It's fantastic to have been a part of the big family of Auckland dentists over the past six and half years. I did my dental training at Otago University and was quite privileged to have had a year at Wellington Hospital as a house officer.
Following on, I moved back to my hometown Auckland and began work in both a private clinic and a community centre. I did that for three years during which my passion for community dentistry grew. Over the past three years, I have been working full time for The Fono, a charitable Pacific Trust based in Auckland and was recently appointed Clinical Director. It's great to have been part of the executive team and I hope I can bring a community focus to ADA. Being a relatively "young" dentist, I hope to connect with other young dentists and help provide support where needed.
