received a Bachelor of Dental Science with First Class Honours from the University Of Queensland in 2010 with a focus on periodontology. She has a commitment to upskilling with the latest techniques, and is currently undertaking Comprehensive Othodontics at the International Academy of Advanced Dentistry (IAADent).
