Get to Know Us


Dr Raniga headshotGrowing up, Dr Raniga was terrified of visiting the dentist. In fact, she may have bitten their fingers more than once. Her father challenged her at a young age, telling her that if she thought she could do a better job, she should. From that point forward, she wanted to become a dentist and help others with a gentle, patient and respectful approach to care.

Dr Raniga obtained her BDS from the University of Otago, graduating in 2007. She currently holds memberships with the NZDA, NZACD and ADA. In order to provide the best care for her patients she continues to participate in professional development course, recently completing some relation to paediatric dentistry, dental trauma, implanvology, restorations, porcelain veneers and more.

“One of my favourite parts about being a dentist is seeing the smile that comes after a patient’s confidence has been restored in their teeth.”

Outside of Work

When she isn’t crafting beautiful smiles in the practice, Dr Raniga enjoys playing tennis, baking, reading novels and working in her garden. Get to know more about her when you visit us for your next appointment–she looks forward to welcoming you into the practice.
