Dr Elnaz (Ellie) Borhani
DDS- ADC Cert- Children Dentist
Dr Ellie graduated in 2006 with a Professional Doctorate in Dental Surgery in Tehran, Iran. From a very early stage in her career, she developed an interest in children’s dentistry.
She understands how to speak to children about their teeth using words they understand and can relate to, and how to avoid impressions and experiences that make the dentist seem intimidating or scary. She believes in a fun clinic environment to put children at ease and leave great memories. Opening Relax Dental Care has given Dr Ellie the chance to create a clinic environment based around this ethos.
If you would like to schedule an appointment with Dr Ellie after school, on Saturday or during school holidays, it is advisable to get in touch well in advance. These work hours tend to get booked out.
