Mark Easton: Dentist
Joined Silver Birches in: 1983 because the partners at the time had an innovative vision for the practice. That vision was to have comprehensive care for South Canterbury people on one site. To achieve this each practitioner focused on a particular area of care. This enabled us to provide general dentistry, oral surgery, orthodontic, prosthodontic, periodontal, paediatric and special needs services at a level that was not readily available outside the four main centres in NZ.
Of course, things have changed a lot since those beginnings. The majority of dental practitioners have now aggregated into group practices and specialisation has increased markedly but Silver Birches Dental continues to be focused on meeting the needs of the people we serve, and we can only do this by operating as an integrated group drawing on the diverse skill set of all the Silver Birches team.
I am immensely proud to continue contributing to this practice and those for whom we care.
