Dr Karthik Lakkaraju

Obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Dental Surgery in India with further courses completed in implants and orthodontics, Dr Karthik took his dental exams in Sydney in 2006. He worked both there and subsequently on the Central Coast of New South Wales. Opportunity took him to Queensland, where he was fortunate to work with great mentors, state-of-the-art technology and new techniques. It was a holiday that brought Dr Karthik and his wife to Perth, and they loved it so much they decided to stay.

Melding Medicine and Artistry

Dr Karthik credits his mother for his career, as he grew up admiring her love of nursing. But he wanted more than what traditional medicine had to offer and decided on the dentistry path as it weaves medicine with artistry and engineering. For Dr Karthik, dentistry is the complete package. He most enjoys the feeling he gets when he sees a patient achieve a beautiful smile, or can put an end to pain and increase the quality of life. He believes oral health is a mirror of general health and reflects the person’s personality and confidence.

Staying Abreast of the Latest in Dentistry

Dr Karthik keeps up to date with monthly courses in personal and professional development, whether in Melbourne, Sydney or overseas. Self-development is one of his biggest goals, to help his dental patients feel more comfortable.

Enjoying an Active Family Life

Outside the practice, Dr Karthik spends time with his two young boys, loves to travel with his wife and enjoys cricket and badminton.
