Dr Ngahina Gillies-Pivac | Dentist

BDS (Otago)

Ngahina Graduated from Otago University with credit in 2010. Ngahina has spent the past 11 years working locally - the last 6 years as a principal dentist elsewhere, she has taken a step back to focus on her family and furthering her dental education.

Aside from being able to provide a positive impact on people’s quality of life, she loves being able to put her patients at ease and build good long-term relationships. Ngahina practices all aspects of general dentistry to a high standard including extractions, crowns, fillings, veneers, and implants.

Dr Ngahina finds learning new skill’s exciting - it is really motivating to be able to continuously learn, improve and expand the treatment and services that she can provide her patients.

When not in the dental surgery Ngahina can be found enjoying family time with her husband and two children. Ngahina enjoys HIIT at F45, horse riding, landscaping, and looking after animals on their lifestyle block.
