All Smiles Dental
Wanting to provide fair and quality dentistry to the area she grew up in, our principle dentist & owner Dr. Krystal Tarak created All Smiles Dental. After spending a couple of years practicing in Balmoral the vast growth of our practice and desire to introduce modern dental technologies such as scanning technology and laser dentistry encouraged us to expand on our services and open at a new custom designed location which lends itself to the services we provide.
With all of this in mind All Smiles Dental® was born in January 2014.
Developing the All Smiles® Brand
As a dental clinic that strives to provide a caring service from start to finish, honesty, integrity, down to earth staff and quality treatment at a fair price for everyone, we were looking for fun yet professional branding.
With the help of an amazing graphic designer we have created that brand which reflects our values, team and the All Smiles service.
OUR LOGO: The heart combined with the tooth symbol reflect the caring and personable love we show to our customers and their smiles.
THE FONTS: Just good old classic book typeface. Not too fancy
THE QUOTES: The inspiration in making sure everyone who comes to see us are ALL SMILES®
Love your smile x

I started in the dental industry 15 years ago as a dental assistant and have spent the last few years working through the various roles in a dental practice.
In my spare time I love to spend time with my husband and our son born in 2018, who is such a joy in our lives. We catch up with friends and our family who are out of town lots too. I have a great passion for animals and their welfare and have a sweet SPCA kitty at home called Nala.
My vast experience and caring personality enables me to provide you with a genuine and knowledgeable personal service.
Dr Krystal Tarak and I worked together previously in another dental clinic and it has been a pleasure to join her again together with our other clinician’s Sylvia and Grace in caring for their patients.

I was born and raised in Tauranga but have called Auckland home for the past 10 years. I started off in the fashion industry which I still have an interest in, before moving into the dental field.
Outside of work I enjoy getting out and about with my husband and our energetic Shiba Inu named Kobe for nice long walks. We also spend a lot of time with my 89 year old grandad who loves to eat- we are frequently trying out different cafes and restaurants.
I work closely with all of our clinicians to ensure you are made as comfortable as possible throughout your dental experience and aim to have you leave our clinic smiling.
Qualifications I have gained:

Usha Soma – Patient Care Co-ordinator
I am new to the dental industry, having come from a background in travel, as well as having run my own retail business for many years, however, I believe the underlying principle of all successful businesses is excellent service, and that is irrespective of which industry is being discussed.
My role at All Smiles will be to greet you when you arrive and make sure you are comfortable before and after your visit to see us. All Smiles is incredibly proud of its’ exceptional reputation for customer service, and I am pleased to be able to join the team as they continue to exceed their guest’s expectations.
I am blessed to have 6 beautiful grandchildren, and love to spend every moment with them that I can. I also enjoy handcraft, knitting, sewing and more recently, have taken up spinning wool, which I find very rewarding and relaxing.
