Growing up in Auckland, I have spent the last few years in Dunedin where I completed my Bachelor of Dental Surgery and Bachelor of Science at the University of Otago. Visiting Whangarei, I fell in love with the city and I am excited to begin a new chapter of my life here. I am dedicated to providing a gentle and comfortable dental experience for my patients. As a firm believer of lifelong learning, I am always looking to further my dental knowledge and welcome feedback in order to provide the best care possible. When I am not looking at teeth, I like to spend my time playing basketball or amongst nature, with a passion for houseplants and aquariums.
