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 professional 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 am proud to say that I have over 6 times the legally mandated ‘minimum’ of continuing education to maintain my Annual Practicing Certificate with the Dental Council of New Zealand – because I love to learn!
