Colleen – Operations Manager

I have been in dentistry management for 20 years and love what I do. I have been married since 2002 and we have a wonderful cheeky son who is full of life and always puts a smile on our face. In 2007 we moved to the Sunny Hawkes Bay from the Wairarapa due to my husband’s work, which was the greatest move we did. I enjoy spending time with the family and relaxing when I can.

I started my career as a process analyst and later took an interest in Business administration. I moved to Aotearoa in 2019 with my husband and handsome little son to pursue higher studies. I have completed my Post Graduate Diploma in Applied management. I have been with Dentiq since early 2020. I’m passionate about my job and caring for others. I enjoy spending time with my family. A big foodie, I love experimenting and creating recipes. My motto is to be honest and spread love, being thankful for everything God has blessed me with. I cherish working at Dentiq, to me Dentiq is family and it’s my second home.


Kayla – Treatment Facilitator

I am young and ready to take the dental world by storm! I am eager to learn as much as I can and when I am not at work learning I spend my time at home with me 2 lovely kittens and flatmates. I love to garden in my spare time (that is if I don’t kill the plants before i get to them.) I also love a sneaky glass of wine on my relaxing days off which I normally spend at the beach or with friends! I am looking forward to meeting all our lovely patients and getting to know more about you guys!
