Rucha understands the challenging and stressful nature of the profession and has strived to gain a reputation of being thorough and sincere with her peers and patients.

When not in the practice Rucha enjoys reading, painting and exploring new places with her partner in crime!

She is committed to the oral health of patients and believes that regular care is the best care. She also believes in the importance of educating her patients to enable them to achieve long term health. She encourages all patients to visit on a regular basis to have their teeth examined and cleaned, as the earlier any problem is identified, the less difficult and expensive they are to treat and the better the results. 

Lisa is experienced with nervous patients and takes extra care to be gentle, as well as thorough.

When she's not busy at the practice she enjoys the outdoors and renovating her 1950's property in North Canterbury.
