Our Friendly Team
Phillip Chin (BDS) - Principal Dentist
A born and bred Wellingtonian, Phillip graduated from Otago University in 1986. After working for various dental practices in Wellington, Waikanae and London, he purchased an established Dental Practice in Wellington in 1995. He grew it from a three day-a-week Practice to a five day-a-week Practice. In 1997 the Practice shifted from across the road to where it is today into state of the art modern premises. Phillip's passion is ensuring patients keep their teeth for life and is committed to listening to patients and their needs, and providing various treatment options from which to choose. He has two children and has an interest in cars, sports, travel and most recently, making furniture (some of which you will see at the Practice). Phillip is a member of the NZ Dental Association, the NZ Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and NZ Endodontic Society.
Tuyen Nguyen (BOH)-Oral Health Therapist
Tuyen is a Dental Hygienist and Therapist who graduated from Otago University. She has returned back to Wellington to be close to her friends and family as well as to give back to the community which she grew up in. We are lucky to have Tuyen on our team as she endeavours to give the best level of care whilst keeping patients at ease. She is passionate about changing the view of oral health and promotes prevention. Her hobbies include travelling, relaxing with a movie or experiencing new eateries.
Shelley Mo (BOH) - Oral Health Therapist
Shelley joined our team at the start of the year. She is a registered Oral Health Therapist and graduated from University of Otago. She worked for us 6 years ago so she knows our systems well and some of our patients remember her. We are lucky to have her back. She enjoys helping people retain their teeth for as long as they can. Outside of work, she has a passion for baking and cooking and spending time with family.
Channa Wright - Front Office Co-ordinator
Channa's goal is to ensure the patient's time with the Practice is as comfortable, relaxed, and stress-free as possible. She personally believes that taking the time to listen and to understand patient's dental concerns will also help to ensure that they have a comfortable experience with providing quality customer service. In her spare time, Channa volunteers in the Mary Potter Hospice shop in Kilbirnie. Her hobbies include tramping, yoga and meditation.
Cynthia Mann - Dental Assistant
Raised in Wellington, Cynthia likes to work close to the friends and family who live here. She finds it important to work efficiently and effectively to help Phillip and the team maximise their ability to help others. In her spare time she loves to relax with her pets, or have fun road trip adventures with her family and friends.
Rowena Chin (CA) - Practice Manager
Rowena (Phillip's wife) has been with the Practice since its inception but with a background financial role. As the Practice Manager she ensures the smooth running of the Practice. She can adapt to the roles of Dental Assistant and Front Office Coordinator as and when required. She enjoys working in the great team environment where everyone works together. Her interests include going to the gym, watching basketball, travel and designing jewellery.
