Liam Dury
University of Otago
Bachelor of Dental Surgery

Hello, my name is Micah, and I am one of the dentists at Tauranga Dental House. I was born and raised
in Tauranga, completing all my schooling here. I then headed down to Dunedin to complete my Bachelor
of Dental Surgery at the University of Otago, graduating with distinction. Following this I worked as a
Dental House Surgeon in Dunedin Hospital before shifting to work in a dental clinic in Gisborne. These
varied positions have given me experience in restorative, paediatrics, surgical and community dentistry,
which I am now excited to be able to offer to the Tauranga community.

Outside of work you will find me dragging my family and friends out surfing, kayaking, fishing, mountain
biking, snowboarding, hiking and running. I love the wide range of outdoor activities available in the Bay
of Plenty and am glad to be back!

I thoroughly enjoy my work finding great satisfaction in helping people achieve and maintain a smile
they are proud of. I am passionate about disease prevention, early disease management and minimally
invasive dentistry. As part of this I strive to educate my patients about ways to improve their oral health
at home and discuss the best treatment options for them. I endeavour to provide an approachable and
friendly dental experience with your preferences as my priority. I am a member of the New Zealand
Dental Association and regularly take part in opportunities for furthering my dental education. This
helps to keep me up to date with the latest practices so I can offer the best services to my patients.
I look forward to working with you!

“I went to see Kane a dentist at Tauranga Dental House. I had a broken tooth. Kane explained what needed doing, a crown was made, it fits like a glove. He showed me images of what was happening, which were very interesting. He was very caring for the two visits needed. I highly recommend him. Thank you, Kane.”
