Dr Konna Chakravarty
BHScDent/MDent (Vic), ATCL - Associate Dentist
Emergency Dentistry | General & Cosmetic Dentistry
Dr Konna Chakravarty is a Gold Coast local. Born just around the corner in Bundall, Konna finished her schooling here before moving to Victoria where she completed her Bachelor’s degree and Master of Dentistry with La Trobe University. Whilst studying, Konna was one of ten recipients in Australia of the National Dental Research Fund Student Grant and was awarded the New Colombo Plan Scholarship in 2018.
Since graduating, Dr Konna has made it a goal of hers to never stop learning, helping her to provide the most scientifically advanced treatments and advice to her patients. She is currently an Affiliate of the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons (RACDS) and aims to work toward her Fellowship. Konna is also an Honorary Adjunct Research Officer of La Trobe University and is lead author of an ongoing project in Endodontic Radiography.
Dr Konna gained experience in Melbourne, regional Victoria and regional Queensland as a hospital dentist in Rockhampton, before moving back to the Gold Coast at the end of 2020 to be closer to her family. Dr Konna is proficient in oral surgery and is comfortable performing complex extractions and trauma management; however, she enjoys a balance of all aspects of general dentistry. In particular, Konna loves doing familiarisation visits with young children and treats the whole family, doing her best to save all teeth from thorough cleaning, restorative fillings, crowns and root canal treatment.
Konna has also completed her Associate Diploma of Speech and Communication through Trinity College London, which allows her to properly ensure every one of her patients fully understands their oral conditions and treatment options before deciding how to proceed. Because of her time in regional Australia, Konna is passionate about improving access to oral health care for all Australians’ and has been a part of multiple outreach programs for at-risk communities.
Konna is a very friendly and approachable person and a gentle dentist. Her ultimate goal is to make everyone feel comfortable and listened to and she does her very best to help patients with previous stressful experiences overcome their dental anxiety in a calm and pain-free environment.
In her spare time, Dr Konna can be found walking and playing fetch with her dog, Finley, and is a keen rower.
