Dr Peter RucastleDr Peter Rucastle

Lead Dentist


Dr. Peter Rucastle is an experienced and passionate dentist from South Africa. He graduated from the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg in 1989. He has previously worked in the UK and has owned a successful practice in Johannesburg, Smile Xtreme Dental Studio, before relocating to New Zealand.
 
Peter believes in providing quality, affordable and lasting dental treatment options in a relaxed and virtually pain-free environment. He enjoys general dentistry but has a special interest in aesthetic dentistry, endodontics and oral surgery. He is a member of the South African Academy of Aesthetic Dentistry.
 
He aims to increase his surgical skills by attending implant placement courses so that he can offer patients the complete package in-house for implant restorative dentistry.
 
He is a competitive cyclist (both road and MTB) and enjoys leading a healthy lifestyle. He is also an aspiring master chef. As well as transforming smiles, in his spare time he enjoys using nature to create aesthetic gardens.
 
Peter relocated to Auckland from South Africa to achieve a healthier work-life balance, and experience all the outdoor and cultural activities that New Zealand has to offer.
