I graduated from the University of Otago at the end of 2017, and have been working in Auckland since. I work in a practice which sees a mix of public and private patients. I have also recently started work at the Auckland branch of the University of Otago, Faculty of Dentistry, tutoring the final year dental students.
Last year I took on the two year role of Auckland representative for the Young Dentist Action Group for the NZDA. Being a recent graduate myself, I recognise the challenges associated with being new to this profession. Using my ties with the YDAG, the ADA, and the students at the dental school, I hope to encourage and promote the involvement and participation of young dentists in the Auckland region.
