Catherine moved to New Zealand from the UK with her partner, Murdoch at the end of 2016 and feels incredibly lucky to have settled in The Mount and join the Tooth Fairy team!
Prior to moving to New Zealand, Catherine lived in Newcastle and worked in both General Practice and at Newcastle Dental Hospital, teaching undergraduate dental students on the Emergency Clinic.
Whilst she is passionate about all aspects of general and cosmetic dentistry, she has particularly developed her oral surgery and dental emergency skills through working in busy hospital departments. She has a warm, friendly manner and especially enjoys working with anxious patients; making it her goal to help clients overcome their phobias to achieve and maintain a healthy smile.
Catherine’s philosophy is to practice minimally invasive dentistry and she is committed to continuing education in order to provide the best and most up to date care.
Outside of Dentistry, Catherine is a keen (but very amateur) photographer and she loves going exploring to capture shots of the country’s stunning landscapes. She also enjoys skiing, playing tennis, and is keen to start learning to surf!
