Dr. Sudhir Shivanna


Graduating in 2002, I have always been interested in dentistry as a profession and have had a certain passion towards cosmetic dental care and root canal treatment hence continuing my studies in conservative dentistry and endodontics. Having completed my Masters in 2004, I was proud to have been one of the top 10 in the specialist university examinations. From 2007 – 2010, I was working as an assistant professor in JSS dental collage training dental students. I have been serving Mackay and the regional community since 2010. My main endeavours in work being gentle and precision.

Though I enjoy all aspects of general dentistry, I thrive to achieve aesthetic perfection also gaining a passion towards implant dentistry, partaking in further training from an implant institute in Sydney a few years ago. Having successful implant procedures since then using various implant systems including the need for grafting, additionally receiving special training in treating misaligned teeth using Invisalign technique.

I always believe it’s important to be up- to- date about recent advancement and trends in dentistry and therefore have been attending regular training to update my knowledge and to give the best results for my patients.

I fell in love with the simplicity of the people in Mackay, the farming community and their experiences, the beautiful weather conditions, beautiful weather and the huge range of fish species and the numerus spots in which to fish. I love spending every extra minute I find to do them.
