Dr Haidar Al-Hassiny

DENTIST / DIRECTOR

About Haidar

There are few things I find more satisfying then helping my patients reach their dental goals.

Coming from a family of dentists, Dr Haidar has followed his father’s footsteps and applied himself to this field. He has extensive experience offering cosmetic dentistry and orthodontics to a wide group of people. Having graduated with his BDS from Otago University he found experience in rural dentistry and then came back to be closer to his family in Wellington. When the opportunity came to be part of a new team and new clinic that is looking to provide the best of the best treatment to the people in Wellington, he jumped at the idea.

He is a proud father of 3 (2 boys and a girl) and is experienced in all aspects of dentistry. Dr Haidar is passionate about meeting people and their families. He loves to help guide and treat them to better oral health. When he’s not in the clinic (which is hardly ever), he spends time with his two boys and wee girl and sometimes you may seem them strolling around the Hutt.

About Divya

Being an overseas trained dentist, I was really interested to get a job in New Zealand’s dental industry so that I can be surrounded by the field before I take a big step of registering and seeing patients.

One of favourite things about this practice is all this amazing technology we have, my particular favourite is 3D scanning when I am orthodontic assisting with Haidar. It’s great to be able to do a full scan of one’s teeth and not have to take those old yucky impressions like we used to.

Also, it’s fun to change their ties to different colours and watch their teeth get straighter month-by-month and see that smile on their face get bigger. I also really like our team here at Central Hutt Dental. We all get along and work is always happy and very positive.

When I am not at work, I am usually travelling around New Zealand with my husband and in the future after our family gets bigger I plan to travel overseas and see more of the world.

About Nur

Flew to NZ for my degree in BA (Media Studies) but fell in love with dentistry the minute I started working as a dental assistant. I find it fascinating how dental work is similar to art. Even better! Seeing how the dentist could do ‘editing’ on patients’ teeth for a better smile has been keeping me in this field.

I am eager to learn. My goal is to gain knowledge as much as I can and enhance my skills alongside the dentist I’m working with. I believe providing the best assistance to the dentist can create a favourable patient’s experience and outcome.

When I’m off work, I love to go out and take photos. Most times, I spend my day cleaning, organising and decorating.

About Sandra

An opportunity to work with Central Hutt Dental has opened the chance to grow and explore the possibilities of dentistry in New Zealand for me, being an overseas trained dentist. It’s the moment we step outside from the culture of work life and training we were exposed to, that we understand in depth the real possibilities to expand and grow in our horizon of work. It gives me immense pleasure to be part of such a prominent presence in the field of dentistry in New Zealand.
