Grahame Dutton

 

I graduated from the University of Otago in 1990 with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery. The following two years were spent in windy Wellington in private practice and then as a second year house surgeon based at Hutt Hospital.


It was then time for the big OE which started with in sunny Coffs Harbour working in private general practice and hospitals performing oral surgery.  My surgical interests then led me to a position as a Staff Grade Oral Surgeon at the Edinburgh Dental Hospital. This was supplemented with private practice jobs and nips, tatties and haggis. Returning to NZ took six months traveling through Eastern Europe, Africa, Nepal, India and Thailand before settling in the beautiful city of Christchurch.


In 1996 my wife Christine and I established Duxton Dental utilising all the positive experiences, knowledge and skills gleaned from our previous years of working in other practices and hospitals.


In our drive to provide the optimal experience for our patients, in 2002, we designed and constructed our current purpose built surgery at 22 Bartlett Street, Riccarton.


My philosophy is perfection with a smile. As a dental surgeon I aim to provide optimal dental care that will stand the test of time. I believe it is our obligation to research and implement new technologies and techniques into our practice. This has meant an enormous commitment to continuing education and the purchasing of equipment to match the advancements. Our treatments are minimally invasive, biomimetic (mimic biology), best practice and are evidence based. I am confident we offer the best in world dentistry today.


I am blessed with a beautiful family - my wife and business partner Christine Duxbury and our 4 children - Millie, Meg, Lucas and Josh. In addition to spending time with my children, I am passionate about sport - both playing and supporting my children. I currently play soccer and touch rugby, jog, swim, bike and have just started yoga. I also enjoy fly fishing, sailing and wine appreciation.

When Grahame and I began Duxton Dental, in 1996, we had a vision to create a dental practice that had an environment and atmosphere that made people feel comfortable and well looked after.


Everything has been planned in minute detail to achieve a place where both patients and staff alike look forward to going to.


We have focused especially on extra courses to up skill ourselves and have purchased the latest technology to provide the best dentistry we can. The other focus has been on providing the best possible customer service. To do this we have employed an amazing team of staff who all have similar goals and by constantly upgrading our people skills and services in order to provide the best dental experience we can.


I am very proud of what we have achieved so far and look forward to the challenge of continual improvement.


Career History


After graduating from Otago University in 1990, I worked as a Dental House Surgeon in Wellington Hospital for two years. Immediately after our wedding Grahame and I headed for Coffs Harbour in Australia where we spent an idyllic eighteen months working in private practice. Europe then beckoned and I sampled NHS dentistry and had some fascinating experiences as an Oral and Maxillo-facial House Surgeon in Scotland.


Our two year OE was interspersed with exciting trips to Egypt, Israel, Africa, Nepal, Finland to name just a few. On returning to my home town of Christchurch we had the challenge of buying a home, a dental practice and starting a family all within the first year back. Life has been exhilarating ever since.


Ongoing Professional Development


As a private dental practitioner I am dedicated to the need to continually educate and up-skill myself in order to provide optimum dental care.


At Duxton Dental we currently achieve more than double the number of continuing education hours required by the New Zealand Dental Association.


Interests


Working three days a week and parenting four children certainly keeps me out of mischief! Life is fairly hectic but when I get a spare moment I enjoy reading, dancing, exercising, and most importantly, spending time with friends and family.
