Dr David Crum, BDSc, Dip Clin Dent, FICD, FADI


I grew up in the area, attending Green Bay High, then Otago University. My postgraduate study is in Restorative Dentistry and was also completed at Otago University

I started the Practice in 1987,  in 2003  became Chief Executive of the NZ Dental Association.

Since then  I continue to work part-time at the practice treating patients who in many instances have seen me since I started working in this practice 30 years ago.

My work within dentistry nationally and internationally has seen me awarded Honorary Fellowships from the International College of Dentists, The Academy Dentaire International, and The Pierre Fauchard Academy.

I have played a significant role in developing dental standards in NZ, mentoring young dentists and the promotion of oral health issues in the media and with Government.
