Dr Bharat Agrawal

Dr Bharat Agrawal completed a Bachelor of Oral Health in Dental Science and Graduate Diploma of Dentistry at Griffith University, Gold Coast, graduating with multiple final year awards. His passion for aesthetic and restorative dentistry led him to complete a Masters in Aesthetic Dentistry with Distinction (MSc AesDent) through King's College in London. His final year dissertation looked at the effectiveness and longevity of take-home dentist prescribed tray bleaching techniques combined with a clinical audit.

Dr Agrawal has presented on tooth whitening, digital workflows, the alignment-restorative interface and the provision of Invisalign with a key focus on minimally invasive aesthetic Dentistry throughout Australia and in the UK. In 2018 he had a case report selected for publication by Invisalign as a clinical white paper which looked at combination aesthetic treatments including alignment, whitening, additive bonding and dentofacial aesthetic corrections using facial injectables. Dr Agrawal is actively involved in mentoring and teaching recent graduates. Currently in private practice on the Gold Coast, he is passionate about the paradigm shift towards minimally invasive approaches to comprehensive smile make overs.

Sharonne is passionate about improving the dental experience for all. She recently presented to over 5000 people at TEDx in Sydney and at the ADA congress in Adelaide amongst other dental conferences. This generated much media interest.
