After graduating from Chaudhary Charan Singh University, India with a Bachelor of Dental Science in 2010, Neha chose to continue honing her skills at the University of Otago (New Zealand). Her career as a dentist has seen her manage two dental centres and lead a team of professionals in a busy hospital. Dr Suri also spent two years volunteering her dental services with charitable organisations and schools in India.

Dr Suri likes to involve patients in the procedure and educate them along the way to help them achieve their oral health goals. She enjoys the freedom and flexibility of her job. She loves the mix of creativity, detective work, and intellectual challenge that dentistry provides.
