Sene Ioane BSc, BDS


A Cantabrian born and raised, I returned home to Christchurch in 2014 and not long after joined the friendly team at QE2 Dental care. After graduating from the University of Otago with a Bachelor of Science and a Bachelor of Dental Surgery, I worked as a dental house surgeon at Christchurch hospital followed by a number of years in private practice in Perth, Western Australia.

I currently share my working week between treating patients at QE2 Dental and the Christchurch Hospital Dental Department. I thoroughly enjoy the variation and different challenges that both settings provide. Both environments have provided me with a solid grounding clinically; but also vital experience in managing patients with a complex medial history as well as managing those with dental anxiety. Becoming certified to provide intravenous sedation for those that are particularly anxious or require a more complex dental procedure completed has been invaluable.

I enjoy all aspects of general dentistry and I am committed to improving patient's dental experiences. I like to think that you will leave informed and reassured about any questions you may have about your dental health. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and anything else that allows me to procrastinate from renovating my 1930s Villa!
