Dr. Sahba Rohani
I came to New Zealand from Iran in 1997 to complete my education.
I finished high school with an “A” Bursary from Logan Park High School in Dunedin, and then did my Bachelor of Dental Surgery at Otago University. graduating with high grades. I completed one year of study in the USA and completed the National Board Dental Examination Grades I and II through the American Dental Association.
I had several years experience in the public sector in Auckland at Greenlane and Middlemore hospitals, working in the specialty fields of Oral-Maxillo Facial Surgery, Oral Medicine, Emergency dentistry as well as attending to patients with special needs ie. medically compromised patients such as those with heart, kidney or liver conditions..
From 2006 I have been in private practice, first in Auckland and then becoming the proud owner of Relax Dental in Hamilton in 2008.
Summary of my approach to dentistry:
- Prevention: My emphasis is on prevention which is the key word and the secret to maintain a lifelong healthy mouth and smile.
- Retention: It means retaining all oral tissues intact and in a good shape and health. Remember it is not only about teeth! Oral tissues include bone, gingivae, teeth, salivary glands, muscles, nerves and also the temperomandibular joint (TMJ). While each of these has its own specific function, they are designed to work in harmony, therefore if one becomes compromised, the rest may be damaged.
- Caring and Low-stress environment: I understand that visiting the dentist can cause anxiety. I make every effort to care for each patient as an individual, and minimise stress as much as possible.
- Quality and Conservative treatments: All measures will be taken to carry out treatment in accordance with the highest standards of professional dentistry.
