Kinjal Divecha

Kinjal Divecha, Oral Health Therapist

After Kinjal obtained her Bachelor of Oral Health Therapy, she’s been working to ensure patients just like you have the best possible experience in our care.

Kinjal takes pride in helping patients understand the importance of preventative dentistry-she believes that just as you take your car in for annual tune-ups, your teeth are no different. However, unlike a car, we don’t have a ‘check engine’ light-that’s why sticking to a regular oral health schedule is so critical for long term health.

In the practice, Kinjal loves interacting with patients each day and teaching them about proper oral health care. She hopes to help them learn to love their smile while making it beam brighter and healthier.

Outside of the practice, Kinjal loves to read, listen to music, travel and be creative. Learn more about her when you visit us for your next appointment.

To prepare for a career in the dental field, Keegan obtained a Certificate in Dental Assisting. For Keegan, the most fulfilling aspect of working in dentistry is getting to know our patients and helping the dentists meet the needs of their patients.

“When I’m not at the practice, I like to exercise at the gym, go for outdoor walks and spend time with my beautiful husband and family. I am from South Auckland and am a ‘fruit salad’ of Tongan, Niuean, Cook Island and European descent!”
