Richard Otley


Richard graduated from Otago University with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 1984.
In addition to working in the UK, he practiced alongside his father Jim here in Whakatane - and has been providing quality dental care to our community ever since.

Richard has a special interest in oral surgery, including wisdom teeth and dental implant placement.

When he isn't busy helping his patients to meet their oral health needs, you will likely find him out fishing!
