We are excited to welcome Dr Ian Kuan to the McIntosh Dental team. Ian is a locally born and raised West Aucklander, and is actually a past patient of McIntosh Dental!
Ian’s comprehensive education includes a Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) from the University of Otago and the Primary Examination from the ‘Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons’. He was also awarded the prestigious Excellence in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopaedics “Young Dentist” Scholarship towards completing a mini-residency in Orthodontics through renowned Orthodontic specialist Dr Derek Mahony.
Ian is excited to be working in the region that he grew up in, providing quality dental care to the local community. He loves working with and assisting local communities, and has helped coordinate community-driven projects both inside and outside the world of dentistry.
Outside of work Ian is a big fan of the outdoors and enjoys photographing beautiful scenery. One of his goals is to complete all of the ‘Great Walks’ in New Zealand. He is also learning to ride a motorcycle. And for downtime, he says you can’t beat relaxing with a good book.
Ian will be working closely with Dr McIntosh, co-diagnosing and co-treating his patients.
