I have been working in the dental industry for 6 years and was excited to take up a management role at Team Dental Rotorua in 2021.
I am passionate about offering a personable experience for our patients and making sure their dental journey starts off smoothly as soon as they walk through the door.
Outside of work I like to spend my free time reading, patting as many dogs as possible and exploring all the nature filled activities our beautiful town has to offer.
My name is Neive and I am an Oral Health Therapist. I was born in Rotorua and spent most of my childhood here.
I have a strong passion for oral hygiene and I love my career. I focus on clinical excellence and care greatly about patient outcomes.
My hobbies include hanging out with friends, reading, adventuring into nature and I love the beach in summer time.
I came to New Zealand from South Korea 30 years ago and have been with Team Dental for over 10 years.
I have a particular interest in Aesthetic Dentistry and Root Canal Therapy. I am very happy to help take care of the dental needs of the Rotorua Community.
Graduated with commendation from the University of Glasgow, UK in 2000
I was one of the first to take part in The General Professional training scheme in Scotland. As part of this I had a position in general practice as well as a Senior House Officer post in Glasgow Dental Hospital and School. Since then I have worked in both private practice and public funded before moving to NZ in 2009.
I have been working as a dentist in Rotorua since 2011. I am delighted to be joining the team at Team Dental Rotorua.
I enjoy all aspects of general dentistry and the satisfaction of returning confidence to a patients smile with sometimes the most simple procedure. I attend courses regularly to continue training and to keep up to date with the latest techniques and developments.
