Meet Dr Mandy Pabla (Dentist)

Mandy Pabla has always wanted to be a dentist ever since visiting the dentist as a child. She appreciates that dentists contribute to the overall health of the general community and loves helping improve the quality of life of her patients.

Since graduating from her dental studies in Toronto, Canada (Bachelor of Human Biology) and then obtaining a Bachelor of Dentistry (Honours) from Sydney University, Mandy has enjoyed caring for her patients, understanding and achieving the results they are seeking when they come in for dental visits.

She particularly enjoys working with and comforting patients with dental anxiety and believes The Smile Factory’s caring, modern and up to date practice creates a comfortable environment for them to move toward overcoming their dental anxiety.

Outside of the practice

Mandy is a mum to three beautiful children and enjoys outdoor activity with her family, such as swimming, travelling and reading.
