Carina is truly a special human being and we asked her to share a bit of her story with us.


Carina we would love to know your story. 

 What are your loves and passions?

I am passionate about food, family and culture. I am passionate about helping others. I am passionate about my family and faith.

Passion is the energy that keeps us going, that keeps us filled with meaning, happiness, excitement and anticipation.

I am passionate about passion! I am also passionate about quotes, and the power of quotes that inspire people.

Love- seeing the good in everyone. Integrity; acting and speaking in accordance with your beliefs.

Forgiveness and kindness and treating others the way you would like to be treated. Also giving of my time, attention, abilities and treasures to help or enrich others.

One small action today makes more of a difference than you probably realise!


What do you enjoy doing the most in the world?

Looking into my children eyes, I see beauty, I see innocence…


Share something of yourself – a recipe, poem, painting or a favourite book.

Look for the good in others;

For beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness;

And for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”  – Audrey Hepburn


Tell us about your smile transformation.  How has it changed your life?

From the moment I walked through the doors of this awesome practice 20 years ago (that’s right!) my heart has stayed fulfilled! I commenced working as Dr. Golestani’s chairside nurse in the early years and then moved on to being his Front Office Coordinator. Staying challenged and engaged in your profession is incredibly rewarding for me as a staff member. I have enjoyed being a part of the Dental 359 journey, vision and progress over the years.

Beautiful teeth, while maintaining individuality – that’s what I wanted! The most important factor in the formation of a person’s first impression about us is a genuine and natural smile.

I experienced Dr Golestani creating beautiful veneers for clients and giving them the smile that they always wanted. I wanted to partake of their journey!  

After assisting with Dr Golestani and witnessing that he was a very skilled dentist, there was no turning back! I wanted Veneers!  Dr Golestani had the talent and passion to imagine my ideal smile and to make it look beautiful in reality. He created a wax up model of my teeth to show me what my end result would be, then the wonderful journey began… In just two appointments, I emerged with a luminescent, refreshed smile that communicated exactly who I was. It was special and like no one else!

If you want to improve your smile, Porcelain Veneers are a simple and effective option. Veneers are thin coverings that are placed over the front part of the tooth and they look like natural teeth, they can be used to correct chipped, worn, crooked, discoloured or mis-shaped teeth.

Were my Veneers worth it? Absolutely! If you are serious about having a great smile for the rest of your life that is 🙂
