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!

I have completed a two 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 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, and genuinely feel that the more relaxed you are – the more relaxed I am – and I can fully focus on the task at hand! Dentistry need not be a stressful experience for the patient or for the dentist!  At All Smiles we do what we love and love what we do – and want to be able to share that with our loyal patients.

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 3M True Definition intraoral scanner at our clinic, allowing us to send scanned images of your teeth to dental labs within minutes!

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

I am a local Mt Eden resident and grew up in Central Auckland attending local schools, and am the proud mum of two very bubbly girls and a gorgeous boy who keep me busy outside of work, and who never fail to put a smile on my face and help me keep life in perspective as only children can do!

The team at All Smiles Dental are fantastic! I went to another clinic for my toothache and they were terrible. Luckily i found Dr Krystal Tarak who took time to explain what was needed for my teeth. Despite my fear of dentist, it was a pleasant experience and i look forward to going back. Awesome service. Highly recommend!

So glad I got my invisalign braces done with All Smiles! The girls made me feel welcome and at ease straight away. Whenever I had a small part that needed to be fixed or amended they were quick to accommodate me. Super happy with the results and how my teeth look. Thank you ladies for making me feel confident with my smile and making the dentist much more enjoyable!

Amazing experience with Dr Krystal and the team at All Smiles! Friendly and knowledgeable. We loved the way we were given all the information plainly and explained thoroughly. We were offered options, and given honest educated advice. This clinic really is passionate about their work and CARES for their patients. Our previous experience with dentists in NZ was not great, but All Smiles has not only restored our faith in dentists – but made our experience very pleasant and enjoyable. THANK YOU!!
