Chris originally comes from the UK, and after a spell running Lumino Dent Street, in Whangarei, Chris has relocated to our Red beach practice to be closer to his partner.

Chris' career in Dentistry has taken him from rural practice in Wales, through two years in private practice in Swaziland, Southern Africa, and back again. Chris made the move to New Zeland in 2017 for a more active, outdoor lifestyle.

Chris enjoys all aspects of general dentistry and has a focus on patient centered practice, putting his patients at ease and providing high quality care in a relaxed atmosphere. He has an eye for detail and particularly enjoys the aesthetic results gained with crown and bridge work. Chris likes to keep up-to-date through regular conference attendance and professional development.

In his spare time, Chris enjoys tramping, running, and keeping fit. He has a real passion for travel, and recently completed the Mongol Rally, driving from the UK to Mongolia to raise money for DentAid.

Dr Chris Shorrock is in Wednesdays from 10.00am to 7pm, and Thursdays 8am to 3pm
