Fiona Paterson is a smiling, friendly Scottish dentist who moved to the Bay of Plenty in January 2011, after travelling all over New Zealand. She gained NZ residency in August 2011 and has found Tauranga to be a lovely city with friendly people in a wonderful location and is delighted to have settled here. She set up Gardens Dental from scratch in 2011, and is very happy to be so busy! Fi and her husband Tom had their child Charlie in September 2013. They all enjoy going for walks with their two dogs Bailey and Toby. They now have a menagerie of animals - 24 chooks, 4 ducks, 2 dogs, 1 cat and 2 fat piggies.
Sanika arrived in the beautiful Bay of Plenty in early 2017, having graduated from Otago University. She has worked in Christchurch Hospital for two years, performing general dentistry and emergency treatment such as restoring chipped or broken teeth with tooth-coloured composite material, or providing extractions or root canal treatment. We are very happy to have Sanika on board our busy team at Gardens Dental, as she has a kind, smiling, friendly personality. Sanika is keen to take plenty of time to minimise discomfort, and truly understand what you want to achieve with regards to your oral health. She looks forward to meeting you to understand your oral health goals, and to help you achieve a healthy and beautiful smile.
