Meet Dr Himashi Amarapala (Dentist)

Dentist Ferntree Gully, Dr Himashi AmarapalaDr. Himashi joins the Lightwood Dental team with a passion for dentistry, at which she naturally excels. After completing her Bachelor of Dental Surgery, Dr. Himashi was offered a full scholarship for post graduate training at the University of Bergen in Norway, though she declined so that she could pursue a dental career in Australia. Dr. Himashi is currently a member of the Australian Dental Association.

Growing up, Dr. Himashi always enjoyed arts and crafts as well as the health field. This made dentistry a perfect fit for her, combining cosmetic aesthetics with science and health training.

As she puts it, the most fulfilling part of her profession is being able to help people who’ve entrusted her with their care.

She loves seeing the gorgeous smile on the faces of patients after completing a treatment, as well as helping nervous patients feel better and at ease about their time in our practice.

Dr. Himashi believes it is her duty to help patients understand the importance of maintaining proper oral health habits.

Outside of the Practice

When she isn’t crafting beautiful smiles in the practice, Dr. Himashi enjoys giving back to the community and working with low-income families in local dental clinics. She aims to treat each person she comes into contact with respectfully and compassionately.

Fun fact–Dr. Himashi sponsors a child in Kenya who has the same birthday as herself.
