I have worked with my husband Philip as Receptionist/Chairside Assistant for many years. I trained as a Secondary School Teacher after completing a Home Science qualification at Otago University and taught part-time for 15 years. I also assisted Philip in his two Branch practices in Te Anau and Queenstown as chair-side assistant and receptionist.

I really enjoy working in the branch practices and especially the contact with the patients. The teenagers mature and become lively, interesting young people. Adult patients are very entertaining as they really want treatment and love the changes that their “new” smiles bring. Patients appreciate the changes orthodontic brings.
