Ramnish Verma Rochedale Dentist

Dr Ramnish Verma
(BOralH GDipDent)

Dr. Ramnish Verma grew up on Brisbane’s south side and later attended Ipswich Grammar School. Upon graduation he accepted an offer to study dentistry as a member of the foundation cohort at Griffith University, where he graduated in 2008 with a Bachelor of Oral Health in Dental Science and a Graduate Diploma in Dentistry.

Following completion of his tertiary studies, Ramnish accepted a position at a private practice in Ipswich, where he covered a wide range of dental treatments.  During his time, Ramnish realised his desire to start his own practice, becoming the principal Rochedale Dentist.  This ambition lead to the creation of Rochedale Smiles Dental Surgery where his primary aim is to provide a family friendly and personalised dental service to all patients.

Outside of dentistry, Ramnish enjoys spending time with friends and family, travelling, and working on his golf swing!
