I was born in Beijing and lived in several countries before committing to the good old kiwi life style and moved to “sunny” Dunedin to study. I then graduated as a dentist in 2014. I went on to work in a very busy private practice for 2 years in the heart of New Plymouth. Recently I moved up to the bay and started working at TBK Dental. Other than work I absolutely love the outdoors, I enjoy tramping, camping, kayak fishing, hunting, scuba diving, fly fishing and the list goes on.
I am fluent in English as well as Mandarin Chinese.
Dentistry is one of my greatest passions. I take pride in the work I do, and at the end of the day patient’s satisfaction is really what drives me to keep improving my skills. I regularly attend national dental conferences and hands on workshops to learn the latest scientifically proven treatment procedures to provide the best treatment for our patients.
I take my time to discuss the treatment options with my patient to make sure we formulate the most suitable, cost effective treatment plan for them. During the dental treatment, I often explain exactly what the next step is to the patient beforehand to avoid any surprises. And at the end of the treatment I often take intraoral pictures to show the finished product and make sure patients are happy with what they have received.
I believe that I have the best job in the world, because I am able to make a positive contribution to patients’ oral health, appearance and often confidence in their smile after just a few visits.
I look forward to meeting you in the near future.
