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.

Abi – Front Office Co-ordinator

Hi Everyone My name is Abi. I’m originally from Sri Lanka, My Family and I moved to Aotearoa, when I was 9 years old. Since then I’ve been raised in Auckland and moved to Sunny Hawkes Bay in 2017, to grow my career. Best part about working for team Dentiq is definitely my colleagues, they are just the best people to be around. Such a happy bunch! Helping others is my passion! And I’ve always wanted to set my career in a medical field, so this opportunity is SO PERFECT!

I wake up every day, thrilled to come to work and learn as much as I can. Outside of work, I’m a social butterfly. I love catching up with my friends. I spend the majority of my time with my puppy Casper. I also have a big love for Yoga, which I enjoy doing in my spare time as well. I’m really looking forward to meeting you all lovely people.

Jewel – Front office Co-ordinator

New to the dental world and I am so excited to be here! After a few years in retail I decided to take a leap towards a dream career and landed here with the awesome Dentiq team.

I am currently living in Hastings with my partner and two cats Missy and Mushu. Having been named after the famous country singer Jewel Kilcher I also love to sing, I’m definitely not one to turn down a karaoke night. When I am not working I also enjoy reading, shopping and spending time with my whanau.

I am looking forward to seeing your beautiful smiles!

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!
