My name is Dr Christine Premdas-Rogers. I have 32 years’ experience in dentistry, including 22 years as an endodontic specialist in the UK and more recently in Australia.
I understand many patients will be apprehensive about seeing an endodontist. My aim is to provide my patients with a calm environment and a gentle approach to help put patients at ease. I know patients appreciate being well-informed about the endodontic process, including their treatment options, pain management, and how much it will cost.
As a specialist endodontist, my role is to help save teeth with a thorough and professional approach. The comfort and wellbeing of my patients is the number one priority, from the first contact through to aftercare.
On making a diagnosis, I will discuss with patients all appropriate treatment solutions for their tooth before any treatment is undertaken. Every patient is treated as an individual, managed in close collaboration with their referring dentist.
Throughout my career, I have worked in general practice, hospital service, and as a specialist academic and clinical lecturer both in Australia and the United Kingdom. I enthusiastically seek out opportunities to keep up-to-date with innovations in the field of endodontics.
I am delighted that my passion to contribute to my profession has been recognised with recent appointments to two Australian Dental Association NSW committees – Professional and Support Committee and Sport and Social Committee. On these committees, I aim to bring new ideas forward and be an active and thoughtful voice.
