Suite 8 / Level 1 / 199 Sturt Road, Seacombe Gardens, SA 5047


Vai grew up in New Zealand and completed his Bachelor of Dental Surgery at the University of Adelaide in 2012. He went on to work Rural Western Australia before returning to Adelaide and began working with Better Dental. 

He loves helping patients to improve their oral health, and through this their general health. He has a keen interest for working with people with complex medical needs, anxious patients and those who require support in achieving optimal oral health. He is excited to introduce patients to all of the new technology at Better Dental, which makes our treatments even better and more comfortable. 

Vai is passionate about Oral Health and advocates for patients and the profession through his role as a Rural and Remote Councillor on the Australian Dental Association. He also volunteers his time and skill in remote communities in South Australia and in Aboriginal communities in the Northern Territory with the Royal Flying Doctor Service as a senior dentist.

Outside of work he is passionate about travel, fitness and fur-babies Silvio the Iggy and Boris the cat.
