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.
I look forward to working with The Team at Team Dental Riccarton. I also look forward to playing with my grandson Izzy.
