Artina Philip BDS our new Riccarton Dentist

I am very pleased to be joining the Team at the Riccarton Branch in the New Year. Originally I am from Romania where my parents and my teachers encouraged me to study dentistry.

I graduated in 1982 and practiced in Romania for over 10 years. On my big O.E. I discovered New Zealand.


I left my homeland to settle in Auckland just before Christmas 1994.  In 1998 I passed my New Zealand Registration with the Otago Dental School and started my Dental career in New Zealand.

I worked for several Auckland Practices before setting up my own practice in the Eastmed Integrated Medical Centre in Saint Heliers.   


Dentistry allows me to help people and also provides variety. I enjoy meeting people from all walks of life, and I take pride in being able to help them.

Outside work I enjoy reading, walking, travelling, exploring new places, meeting new people.

My family recently moved to Christchurch and it is the desire to be closer to them and be a part of my new Grandsons life that has bought me to the Canterbury region.
