Dr Sashika Fernando graduated from the University of Western Australia with a Bachelor of Dental Science in 2011. After working in rural Western Australia for a year in the public health system, Sash returned to Perth in January 2013 and commenced work at Leeming Dental Centre. Since then she has become a longest standing member of the Leeming Dental Centre team and loves treating the community and surrounds.
While Sash enjoys all aspects of dentistry, she has special interest in cosmetic dentistry, incorporating anything from teeth whitening and the placement of muscle relaxants and facial fillers, to crowns, veneers and implants, to create a healthy smile. She is currently a member of AADFA (Australasian Academy of Dento-Facial Aesthetics and Training) and has completed several courses relating to facial aesthetics and skin rejuvenation. She provides a complete approach to dental care, including the health and appearance of the skin and face, as well as the teeth, when treating patients.
Sash has also undergone further study with the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons in the hope of expanding her dental knowledge and enjoys keeping up with the newest technologies in dentistry.
While helping people achieve a healthy and aesthetic smile is Sash’s aim, her main goal is to minimize dental and facial problems in the future. By working with and educating her patients, particularly kids, she provides a preventative approach to dental care.
In addition to Leeming Dental Centre, Sash also works part-time at Swan Districts Dental Clinic, a government dental clinic situated in Middle Swan. Sash grew up and went to school in the Swan Valley and is happy to give back to her community by improving their oral health.
Although dentistry is her full-time job, Sash loves to dance. She currently competes at dance congresses around Australia and some of her competition videos can even be found on YouTube!
When she isn’t burning up the dance floor, Sash enjoys reading spiritual books, long walks in nature and going to the beach.
