Chris graduated from Otago in 1978. He won the medal for restorative dentistry. His post graduate qualification is also from the University of Michigan, and he graduated MS in 1985. He served in the New Zealand Army in New Zealand and overseas. Luckily he was more likely to be in front of a class teaching, as part of our foreign aid programme, than facing anyone more dangerous. He and Heather set up their own practice in 1997.
Chris also works part time at Middlemore Hospital in a specialist capacity, seeing patients whose medical needs often put them beyond the scope of a general practice dentist
Heather graduated with a BDS from Otago in 1977 and obtained her specialist Orthodontic qualification from the University of Michigan in 1986. She also has a postgraduate diploma in paediatric dentistry. Heather served in the New Zealand Army until 1997, and is currently a Consultant Orthodontist with the Cleft Lip and Palate Service at Middlemore Hospital.
