Wuchopperen Health Service Limited Dental Officer, Dr Manjunath Rajashekhar has been recognised by the highest dental body in Australia, Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons at a ceremony in Adelaide.
The Cairns based Wuchopperen Dentist says being recognised by his peers is deeply heartening and provides a platform for continuous professional development.
“It was a great honour to be accepted as a member into the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons. Being a part of such a prestigious organisation is a great opportunity to continue to improve our dental services, and ensure we are offering best-practice dental healthcare in line with the international industry,” says Dr Manjunath.
Dr Manjunath has a great passion for dentistry and believes prevention is the key to achieving positive outcomes for clients.
“We have been able to develop a great dentistry practice here at Wuchopperen, as we have integrated dental health into general health checks. It is a lot easier to work with a client to establish healthy dental practices than treat a client when it is too late,” says Dr Manjunath.
Dania Ahwang, Wuchopperen CEO says the recognition of Dr Manjunath is well deserved and highlights the key impact Dr Manjunath has had on the provision of dental healthcare to the Cairns and surrounding districts’ Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
“We are very lucky to have Dr Manjunath here at Wuchopperen working with and for our community. His passion and commitment to improving the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is exactly what we need in the community controlled health sector.
Prior to Dr Manjunath joining our team we were unable to integrate dental health into our holistic health care model as seamlessly as we do now. He, and our entire dental team have worked tirelessly with our clients to create positive change in their lives,” says Dania.
Wuchopperen provides a wide variety of dental services to our current clients including information sessions on preventative practices to keep teeth healthy.
