Usha Narshai - President & NZDA Board Representative

I graduated from University of Otago in 1991. Apart from the 5 years of study in Dunedin, I have always lived in Auckland.

In 1997, my dad was keen to retire. Armed with several years’ experience, I re-established his private practice located in the colourful city-fringe suburb of Grey Lynn. I enjoy my relationships with patients and staff, and believe that good oral health enhances the quality of your life.

I have been actively involved with the NZDA for many years, and currently I am the Auckland Branch Board Representative on the NZDA Executive Committee. This role is important in ensuring there is communication between the NZDA and its branches.

As the Auckland Branch President this year, my goal is for each member dentist to give and receive support, while enjoying a feeling of inclusion and participation. By embracing our diverse, multi-generational and multicultural membership, I hope to create a sustainable, healthy and compassionate Wellbeing culture (WELLBEING 360°).
