Why I'm in the Venus Network

It has been a pleasure and a great personal gain to join the Dunedin Venus Women in Business group from the initial launch! The networking, sharing, learning and friendship that has developed amongst a diverse group of lovely, caring women from various business directions, ages and stages has been a wonderful enhancement in my middle-aged life!

My gallery


I was searching for a new dentist and a colleague of mine suggested Gardens Dental.
Helen asked about my medical history and was genuinely interested as she took it all into account when administering dental treatment. She also gave sound professional advice that I followed and with good results.
A friendly, professional and helpful team supports Helen providing a relaxed atmosphere.
I have no reservations in recommending Helen and her team to anyone who is looking for a new dentist.

My point of difference

my point of difference from a lot of colleagues would be firstly
- my practiced approach to my minimally invasive general dentistry being non-amalgam dentistry with safe amalgam removal via a passive-air suction system
- secondly, I have a genuine interest in complementary health modalities and incorporate this in my every day life.
- 'we don't just treat teeth, we look after you'
