Dr Sherona SinghClinical Director (BDS)
Sherona is the principal dentist at White Smile Dental and practices here on a full time basis. She qualified in 1994 from the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg. After a number of years practicing in South Africa she moved to Surrey in the United Kingdom. She then worked for 8 years in a up market private practice. Eventually Sherona saw the light and moved with her family to the North Shore. She hasn’t looked back since!
She has always been highly motivated to be a good dentist. She works hard, pays attention to detail, and has an understanding and gentle manner with her patients.
She cares greatly about the high standard and appearance of her finished work and her patients needs and comfort through-out any procedure.
Sherona provides dental care for adults, young people and families. This comprises General Dentistry, Restorative Dentistry, Preventive Dentistry, Endodontics, Aesthetic, Cosmetic Dentistry and Invisalign. Sherona always ensures her patients are well-informed, and that decisions are based on knowledge. She understands that many dental decisions are not made lightly, therefore makes opportunities for questions and discussion of treatment.
Sherona, along with the rest of our dental team, regularly attends courses and seminars to ensure that the treatments and materials used are the most up to date available, thereby ensuring the best possible care for her patients.
Dentistry aside, Sherona enjoys travelling and spending time entertaining family and friends. Her four kids in particular take up most of her spare time!
