Dr Donny Mandrawa | BDSC (Melbourne) FICOI

Dr. Donny graduated from The University of Melbourne, School of Dental Science, in 1998. As part of his final undergraduate year, he was fortunate to be chosen to spend time at The University of Minnesota, School of Dentistry, learning advancements in paediatric dental care and oral surgery.

Being not just your average dentist, Dr. Donny’s approach is always beyond teeth and gums. His purpose in life is to make a positive influence in the health of our future generations, no matter how big, or small, that impact may be. For this reason, he has travelled extensively to acquire the knowledge and skills to achieve such goal.

Having two children of his own, Dr. Donny believes in laying down the foundation of health as early as possible. Health needs to be developed through ideal functions and holistic lifestyle choices, allowing optimal opportunities for every individual to reach their own maximum potential. Consequently, the main focus of his practice is in the dentofacial growth and development of children.

Through dentistry, Dr. Donny offers dynamic, educational, and preventative services, which assist children (and adults) in understanding and adopting habits and behaviours that promote health. Taking into consideration the importance of nutrition, airway, breathing, the craniofacial complex, neurology, and even posture, he applies his beliefs using scientifically- based therapies in orthodontics, orofacial myology, breathing retraining, laser and family dentistry.

In 2017, he co-founded mYofocUs Australia, with its first flagship practice in North Melbourne, offering unique paediatric care that focuses on tethered oral tissues (tongue and lip ties), orofacial myofunctional orthodontics, and Invisalign®. Through the mYofocUs Mini Residency Program and Courses, Dr. Donny also spends plenty of time teaching and sharing his knowledge and skills to dentists, bodyworkers, speech pathologists, lactation consultants, and other health practitioners nationally and internationally.
