Justin is a visiting orthodontist from Bay Orthodontics in Tauranga. He has regular appointments available at our practice, though you will need to book through Bay Orthodontics on 07 577 0916.

Inspired by his own experience of Orthodontic treatment as a teenager, Justin is passionate about helping both kids and adults achieve healthy, beautiful smiles. Originally from Ireland, he completed his dental training at University College Cork. He graduated with an honours degree receiving awards from both Irish and UK dental societies for his academic and clinical work.

While working as a general dentist in the UK, Justin completed a 3 year Masters degree in Aesthetic Restorative Dentistry at Kings College London.

Justin has successfully completed Orthodontic specialist examinations at both the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh and the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons. He was awarded the William Houston Gold Medal for achieving the highest mark amongst Orthodontists sitting the Royal College examinations across the UK, Australia and UAE. He also received an award from the British Orthodontic Society for the standard of his orthodontic clinical work.

In 2018, Justin made the move to New Zealand and is proud to call Tauranga his home. He is married to a Kiwi, Kimberley, and they have two young daughters. When he's not straightening teeth, your likely to see Justin out running or spending time with his young family.
