Dr Sofie Bui completed her first undergraduate degree at the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy. She worked as a Physiotherapist for children with disabilities in Ipswich as well as in the geriatric and orthopaedic rehabilitation centres at the Sunnybank Private hospital and Liverpool hospital. She found her interest in dentistry after joined- multidisciplinary work with dental professionals treating patients with Temporomandibular joint disorders.
Following her interest, Dr Sofie completed her second graduate-entry dental training program to attain Bachelor of Dentistry with Honours at the University of Sydney. To broaden and consolidate clinical skills, Dr Sofie worked in various positions as a general dentist within Queensland Health, in private practices, as well as providing her services to the Australian Defence Force personnels in Canberra for five years. Realising that to better service patients is to continue further education, Dr Sofie undertook a further three years of intensive postgraduate doctorate training in the field of reconstructions (Prosthodontics), under the Australian Postgraduate Scholarship at University of Adelaide. The specialist training prepared her for a broader diagnostic and treatment skillset that Dr Sofie is now offering to residents in the Gold Coast and Northern NSW regions.
Currently registered with AHPRA, Dr Sofie maintains continuing professional education through staying updated with current dental literature and regular professional activities within the Australian Prosthodontics Society, Australian Dental Association and International College of Prosthodontist.
In keeping balance with private practice, she dedicates to clinical Prosthodontics teaching at the Griffith University Dental School. Outside work, she enjoys spending time with her young family and work as a volunteer advocate for human rights organisations.
