Meet the Team at Dental & Dentures on 88 Beach

We’re a family dental practice that’s founded on the principles of high quality care, great service and a passion for our patients. Although our facility is new, our team has years of experience when it comes to caring for smiles.


Dr Thahameena Khader, Dentist

Dr Meena KhaderDr Meena Khader sought out to become a dentist after a lifelong passion of wanting to make a difference in people’s smiles. As she grew older, her love of dentistry grew and led her to obtain her Bachelor in Dental Surgery, graduating in 2002.

Each year, Dr Khader attends various professional development courses in order to better provide the absolute best care for her patients. Recently, she’s enrolled herself in a Mastership programme that will focus on Aesthetic Dentistry.

For her, the most fulfilling part of being a dentist is the ability to help a patient feel confident about their new smile without limitation or thought.

When she isn’t crafting beautiful smiles, Dr Khader enjoys spending time with her family, travelling to new places and reading thriller novels. Get to know more about her when you book your next appointment with our practice.
