Since graduating, José has attended numerous courses including the world renowned post graduate one year Cosmetic Dentistry & Aesthetic Restorative Dentistry course in London. He was also recognised as a finalist of the prestigious Private Dentistry Awards as Best Young Dentist in the UK.

Before moving to New Zealand, José worked in prominent private dental practices in Central London providing high-end treatments to his much loved patients.

To complement his dental services, José also provides wrinkle reduction treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers, providing a conservative administration to achieve a natural, youthful result.

José believes it is essential to listen to each patient's vision as every patient has a different desired outcome and only this way he can tailor the smile design to your needs and attain durable results which live up to expectations.

He is a member of the New Zealand Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the New Zealand Dental Association as well as the Waikato and Bay of Plenty branch. He has also published articles for the NZ Herald and The Weekend Sun.
