I've wanted to set up my own dental practice for many years, and I feel lucky to be doing it alongside my amazing wife Rachel, whose passion for orthodontics is a daily inspiration. My passion is helping change people’s perceptions of dental treatment by really listening to their needs around oral health and dental treatment. We've got three kids, so I'm pretty good at communicating in language that you'll understand to take the confusion out of dental treatment (although this doesn't seem to work for turning lights off and hanging up towels...).
I’ve been lucky enough to work all round the world and gain experience in surgical and sedation techniques along the way. I love helping patients get through difficult procedures using these techniques, so rest assured, you're in safe and experienced hands at our Papamoa dentist.
Rach and I are raising Max, Rufus and Sebastian which keeps us very busy, but I try to find time for Golf and Mountain Biking and we’ve recently started learning to surf. I’m very passionate about the outdoors. Oh, and I love colourful socks!
I am very excited to be part of the team at Papamoa Orthodontist/Tara Road Dental. I have been in the dental industry for 29 years and am passionate about patient care.
I look forward to meeting you and helping to ensure that coming to the dentist is a great experience for you and your family. I moved to the Bay with my husband and two boys 15 years ago. When I’m not working, I enjoy time at the lake with family and friends, wakeboarding, running, cycling and hanging on the beach with my pooches Rooby and Annie.
I have recently returned to Papamoa and Tauranga after several years working in Hamilton. I am a qualified Orthodontic Auxiliary and Dental Assistant and have been working in the dental industry since 2016. I thoroughly enjoy working closely with patients to achieve a great end result. Outside of work, I can be found exploring the outdoors and drumming with the Tauranga Pipe Band.
I have lived in Papamoa for 32 years and been in the dental industry for most of that time. I love getting to know dental patients and their families. I am married to John, and our daughter Georgia is currently at university in Christchurch. We have an old black lab named Jack and a fat cat, Lola. I enjoy making the most of the great lifestyle we have here in Tauranga and the Bay. Going on walks, fishing and pilates are a few of my favourite things to do.
I am delighted to be part of team ‘Tara Road dental Papamoa’. It has been over two decades ago that my dental career started, having graduated from Otago University with a degree in dental hygiene.
As it turns out it was the right decision for me. Here I am still loving what I do & enjoying the people I meet and care for along the way.
Outside of work life, my happiest place is trail running or joining my husband on one of his crazy kayaking adventures. We are spoiled, Aotearoa is so abundant with such spectacular forests and rivers!
I have two daughters in their early twenties, whom I am super proud of & grab every opportunity I can to spend time with them.
I look forward to meeting you and sharing my experience and passion for preventative oral care.
I have recently returned back into the dental industry and I am so excited to be working in this beautiful clinic with a neat team.
Outside of work I’m a busy Mum of 2 gorgeous girls. You’ll often find me at my fave local hot spots as a lover of coffee & vino.
