Dr Kogulan Gunaratnam


BSc  BDS  MDSc  FRACDS(perio)

Kogulan received his undergraduate degree from the University of Sydney in 2000. He subsequently worked in general practice in Australia and as a Senior House Officer in Maxillofacial surgery England to gain experience in general dental and surgical treatments. In 2008 he completed a Master of Dental Science specialising in periodontics at the University of Sydney. During his specialist training, the main focus of his research was into studying the relationship between periodontal disease and obstructive sleep apnoea. He has presented the results of his research at a number of scientific meetings as well as authored several papers based on this research topic in Australian and International journals.

Currently, Kogulan is the vice-president of the Australian Society of Periodontology (NSW Branch) and the Secretary/Treasurer for the Federal Branch. He was involved with teaching at the University of Sydney up until 2012, initially as a Clinical Associate Lecturer and later as a Specialist Clinical Associate. Apart from his research topic, his clinical interests are in periodontal surgery and bone grafting. 

Kogulan has a friendly, caring and approachable manner, traits that make his patients feel at ease as well as fully informed about their treatment. As a regular international traveller, he travels regularly to major conferences in Europe and the United States to embrace new developments for his patients’ benefit.

On a personal level, Kogulan enjoys spending most of his spare time with his young family. He also enjoys photography, cooking and most sports, although more and more it is from the couch rather than on the playing field !!
