The friendly team at Ranfurly Dental Care
Ranfurly Dental Care in Epsom was founded by the husband and wife team of Paul Posa and Duchesne Hall in 1991. They both graduated from Otago University in 1986 and briefly worked as assistant dentists in Auckland practices before establishing Ranfurly Dental Care. Over the years, they have gathered a strong team around them.
Paul Posa BDS
Paul has worked full time and exclusively at Ranfurly Dental Care since 1991. He is accomplished in all aspects of general dentistry, including Crown and Bridge, Cosmetic, Root Canal Therapy and Implants. The quality and long-term success of his work is of the highest priority and he is committed to continuing professional education. He is passionate about prevention and assisting patients to take control of their oral health.
Duchesne has a particular interest in providing dental care for children and young adults. Duchesne held a part-time position of Senior Lecturer at AUT University from 2005 – 2012, teaching in the Bachelor of Health Science programme in Oral Health. She is a member of the Australia and New Zealand Society for Paediatric Dentistry, and is keenly interested in all things related to child oral health.
Leanne has a solid background in healthcare, having qualified as a Registered Comprehensive Nurse before leaving on her OE. In London she made the shift to dentistry and worked for six years within a busy practice. On returning home she trained as a Dental Hygienist in Dunedin, graduating in 1997.
As an experienced oral health professional, Leanne can remove plaque and tartar to leave your mouth with that “just cleaned” feeling. More importantly, she will provide individualised hygiene care that includes advice to minimise your risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
After working as chairside assistant for Duchesne for many years, Megan moved to become receptionist and practice manager. Being so familiar with all aspects of the practice helps Megan make your experience as streamlined and hassle free as possible.
Kelly is senior chairside assistant for both Paul and Duchesne and also works in reception. Like Megan, she is familiar with all aspects of the practice. She has been part of the team since 1996.
Lianne works principally with Paul as chairside assistant. She is highly experienced, having been a chairside assistant for many years. Lianne has been part of the team since 2003.
Stacey is the newest member to the team at Ranfurly Dental Care and works with both Paul & Duchesne as a chairside assistant - she is steadily gaining knowledge and experience.
