Registered Dentist

Arun Prabu

Hi, I’m Arun and I have been a Dentist with Dentistry on Parkside since June 2012..

I graduated in 2007 from MGR Medical University qualified with a Batchelor of Dental Surgery.  After having nearly 4 years of working experience in India I moved to New Zealand and completed the OTDE course in Dunedin Dental University becoming registered with the New Zealand Dental Council.  I have been a member of the New Zealand Sedation Society since 2014. In 2016, I became a member of the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons (GDP) and a member of the New Zealand Cosmetic Dentistry. Recently, I completed a Dental Laser Safety Officer course in Sydney.

My family and I moved to New Zealand, and I have thoroughly enjoyed becoming a permanent team member of Dentistry on Parkside.  My interests are with Surgical and General Dentistry but I have a special interest in Wisdom teeth removal, Implants and Preventative Dentistry.

I am currently doing POS (Progressive Orthodontic Seminars) along with Clear Braces.

I am married to Alar and have 2 children. We are loving the relaxed lifestyle in Ashburton and enjoy keeping fit, playing cricket and skiing in Winter.
