In 2022, Dr. Nadian achieved a significant career milestone by completing her paediatric dentistry specialty at the University of Western Australia. Since then, she has focused her practice on providing specialized dental care for children, particularly those with special needs and those facing complex dental conditions.

She values the involvement and choices of parents in their children's dental treatment, ensuring they are an integral part of the decision-making process. Her practice is equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, reflecting her commitment to thorough and accurate diagnosis and treatment.
Beyond her clinical practice, Dr Nadian enriches the field through her role as an Associate Clinical Lecturer at the School of Dentistry at The University of Queensland, where she imparts her knowledge and clinical experience to future dental professionals.
Renowned for her skill and compassion, Dr. Nadian's dedication to paediatric dentistry is evident in her meticulous care for her young patients and their families, making her a respected and beloved figure in her community.
Paediatric dentists are trained to provide comprehensive dental care tailored to the unique needs of children, including those with special needs such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
Children with special needs or certain medical conditions require specialised dental care because they may have an increased risk of oral diseases. Paediatric dentists are skilled in diagnosing and treating conditions like early childhood caries, developmental abnormalities of teeth, and gum diseases.
Children with ASD, ADHD, or kids with anxiety require special behavioural approaches. Paediatric dentists use techniques like 'tell-show-do', positive reinforcement, and, when necessary, sedation dentistry, including laughing gas and sleep dentistry, to ensure a comfortable and successful dental visit for children.
For children who cannot tolerate dental treatment in a conventional setting due to very young age, severe anxiety, behaviour, or special healthcare needs, paediatric dentists are trained in sedation techniques and can perform procedures under general anaesthesia.
Severe Tooth Decay or Cavities: This is the most common problem in primary teeth. When decay is extensive or the child is not cooperative, treatment under general anaesthesia may be required.
Dental Infections or Abscesses: These require immediate attention and can be challenging to manage in a traditional setting, especially if the child is in pain or uncooperative.
Dental Trauma: Injuries to the teeth and surrounding oral structures might need immediate and comprehensive treatment, often facilitated by sleep dentistry.
Congenital Dental Anomalies: Some children are born with dental anomalies that require complex and lengthy treatment procedures, making sleep dentistry a viable option.
Children with systemic diseases like heart conditions, bleeding disorders, or immunocompromised states need specialised dental care. Paediatric dentists coordinate with other healthcare providers to manage these patients safely.
Paediatric dentists are adept at managing dental injuries, which are common in childhood, ensuring appropriate immediate and long-term care.
They use materials and techniques suited for primary teeth (like stainless steel crowns and Zirconia dental crowns) and emerging permanent teeth.
Children with specific conditions like cerebral palsy, congenital heart disease, cleft lip and palate, or those undergoing chemotherapy also greatly benefit from a paediatric dentist's expertise. These specialists are adept at modifying their approach to suit each child's physical and emotional needs, ensuring effective and compassionate care.
