Dr Ankita Clarke
Dr Clarke hails from nearby Townsville and earned her Graduate Diploma of Dentistry in 2013 from Griffith University where she was recognised with an Award for Academic Excellence. She joined the GoldCity Dental Centre team in August 2016.
‘What I enjoy most about dentistry is being able to put a smile on my patients' faces – pun intended! Knowing I have been able to instil the importance of oral health and improved someone's quality of life or raised someone's confidence is what drives me.
There is a lot of negativity and anxiety associated with dental treatment. If I am able to give even one individual a positive experience and change their outlook for the better, I consider it a successful day!’
When she is away from the surgery, Dr Clarke likes to stay creative with DIY projects around the house. She also enjoys spending time with her family and soaking up different cultures through travel.
