Meet the Wattle Grove Dental Centre Team

Silas Prashant, Principal Dentist

Drawn to Helping Others

Dentist Wattle Grove, Silas PrashantWhen he was a boy, Dr Silas found the science of biology fascinating. He knew from an early age that he would want to work in the health care field in some capacity. He loves bringing a smile to someone’s face. Whether it’s relieving a patient from a toothache or helping a patient to smile with confidence, Dr Silas finds it gratifying to assist others. He prides himself on the quality of his work and being able to maintain the comfort of his patients throughout dental procedures.

Education and Professional Development

In 2001, Dr Silas graduated in India with his BDS. Desiring to strike a better balance between work and family, he relocated to Australia and took the Australian Dental Council Examination. He has been a member of the Australian Dental Association since 2007. When he’s not at Wattle Grove Dental Centre, he is helping patients at our Cedric Street Dental Centre and Altone Dental Centre sister sites.

Because dentistry is a career that requires lifelong learning, Dr Silas goes above and beyond to ensure that he is continually upgrading his skills. To provide the very best dental care to his patients, he takes professional development courses two to three times a year. These courses include restorative, adhesive and CEREC (same-day ceramic restorations) dentistry.

Dr Silas is also currently furthering his studies in implant dentistry. Additionally, he is working on obtaining certification to provide Invisalign® aligners, a clear alternative to metal braces. With these new offerings, there will be no need to drive all over town to get the treatment you need. Consider Wattle Grove Dental Centre your one-stop destination for all your dental needs!

On a Personal Note

When he’s not at the practice providing high-quality dental care, Dr Silas enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife and two young sons. He enjoys gardening and has recently taken up fishing.

Dr  Mohammed Yusuf Meet Dr Mohammed Yusuf, General Dentist

Dr Mohammed Yusuf was inspired to become a dentist after having orthodontic treatment as a child, which he found fascinating and enjoyed the gentle care he experienced from his practitioner.

Dr Mohammed Yusuf graduated from Griffith University in 2015 with a BOH Dsc and a GDipDent (QLD). Each year, he continually participated in professional development courses in order to provide patients with the best possible care. His favourite part about being a dentist and working at Wattle Grove Dental Centre is helping patients improve their confidence and self esteem while putting them on the proper path to excellent oral health.

Outside of the practice, he enjoys playing soccer (go Manchester United!), going to the gym and travelling. Get to know more about him when you visit us for your next appointment.
