About Me

“Believe it or not, PEOPLE wear teeth! Nothing startling in that, but it’s the people that wear those teeth that make such a difference to my practising day. Getting to know the tooth-wearers is truly fascinating because everyone has a story to tell and something interesting going on in their lives; even dentists!”

Adam delights in providing gentle dental solutions that patients can understand, relate to and afford. He understands that letting dentistry into his patient’s lives, on their terms, gives them the best possible path for long-term dental health. 

Moreover, since I am an utter dental wimp, I always try to provide treatments as gently and painlessly as possible, as if I was receiving these myself!

Adam practices all aspects of modern dentistry with painless anaesthetics, invisible white fillings, and state of the art ceramics CADCAM/Cerec/E4D; all for your smiling and chewing pleasure!

Adam graduated from Otago in 1987 and went straight into private practice in Wellington, he had brief stints in Kapiti, Wairarapa and London. This prepared him for taking over a very old practice in 1992, which quickly became The Gentle Dental Centre we know and love today.

Adam has a huge range of interests from music, travel, and art to sailing, classic cars, mountain biking and skiing; although his 5 children keep him very busy indeed.
