Dr Patricia McIntyre DDS (Brazil)

Dentist/Owner

Dentistry is a huge passion for me and I can remember wanting to become dentist since I was a child.  I enjoy all aspects of dentistry but have a special interest in cosmetic work.  I find it so rewarding being able to change peoples lives by creating beautiful smiles for them.  My patients best interest is always my priority and I am really proud of the work I provide.  I graduated dentistry in Brazil in 2001 and gained my dental registration in New Zealand in 2005.  I have been working for Alf Johnson since 2006 and I had the exciting opportunity of taking over the practice from Alf in 2017.  I have two children and on our weekends we love family time at the Blue Lakes.  I love the outdoors and also enjoy attending the gym on a regular basis.

Dr Alf Johnson BDS

Dentist

I originally bought this practice back in 1972 when it was in Garden Place and am now very excited to hand the reins of ownership over to Patricia and Lisa.  Dentistry has changed a lot over time and I have witnessed massive strides in the development of the procedures and materials that we use in dentistry.  Patients are very lucky to have all of the different treatment options they have available to them including implants and supported crowns and bridges.  I practice all aspects of dentistry including orthodontics and am very experienced in tooth extractions, completing many cases on patients while they under general anesthetics.  I really enjoy my work and love the interaction I have with my patients - some of whom I have treated for over 40 years!  I have a passion for travel and now with grandchildren in Ireland, love to get over there every year or two.  We have a large garden at home that I enjoy getting out into and I also really enjoy fishing in my spare time.

As an Oral Health Therapist I am passionate at being able to provide dental hygiene services that help treat gum disease and the more severe forms of periodontal disease in our patients.  I find it so rewarding seeing patients become educated and motivated to take charge of their oral health, which in turn improves their overall health.  This is the reason I always place a massive emphasis on teaching the importance of at home care and prevention.  I received a Bachelor of Science degree in oral health at AUT university which I finished in 2008 and part of my scope is treating under 18 year old's with dental check-ups and restorative fillings.  During your adolescent years the role of preventative care is so important and helps to sow the seeds for an optimal oral health routine that will last your whole lifetime.

Lisa Chou-Lee

Practice Manager/Owner

When you phone or come into our practice it is quite possible that I will be the first person you speak too.  I took over the practice with Patricia from Alf Johnson in 2017 and my focus is to make your dental experience with us a positive one.  I love the interactions I have with our patients and nothing makes me happier than hearing a patient at the end of treatment talk about how pleasant their visit with us was.  We have such an awesome team at our practice and I love working in an environment that is filled with such enthusiastic, fun and talented people.  In my spare time I love hanging at the beach, attempting to fish with my family.

I am an NZDA certified Dental Assistant with many years experience in the dental profession.  When I am not at work you will probable find me out cycling on my road bike.  I look forward to assisting with your requirements and making sure you are comfortable at all times while you are in the dental chair.

I am a dental assistant and am quite new to the dental industry.  As long as I can remember I have had a passion for teeth so I get so much enjoyment being able to help the dentist create beautiful smiles every day.  I love how diverse dentistry is and find working with cosmetic cases very rewarding.  I am very excited about studying to gain my NZDA qualification in Dental Assisting next year.  When I'm not working I enjoy a lot of family time at the beach.
