Dr John Hodgson graduated in 1973 with a BDS and in 1982 with a MDS in Orthodontics from the University of Otago.
You could say dentistry runs in his blood, Dr Hodgson’s own father was an orthodontist and he says he has fond and fascinating memories of assisting him many years ago.
Dr Hodgson describes the work he does as a form of art and says he loves seeing the joy in his patients (and parents of patients) once treatment has been completed.
John graduated with a BDS from Otago University in 1971.
After graduating, John undertook postgraduate study in orthodontics. A five year term as a lecturer in Orthodontics at Otago University preceded him joining Dr W Hodgson (Dr John Hodgson's Father) in specialist orthodontic practise in Papatoetoe in 1985.
