Dr. Nikakhtar has worked in a variety of different dental clinics and with a wide range of industry professionals. Dentistry and a wider holistic approach to overall health are not only two aspects of his professional career, but they also act as a foundation for his life and the choices and habits he practices. His experience in different clinics has also allowed him to accrue a diverse clientele over the years, ranging from all ages and with a multitude of dental and oral needs, that has only strengthened his wealth of professional knowledge and experience.
In 2013, Dr. Nikakhtar experienced a cancer scare. The silver lining, however, was the way he adopted a holistic and minimally invasive approach to all of his patients moving forward. His attention to detail, his overall outlook, and inclinations of really listening to his patients while wanting to genuinely improve both their oral and general health, have brought him to the pinnacle of Australian Dentistry.
Dr. Nikakhtar grew up in the city of Perth and it was there that he graduated from the University of Western Australia. He is of Persian (Iranian) heritage, and in his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his wife, travelling, playing basketball, and trying his hand as an amateur chef.
