Dr. Nitu Gupta BDS (Adelaide)

Nitu grew up in Gosford on the Central Coast and graduated from Adelaide University in 2001. She has worked in both the public and private sectors, treating a wide variety of people ranging from small children through to the elderly. The time in the public system included working in a special needs dental clinic for four years, where she was treating people who were homeless, had drug and alcohol issues, mental health issues, and from domestic violence shelters. This work was incredibly challenging and rewarding, and helped her develop excellent skills in working with children and people who are anxious about dental treatment.

Nitu and her husband, Will, have 2 little boys, who keep them very busy. They’re only 14 months apart, so she spends much of her days running around after the kids and stopping the toddler from sitting on his baby brother! Having her own children has allowed Nitu to have a completely different perspective and appreciation of parents, and also the challenges that many people face ensuring their kids have a healthy, balanced diet and are brushing their teeth well. As well as looking after the kids, Nitu is now back at work part time, 3 days a week.

Through NSW TAFE Nitu has taught Dental Assistants and Dental Students through the University of Sydney. She enjoys practicing all areas of dentistry and has an interest in minimal intervention, children and family dentistry. Her focus is on supporting our patients to achieve and maintain a life time of excellent oral health, through education, dietary advice and working in conjunction with patients to increase their awareness and understanding of their dental and general health. She enjoys providing a wide range of dental treatment from check- ups and professional cleaning, fillings, root canal therapy, minor oral surgery, crown and bridge work and cosmetic dentistry, including bleaching/tooth whitening. She finds building up relationships with her patients and their families one of the most satisfying aspects of her work.

Nitu spent 3 years working with refugee children in Villawood Detention Centre through a charity called ALIV and feels very passionately about refugees. In the last few years she has become interested in personal growth and development, and outdoor adventures. She climbed Kota Kinabalu in Borneo (just over 4000m) and spent 9 days rafting the full length of the Franklin River in Tasmania, which is now one of her favourite places on Earth. Given how much time she spent in the water, she’s very glad she can swim! Most recently Nitu did a 35km charity walk for the Mitochondrial Disease Association and raised money to help find a cure for this debilitating disease. Once her kids are a bit older she hopes to be able to share this love of the outdoors with them.
