Origionally from Oamaru, Donna Holder studied Dentistry and graduated in 1998 from Otago University. She worked at Christchurch hospital for a year as a Dental House Surgeon, before traveling and working overseas. Her love of NZ bought her back to Christchurch, where she worked in private practice for 12 years. The recent Christchurch earthquakes meant Donna and her family have relocated north to the Hawke’s Bay and she has now joined us at Clive Square Dental part time.

Donna is passionate about giving patients her full attention and providing high quality of care. She is interested in all aspects of dentistry, including crown/bridge, the new E4 D crowns (done in one day) root canals and general restorative work to maintain healthy mouths.

Outside of work, family keeps her busy- Donna is married to Richard, they have 3 young children and a black Labrador. In her spare time, she fits in running, cycling, reading and the odd movie.
