Dr  Aushi Patel BDS (Lond), AIAOMT

Dr Aushi Patel is the principal dentist and owner of Anokhi Dental. She has been practicing dentistry for over 22 years, with more than half of this as a holistic dentist. Her fundamental belief is in the benefits of combining ancient wisdom with modern dentistry.

Aushi was born in East Africa and spent much of her childhood in Canada. After moving to the U.K. in her teens, she was accepted into King’s College School of Medicine and Dentistry. She obtained her Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the University of London in 1995.

She spent several post graduate years working in the hospital system as a senior house officer in oral and maxillofacial surgery. There, her passion for surgery was ignited and her knowledge of medicine and understanding of dentistry in relation to the whole body grew.

Soon after moving to Sydney in 2000, she was introduced to the concept of a holistic approach to dental care. This resonated well with her knowledge of medicine and appreciation of traditional medicine and its value in dentistry.

Aushi joined Bio Compatible dentistry in 2003 and through a gradual process became sole director and owner in 2007. Over this time, she has avidly studied nutrition, detoxification, traditional medicine and many other concepts relating to holistic healthcare. She is absolutely committed to biological dentistry and Ayurvedic philosophies. She works closely with some of the country’s leading holistic doctors, ayurvedic practitioners, naturopaths, acupuncturists, chiropractors, osteopaths and many more to provide truly integrative healthcare.

She is currently studying for an Advanced Diploma in Ayurvedic Medicine with the Australasian Institute of Ayurveda.

Aushi is an accredited SMART member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT). She has been trained and tested in biocompatible dentistry, including current methods for safer removal of mercury amalgam fillings.

Her gentle approach and compassionate nature have underpinned many successful years dealing with nervous and anxious patients.

Aushi is a member of the following associations:

  • Australian Dental Association (ADA)
  • International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT)
  • International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine (IABDM)
