Team Dental’s story began in 1997 when I opened a 7- day practice in Tauranga.
I was passionate about providing dental services that were easily accessed and affordable to everyone.
With good down to earth kiwi ingenuity, we found we could build up dental practices in an affordable manner and pass these savings onto our customers.
Since then, with my fabulous team, we have 7 practices throughout NZ. Our company is well structured, and our profits stay within NZ.
We offer career paths within our company and additionally the opportunity to have equity in our dental practices.
Nowadays I still enjoy practising dentistry to provide cover at our Tauranga branches leaving plenty of time to concentrate on growing the brand.
Outside of work I lead an active life, and enjoy running, swimming, surfing, fishing and hunting with my family.
I have been working with Brett since 1997. My role has developed over this time from part time receptionist, Practice Manager and now Operations Manager for the North Island Branches.
I am responsible for ensuring that the branch teams provide our patients with the best customer service and care we can offer, efficiently and effectively.
When I’m not at work I enjoy boating, snow skiing, horse riding and spending time with my family.
In 1996 I started work with with Brett at his Waihi Surgery as a part time receptionist and dental assistant.
As Brett expanded his business, the position grew to Practice Manager and with the development of the Team Dental group of companies, I became Group Operations Manager and then on to General Manager. I provide managerial support to all the Practices throughout the country. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, granddaughter, travelling and catching up with friends.
