Surrounded by other health providers, we are your dental specialists.

Welcome to Hutt Dental Hub

Our brand new dental rooms have just opened their doors to provide our community in the Hutt valley with the very best general, cosmetic and emergency dental health care.

We form part of the Hutt Valley Health Hub in central Lower Hutt, bringing together a range of health providers conveniently in one central place. We are only a doorstep away from the GP, medical specialists and the pharmacy. But it doesn’t stop there, the Hub is built around a range of additional services such as an on-site childcare, café and direct links to public transport to create a social environment for you and your family and people of all cultures to spend time in. 

The Hutt Dental Hub follows the basic principles of the Health Hub. We believe that health and wellbeing, space and community are all linked together. Therefore we have a holistic approach to the architecture and interiors which goes far beyond a functional layout alone. The Hub spaces are designed to make the patients, visitors and staff feel calm, positive and inspired. They are bright, airy and easy to navigate. Plants and green feature walls break up overly clinical spaces and reinforce the centre’s relationship to the natural world.

Harnie Jo Dentist at Hutt Dental Hub - Dentist in Lower Hutt

Dr Harnie Jo

Dentist
After graduating with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery (distinction) from the University of Otago, I lived and worked in Gisborne, where there was no shortage of work. This provided me with a lot of experience in a broad range of general dentistry. I then relocated to Wellington a year and a half ago, where I have since been settled.

My favourite aspect of dentistry is assisting people to improve their oral health related quality of life, which empowers them to maintain their oral health over the long term. This can come in a variety of forms for different people including but not limited to relief of chronic pain/acute pain/discomfort, improving one’s ability to chew and eat, and improving the appearance of their smiles. Seeing the effect that this newfound confidence has on other aspects of their life is very rewarding for me.

I highly value effective communication. It is of utmost importance to me that patients have understood the findings of dental examinations and the details of management plans. I will ensure this by taking my time to thoroughly talk this through and answer questions during both the consultation and treatment stages.

Ruby Assistent at Hutt Dental Hub - Dentist in Lower Hutt

Ruby

Dental Assistant
I started my journey as a sterilisation nurse. Naturally as time progressed I wanted to do more and stepped into the role of dental assistant. I’ve always thought about being amongst the healthcare industry, dentistry was always at the back of my mind and I always had the urge to find out more about it. Once seeing what the dental assistants do here at the clinic with the wide variety of aesthetics, restorative, general health, and wellbeing I find everyday unfolds something new.

What I love most is being able to sit side by side with our patients. Being able to provide support through their entire dental experience ensuring they feel as comfortable as possible. As well as seeing their smile transformation and increased knowledge about their overall oral health. In my spare time I like to get myself to a yoga class, being able to connect my body to my mind leaves me feeling refreshed and content.
