Dr Lia Dessy-Moore, BDS, NZDREX - Dental Surgeon

Lia joins us from Argentina, where she studied her Bachelor of Dental Surgery, tutoring in Biophysics and then working in general dental practice with her sister for 7 years, She also completed a 2 year Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Dentistry at the University of Buenos Aires in 2000 . The story might have ended there had she not met and fallen for her kiwi husband in Buenos Aires in 2003!

She moved and settled in Queenstown with him and sat the New Zealand Dental Registration Examinations, which enabled her to work as a dentist for us! With her relaxed style of treatment and her keen interest in complex restorations, crowns, bridges and dentures she brings 20 years of experience and a friendly and smiling vibe to our workplace. 

Outside of work she enjoys travelling with her husband and 4 year old daughter, snowboarding, skiing and riding her new electric bike, where she can now beat everyone up the scenic Queenstown hills!

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
