ANTHONY HUNT (BDS BMUS)
With more than 20 years experience in the dental profession, dentist positions held in a dozen dental practices in Auckland and London, and an unrelenting attention to detail, Anthony is perfectly positioned to provide the highest degree of exceptional oral health care for those who wish to keep their smile for life.
Using an empathetic approach, Anthony is a skilful listener, ensuring his patients’ needs are met while at the same time nurturing an understanding of any issues that are discovered together. Utilising the latest in 21st century digital tools including intraoral photography, instant digital X-rays, 3D scanning technology and thorough visual assessment, no stone is left unturned.
With over 10 years experience in a raft of latest 3D CADCAM technology from Cerec and E4D to 3Shape, along with a deep understanding of dental occlusion, function, and aesthetic smile design, Anthony is one of the few dentists who is able to recreate complete smiles in-house if required for heavily filled, broken, worn, decayed, missing teeth.
A state-of-the-art onsite dental lab is where Anthony himself creates all manner of dental-related restorations and appliances including tooth coloured Emax and Zirconia crowns and bridges, wax copings (for gold crowns), Emax porcelain veneers, temporary PMMA crowns, and milled clear PMMA Michigan bite splints to name but a few. These are all created using 3Shape Trios 3D scanning technology, Dental System Premium CAD software, Roland CAM software and 2 x Roland mills (wet 4-axis and dry 5-axis) along with Programat CS3 crystallising and S1 sintering furnaces.
Dr Hunt is a highly skilled dentist, and has naturally slanted towards complicated oral rehabilitation as indicated early on in his career when awarded the Prize for Restorative Dentistry in his final year at dental school. What you can expect from him is well-above-average oral health care. Anthony prefers to take the time to do things right, as accurately as possible, rather than as quickly as possible. The knock-on effect is better quality treatment that will last much longer, look much better, and feel more comfortable on average than the alternative. One only needs to ask his staff of this reality who have worked alongside many a dentist, and can vouch for the integrity, quality care and holistic approach Anthony incorporates into his dental practice.
