Dr. Krystal Tarak, BDS (Otago)
I’m the owner of All Smiles Dental. I pride myself on my ability to make patients feel at ease, and my friendly, gentle nature ensures that even the most apprehensive patient is well cared for and has a pleasant dental experience. I take the time to make sure that all treatment options are clearly explained and that the treatment plan recommended is always tailored to the needs of each individual I see.
My main areas of interest are in orthodontic and cosmetic dentistry as well as oral surgery, a field in which I gained vast experience during my time as a Dental and Maxillofacial House Surgeon at Wellington Regional Hospital. I worked largely with medically compromised and special needs patients as well as attending to trauma and emergency cases during this time.
My commitment to continual development and excellence sees my attendance at many continuing education opportunities to ensure I am always at the forefront of the latest technology and advancement in the dental field, and I actively put this knowledge into practice in my daily clinical work.
I have completed a 2 and a half year course of study in Orthodontics with Progressive Orthodontic Systems, in which I graduated with Honours status for exceptional examination results and clinical cases. I am also an accredited and certified provider of Invisalign, Inman Aligner, Clear Correct, Myobrace and Fastbraces orthodontic systems. In 2017 I became the FIRST (and currently only) Senior Master Provider of Fastbraces in New Zealand - joining a limited number of Senior Master providers worldwide - a recognition of the volume of cases finished to a high orthodontic standard.
I enjoy being able to make your dental experience as comfortable as possible with our use of ‘sleep’ dentistry and IV sedation, for which I am accredited through the NZ Society of Sedation in Dentistry.
I have completed my Primary Examinations in the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons and have also gained University of Queensland accreditation in the use of Dental Lasers.
I have furthermore completed training in both the E4D and Cerec systems of CAD/CAM dentistry and am excited to be able to offer advanced restorative options to our patients via use of our intraoral scanner.
I am an active member of the following organizations:
- New Zealand Dental Association
- New Zealand Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry
- Australasian Academy of Dento-Facial Aesthetics
- New Zealand Society of Sedation in Dentistry
- Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons
