“My mother was a dental therapist and I was always fascinated with what she did and I also really enjoyed visiting our family dentists, the father and son Dr’s A & I Ross in Taumarunui. I’d often go and watch them working. It was the natural choice for me to train as a dentist and I’m still hooked on learning new techniques and providing my patients with the best dentistry available.

I practice gentle dentistry and prefer to offer my patients the most minimally invasive options. My goal is to make the patient feel as comfortable as possible. When you’re feeling relaxed I can concentrate on providing the best possible dental care. A person’s smile is very important and I take my role in maintaining and improving it very seriously. I’m passionate about providing my patients with gold standard dentistry and my ongoing commitment and investment in advanced materials and equipment ensures this. 

Features of my practice delivery include:

  • Very knowledgeable and skilled in advanced sedation and pain-free dentistry.
  • Excellent selection of the latest dental materials to choose from.
  • Personalised treatment planning and scheduling.
  • Skilled and experienced in cosmetic and aesthetic dentistry and oral rehabilitation.
  • Technically advanced equipment including The newest CEREC CAD/CAM System, Gentle soft tissue diode Lasers, Digital X-ray Imaging and best practice equipment for Endodontics.
  • I am committed to, and thoroughly enjoy, ongoing professional development to keep me at the forefront of the latest techniques and developments in dental science. 
  • Skilled and experienced in Endodontics, (root canal therapy), member of the NZ Society of Endonontics.
