Meet our Dental Surgeon and family Dentist, Dr. Reena Joseph, Wellsford Dental

With a tendency to shy away from the limelight and play down her strengths, Reena is a steady and experienced Dentist. Her quiet consideration of dental treatment is appreciated by her patients. She is the quintessential dental practitioner, bringing together a careful eye for detail and an understanding ear for every patient’s concern. Reena maintains a focus on the little things that make all the difference to our patients, connecting with them in ways that make them feel part of the Wellsford Dental family.

Dr Joseph is a registered general dentist in New Zealand, holding a Bachelor of Dental Surgery from Dr. M.G.R. Medical University, India, obtained in 2002. Between 2007 and 2012, she pursued a postgraduate doctorate degree (Ph.D. in Oral Implantology and Regenerative Dental Medicine) at Tokyo Medical and Dental University, Japan. Recipient of the ITI (International Team for Implantology) scholarship in 2012, this enabled her to gain valuable training at the Oral and Maxillofacial Department, at the Katharinen Hospital in Germany for a year. Additionally, Dr Joseph has conducted postdoctoral research at Showa University, Japan and has contributed to several publications in international journals.
Upon relocating to New Zealand, Reena successfully passed the Australian Dental Council exam in 2022, and has been working in various clinics across Auckland. Her expertise encompasses all aspects of general dentistry, with a particular passion for oral surgery (including wisdom tooth extractions), restorative dentistry (fillings, crowns, and bridges), and gum disease treatment.

Reena strives for clinical excellence while keeping a firm focus on her patient, and not just their teeth. Ongoing education is very important to Dr Joseph, and she is always working to be at the forefront of dentistry’s proven best practices and procedures. “I have come to see how dentistry blends art and science in such a beautiful way, and how it can make a huge impact on people’s health and wellbeing”
