Maddie BeserraDental Hygienist
Marie DavisDental Hygienist
I am originally from Sweden but have made NZ my home. I love what NZ has to offer in the way of outdoor activities as mountain biking is a big part of my life. I previously worked at Dental on Raffles as a dental assistant for 7 years before I decided to study Bachelor of Oral Health in Otago.
I was fortunate to get this great opportunity to come back to work in this awesome dental practice as a qualified Dental Hygienist/Therapist. I chose this career because I believe having a healthy mouth is an important part of our overall well-being and being able to help people achieve this is fantastic.
Dr Gary WinterDental Surgeon
As you can see I am no newcomer to Dentistry having a career spanning almost 40 years. Time has not diminished my passion for this challenging and dynamic profession. I am absolutely enthused over the modern advances that help me deliver a standard of workmanship we could only dream about a few years ago.
I am a GP Dentist with special interests in reconstruction of broken down and lost teeth with crowns, bridges, veneers and implants. When not looking into mouths I love nothing more than to go sea kayaking or hiking.
Degree: U.C.L.A. Master Clinician Program in Implant Dentistry
Dr Garth ForbesDental Surgeon
Brought up in Wairoa, I first graduated as a microbiologist from Massey University in 1975. When a good friend suggested I should join him in Dental school I started talking to a few dentists. I soon realised I had found my calling and my life career.
From my times as House surgeon, I retained my interest in paediatric, special needs dentistry and minor surgery (e.g. Wisdom teeth). I now contract to “Mobile Surgical Services” around 6 times a year, carrying out these procedures on the Mobile Surgical Bus in Wairoa.
What attracted me to this practice is that Gary Winter has kept his equipment, materials and techniques right up-to-date and he has the same passion and drive for excellence in dentistry I have.
Degrees: BSc, BDS
