Dr Sonia arrived in Australia on her own and with a dental qualification that was not recognised by the Dental Association.

Today she owns and runs multiple dental practices and she is here to tell her story - including washing dishes for almost no money !!

Dr Sonia is inspiring and energetic and appears regularly in women dental forums in Australia and NZ.

Her Mantra in life is “Do it”. You can always do it better and faster so do not wait, take the risk, take the plunge.

"Be scared, be nervous, be excited, be positive"

Her first taste of business was co owing a dental practice at the age of 24. Just 3.5 years ago she bought a business that was almost closing and she has built it up to a hugely successful 7 figure business.

Dr Sonia now owns three dental practices in south east Queensland.

Dr Sonia is here to change the way dentistry is perceived by people because she believes it does not have to be a nervous or scary experience.  She has built her niche in helping people who are nervous or scared about visiting the dentist. Her clients like that she has the ability to connect with them where everyone else has failed. They say she makes them comfortable.

She says the secret is :

if you feel comfortable with someone and trust someone, you create a long-term relationship with people.

She is here to create fans not clients.

Clients even travel from remote area of Western Australia just to see her. She has built her business on strong patient relationship and trust.
