Meet our team
Dr Nitin Dhanani
On making Wollongong his home, Dr. Nitin has carved a place for himself in the hearts of Figtree Family Dental patients, many of whom have followed him from Dapto Cosmetic and Family Dental Practice where he worked for over seven years.
Now having established Figtree Family Dental, Dr. Nitin is capitalizing on his 15 plus years experience and realizing his dream: create the most advanced dental clinic in Wollongong and give his patient community access to a more comprehensive range of services.
I am passionate about what I do.
When I first started dentistry, I wasn’t aware of the difference it could make to a person’s life if done well.
My idea for Figtree Family Dental is the realisation of a vision I’ve had for many years: provide an aesthetically appealing, technologically advanced dental practice. Build it in the centre of town so it’s easy to access. Make it patient-focused and affordable, and provide the highest level of care. I’m proud to say that’s exactly what my team and I are doing here at Figtree Family Dental
