Our Dental Team
Dr Prue King BDS
Dr Prue King graduated from Otago University (NZ) and moved to Sydney from Wellington, NZ, where for many years she ran a busy integrative dental practice. Prior to that she worked in general practice in London where she was first exposed to many of the holistic concepts which form the basis of her practice today.
Lotus Dental is the culmination of a passionate vision she held for many years: a practice dedicated to integrative dentistry in the context of holistic health, extending beyond the normal “square box” of dentistry… Summed up as
‘Dentistry with the whole body in mind’
