Dr-Mike-Wu-DentistDr Mike Wu

Lead Dentist


Dr Mike Wu was an oral surgeon in public hospital in China for five years before came to New Zealand in 1995.

He gained the diploma in dental technology at Wellington (CIT) in 1999, then practised as a dental technician in Christchurch for a year. He moved to Dunedin for his further study in 2001, and graduated from Otago University with Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 2003.

He took over and has been practicing in Viva Dental since 2004, and enjoys performing all forms of dentistry. Dr Mike has a particular interest in oral surgery, crown and bridge and orthodontics. He also likes designing and making dentures with his strong dental technician back ground.

Dr Mike takes pride and finds enormous joy in taking care of elderly patients - sometimes even getting called out to visit the local rest home. He finds working as a family dentist in local community very rewarding.

Outside work, Dr Mike enjoys spending time with his family, swimming, playing tennis, traveling and just admiring New Zealand's amazing scenery and friendly people.
