My name is Manish Latch and I am a general dentist at Smile Dental. I currently work at the Henderson, Kelston, and Te Atatu branches. I am originally from India and moved to Auckland over 20 years ago. I graduated from the University of Otago in December 2018.
For many, going to the dentist is a scary thought. However, I believe it doesn’t have to be this way. It can be an empowering and positive experience and that’s what I aim to provide each time a patient walks into the clinic.
I provide a full range of dental services, with a particular interest in endodontic and restorative treatment. I always aim to provide gold standard treatment to my patients. I believe a holistic approach must be taken in dentistry which is why I don’t just treat the tooth, but the patient. I ensure my patients are comfortable and fully informed. This is done by taking time with my approach and incorporating humour into my appointments. Laughter is the best medicine isn’t it?
When I’m not working I have a wide range of hobbies that keep me occupied in my free time. These include playing sports and music to name a few.
