Our TEAM Profiles

BEN TAYLOR BDS Manchester

GENERAL & COSMETIC

Graduated from the University of Manchester in 2006. I came to New zealand on a working holiday in 2007 and liked the country so much I ended up staying. When not working I enjoy climbing, mountain biking, mountaineering and being a devoted dad!

Aspects of dentistry I particularly enjoy are helping people who may have had a long standing fear of dentistry (often after bad experiences at school it seems) overcome their worries. I am able to offer IV sedation to particularly anxious patients.
I relish both general and cosmetic dentistry and hope that we can help meet your needs some time in the near future.

I Graduated in 2014 from Dundee University, Scotland where I spent my first couple of years working in practice, hospital and public settings before coming to New Zealand in 2016. I continue to enjoy the outdoors - particularly if it involves pedalling a bike - just as I did at home. I appreciate general dentistry and being able to provide a broad range of care for my patients.

I enjoy all aspects of dentistry, but particularly enjoy relieving patients of their toothache. I find this aspect of my job very rewarding and it provides great job satisfaction.
