Lead Dentist

Dr Rob Young

Rob established the three Smile Creations practices, beginning with Waikanae in 2006, then Levin in 2007 and Otaki in 2008 before joining the Lumino group in late 2011. He is a highly skilled and experienced dentist, having graduated in 1986 from Otago University.

The part Rob enjoys most about being a dentist is restoring someone’s smile. His dental interests lie in cosmetic dentistry and implants.

Outside the practice Rob loves getting involved in his community through his work teaching Kung Fu.

Pamela Rose

Pam was employed as a Dental Assistant at the newly opened Waikanae practice in 2006.  The following year she completed her Dental Assistant certificate.  Pam then moved to our Otaki practice in 2011 where she is currently based.

Pam enjoys catching up with existing patients returning for treatment and loves to hear the good comments from the patients.  She will always remember one comment from a lady saying she was the happiest woman in Otaki because of her teeth and the way they looked after her treatment!

Pam spends a lot of time in her garden, loves to cook or spend time with her friends.
