Dr Rob Kanagaratnam

Dental Surgeon

Rob & Tracey both graduated from the University of Otago in 1994 and 1992 respectively. They spent eleven years in private dentistry in England before returning to NZ in 2005 to start a practice of their own.

Evolving with Dentistry

Rob enjoys all aspects of clinical dentistry and takes pride in the fact  that Aesthetic Dental can offer nearly all services in house without the need for referall. “I have a particular interest in Implant dentistry and have been involved in this for the last 15 years. Dentistry is constantly evolving and changing and it requires us to keep up and ahead of the ball. We have invested heavily in technology such as our CEREC CAD CAM computer which allows us to deliver crowns/ceramic restorations to patients in ONE day.”


Outside the surgery Rob enjoys golf, skiing, fly fishing and making a drop of wine. ” Tracey and I believe it is important to try and achieve the correct work-life balance as this makes us better at what we do.”
