Pearl Allen
Cosmetic Dentist

Dr Allen Baker

In 1987, Allen was instrumental in starting New Zealand's first-ever emergency dental surgery. This meant he was often dealing with dental trauma, which taught him just how much is possible. He brings this experience and skill in reconstruction to his work in appearance dentistry and the results speak for themselves.

Over the years, Allen has continued to build upon his professional qualifications, notably his skills in appearance medicine, where he creates beautiful smiles, and also in new technologies such as the use of 3D imagery and robot-controlled porcelain sculpting.

You may have seen Allen on TV in the series 10 Years Younger, where he transforms his patients' smiles. Allen not only gives his patients a more youthful appearance, he restores their teeth to health and function.

Allen is now accepting new patients.

Stacey graduated with a BHSc (oral health) from the Auckland University of Technology (AUT) in 2016.

Her main dental interest is in holistic health and she hopes to get people interested in and taking responsibility for their oral health outcomes. 

Stacey enjoys meeting and interacting with people. She likes working at Lumino because of the great work environment and the people she has met so far. She also enjoys the focus on work/life balance which something she believes everyone should strive for.

Outside of the practice Stacey enjoys eating out at restaurants. Asian fusion is her favourite but she also loves trying new things and new places. Stacey enjoys cooking too and thinks her tonne of enthusiasm makes up for her lack of skill.

In her spare time, Stacey also loves to travel and managed to squeeze in one last holiday to Japan for Christmas before the world started to close in January 2020. She's excited for things to start returning to normal and would love to go to Greece and travel a bit of Europe.

Stacey lives in the beautiful North Shore in Auckland, surrounded by beaches where they like to go paddleboarding. She enjoys venturing out west and north of Auckland to find new walks and Hikes to do as well. She loves running and keeping active, reading and gardening.

Her favourite place to be is at the beach. Summer is her favourite season. Lying in the sun on an island is her dream at the moment.
