Lumino Manawatu Dental

Meet Our Team

Bruce Wilson

Dr Bruce Wilson

Bruce has practiced dentistry in Palmerston North for nearly 40 years. In 1995 he established the present practice in a new purpose-built facility. Because of his extensive experience and commitment to ongoing professional education, Bruce can offer a wide range of treatments. In fact, we rarely have to refer clients out of the practice. Bruce's particular interests include orthodontics, implants, laser treatments and cosmetic procedures.

When away from the office Bruce enjoys travel and "leisure" time is spent in apiculture and tending to the 9 acre, nationally recognised country garden that he and his wife, Sandra, have established.
