Dr Pawan Bista
Thank you for your trust and choosing me to be your dentist. I am sure you would like to know a little bit about me. I completed Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 2006 from Kathmandu, Nepal. After a few years of private dental practice, I went to do PhD in pain Neuroscience from Germany and continued further research in the USA for 3.5 years. In 2016, I came to Australia to join the University of Queensland, and later in Melbourne and Monash University. I love to treat dental pain. My areas of interest include dental pain management, root canal treatment, and aesthetics restorations including crowns, bridge and veneers. I update myself with professional development courses regularly. I have published numerous original research articles in world renowned international journals. If you are interested, please read my current publication on how dental pain is processed by our brain and the ways to stop it.
