Dr Aushi Patel BDS, AIAOMT
Aushi Patel is the director of Bio Compatible Dentistry. She was born in Kampala, Uganda and spent much of her childhood growing up in Canada. Her teen years and formative education were in the U.K. where she was accepted into King’s College, School of Medicine and Dentistry. Aushi obtained her Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the University of London in 1995. She spent several post graduate years working in the hospital system as a senior house officer in oral and maxillofacial surgery. This is where her passion for surgery was ignited and her knowledge and understanding of dentistry, in relation to medicine, grew. Aushi also spent some time working in private practice in London just before moving to Sydney.
Soon after moving to Sydney in 2000 she was introduced to the concept of holistic dentistry. This resonated well with her knowledge of medicine and appreciation of natural therapies and their value in dentistry.
Aushi joined Bio Compatible Dentistry in 2003 and in a gradual process became director in 2007. In this time she has avidly studied nutrition, detoxification and many other concepts relating to holistic healthcare. She is extremely passionate about biological dentistry and works closely with some of the country’s leading holistic practitioners such as holistic doctors, naturopaths, acupuncturists, chiropractors and osteopaths to provide a true integrative approach and awareness of the intimate relationship between oral and general health.
Aushi is an accredited member of the IAOMT (International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology). She has been trained and tested in the basics of biocompatible dentistry, including current methods for safer removal of amalgam fillings. Ongoing she devotes time keeping herself and the BCD team up to date with latest scientific research.
As a result of her gentle approach and compassionate nature Aushi has had many years of experience dealing with nervous and anxious patients. Her personal goal for all her patients is to achieve a healthy mouth in harmony with the rest of the body. She is highly skilled in a wide range of procedures and in such a way provides a truly holistic approach to dental care.
