Joy is privileged to be a part of the Tooth Fairy Dental team and proud to belong to the dental profession. She brings with her a wealth of knowledge, having worked in the dental industry since the age of 19, initially as a dental assistant in the Bay and for the past several years, as a dentist.
Joy has worked both in hospital and private clinics honing her oral surgery, cosmetic and general dentistry skills. A strong belief in personal and professional development led Joy to become certified in providing IV sedation, a benefit for anxious patients, and investing in dental implant training.
Joy has developed a reputation for being approachable, naturally empathetic, and committed to improving her valued clients’ dental experience. She enjoys building long-standing relationships with her clients based on trust and good, honest communication, instilling confidence in her clients to maintain a healthy smile of which they can be proud.
Outside of Tooth Fairy Dental, Joy is an accredited member of the NZ Society of Forensic Odontology; chairs LinkT, a young people in business network in the Bay; and she enjoys developing her social venture, The Curiosity Project.
Joy and her husband, Arynn, enjoy catching up with family and friends and having ventures on the road in Miss Lee Lee, their renovated 1977 Caravan, exploring music festivals and appreciating our remarkable country. One of Joy’s guilty indulgences is exploring markets and vintage stores for unique finds.
