Dr Suruchi Chetal


Dr Suruchi Chetal, or simply Suruchi to her patients, is the principal dentist at Tooth Smart Dental. With an inbuilt passion to help people, she wanted to become a dentist from a young age. Suruchi started her journey at the Melbourne School of Dentistry, where she became a fully qualified dentist. From graduation to this day she strives to have a positive influence on the lives of many by creating unique, beautiful and confident smiles. Suruchi worked in a successful private practice in Redlands for seven years, before completing her dream and opening Tooth Smart Dental, her own practice in Cannon Hill.

With her years of experience, she understands dental phobias and fears. Therefore, she takes special interest in helping patients overcome their dental anxiety by focusing on their specific individual needs. She always attempts her best to ensure each patient has a calm, relaxing and pain free dental experience.

She loves to educate and help patients achieve excellent oral health in a relaxed atmosphere and make positive changes in their life style to achieve optimal oral hygiene.

She regularly attends further dental educational programmes in Australia as a part of her continued efforts to provide the best care to her patients.

She is a member of Australian Dental Association. She enjoys all aspects of general dentistry with special interest in Cosmetic dentistry, Preventive dentistry, Restorative dentistry and Crown and bridge work.

When she is not creating beautiful smiles, she likes to spend time with her husband Gary and four year old son Keshav. She loves travelling, gardening, cooking and singing.

I have always wanted to care for others health and dental care has been something I take seriously, its always been a part of my life.  So I decided to become a dental nurse, helping others care and learn about oral hygiene was the perfect choice for me.  I’m to grateful Tooth Smart Dental for giving me a great opportunity, soon I’ll have my Certificate 3 in Dental Hygiene, an achievement I’ve been looking forward to for the last few years.

I have previously worked in childcare, so I’m especially good with children, which comes in handy working as a dental nurse.

In my spare time I enjoy shopping, watching the latest movies and playing with my two puppies.
