Michael has been practicing in Auckland since 1984 after graduating from Otago University. He joined the practice as a partner to Dave in 1989 and together with Anthony has built the family practice we have today.
He has always had a strong interest in orthodontics and since 1985 has achieved outstanding results in this area. He believes in the 'Full Face Orthodontics" approach and treating the cause, not just the symptom of crooked teeth, for a lifelong beautiful smile. Mike is the President of the NZDOS (New Zealand Dentists Orthodontics Society) as well as a member of the NZDA, ADA, and the IAO (International Association of Orthodontics).
Mike also specializes in full mouth restorations and cosmetic dentistry. He gets pride from restoring a patient's mouth to its full potential. Mike believes in treating other people they way he would like to be treated. With this approach he has a relaxed relationship with his staff and patients, which seems to work wonders.
He also understands the importance of building on his own experiences and knowledge by attending dental conferences in New Zealand as well as America and Australia. Mike enjoys learning about the latest innovations dentistry has to offer and believes continuing education is the key to providing our patients with the highest standard of dental treatments available.
Mike also enjoys a high speed run down the drag strip (in his modified cars), fishing and farm living. He is lucky enough to have four beautiful women to share his life with, wife Robyn and their three daughters Amanda, Kristie and Sammy.
