Skill and compassion go hand in hand when providing exceptional patient care

As a dental professional, I stay up to date on the latest advancements in dentistry in order to provide the most current treatment options for my patients. As a doctor, I recognise that my patients are unique individuals who have placed a great deal of trust in me and my team.

Dr. Ronnie Colle, studied in Pretoria, South Africa and received his Bachelor’s in Dentistry in 1983. As a top of the class student, he also completed a two year post graduate course in Progressive Orthodontic Systems, in Sydney, Australia. These Progressive Orthodontic Systems are recognised world-wide, including the United States and Europe, for utilising the latest technology available. With 32 years of experience behind him, Dr. Colle knows how important it is to stay up to date with the latest technological advances in dentistry, specifically in the field of orthodontics. He is registered with the Dental Council of NZ and is a proud member of the NZ Dental Association.

He is joined by his lovely wife, Janel, a very talented and dedicated artist who also finds the time to look after the business side of the practice. No practice could run effectively without an excellent dental nurse to act as Dr. Colle’s right hand! Raluca has been qualified as a dental nurse since 2012. She is also a qualified pre-school teacher, which means she knows the importance of being gentle with her patients. Raluca recently became a very proud Mummy!

We are a tight-knit team of highly qualified, compassionate professionals. We stand by the fact that we provide the gentlest possible care. Don’t wait another day! Schedule an appointment and allow us to help you maintain that beautiful smile.

I’ve been to Tusk Dental twice now. I found Dr Cole to be very nice and professional. I felt at ease when I walked in, his staff are very generous and his place of work is immaculate and clean. I am definitely getting all my future treatment done by him.

Patient First Attitude! Dr. Cole is an excellent dentist whose main priority is making sure his patients are comfortable and get the best dentistry he can offer. I would fully recommend Dr. Cole to anyone who needs a dentist!
