Loula Konidaris

I finished my Bachelor in Dental Science from the University of Melbourne in 1989 and began practising in Hawthorn and Richmond.

In 2004 I set up a family practice with my husband in High Street Malvern.  Two years later a second dental practice was set up in Glenroy after being approached by a long-term retiring dentist.  I enjoyed building a good relationship with my patients of which many I still treat today.

In 1998 my first daughter was born and after taking twelve months off I returned to practice three days a week.

My second daughter was born in 2002 and after running the Malvern practice for over ten years the decision was made to sell the practice.  This allowed me to focus on my clinical dentistry and my family.

I was then invited to work with a senior dentist and his team in Sandringham.  During my ten years in Sandringham I continued attending courses and refining my skills in all areas of dentistry.  I also took part in the Dental Foundation program offering free dental treatment to the homeless.

I joined a city practice in 2012 and enjoyed using my skills acquired after many years of practice in a caring and compassionate manner.

I am happy to now be practicing in a family practice whilst also studying a Master of Health and Medical Law at the University of Melbourne part time.
