David keeps up with the latest developments in dentistry and frequently attends dental courses nationally and internationally to enhance his dental knowledge and skills.
He has also been trained in implant placement and restoration at the Trinon Collegium Practicum, a course designed by the German implant company, Trinon.
David has volunteered his dental services in Cambodia twice. He spent six weeks treating the local children and then spent another week at the University of Health Sciences, Phnom Penh where he placed over 30 dental implants on adults.
David practices all aspects of general dentistry and most enjoys relieving dental pain and improving his patient’s appearance. David understands most people have a limited budget and prides himself on his ability to provide quality dental treatment while remaining within his patient’s budget.
David lives in Lower Hutt with his wife Golda, who is a nurse in the emergency department at Hutt Hospital. They have a toddler, Daniel, and when David isn’t stopping Daniel from sticking random objects in his mouth and playing with electrical sockets, he enjoys going to the gym and wasting the hours watching inspiring YouTube videos. When David gets the time he likes to travel and ski although it’d be fair to say these are more interests than hobbies at the moment!
