Dr. Manju Palam BSc (Melb), BDSc (Melb)




Practice Principal


Manju's formative years were initially in Gippsland and then in the outer eastern suburb of Upwey, where his father worked as a medical practitioner. He was schooled at Yarra Valley Grammar and then the final two years of schooling at University High School. 

Manju graduated from The University of Melbourne Dental School, with electives at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital in London. He has had further training in Minimally Invasive Preventive Dentistry and Cosmetic and Aesthetic Dentistry in San Diego, California, and attended mini-residencies in dental implants, crown and bridge, dental aesthetics and root canal therapeutics both here in Australia and in the US. He is a foundation member of the Australian Dental Association’s Continuing Education Programme.

Manju has been accepted into the 2017 Masters Programme in Aesthetic Dentistry at King's College, University of London. This is a three year partime programme.

Manju practiced in Warrnambool, in South Western Victoria for 17 years, including a branch practice in Timboon with assistant dentists. Whilst in Warrnambool both Simone and Manju were actively involved with Rotary International and were benefactors of Brophy House (Family and Youth Services Charity).

Manju met Simone whilst they were both students at The University of Melbourne. They are married with two teenage children who attend local schools. Manju's main interest outside of dentistry is playing tennis either with his children or socially.
