In 1998 I joined Team Dental Waihi, as Brett's dental assistant.
Since then I have travelled the world, established my life with my husband and daughter in Tauranga and remained involved in the dental industry.
I am passionate about caring for people and delighted to open and manage Team Dental Te Puna.
Gordon graduated from the University of Pretoria in 2012 and immigrated to New Zealand in 2016.
He enjoys open, personal and honest relationships with his clients, and provides patient-centred dental treatment. He understands dental appointments are notorious for being unpleasant experiences and aims to change that.
Gordon provides a full scope of dental practice from restorative fillings through to prosthetics.
In his spare time Gordon enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling and savouring the immense beauty of New Zealand.
I am very pleased to be joining the team dental team.
I was born and raised in Auckland, I completed my first four years of Bachelor of Dental Surgery at Dunedin, before spending my final year of clinical training back in Auckland. I am dedicated to building a trusting relationship with my patients, keeping you informed and feeling safe at all times. Dental visits should be a comfortable and painless experience.
I am most excited about moving Tauranga. It is my privilege to be able to work in and help the community of this beautiful city. Outside of dentistry, I enjoy playing the piano, rock climbing, and skiing

I grew up in Whakatane with my family before moving to Auckland to study at AUT graduating in 2018 with a dual degree as an Oral Health Therapist. I then continued to work in Auckland for 4years before moving back to the Bay of Plenty.
I value patient-centred care and ensuring each patient has a positive dental experience that is comfortable to help them achieve optimal oral health and personal confidence.
Outside of work I enjoy a busy lifestyle, pursuing my sporting interests which include biking, fishing and playing high performance hockey. I also value spending quality time with my family and friends.
