May Ng  -  On Maternity leave

Hygienist BHSc (OH)

May is our cheerful and friendly part time dental hygienist and therapist. Her primary goal is to help every patient develop a life long good oral habit with focus on disease prevention. The cost of ongoing dental care can be expensive. Small changes in daily routine and regular dental/hygiene checkups can reduce cost of dental care significantly and avoid tooth loss. May is committed in providing individualized oral health advice and working with patients to develop a practical but appropriate self-care regime to maintain good oral health.

Additional to her tertiary qualifications in psychology and public health from University of Auckland, she completed a Bachelor of Health Science in Oral Health and became a registered dental therapist and hygienist. In her final year of study, she was a speaker at the Oral Health Promotion Forum and was awarded the School Dental Service and NZDHA prize. At present, she is also working for the Auckland Regional Dental Service, providing free dental care for school aged children and adolescents.
May is a member of the NZ Dental & Oral Health Therapists Association.
