Dr. Monika graduated from the University of Adelaide. She relocated to Sydney in 1997 and has worked and lived in the Sutherland Shire ever since. With a genuine love of dentistry, Dr Monika is dedicated to her profession and aims to provide her patients with an enjoyable and relaxed dental experience. Dr. Monika is a member of the Australian Dental Association and is fluent in Polish. Outside of dentistry she is most passionate about her family, good food and the outdoors.

Dr Chris Warren

Dr. Chris obtained his Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the University of Sydney in 2004. He has worked in private practices in Wollongong, Camden and the Shire since graduation.

Chris has had a role as Clinical Associate Lecturer at the University of Sydney, tutoring dental students in both restorative and paediatric dentistry. Chris’ interests are in restorative dentistry, endodontics, implant surgery and dentistry for children and those with special needs. Chris’ calm and caring nature has led to him converting many a self-confessed “dental phobic” patient into a happy, regular attender!

Chris has been a regular dental volunteer at the Angkor Hospital for Children in Siem Reap, Cambodia. He has also enjoyed his involvement as a dental volunteer with both the Australian Red Cross and Special Olympics International, having been to several events with the Special Smiles program. Chris served as a volunteer in the Theresa Park Rural Fire Service for many years, and most recently, as a guide runner for Achilles Australia. As a father of three children, he understands the importance of taking an active role in his local community. When Chris isn’t working, he can be found kid wrangling, cooking, or running trails (not all at the same time!).

Dr. Mikaela is a general dentist who is passionate about minimal intervention dentistry and oral health education. She enjoys treating patients of all ages and aims to always make patients feel welcome and comfortable whilst at the dentist. For the past five years she has worked as a general dentist in North Queensland, with experience in private and public dental clinics.

Born and bred in North Queensland, Mikaela completed her Bachelor of Dental Surgery at James Cook University in Cairns, and last year also completed a Masters of Public Health, majoring in Health Promotion.

A recent resident to New South Wales, Mikaela moved to Caringbah with her partner Luke and their dog Bella. Outside of work, Mikaela can be found exploring all that the Sydney region has to offer and walking her dog at the Cronulla esplanade.
