Ruth – Practice Manager
I have been working with Dentiq since early 2020 and it’s been an absolute pleasure. I’m passionate about ensuring the best care, support, and experience for all our wonderful clients. I started my career as a process analyst and have always had an interest in business management, development, and customer care, with much of my experience in the healthcare industry. I recently completed my Post-Graduate Diploma in Applied Management. Outside my work hours I enjoy spending time with my handsome son and amazing husband. I love food and cooking. I also enjoy writing and singing in my spare time. My motto is to be sincere, spread love and to always have a thankful heart for all that God blessed me with.
Debra – Registered Dental Hygienist & Therapist
Hi, my name is Debbie. I am a registered Oral Health Therapist and graduated from AUT university in 2010. I enjoy educating our clients about the importance of dental health and love being the heart of the practice. Our family relocated to Hawke’s Bay in 2013. We live at Puketapu and enjoy the country living on our lifestyle property. To relax I like to walk the dog, gardening, and travel whenever possible.
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!
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!
