Dental Hygienists

Azin Asghari - BOH (Otago)
Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)

Azin had been a Wellington local her whole life, before heading down to Dunedin to complete first year Health Science followed by a Bachelor of Oral Health at the University of Otago. She now uses both the scopes acquired from this degree and works part time as a Hygienist, and part time as a Dental Therapist for the District Health Board treating those under the age of 18.

She enjoys the variety of people and work she gets to do in this career, and finds it rewarding improving people's health outcomes through the preventative care she provides. She is passionate about educating patients on oral health topics as there seems to be a lack of information on this subject for those outside the field. She is a gentle, patient and caring practitioner that tries to ensure her patients are comfortable at all stages of treatment.

In her spare time Azin enjoys a good TV show, and socialising with friends over good food. Traveling and photography are are her passion when she has some time off, and loves learning about other cultures in the process. 

Amanda Watkins - BOH (Otago)
Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)

Amanda recently moved back to Wellington after graduating with a Bachelor of Oral Health Therapy from the University of Otago.

She has prior experience as a dental assistant, which furthered her love in all things dental. Her biggest passion is helping her patients in anyway possible, making it a comfortable and gentle experience. Amanda strives to provide her patients with a positive dental experience, leaving them with a clearer picture of their Oral Health (with many tips, tricks and laughs).

In her spare time, Amanda enjoys running around Wellington bush tracks, binging TV shows, making her own clothes and anything fashion related.
