DR UNAH THATO ENTAILE-TIDIMANE
Dr Unah’s personal characteristics and strength of having a gentle, humble and genuine caring nature and cheerful personality helps her patients to relax and enjoy the time spent with her.
She believes that good quality dentistry should enhance your lifestyle. It should allow you to be able to chew and taste the food you love. To smile, laugh and love with confidence.
Whilst she enjoys all aspects of dentistry, smile makeovers and giving someone the confidence to smile again are perhaps some of the most rewarding moments she has shared. For some it may be rejoining the workforce or starting a new job. For others it may be the pride to walk their daughter down the aisle. To feel proud and confident to smile again at their children’s milestones and memorable events. For others, it may be the appearance of a healthy youthful smile. Whatever the reason, she likes to share this journey with her patients.
Dr Unah has over 16 years clinical experience in government and private practice, having worked in Stanthorpe Queensland and Tuggeranong. She graduated from the National University of Ireland-Cork in 2005. She is a dentist in Canberra, registered with AHPRA. She continues to enrich her clinical skills by attending continuing professional development dental courses. She is currently studying towards her Graduate Diploma in Orthodontics.
Outside dentistry, she enjoys spending time with her husband and their three gorgeous children, two girls and a boy. She likes to cook, travel and read. She’d like to have more time to quilt
