Dr Reena Ohm is a Specialist Prosthodontist and Associate Lecturer at the University of Queensland. She has vast experience in both private & public settings having worked in the Emergency & Trauma departments in Westmead Hospital, Sydney Dental Hospital & Wollongong Hospital before moving exclusively into private practice. She was featured in the Illawarra News for her service to the local community in the Sydney West Area Health Service. 

With her keen interest in advanced restorative techniques and oral rehabilitation, she completed her Doctor of Clinical Dentistry in the specialty of Prosthodontics at the University of Queensland. Reena presented her postgraduate research on “Accuracy of intraoral scanners in making digital impressions in partially edentulous ridges” at the 2022 AANZP Biennial Meeting. She was awarded the Research Medallion for her thesis presentation by the Australian Osseointegration Society. 

Being passionate about teaching the next generation of dentists, she is involved in teaching undergraduate students at the University of Queensland in addition to her time in private practice. She believes that along with providing high-end prosthodontic care, motivating patients to make holistic lifestyle changes is key to long term treatment success. Her treatment planning involves a collaborative approach within multidisciplinary specialties to achieve optimal patient outcomes. This carries into her teaching philosophy, where she uses an interactive pedagogical approach to foster self-reflection and critical thinking.

Reena’s interests include digital technologies in implant planning, fixed and removable prosthodontics, 3D printing, periodontics, occlusion, and contemporary ceramics. She is a member of the Australian Prosthodontic Society (APS), Australian Dental Association (ADA), The Academy of Australian and New Zealand Prosthodontists (AANZP) and the International College of Prosthodontists.
