Zara Taj graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Oral Health Therapy) from Curtin University in 2013. After relocating from Perth, Zara joined the Smile Solutions team as an oral hygienist and dental therapist. At Smile Solutions she collaborates with both general dentists and specialist orthodontists.
Zara particularly enjoys working with children. In 2014 she completed a three-month volunteer mission to Afghanistan, where she treated over 180 children. This was one of several volunteer dental health workshops Zara completed in remote villages throughout Afghanistan.
Whether she is treating children or adults, Zara’s approach remains consistently friendly and gentle – which is particularly valuable in working with anxious patients. She is a strong believer in preventative dental care and always strives to educate her patients in oral hygiene.
Zara is fluent in both spoken English and spoken Farsi.
