Meet the Team

Dr. Talha Gul
Dr. Talha Gul graduated from the University of Otago with a double degree- Bachelor of Dental Surgery and Bachelor of Sciences in Anatomy (with scholarship), before making the big move to Auckland and becoming a part of the friendly team at Greenhithe dental.

Talha is a gentle clinician devoted to providing you with a supremely comfortable dental visit. He has a great eye for detail and works tirelessly to achieve the best result with every treatment.

Talha has a great interest in providing charitable dental treatment to those in dire need around the world- having already volunteered in South East Asia and the Cook islands. Working out of his comfort zone and operating through the barriers of communication and culture have made him a skilled clinician and a better person. He feels it is an emotionally satisfying experience and looks forward to providing further volunteer dental aid in the future.

Talha loves spending the weekends with his family. In his free time, Talha enjoys having a good workout at the gym to stay fit. He plays squash and cricket, and doesn’t mind jumping into a friendly game of touch or volleyball. Apart from physical activities, Talha’s favorite past time would have to be movies!

I look forward to seeing you soon,

Talha
