Coming from a family of dentist I have always been fascinated and admired the dental field. Having been exposed to the paramount importance of oral health when considering overall health I decided to become a dentist early in my university career. I spent 7 years studying to become a dentist at the University of Otago. Afterwards I spent time in Kaitaia working as a General Dentist for 2 years in a tight-knit community. I found it was very rewarding to know my patients individually and be a part of their community and lives. In 2014, I moved back to my home of Wellington and remembered why I fell in love with this city. I have worked in Naenae Dental Clinic since moving back and have enjoyed every aspect of providing dental care.
