After working in the dental industry for 30 odd years I am delighted to take up the management of Team Dental Papamoa.
I have worked with Team Dental for over 3 years as a receptionist and a Senior Dental Assistant, and am looking forward to the challenges that management brings.
Dr Mike Simon's philosophy is to make an unpleasant job as comfortable and pain free as possible.
With over 30 years experience as a general dentist Dr Mike is looking forward to working with the friendly people of Papamoa. Dr Mike Simon graduated from Otago University in 1981, he spent 15 years running a very busy dental practice in Lower Hutt offering general dental services with a special interest in safe mercury filling removal. In 2007 he joined Lumino, and in 2013 he and his wife Katy relocated to sunny Papamoa. Dr Mike is a keen sailor and skier, he and Katy have 4 adult children and a griffin dog called Enzo. Dr Mike strives to help his patients maintain a healthy, functional and strong mouth to ensure better general health. Dr Mike offers patients who request it a safe amalgam removal programme.
I'm very excited to be joining the team at Team Dental Pāpāmoa after recently graduating from The University of Otago, where I completed a Bachelor of Dental Surgery with Distinction.
Having trained at both the Dunedin and South Auckland Campuses, I've had the privilege to work alongside patients from a variety of backgrounds. I'm really excited to bring this experience here as I get to know the people in this community.
In my spare time I enjoy cooking, going down to the beach and keeping fit at the gym. My goal is to care for the community to ensure everyone has the opportunity to have excellent oral health.
Being an Auckland boy, I now look forward to calling Pāpāmoa my home and exploring the Bay of Plenty Region.
I graduated from the University of Otago in 2019 and worked mainly in Central Otago since. After living in the South Island all of my life I’m excited to be moving to the Bay of Plenty and soaking in the sunshine!
I enjoy all aspects of dentistry, but have a special interest in oral surgery. I aim to continuously develop my knowledge and skills in this field, as well as keep up with the latest dental developments. I aim to provide quality treatment, whilst giving patients a positive dental experience, and the knowledge needed to take control of their oral health.
In my spare time I like being at the beach, canyoning, and trying different cuisines.
ORAL HEALTH THERAPIST
Hi I’m Ange and I graduated from AUT with a dual degree as an Oral Health Therapist in 2010.
Prior to this I was a dental assistant for 6yrs in Wellington. I enjoy the lifestyle Papamoa provides. Beach life and a slower pace to life is suiting me well.
Long walks on the beach with our dog Bowie, biking and creating cuisine with fresh local fruit and veges are my favourite ways to spend my leisure time.
I am a great believer in preventative healthcare and I am invested in my patients having positive health outcomes.
I look forward to meeting you, and for us to work together to improve your quality of life.
