Dr Robert Ayar
I graduated in 1991 with a BDS and worked in private practices in Auckland and New Zealand. After a few years, I decided to settle down in Rotorua (New Zealand), so I bought my own practice and worked in it for a few years; but I always had that urge to advance my knowledge, so I did.
I studied at Otago University in Dunedin, in 2001 I achieved a Postgraduate Clinical Diploma in General Practice. Then in 2003, I achieved a Master Degree Clinical MDS in General Practice. My Clinical Master Degree thesis was in Root Canal Therapy and Crown & Bridge.
I taught undergraduate students at the University of Otago as a tutor while doing my Master degree. It was fun teaching, I really enjoyed it!
I feel it is very important to continuously educate myself and always be aware of the latest advancements in oral health and dentistry, I have taken numerous Post-Graduate courses in Cosmetic, and Implant Dentistry and regularly update my knowledge in the field by attending both local and overseas courses and conferences.
I have a Fellowship in Implant Dentistry from California Implant Institute, member of the Australian Dental Association, New Zealand Dental Association, California Implant Institute.
The most precious thing for me is spending time with my family, in this crazy rushed life we live in, family time is important. I love watching my two boys play soccer for Banksia Tigers any chance I get. We have 2 naughty dogs, Perky and Sparky and I love walking them.
I really enjoy cooking (not as good as the people in Master Chef though), love eating and trying different cuisines.
I work and live in the area, it’s great to say hi and have a chat with my patients outside of work.
Thanks for visiting our site, I do look forward to meeting you.
