The most important and enjoyable aspect of dentistry for me is working with patients to develop “dental confidence” and satisfaction with the quality of life that comes from excellent dental care.
I graduated from the University of Otago in 2014 with distinction and have since gained a wide variety of experience in Auckland and the Hawke’s Bay. In returning to Tauranga I hope to make a meaningful contribution at TBK Dental and look forward to meeting new patients.
I am committed to providing the best that modern dentistry has to offer and pride myself in a thorough and gentle approach. Over time I have developed a special interest in aesthetic and restorative dentistry, “minimally invasive” techniques and endodontics, which enables the conservation of damaged teeth. I also take great care in motivating patients to look after their diet and dental hygiene practices to prevent problems in the future.
Always of interest to me is the chance to develop my skills and knowledge through certified educational courses and self-directed reading. Aside from being enjoyable, this enables me to keep abreast of ongoing changes and to work with patients accordingly to deliver quality of care.
Tauranga is home for me, having grown up here. It will be great to spend more time with family and get involved in the community. In my spare time I enjoy outdoor pursuits such as bushwalks and other leisure activities, along with an interest in music and art.
