Dr Neill Bradley

Neill is a highly skilled dentist who has built up many years' experience since graduating from the University of Otago’s Dental School 1978. His practice has been a part of Lumino since December 2010.

Neill enjoys all aspects of his work equally. Highlights of his work include meeting and interacting with people and gaining their friendship and trust. Neill continues to develop his skills and knowledge through taking courses and attending conferences at every available opportunity.

Dentist

Dr John Pope

John joined Lumino in November 2011 and has over 30 years' dental experience since graduating from the University of Otago in 1982. John continues to attend conferences and meetings to keep up-to-date, because dentistry has changed so much since he graduated and he believes in the importance of ongoing professional development.

John’s interests lie in modern dentistry – saving people from traditional dental problems and making a real difference to their health! He enjoys most aspects of general dental practice – and considers himself a dental decathlete!

In his spare time John likes to travel, participate in a range of sports and music - especially golf and playing the guitar.
