We welcome Dr Jonathan to Smilefocus!
You trained in Otago. What do you miss most about New Zealand?
Having a dishwasher and owning a car! I also enjoyed going out on a boat or a kayak to go fishing which is a bit harder to do here.
How many years have you been practicing in Singapore and what brought you to Singapore?
I worked in Singapore for almost 3 years before returning to Auckland. We missed Singapore so much that we are now back again and planning on being here for the long term
Favourite travel spot within 4 hours of Singapore?
NZ is tucked down the bottom of the world so the travel here is amazing. It’s slightly further than 4 hours but I am very fond of Amed in Bali. It’s a quiet area and there is some great diving and snorkeling there.
What do you enjoy most about dentistry?
Interacting with and meeting new people. I like helping patients have a nice experience at the dentist.
What do you enjoy doing here in Singapore?
Taking our dog out for a walk at nights and exploring different parts of Singapore.
Name the 4 people you would invite to your perfect dinner party and why.
My family. We are all spread between the UK and NZ so we haven’t been all together for over a year now.
Last movie you watched?
I watched Free Solo at IMAX which was great.
What food do you miss most from New Zealand?
Fresh produce. I grew up in Hawke’s Bay, which is known for its horticulture and farming.
