After obtaining my medical degree from abroad in 2000, I pursued dentistry and completed my dental qualification at the University of Otago in 2008. Post-graduation, I served as a House Surgeon at Christchurch Hospital, and later worked in various private practices located in Christchurch and North Canterbury.

Dentistry holds my interest in all its aspects, although aesthetic dentistry holds a particular fascination for me. My enthusiasm lies in providing high-quality dental care with a warm, professional, and honest approach. My focus is always on the patients, and I strongly believe in educating them about the significance of oral health, given its close association with general health. I provide treatment options that are best suited for each individual while respecting financial constraints. My preference is to use minimally invasive procedures whenever feasible, and I take pride in delivering high quality work.

I see dentistry as a form of art that I am passionate about.  This, together with my enjoyment of connecting with people has led me to a fulfilling career in dentistry.
