Xuru (pronounced ‘sha-roo’) is our dual–qualified Oral Health Therapist with Adult Scope, who can provide preventive and restorative dental treatment to patients of all ages.
Xuru graduated from the University of Newcastle Bachelor of Oral Health program in 2013. She’s been practising as a Dental Hygienist, working closely with various general dentists and dental specialists in Sydney and on the NSW Central Coast. Prior to completing her Bachelor of Oral Health degree, Xuru was an experienced dental assistant with extensive knowledge in the industry.
Xuru is extremely passionate about providing quality dentistry, and so went back to the University of Newcastle in 2016 to further advance her studies in Oral Health Therapy to include restorative dentistry. This enables Xuru to provide not only preventive dental treatment but also advanced treatment such as fillings on all patients, including adults.
Xuru relocated to sunny Brisbane in 2018 with her husband and their three children, to devote her passion and love for dentistry to our patients in and around Sherwood. Xuru’s passion for her work shines through her smile and uplifting energy every time you see her. As Xuru suffered severe dental fear during her childhood, she is a very gentle and compassionate practitioner, especially for young children and patients with dental anxiety. She vows to create a positive experience for every patient, every visit.
Aside from being a workaholic and a mother of three, Xuru is also a fitness fanatic who enjoys her daily workout, karate and kitesurfing. We’re impressed at how she manages to fit all this into her busy schedule!
