    BDS, GradDipClinDent, DclinDent (Pros), MRACDS (Pros)

    Dr Sid Kothari is a registered specialist prosthodontist working alongside Dr Michael Mandikos. After graduating, Sid spent a year in private practice in a country town in northern Queensland and three and a half years in public and private practice in Canberra. Always up for a challenge, he pursued a Master’s degree in Advanced Dentistry from the University of Sydney in 2015 – a course that involved both clinical work and a research component, for which he undertook three systematic reviews.

    Equipped with the skills to read professional dental literature critically and apply that knowledge in clinical practice, as well as a hunger for more knowledge and the desire to gain and fine-tune additional clinical expertise, Sid enrolled at the University of Otago to study Prosthodontics. Sid started the program in 2017 on a prestigious Doctoral Scholarship, and his research project was on tooth bleaching. In 2019, Sid graduated from the program with a Doctorate in Clinical Dentistry as a Prosthodontist (Specialist) and published four research articles in various journals which include the Journal of Dentistry. Along the way he also attained Membership of the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons (Prosthodontist). Upon graduating, Sid practiced as a specialist Prosthodontist in New Zealand (Palmerston North) before joining Brisbane Prosthodontics with Dr Michael Mandikos.

    Sid enjoys teaching all areas of removable, fixed and implant prosthodontics. He taught in the undergraduate program at the University of Otago and has been invited to speak at a number of CPD events in New Zealand and Australia.
