Vikki is the middle one of the 3 nelson girls. After studying economics at Otago, she then went on to complete her dental training and graduated in 1992.

Originally she started working at the west Auckland practice where she gained a vast amount of experience with oral surgery under  general anesthetic & where she became extremely interested in the cosmetic side of dentistry  , especially orthodontics.. “To see children’s confidence grow and develop purely from creating a great smile is something immensely rewarding” – especially nowadays when the whole procedure takes a relatively short period of time with minimal discomfort.

Vikki has  3 children, Ali and Tane (who are at present  both attending university),and  Gabi  the youngest,. Her husband Graham is a keen sailor and is  the calming family influence who keeps Vikki motivated to maintain  an even work life balance

So  away from the  daily challenges of work and family , and in order to clear the mind  Vikki  always endeavor’s to incorporate some “ me “time  into her day.  She does this by  keeping fit & active   by either working out at the gym, skiing,  walking ,running or  simply by  learning to play golf   with friends….

At present she is a current member of the NZ Dental Association, Auckland Dental Association, NZ Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and the NZ functional Orthodontic Society.

Is a founding member of the AAFDA  in New Zealand This enables her to keep up with the latest advancements in dentistry and facial asthetics
