A born and bred Territorian, Dr Kaejenn Tchia knew he wanted to be a dentist since high school. During his high school years, Dr Tchia worked as a junior dental assistant at K.E Ong & Associates Laser Dentistry, which is now Bupa Dental Casuarina, from 2011 to 2014.
After graduating from Darwin High School in 2013, Dr Tchia went on to earn his Bachelor of Dental Surgery at James Cook University in Cairns, Queensland. He served as president for a two-year tenure from 2016 to 2017 for the James Cook University Dental Student Association (JCUDSA Inc.) as well as national Rural Officer for the Australian Dental Student Association (ADSA) in 2016. Since moving back to Darwin, Dr Tchia has become Treasurer of the Australian Dental Association (ADA) NT Branch Inc.
Dr Tchia is known for his caring nature and his friendly and approachable demeanour. His favourite part of dentistry is working in a large team with other dentists and auxiliary dental professionals. He enjoys learning in a supportive team environment and working with others to provide holistic care to patients.
Dr Tchia’s philosophy on oral health care is that “teeth are for life” and designed to serve people from birth to death. With more adults keeping their teeth for longer he aims to promote preventive dentistry and good oral health, equipping his patients with the tools to maintain good oral hygiene and health throughout their lives.
In his spare time, Dr Tchia enjoys travelling and trying new food spots with friends and family. He is also interested in business and entrepreneurship and also launched a motivational coaching company, The Limitless Dentist, aiming to break the mental health stigma in his profession and help his colleagues eliminate burnout and master their mindset.
