Bethlehem Dentists Tauranga

Meet Our Team

Bethlehem Johan Louw
Lead Dentist

Dr Johan Louw

Dr Johan Louw graduated from the University of Pretoria in 1982.

Dr Louw’s main professional gaol is to have happy patients walk out of the practice. He enjoys the satisfaction of a job well performed and the daily interactions with his patients.

Outside of the practice, Dr Louw enjoys the outdoors especially archery, cycling, motor biking and hunting. His favourite place to be is in the bush and he can’t live without his family and his dogs!

Dr Alix Stephen

Alix graduated from the University of Otago with Distinction in 2012. She has since gained experience working in Hospital Dentistry, Accident and Emergency clinics and now general private practice for the past three years. Alix enjoys all aspects of general dentistry and she is particularly interested in treating and managing patients with more complex medical issues and dental anxiety.

Alix moved to Tauranga in 2015 and has never looked back. If she is not at work you will find her at the beach, at the snow, on a boat or out and about walking her dog.

Georgia Crawford
Practice Manager

Georgia Crawford

Georgia’s goal is to make our overall patient experience smooth and comfortable from the moment the patient walks in, to the moment they leave.

She has a genuine passion for the dental industry, and she loves working alongside such a professional and experienced team. Georgia enjoys interacting with different people, the variety of the job and the challenges that each day brings.

 After recently moving to Papamoa, Georgia spends most of her spare time relaxing on the beach. She is also currently studying business (management) part-time to further develop her knowledge and grow as a Practice Manager.  

Before this role, Georgia was a Primary school teacher but once she found the dental industry, she never looked back!
