Dr Haneen Alayan
After working in Dunedin and Gore for the past 5 years, Haneen has finally returned home to Christchurch on a permanent basis. When Haneen is not fixing teeth, which is admittedly rather rare, she can usually be found playing football, or in places she probably should not be. She is nature’s biggest fan and enjoys many adrenaline based activities that some people may classify risky. That being said, the one thing she would never take risks with is your oral health.
Haneen loves most aspects of general dentistry but enjoys complex procedures that require precision and attention to detail the most. She prefers to save teeth where possible which has led to a love of root canal treatment. She really enjoys the artistry that comes with restorative dentistry and has a lot of experience with cosmetic dentistry, crown and bridge work and full mouth reconstructions. Transforming a smile is one of the things she finds the most rewarding.
Haneen has one main goal for her career and that is to get rid of the ‘murder house’ reputation that dentistry has had for decades. She loves working with the dentally anxious and helping them get past their fear of the dentist.
Haneen has a real passion for her work and feels extremely blessed to be able to do something she loves on a daily basis. She is really looking forward to establishing herself in Christchurch once again.
