Dr-Sergei-antipenko-x150.jpgMaria Mendoza


Maria was born and raised in the Philippines. She trained and practised as a dentist in her home country before moving to New Zealand in 1995, where she found work as a dental assistant.

Since becoming a hygienist for the Proudmouth practice in Takapuna, Maria has gained a loyal following of patients – both old and young.

“I really like meeting people from different cultures and nationalities. At Proudmouth in Takapuna, we also have a lot of older patients - they have very different dental needs to younger people.

“Hygiene treatments can be uncomfortable if your gums aren't healthy, so I'm very gentle until the gums are in better shape. Little by little we'll get your oral health sorted out”.
