Meet the Team at All Smiles Dental

All Smiles Dental

Wanting to provide fair and quality dentistry to the area she grew up in, our principal 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

Outside of work I enjoy getting out and about with my husband, our daughter Vienna and our energetic Shiba Inu named Kobe for nice long walks. We also spend a lot of time with my 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:

  • Certificate in Dental Assisting from the New Zealand Dental Association

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 7 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.

Sabrina Frankland- Clinical Co-Ordinator

My journey in dentistry started in 2013. I am a team- orientated Dental Assistant with a passion for the industry. With more than seven years’ experience, I provide optimal support and comfort for patients and dentists alike.

I have an appreciation for general as well as cosmetic dentistry, but a special passion for any surgical procedure, after having spent four years in specialist implants and periodontics, assisting in various surgical procedures, including implants, connective tissue grafting, sinus lifts and more.

When not at work most of my time is spent with my two boys, as well as gaming, reading and playing the piano

Jasmine Mills – Dental Assistant

I began working in the dental industry in 2018 after graduating high school. It was an area of interest for me, enough to which I pursued a position being a Dental Assistant. Since then, I have about 3 years of working experience behind me and have also completed my Certificate in Dental Assisting which means that I am now qualified and registered with the New Zealand Dental Association.
As your Dental Assistant, I assist the dentist and run cleaning and sterilisation procedures ensuring infection prevention and control. I enjoy helping patients to feel at ease and creating a relaxing environment, as I can understand that its not everyones favourite place to be!
Outside of work I enjoy getting out of the house, usually with friends or my younger brother who I am very close with. We like finding new places to eat, going for walks or even the odd trip away from Auckland.

Qualifications I have gained include:

NZDA Certificate in Dental Assisting

Sedation Monitoring

EMCARE Dental Modular level 4 in Resuscitation & CPR.
