Doctor Ramya Thiyagarajan graduated with honours in her dental degree from the University of Otago in New Zealand. She then travelled and worked for many years in New Zealand, Australia and Brunei. While in Brunei, she re-established the Dental Department at the exclusive Jerudong Park Medical Centre. She turned the department into a very successful private dental centre, run by a team of highly regarded and skilled specialists from Singapore and the UK.
Doctor Ramya then decided to challenge herself further by completing a 3-year postgraduate Orthodontic specialist program at the University of Adelaide, Australia. During her time as a postgraduate student she received the J L Eustace Memorial Scholarship in Dentistry for her research on 3D imaging of dental models, part of which was carried out under Professor Kelvin Foong at the Dental School National University Hospital of Singapore. She was the recipient of the Australian Society of Orthodontists (Vic) prize awarded for the best clinically treated case by a postgraduate orthodontist. She has been recognised and awarded for the quality of her clinical cases by the Australian Orthodontic Board. While in Adelaide, Doctor Ramya taught in the undergraduate dental clinics and worked as an orthodontic registrar at Adelaide Dental Hospital.
Doctor Ramya holds professional memberships in the Australian Society of Orthodontists, the Australian Dental Association, is certified by the Australian Orthodontic Board and has completed examinations leading to specialist membership of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons. She is also trained as an Elite Preferred Provider for Invisalign and has been approved by Invisalign Australia.
Doctor Ramya likes to think of herself as a hard working, savvy and motivated clinician who is passionate about orthodontics and the positive impact she has on her patients’ lives. She also enjoys the business of orthodontics and strives to improve herself and her team’s efficiency of practice while providing the highest quality care possible.
Doctor Ramya is married with two beautiful and very mischievous children, Maya and Tharan. She relishes escaping into her favourite books when time permits, cooking up a storm (when the feeling hits) and trying (fruitlessly at present) to keep fit! As a family, Doctor Ramya, her husband Vish and the kids love nothing better than to travel, explore and holiday by the sea.
