Dr James Au BDS (Otago)
Dentist - Dixon Street & Lambton Quay

"As a kid I always knew I wanted to be a dentist. My role model was my own dentist who always impressed me with the compassion he demonstrated towards his patients. I have strived to emulate this at the Gentle Dental Centre. 

"Most patients are uncomfortable in the dental chair so I stand by my motto: ‘Care for your patients and perform dentistry on them, the way you would want it performed on yourself.’ I am proud of my ability and hope my patients are too."

James graduated from Otago University in 2011 and began his career in Wellington at a private practice. He has since added to his education by completing Trinon Collegium Practicum implantology training and has recently undertaken a 2 year mini residency orthodontic training in Sydney Australia.


James enjoys all facets of dentistry from simple single tooth restoration to full mouth rehabilitation. He has a particular interest in implant and orthodontic dentistry.


In his spare time, James enjoys music, playing piano and guitar. He loves staying fit either through soccer or Crossfit and taking time out with his family.
