Harish started his career in hospital dentistry in the area of facial trauma based at Middlemore Hospital working under consultant oral and maxillofacial surgeons.

Harish is a practical person, intent on getting the job done efficiently, painlessly, and with compassion. He wants to treat everyone as if he were the patient himself. Therefore, his interest lies in the practical art of delivering the best endodontic care using well established and proven methods.
