NZDA Roadmap to Better Oral Health for All New Zealanders

Speakers

Dr Mo Amso

Dr Mo Amso has been a general dentist for almost 15 years, working in both the private and public sectors. He worked for both Iwi and Pasifika clinics for several years and held the role of Dental Clinical Director for 5 years overseeing a group of three clinics across Auckland. Mo is currently the Chief Executive of the New Zealand Dental Association and maintains clinical practice treating special care patients at Te Whatu Ora Te Toka Tumai Auckland. In 2019, he was named NZDA’s Outstanding Young Dentist of the Year. As a migrant to Aotearoa New Zealand, Mo experienced hardship in affording dental care and his career has primarily been in community clinics treating vulnerable and low-income Kiwis. His vision for oral health is for it to be recognised as a critical part of general health and be appropriately funded. He lives in Auckland with his wife Sarah, sons David and Michael.

Dr Amanda Johnston

After completing BDS in Otago, Amanda lived and practiced in the UK for 5 years before returning to her hometown of Whangārei. Soon after returning to Northland, Amanda became involved in the Northland branch of NZDA, first as secretary, then president and later board representative. This gave her opportunities to develop further governance skills and to use her enthusiasm and passion for the organisation to help build and enhance membership services. Amanda was elected to the NZDA Board Executive in 2013, was a founding member of the Young Dentists Action Group and the Governance Sponsor of the NZDA Wellness Programme. In 2014 she was inducted as a Fellow of the International College of Dentists. She serves on the Board of Women Dentists Worldwide and is currently President of the NZDA. Amanda is married to Richard, has 2 daughters and works as a general dentist in Kamo, in beautiful Te Tai Tokerau.

Dr Robin Whyman

Dr Robin Whyman is the inaugural Director (Dental Policy) at NZDA. He is well known across the dental sector and beyond. His expertise and past roles include Executive Director at NZDA, Chief Dental Officer at the Ministry of Health, Chair of the Dental Council of New Zealand; and most recently Chief Medical & Dental Officer at Te Whatu Ora Hawke’s Bay. Robin maintains general practice dentistry in the hospital system and is a registered dental public health specialist.
