Libby Shepherd

My name is Libby and I am the Dental Hygienist at the Octagon Dental Suite. I began working here in November of 2016.
My career in dentistry began in 2008 as a Dental Assistant and after three years in that position I decided to take it to the next level and enrolled at the Faculty of Dentistry here in Dunedin. I completed my Bachelor of Oral Health at the end of 2013 which gave me a dual scope as a Hygienist and a dental therapist.
Since graduation I have worked in a busy downtown practice in Wellington but was excited when the opportunity arose to move back home to Dunedin to live and work.
As a hygienist I enjoy meeting people and am very attentive to their needs. I go out of my way to ensure that patients are comfortable both with me and what I do. I also like to empower my patients to take control of their oral hygiene as a common goal of this practice is to maintain teeth for a long and healthy life.
When I am not at work I love to cook and entertain friends and family, take long walks with my dog and travel.
I look forward to looking after your oral hygiene needs.
