DR Melissa Inger

My first university qualification was a degree in neuropsychology, which I completed with first class honors from the University of Auckland. I then completed my Bachelor of Dental Surgery degree with distinction from the University of Otago. Several of my summer holiday periods were spent carrying out research, funded by four summer research scholarships. From these I have been able to publish two journal articles which in turn enabled me to receive the New Zealand Dental Research Foundation prize upon my year of graduation.

All aspects of dentistry interest me, from restorative to cosmetic work, and I am able to carry out all procedures ambidextrously. I am committed to ensuring my patients receive excellent and personalised care.

I am passionate about health and keeping in shape. This is achieved through running and playing sports, with a major focus on volleyball.
