During those three years of full-time specialist orthodontic training, Dr Shailendran presented his research work at the American Association of Orthodontists conference, the Australian Society of Orthodontists meetings and at the Orthodontic Society of Ireland conference. At that conference, he also secured a podium finish at the Seamus Keating Award competition.

Raised in India, Dr Shailendran moved to Australia in 2009. Outside the office, he enjoys spending time with his young daughter, playing backyard cricket. He also loves to travel and explore new cultures around the world.

Practicing orthodontics enables Dr Shailendran to watch his patients’ smiles transform right before his eyes. The most rewarding part, however, is becoming a part of children’s lives.

Dr Shailendran loves getting to know his patients’ families, their friends and their pets as he watches these children grow and helps them to develop healthy smiles.
