William Pham (BDSc University of Queensland)

William promotes a relaxed and friendly environment for patients to openly discuss their dental treatment options and continually strives to achieve the best outcomes for all his patients. He enjoys all aspects of dentistry and has a special interest in orthodontics, dental implants, and aesthetic dentistry. William has an engaging and enthusiastic approach with kids, which places them at ease at their dental visits and feeling very comfortable coming back for their routine dental check-ups.

Nikhil Morriswala (BDSc University of Queensland)

Nikhil has built on his wide experiences having previously worked in both private and public hospital clinics before establishing Essential Care Dental in 2012 with William. He believes this experience has given him a strong foundation and understanding of all aspects of clinical dentistry. Nikhil has a keen interest in orthodontics (braces and Invisalign), aesthetic dentistry and endodontics. He is passionate about ensuring his patients, even kids, are looked after with utmost respect and sincerity and will always strive to do the right thing by them. When not at the practice, Nikhil enjoys spending quality time with his wife and daughter. He also enjoys sports at a socially competitive level which include soccer, tennis, and cricket.

Dr William Pham and Dr Nikhil Morriswala are the principal dentists at Essential Care Dental.

William and Nikhil met while studying dentistry at The University of Queensland (UQ) and became firm friends. They demonstrated excellent clinical ability and were motivated to achieve high academic results. They still have links to the academic community and gain great personal and professional satisfaction by encouraging the development of new dentists. Both William and Nikhil are UQ academic staff members and supervisors for undergraduate dental students.

Outside of their university studies, William and Nikhil soon discovered they had the same philosophy in dentistry as in life. They shared a desire to improve the world of dentistry and to embrace the world enthusiastically. As travelling partners they have visited Japan, Tasmania, Melbourne and Hamilton Island.

After working for Queensland Health, as well as in private practice, both William and Nikhil have gained extensive experience in all areas of general and preventative dentistry as well as emergency, restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Their contact with a wide range of patients has helped them learn what people want from their dental visit. Comparing notes about their clinical experiences, William and Nikhail became business partners and established Essential Care Dental.

William and Nikhil maintain their energy, enthusiasm and fitness by pursuing sporting and community interests outside of work. William enjoys the outdoors and maintains an active sporting lifestyle. He also enjoys spending quality time with close friends and family.

Nikhil enjoys many sports and is a member of his local soccer and cricket teams. He believes strongly in participation and is a very active member of his local and ethnic community.
