Dr.Poornima Nayak. BDS
I was raised with a strong foundation in honesty and a commitment to serving others without bias. These principles have become deeply ingrained in my work culture and ethics. Moreover, I find profound admiration in the beauty of creation and am particularly captivated by the geometry and symmetry that surrounds us. This fascination has greatly influenced my artistic pursuits, and as a dentist, it has proven to be a significant advantage.
In 2001, I completed my dentistry education, and in 2004, I made the decision to move to Australia, which I now proudly call my home. Besides my professional life, I derive immense joy from spending quality time with my two kids and our beloved dog. However, my passion doesn’t stop there. Gardening has become a source of endless energy for me, and I happily devote most of my spare time to transforming my home into a lush indoor garden. My enthusiasm for gardening knows no bounds, and I find fulfillment in filling every available space with plants.
Another art form that keeps me mentally and physically fit is Indian classical dance. Engaging in this traditional dance form not only brings me joy but also helps me maintain a healthy lifestyle.

I began my dental career in Victoria, completing a Bachelor of Health Sciences in Dentistry and Master of Dentistry. In 2018, I moved to Canberra and started working at Positive Dental Health.
My focus is on creating a positive experience and developing ongoing relationships with my patients. I am passionate about the importance of maintaining good oral health, including its impact on overall well-being and mental health. To ensure that I always deliver the best and most up-to-date treatments, I prioritise continuous professional development and stay informed about the latest advancements and techniques in dentistry.
Outside of my profession, I find joy in spending quality time with my loved ones, including my new baby and beloved dog. Tennis is a true passion of mine as it helps me to stay active and unwind. Maintaining a healthy work-life balance enables me to provide high quality dental care, while also cherishing special moments with my family.

Passionate smiles and professional care are my forte! I’m here to make your oral health journey a breeze.
I graduated with a degree of Doctor of Dental Medicine at Centro Escolar University (Philippines) in March 2001 and completed the requirements of the Australian Dental Council as a dental practitioner. From general dentistry to orthodontics, I’ve got you covered. Before moving to Australia in 2009, I worked for different private practices including my own clinic overseas.
When I’m not perfecting smiles, you’ll find me delving into the world of Occupational Health & Safety. In March 2021 I completed a postgraduate degree in Occupational Health, Safety and Environmental Management from the Australian Catholic University.
Other facts about me is I am a dog lover and proud advocate for furry friends in need! I am missing the pure joy that my Peggy has given me. Moreover, I am a plant enthusiast and I see the the beauty of nature through my small pots of greenery in my home.

My interest in human biology led me to pursue a career in dentistry which is a unique blend of art science and biology that suits my interests. It gives great satisfaction to help people in pain and feels like a privilege to serve people.
After completing a Bachelor of Dental Surgery degree from India, I moved to Australia known for its quality of education for pursuing Masters in Public Health. I choose this field as it involves studies on preventing and controlling dental diseases and promoting oral health at the community level which fits well with my philosophy of prevention is better than cure. Having lived here for 4 years I fell in love with this beautiful country.
I strive to offer patients the very best in comprehensive dental care with a patient-centered, preventative approach. I like to create a calm atmosphere by fostering a good patient-dentist relationship based on trust and respect and am confident in delivering quality dentistry based on my skill.
My interests are in all aspects of general dentistry with a particular focus on the prevention of dental diseases that align perfectly well with the profile of Positive Dental Health.
Outside of Dentistry, I enjoy gardening, cooking, painting, and admiring nature.

“Smile is the curve that makes everything straight”.
