Dr James Au BDS (Otago)


James is aware that the majority of patients are uncomfortable in the dental chair so he strongly stands by his motto: ‘Care for your patients and perform dentistry on them, the way you would want it performed on yourself.’ That is why he established Victoria Street Dental with the aim of providing the highest quality care.

James graduated from the University of Otago and began his career in Wellington at various private practices accumulating an immense amount of experience including the widely known practice ‘Gentle Dental Centre’. Because of his passion for dentistry and the drive to provide high-quality care, he has since furthered his knowledge by attending countless continuing education courses worldwide.

James enjoys all facets of dentistry from simple single-tooth restoration to full mouth rehabilitation. He has a special interest in dental implant, gum graft, and orthodontic dentistry.
In his spare time, he enjoys staying active by playing soccer and going to the gym as well as indulging in a nice meal out.
