L&R Dental

Priyanka Vanama

Oral Health Therapist

Priyanka is our Oral Health Therapist who completed her bachelor’s degree at Central Queensland University in Rockhampton. She was originally raised in New Zealand and completed both her primary and secondary schooling there, before moving to Australia.

After studying some psychology at Griffith University, she realised her interests lay elsewhere and she decided to pursue a career in the dental industry as an Oral Health Therapist. 

Her passion is to work with children and adults in reducing their fear of coming to the dental practice and ensuring that they leave with the thought of visiting again.  Prevention has always been her main focus, identifying and dealing with the underlying problem before it gets worse.

Joining the L&R Dental team was an easy decision as everyone shares similar values and strive for patient comfort. When she isn’t working with teeth, Priyanka loves to bake, binge watch Netflix shows, sew and explore the parks in Toowoomba.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

We will continue to take extra initiatives to ensure we keep our patients and team members healthy. We thank you for your cooperation with these protocols including answering pre-appointment screening questions, use of alcohol based hand rub and temperature check on arrival and EFTPOS payments.
