Dr Stella Opulent Dental

Dr Stella


Dr Stella graduated from the University of Sydney with the degree Doctor of Dental Medicine. She completed high school and undergraduate degree in Canada but now she is deeply drawn by the beautiful Australian weather and is happily settled in Western Australia.

Dr Sella enjoys all aspects of dentistry and genuinely cares for her patients. She takes time to get to know her patients and treats her patients like how she would like her family to be treated. Seeing their faces after treatment gives her immense sense of satisfaction. Nervous about dental procedures? No worries! Dr Stella will try her best to make sure the experience is as gentle, painless, and relaxing as possible. Hopefully you would laugh at her jokes too.

Outside of dentistry, you would often find her playing board games, trying out new restaurants with friends, spending time with family, travelling, reading, gymming, making videos, and learning new skills such as Photoshop. Recently she also started taking interest in cooking too.

I graduated from UWA in 1980. I spent a couple of years working in other practices before starting up my own practice in 1984 in Mandurah. I moved to Mandurah in 1988 with my wife and at that time 2 children. I operated this practice in Mandurah for nearly thirty years before selling and retiring in 2013.
