I am Padmaja Damodaran, the Hygienist at NDC Palmerston.
I graduated from TAFE SA. My profession started as a dental surgeon from India 25 years ago. Being a glob trotter, I travelled and practised dentistry in different parts of the world finally, settling down in Australia. I love my profession as it gives me the opportunity to meet people.
My hobbies are gardening, travelling and camping which the NT has given me the outback experience. I can also speak 7 languages other than English.
