Dr Oyku Dalci
DDS, PhD, Senior Lecturer in Orthodontic
Dr Oyku completed her dental training in 2000 and since she always had a passion for orthodontics, she pursued specialist training in orthodontics and graduated in 2007 from Ankara University in Turkey.
She always wanted to be an academic, so she worked as a Lecturer in Orthodontics at Near East University in Cyprus. Later she moved to Australia in 2009 and continued her academic career at the Discipline of Orthodontics.
That's when Drs Nour and Oyku met back in 2009, while they were both teaching at the University.
Oyku is still involved with this role as a Senior lecturer and Orthodontic Course Coordinator as well as her private work.
She is a member of the Australasian Orthodontic Board Advisory Committee, Sydney Dental School Learning and Teaching Committee, Sydney Orthodontic Advisory Committee, and the Australian Orthodontic Education Committee.
Dr Oyku's biggest passion is treating patients with skeletal malocclusions, to not only improve their bite and give them an amazing smile, but also to help improve their function. She has also been working as part of a multidisciplinary team of medical and dental professionals that manages adult and paediatric patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnoea since 2009.
She has published more than 40 scientific articles in the fields of orthodontics and Obstructive Sleep Apnoea and is an invited speaker nationally and internationally.
Dr Oyku has an excellent eye for detail and symmetry, which is very important for excellent orthodontic outcomes. She has been named "the eagle eye" or "the detailing queen" by her students and staff as she is so particular and always strives to give the most amazing smile and occlusion to her patients.
When she is not busy with her teaching duties at university or providing care for her patients, she loves spending time with her family and friends and travelling.
