Ruchi Chandra

Stars of The Border 2022

My Story...

Ruchi was born and raised in the beautiful coastal town of Goa-India and moved to Australia in 2008. Ruchi completed her Dental Training in Melbourne and has been living and working on the Border for the past decade. 

 

This has been a fulfilling journey, both professionally and personally for Ruchi. She worked for Albury Wodonga Health for about 8 years as the Principal Dentist. For the past two and a half years, Ruchi has owned her private practice - The Tooth Affair: Dentistry from the Heart and is absolutely enjoying it.  

 

Ruchi is married to her amazing husband Amratash and blessed with a nearly 5-year-old daughter, Annika. Ruchi has been practicing dentistry for the past 12 years and in this time, she has treated hundreds of patients with either oral cancers or patients with oral complications of radio or chemotherapy.  

 

Ruchi worked at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre which was very touching and rewarding for her. She is still in touch with some patients from there and feels so happy that they are doing so well. 

 

Ruchi has lost two of her uncles to blood cancer which were undiagnosed due to lack proper diagnosis which has left her family devastated. She feels extremely empathetic in providing care to cancer affected patients as they demonstrate the power of being positive and strong willed in the most difficult time of their lives.  

 

I find this incredibly gratifying which leaves me to do more for these patients,” Ruchi saidMany a times I have not charged patients facing financial hardships which has been my little way of contributing. 

 

Ruchi has made numerous contributions through local and international charities. Her patients, relatives and friends affected with cancer have been her inspiration and have made Ruchi realise the bigger picture in life. Ruchi loves the Albury Wodonga community believing the people here are just gentle beautiful souls and she feels extremely honoured and privileged to be part of this exciting fundraiser for cancer research and prevention.  

 

Even though it will not bring back our loved ones, it will help to save someone else’s life,” Ruchi said. 

Thank you to my Sponsors
