Our People

David is our principal dentist. He graduated from the University of Birmingham Dental School in the UK in 1984. He practised general dentistry in the UK for three years before emigrating to New Zealand in 1987. After an associate position in Otorohanga he opened his Hastings practice in 1989.

David is known for his gentle approach to dental treatment and his special interest is in restorative dentistry, improving the appearance of his patient's teeth using cosmetic procedures. This includes crowns, bridges, veneers and many other procedures to restore teeth to their natural unblemished condition.
