Our Dentists

Meet our highly skilled dentists! Between them over 70 years dental experience.

Dr Hamid Al-Hassiny
Senior Dentist / Clinical Director

Throughout my career, I have always strived to learn new techniques and use the latest equipment. I love the process of learning and mastering something new and then seeing how this benefits my patients. I also enjoy passing on this new information to other dentists which helps them overcome the challenges I faced when I was a young dentist. As the founder of Naenae Dental Clinic, my constant drive to learn and try new things has been behind much of what we do every day.

Dr Ashish Gulati
Senior Dentist

I have always been fascinated with dentistry, as a child I remember watching my father working as a dentist while I was growing up. Often I would drop into his clinic after school and observe all the different procedures and techniques. I did not choose dentistry but it chose me! I have a passion for supporting people to be the best they can be. My role in Naenae Dental Clinic gives me the opportunity to use my skills and experience to do what I enjoy most – look after my patients.

Monique Watson
General Manager
Clinical Team Leader
Executive Assistant

I first joined Naenae Dental Clinic at the end of 2020, having previously been working at our other clinic in Wainui as a Dental Assistant. Before I started working with Dr Hamid I studied at Victoria University and graduated with conjoint degrees in a Bachelor of Law and a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Criminology and minoring in Sociology. I have learned so much in just a short period of time from working here at Naenae. The technology we use is unlike anything I’ve seen before, having recently been the first in the country to start producing 3D dentures.

The staff are so friendly and welcoming and it has been an absolute pleasure to work here so far. I love interacting with the patients and being able to assist in all the various kinds of treatments that are offered at Naenae Dental. Working alongside Dr Hamid means that I also get to help with implant procedures, which has been an awesome experience so far. In my down time I enjoy, running, swimming, reading and most importantly, spending time with my friends and family.

Our Dental Hygienists

Our gentle dental hygienest team is second to none. Working alongside our dentists to help ensure long term health of your teeth and gums.

Justin Boy
Oral Health Therapist

Kia Ora, I graduated from Auckland University of Technology in 2019 with a Bachelor of Oral Health Degree. I have worked previously in Auckland with the School Dental Service treating our Tamariki, our Children. There I was able to gain a valuable insight into treating even the most anxious patients, which I have been able to transfer over to working on all patients. Working as an Oral Health Therapist here with the incredible team at Naenae Dental has enabled me to continue working on teenagers, offering general dentistry, but also to work as a hygienist allowing me to help educate and treat all patients with gingivitis and periodontitis.

Ritika Bamba
Business Development Manager

When I first applied to Naenae dental clinic, I thought working in dental practice will be very dull and mundane. I was pleasantly surprised to see the way we do things is so amazing, judging by the response we get from our patients. My passion for this role comes from my enjoyment of interacting with people, whether it is the patients we treat or the staff I work with. My background before I started here was Bachelor of Commerce (honours) followed by post graduate diploma in management, and regular trainings in NDC has really helped me out to ensure our patients have an exceptional experience from the time they walk through the door to when they leave with a smile, they are proud of. Even though I don’t work directly in the surgery room, I feel I have equally invested in patient’s treatment as the dentist and DA and help people out if they have any queries. I look forward to greet you the next time you visit us.
