Deanna is the youngest of the 3 Nelson daughters & the second to follow in her dads footsteps. Like her father and sister, Deanna trained and qualified in Otago. She joined the team in 1994 and has worked in the Ponsonby practice since its opening in 1996.
Whilst she enjoys all aspects of general dentistry, Deanna has a real passion for Orthodontics. “Improving smiles and more often entire faces is very rewarding. In a lot of instances, Orthodontic treatment has a positive effect on the patients overall health. Seeing someone’s confidence develop over the course of the treatment is fulfilling for both patient and dentist”.
Deanna has completed many post graduate courses in orthodontics, Implant dentistry and cosmetic dentistry. She is a member of the NZ Functional Orthodontic Society, The NZ Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, The Auckland Dental Association and the NZ Dental Association.
Deanna likes to keep fit and enjoys both the gym and the outdoors. Her two young children, Liam and Frankie, are both real characters and keep her life very busy in the weekends!
