Meet The Team

Varsha Shailendran

Varsha is our practice coordinator. Varsha holds a degree in accounting and management and joined Insight Orthodontics after working for several years in the education and retail sectors. She also has a dental technology diploma and is very interested in digital orthodontics. She oversees everyday activities and focuses on providing you with the best payment solutions and experience for our patients. Varsha has seen the transformation of patients treated by her hubby (Dr Arun Shailendran), which sparked her interest in joining as a Team member at Insight orthodontics.
Varsha is down-to-earth, gentle, and loved by all. She is very professional and assists Dr Shailendran in delivering quality results and experience at Insight Orthodontics. When not working, Varsha can be seen painting (she is an outstanding artist!), cooking, spending time with family and above all, playing with Benji (A cutie miniature schnauzer!).


Nykala is an Orthodontic Assistant at Insight Orthodontics. She has been working in the Dental industry since 2019. Over the years, she has gained many skills and had the opportunity to assist in many areas, such as oral surgery, IV sedation, Implantology, restorative dentistry, and hygiene. She has been working alongside Dr Arun for 18 months and loves all aspects of orthodontics. Nykala looks forward to seeing all the beautiful patients that walk through our doors here at Insight Orthodontics. Her goal is to give every patient, whether in the room or greeting at the door, a fantastic experience they’ll never forget. 
When she is not at work, you can find her at the gym training, outside at the beach, mountain climbing, camping/ doing anything adventurous and fun, eating lots of yummy food or spending time with her family or friends.


Kris is an orthodontic assistant at Insight. She has worked in the orthodontic industry since 2017 and looks forward to learning more about digital orthodontics with Dr Arun. Her favourite part of the job is witnessing patients gain confidence from their new smiles.

Kris is married with three children and a boxer dog. She loves food – both cooking and eating. In her spare time, she likes to read (particularly historical fiction), spend time with family and friends, and be near the water.


Marinka joined the Insight Orthodontics team in January 2024. Marinka brings 20 years of combined experience, having worked as an OHT for the last nine years and as a dental assistant for 11 years before that – 9 of which were in orthodontics.
Marinka enjoys not only the technical aspects of orthodontic work but also the interpersonal aspect of building relationships with patients and being able to positively impact their lives by helping them achieve a healthier, more confident smile.
In her spare time, you’ll find Marinka cooking for family, curled up with a good book or watching K-dramas.
