Stewart Taylor
BDS Otago

Born and raised in Christchurch, I ‘left the nest’ to travel the world in 2014 before embarking on my studies at the University of Otago.  I completed my dental degree in 2019, graduating with distinction.  I have spent the last two years working as a Dental House Surgeon at Hutt Valley DHB, where I have gained invaluable skills in oral surgery, urgent dental care and developed a special interest in Paediatric Dentistry.

I was drawn to the sunny Bay of Plenty to live my outdoorsy dream, enjoying the sand, sun and surf on the daily!  If I’m not out in the surf, you’ll catch me running trails in the hills or hitting the slopes at Mt Ruapehu or Wanaka, on my snowboard.

I endeavour to provide fully-informed, patient-centred and ethical dental care for all my patients, whether that be to children who are unfamiliar in the dental setting, or to adults who haven’t been to the dentist for many years.  I hope to change anyone’s mind who “doesn’t like going to the dentist” and instead have a positive and empowering experience.  With a huge focus on prevention and dental education, I strive to ensure my patients have the best oral health outcomes. 

My friendly, empathetic nature and compassion has allowed me to build strong relationships with my patients in my career thus far, which I hope to continue in Tauranga.  I look forward to meeting you.
