Meet Our Team
I graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery (with Credit) from the University of Otago in 2010 and briefly worked in Wellington, before returning home to Auckland, I have been in a private practice in Pakuranga for the past 8 years, as a lead dentist. I moved to Auckland from Taiwan when i was 9 years old and I am a St Kents’ Old Boy.I’m fluent in Mandarin and English, New Zealand style!
I enjoy building a trusting and harmonious relationship with my patients, and always take the time to get to know my patients’ individual needs. I am relaxed and calm in my approach, and I like to make patients feel comfortable in the dental chair. I am committed to oral disease prevention, with a focus on comfort and longevity. My favourite part of dentistry is making teeth look and feel good as new using tooth-coloured materials. I also enjoy endodontics (root canal treatment) and restoring dental implants to replace missing teeth. I have come to know that dentistry is learning journey, and I am committed to continue to refine my skills as a clinician by attending conferences in New Zealand and abroad.
Outside of dentistry, I keep myself busy! I own a small specialty coffee shop on Karangahape Road, with a focus on serving excellent coffee in a calm and beautiful environment. I enjoy keeping fit and play basketball competitively in local leagues and national tournaments.
I am a member of the New Zealand Dental Association and the New Zealand Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. I look forward to meeting you.

What our clients are saying
I have been seeing the team at Dentist on Shakespeare for 16 years and have always felt assured that each and every time they were doing the best job possible for me with my interests at heart.
Flexible, helpful and always willing to talk through alternative solutions if the one provided is not quite right for me.
I trust the Shakespeare crew and would recommend them to anyone needing quality dental work.
Earlier this year I decided to change my dentist, and on the recommendation of a friend, I came to Dentist on Shakespeare. My decision was a good one.
I was very pleased with the results of the work I had done.
I was made to feel welcome and relaxed. I felt assured that any work done was to be completed as efficiently and pleasantly as possible.
It was, and still is, a pleasure to deal with the whole team. I have no hesitation in recommending Dentist on Shakespeare to anyone wanting high quality, friendly dental work.
We have been patients at Dentist on Shakespeare for well over 10 years and have always been extremely happy with the suggestions and dentistry provided for us.
My husband is disabled and all the staff are lovely, very friendly and so helpful with him that he feels quite special when we go there.
The building is always spotless and there is off-road parking right at the door which is wonderful on rainy days.
We have been patients of the practice for a number of years now and both of us continue to have upkeep of our teeth here.
From a feeling of dread at going to the dentist we both now really enjoy our regular appointments. Right from the moment we walk in the door the friendly greeting and calming atmosphere of the reception room puts us instantly at ease.
We would like to commend the always friendly team, who seems to go about their business in a very calm manner and always with a big smile.
Thank you all.
