Class 1 Orthodontics: Canning Vale
Dr Gordon Cheung, the youngest of three children, grew up in north Auckland, New Zealand where he did all his primary and secondary schooling. Upon completing his secondary studies, he decided to not only embark on a career in dentistry, but have an adventure and move to Perth, Australia. Dr Cheung completed his Bachelor of Dental Science and Bachelor of Science in Dentistry (Hons) at the University of Western Australia.
After several years in general dentistry, he decided he would like to pursue further studies in orthodontics, which saw him complete the orthodontic speciality programme at the University of Sydney.
In his spare time, Dr Cheung likes to cycle and, whenever possible, travel. Gordon and his wife also have a daughter Chloe, who keeps them busy!
Dr Sanjana completed her Bachelor of Dental Science (Hons) at the University of Western Australia and subsequently worked as a dentist in Perth and Adelaide in a combination of private practice and public dental services. She then undertook orthodontic specialist training at The University of Adelaide.
During the three-year programme, Dr Sanjana has presented at various dental and orthodontic meetings. In 2018, she successfully completed the examinations jointly conducted by the Royal College of Surgeons (Edinburgh) and Royal Australasian College of Surgeons. Dr Sanjana is a member of the Australian Dental Association, Australian Society of Orthodontists and American Association of Orthodontists. She has completed research in the field of landmark detection in three-dimensional soft and hard tissue imaging and recently presented this research at The European Orthodontic Congress in France.
Dr Sanjana enjoys seeing the positive impact of improving the smiles of her patients, from children to adolescents and adults. In her downtime, she enjoys landscape photography, hiking, travel and spending time with family and friends. She has also recently developed a keen interest in gardening, but whether or not she progresses to a green thumb remains to be seen. Dr Sanjana is also multi-lingual and can speak Hindi and Bengali.
