our Specialist Orthodontist
Fiona has travelled a long road since primary school in Dunedin. She studied for her dental degree at Bristol University, England and then completed her three-year Master’s Degree in Orthodontics, with an academic scholarship at the University of Otago.
She became a Specialist Orthodontist in 1999. She practiced as an orthodontist in Auckland and England both in the hospital and private practice. In 2004 Fiona set up practice in New Lynn where she has since looked after over 6000 local patients. She actively participates in continuing professional development and runs the North Shore and West Auckland Orthodontist Peer group. This allows her to stay current on the latest technology and treatments. Fiona is a member of the Auckland Dental Association, New Zealand Dental Association, New Zealand Association of Orthodontists, World Federation of Orthodontists and Wish for a Smile Trust – the charitable arm of the NZAO.
Fiona is the mother of Isobel and Rory and is married to Arend. She loves the outdoors especially tramping and multi-sport. Reading, the arts, gardening and caring for the hens are other spare time activities.
