Residents have say on traffic woes „„ By Julia Evans FENDALTON residents will now get a say in addressing road safety issues in thie area. It comes three weeks after Nor’West News revealed a memo from city council chief executive Karleen Edwards, which said the issues on Glandovy, Straven and Idris Rds could be “sufficiently

addressed” by having a work shop with the community board, not the public. But the FendaltonWaimairi-Harewood Community Board has vetoed the instruction. But resident James Wilding holds reservations that the city

David Cartwright

council could still exclude the public. “The board has recognised the validity of the community’s concerns. We now hope that the city council does so also and swiftly

Karleen Edwards

addresses them,” he said. Dr Edwards said she is satisfied the board has made its decision on the matter with the community’s interests in mind. “The board agreed that, an around the table, informal meeting with all parties would be the best approach, rather than a

more formal working group.” Chairman David Cartwright told Nor’West News the board wants to create a “three-legged stool” made up of the board, city council and residents. “If you only have two of those legs, the stool falls over,” he said. A date for that meeting has not yet been set but Mr Cartwright said it would be within a fortnight.

Inside

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK TOP MARKS to the FendaltonWaimairi-Harewood Community Board for getting behind residents and their traffic problems (see page 1). Karleen Edwards, the city council’s chief executive, and one very powerful individual, decided on the back of a staff recommendation to stop residents getting too involved in solving the traffic issues. That went down like a lead balloon with residents which Nor’West News reported three weeks ago. Now the community board has stood up to Dr Edwards and council staff and said residents should be a part of solving the problems. That means the issue won’t be thrashed out by an exclusive elected members club and their private workshops with few people knowing what has been said or discussed. Commonsense has prevailed. - Barry Clarke

News Skate park sites revealed „„ By Julia Evans SITES IN the Papanui Ward have been identified for a skate park but it could be up to 12 years before anyone gets to use it. City council staff narrowed the search for the suitable location for a park to Bridgewater Drainage Reserve, Craighead Reserve and Edgar Macintosh Park in Papanui or Owen Mitchell Park and Redwood Park in Redwood. The report said Owen Mitchell Park on Grimseys Rd is the

most suitable. “There is space between the public toilet and playground that has suitable separation and natural surveillance from neighbours.” More than 20 other sites were identified, including Papanui High School, but were ruled out due to proximity to neighbours or space issues. The investigation came after the Papanui-Innes Community Board responded to calls from young people for a skate park in the area. “Papanui is very short of

youth recreation facilities,” board chairwoman Ali Jones said. Currently, skaters have to go to St Albans, Burnside, Bishopdale or Belfast to find the closest park. Ms Jones said the board is throwing around the idea of expanding the concept into a larger indoor youth facility that would include a skate park. She said that is something that would be looked into further before pitching the proposal for the city council’s 2019-29 Long Term Plan.

An estimate of required funding for the skate park would be about $360,000 over three years. In year one, $20,000 would be required for site investigation and selection, engagement with the public and preliminary design. The second would require $40,000 for more community engagement, detailed design and resource consent. Construction of the park itself would be about $300,000, which includes free wi-fi. The cost would change if a larger facility was approved.

St Andrew’s students play leading role in film awards The top two awards at the Canterbury Secondary Schools’ Film Festival were taken out by St Andrew’s College students.

JELLIE PARK UPGRADE Jellie Park Recreation and Sport Centre is set for an upgrade and repairs starting next month. The pools will be repaired and the indoor hydroslide will be replaced. Other work includes fixing cracks, painting and repairs to flooring, walls and ceilings, as well as upgrading fire systems and replacing wet area flooring with a non-slip, hard-wearing material. It will be done in stages over 18 months. ACCESS TO THE GROYNES Work on widening the road access to The Groynes Reserve is almost finished. Work is continuing on the replacement and upgrading of an existing culvert where it crosses the causeway at the entrance to the reserve. Widening of the road will allow for two-way traffic, as well as pedestrian access on both sides of the road over the causeway. MAIN NORTH RD PROPOSAL Public feedback on the city council’s plan to overhaul Main North Rd is open until Friday. The proposal is to prioritise public transport down the street in a bid to decrease congestion with a variety of upgrades, including a full-time bus lane. A “have your say” can be found on the city council’s website before the proposal goes to the planning stage.

Veterinary practice

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF VET MICHELE Last month, our super vet nurse Megan wrote about what a nurses day is like at our clinic so I thought I’d give you a little insight into one of my marathon 12 hour Tuesdays, that must start with a flat white! I typically arrive in after 9am due to organizing our teenage lads for school in the morning and walking Lola before our big 12 hour Tuesday. I will then assess, liase with the hospital nurse and devise a plan for any of my sick hospital patients from the previous day. Sometimes I will pass an intensive care patient of mine onto Catherine if my day is full surgically. If there is time before consulting I will phone clients with patient updates or call them in the early afternoon when I’ve finished consulting. Typically I consult seeing patients for 3-4 hours in the morning and then again another 3 hours during the evening. By the time Tuesdays rock around my consulting schedule is almost full so when distressed clients phone with a very sick pet, obviously we will see them but they have to be squeezed into an already full block of consulting. If on arrival they are in urgent need of attention, either I will see them or one of our expert nurses will triage the patient, often take bloods, place a catheter and advise me of their findings. Every patient that rings is seen that day and often we see patients from other clinics because they cant be seen that day at their own Practice. It is common place that during my morning consults I have admitted sick patients for either blood testing, intravenous fluids, xrays or ultrasounds, dentistry, exploratory surgeries, or just observation. I will check on these patients progress, review any blood test results or findings, ring their owners if necessary and work out a treatment plan with the hospital nurse for that day. Once the sickies are dealt with, I turn my attention to the surgical board in which all my surgeries are highlighted in green pen! This past Tuesday was a little insane... Heres my list for that day1. Right Stifle surgery in a sweet 1 year old Golden Retriever called “Bonnie” to repair ruptured ACL ligaments. Bonnie blew her ACL ligaments in both stifles while out exercising with other dogs, so the left is yet to be repaired in 2 weeks depending on how she’s coping after this surgery. 2. A right femoral pinning and wiring in a young cat “Simba” to repair a fractured femur probably caused by a collision with a car. 3. Full shoulder and elbow, spinal, lumbar and hip xrays in Murphy, a 12 year old chocolate Labrador with an annoying persistent right foreleg lameness. 4. A sick, lethargic Chinchilla called Pickles who needed syringe feeding through the day. 5. A Caesarian in a 2 year old Pug called “Geraldine”, who gave birth to 1 live puppy, with 2 unfortunately dying. All in all I have absolutely no time to eat, drink or get into any trouble!! All the above need to be finished with and owners rung by 4pm when I start all over again with consults. Oh I forgot to mention that somewhere in the

NOR’WEST NEWS

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

day I have a board full of messages to call clients regarding their pets blood or pathology Geraldine and her one little puppy. results, medications requirements, booking in surgeries, queries from other vets or just general advice inquiries. We also look after sick animals for the SPCA and Cats Protection league. We will get a call alerting us to how far away they are and what sort of patient we are seeing, whether a medical or surgical case. That can happen anytime in our day so we fit these consultations around everything else. I feel very good being able to help these less fortunate animals and hopefully give them a chance at recovery and a great life. A day in MY LIFE is a hugely busy, fast paced one where I need to make so many important decisions in a day on the health and well being of the patients in my care. There is no time to second guess yourself, communication between my staff and my clients is key and I need to be very organized and able to prioritise all the patients in my care needing my help. We are so fortunate at McMaster & Heap to have such a highly skilled, clever and practical group of vets and nurses to be able to bounce ideas off when a difficult case needs a plan. Honestly I LOVE my job – actually it’s a priviledge to be able to help animals in the way we can and do. As you can see, every day is extremely different, very challenging at times with difficult medical cases or surgeries but the buck stops with me so to speak. I leave after my 12 hour shift very tired and hungry! But with a big smile on my face knowing that I’ve made a difference in many animals lives that day and so have my fabulous team.

Chrys Horn – Change is scary but lack of change is even more scary given how much our car habit is costing all ratepayers in congestion, anger, frustration, not to mention climate change, ill health and lack of traffic safety and the rates needed to build parking buildings. There is no such thing as a free park. James David Foote – Less parks on the road will make the area much safer. Mia Griffiths – Stupid idea. Pamela Neil – It is a very congested area and it will be better for drivers as well as the buses. Rich Brown – The city council is always full of great ideas as long as somebody else pays. Ray Boyer – You can never get a park there any way?

Stella Li of China Kitchen and Tim Sieg of Super Liquor are upset with new bus lanes on Main North Rd.

Stephan Lance Gardiner – I think they don’t understand how bus lanes work. And no parking is not going to stop business. Kyle Falcon – It is bad enough for parking there now. Maraea Cracknell – The parking behind mobile garage area need to be addressed too. Pot holes after poles. Readers respond to the article regarding Grassmere St residents’ concerns regarding access to their street

Dorothy Suckling – Notice the concerns on Grassmere St, Papanui. For those wanting to make a left turn from Grassmere St onto Main North Rd, there is no provision.  If a cautious driver wants to make a right turn onto Main North Rd it is impossible, so you can wait a very long time to turn left. There is quite a lot of cars coming from the rest home wanting to turn left at that corner and one car wanting to turn right can hold up quite a few.  You have to be quick and forceful to push your way in. Trust something will be able fix the problem.

Teen picks up award for invention „„ By Julia Evans MICHAEL HANN decided he’d skip the Papanui High School senior prize-giving last Tuesday. Flying up to Auckland to attend the ASB Bright Sparks awards evening was a better offer and it was worth the trip. Michael, 18, and his natural disaster security device TEMS won first place in the senior engineering category. Michael saw a problem he could solve when medication and hearing equipment was stolen from a North New Brighton home during the tsunami evacuation after the Kaikoura earthquake last November. So he designed a security system to be deployed in a natural disaster when the power goes out. The invention acts as a battery charger for devices and a place to keep belongings locked inside during a disaster. It also has an alarm to keep houses safe when evacuated. It is triggered by the rocking caused by an earthquake and lights up an exit path. Michael’s now working on connecting TEMS to an app which would send a text if someone breaks in. Although he’d checked out

BRIGHT SPARK: Michael Hann with a prototype of his security device which won a Bright Sparks engineering award. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

the competition, Michael wasn’t expecting them to read out

his name. “It was really cool . . . I had a working protoype,

so I was hoping that would be enough,” he said. He attended the evening with his father, a bit of an inventor himself. “We didn’t get to go out and celebrate. We had to fly back to Christchurch the same night,” Michael said. The top prize came with a new mobile phone and a cheque for $400. Even though he was absent at his school prize-giving, Michael was awarded $1000 by Papanui High as well. He said it was a good night all round, one he’d never forget. The success doesn’t stop there – Burnside High School year 11 student Felix Backhouse came second in the Bright Sparks engineering category for his invention Birds iView. The device is a drone which monitors bird populations with hyper spectral imaging. Burnside year 13 student Jack Breurkes also won the software category with his Mobile Physics Game, a tool to help NCEA level two students study for physics exams. ASB head of innovation and commercialisation Leigh Angus said the company is proud to be involved in a programme that nurtures brilliant young minds.

Another bid for lights at intersection „„ By Julia Evans THE BATTLE to get traffic lights at the corner of Breens, Harewood and Gardiners Rds continues. The FendaltonWaimairi-Harewood Community Board, led by city councillor Aaron Keown, has been pushing for an upgrade at the contentious intersection Aaron all year. Keown Cr Keown said he has been contacted about the issue more than any other over his 10 years of being elected. But funding for the upgrade failed to make it into the city council’s Annual Plan, not gaining enough support from city councillors around the table. However, the board has confirmed it will be including yet another bid to get money allocated in the upcoming Long Term Plan. A city council staff report said the city council was aware of the board’s plan. “The board will continue to advocate for this project to be a priority,” the report said. The board is hoping the project will be completed as soon as possible.

Merivale’s famous Traiteur butchery turns 25-years-old

„„ By Julia Evans SOMETIMES Maarten and Anthea Loeffen work 18-hour days but they say it has all been worth it. Tomorrow marks 25 years since the pair first opened the iconic European butchery, Traiteur, on the corner of Aikmans and Papanui Rds. Mr Loeffen said over that time, the business has become part of the family. “Our three daughters all work in the shop part time . . . staff and their families, too, we all look after each other,” he said. There are several celebrations on the cards. Long-serving suppliers will be personally thanked, and customers will get a day of coffee and muffins. The butchery’s staff and the Loeffen family are all planning a dinner out, even though Mr Loeffen said they hadn’t decided where yet. “It’s Show Week so everywhere is busy,” he said. According to Mr Loeffen, the secret to Traiteur’s success is: “We always say yes.” Every customer has their favourites: A slice of cake, fresh

is selling more and more preprepared meals. Although he wasn’t sure whether people really knew what busy was. “When I go to work at 2am, the busy people are still asleep and by the time I get home at 8pm, the busy people are already watching television with their feet up,” he said.

MEDBURY SCHOOL has a new headmaster joining the team next year. Ian Macpherson, who is currently head of middle school at Brisbane Boys’ College, will make the move across the Tasman. Prior to that, he held the positions of deputy headmaster – operations and head of middle school at Anglican Church Grammar School in Brisbane. He and his wife, Elizabeth, will both move to Christchurch in January. Medbury trust board chairman David Hiatt said the

school was very impressed with Mr Macpherson and listed his credentials. “His experience, his ability to inspire, his understanding of the unique learning needs of boys, as well as his passion for encouraging creative young minds,” Mr Hiatt said. He said he was looking forward to Mr Macpherson joining the team next year. “Mr Macpherson has a strong vision for learning, which balances Medbury’s unique traditions and Christian underpinnings, alongside innovative strategies and technology,” Mr Hiatt said.

NZ’s top speller back where it all started

SHOWTIME: The cast from Rangi Ruru Girls’ School and Christ’s College will perform their version of High School Musical next week. ​

Extra night announced for Rangi, Christ’s sell-out show WHEN DISNEY’S High School Musical hit television screens 11 years ago, millions of people tuned in. While not as many will see the Rangi Ruru Girls’ School and Christ’s College version, all six shows sold out in one day. Director Hannah Clarkson confirmed an extra show has been added to the season. Rangi Ruru director of theatre arts Peter Rutherford said he’s thrilled with the speedy sell-out. “High School Musical remains

one of the world’s most popular television films ever and I am sure that has played a significant part in tickets selling out in a day,” he said. Musical director Henare Kaa said everyone has been humming the music since rehearsals began. “The songs are really catchy, I can’t get them out of my head. The cast and crew are having a ball in rehearsals and we can’t wait until opening night.” With a plot described by the author and numerous critics as

a modern adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, High School Musical is a story about two high school juniors from rival groups – Troy Bolton, captain of the basketball team, and Gabriella Montez, a shy transfer student who excels in mathematics and science. A additional matinee performance is being planned and will take place before November 22. •Tickets will be available at www.rangiruru.school.nz or at the school office

„„ By Julia Evans THE COUNTRY’S top speller headed back to her former classroom to let Selwyn House pupils in on her secret to success. St Margaret’s College student Lucy Jessup won the New Zealand Spelling Bee in October. But her love for words started long before then. “I’ve always loved reading and writing from a young age. By the time I was about fouryears-old my granddad and I would read child encyclopaedias together, and my grandma has always given me books and recommendations,” she said. The classroom at Selwyn was really where Lucy began to hone

the craft. She puts her success down to reading. “The best way to improve your spelling is to read a wide range of books that you enjoy. If you enjoy what you are reading and are interested by it, it is easier to become interested in the words themselves.” Selwyn House team leader for years 1 to 3, Gill Patterson-Kerr, said it was fabulous that the year 3 pupils could welcome and spend time with Lucy. “All the girls reflected upon their spelling programme and could imagine that the result of their efforts could see them achieve at this level,” Ms Patterson-Kerr said.

News TRANSPORT: Residents struggling to walk home from the bus stop outside Northlands Shopping Centre are unlikely to get a another installed. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

Wheels come off battle for extra Papanui bus stop „„ By Julia Evans A BID to get an additional bus stop in Papanui has hit a road block. City councillor Mike Davidson asked staff to investigate the possibility of another stop on Main North Rd after fielding calls from elderly residents living around Northlands Shopping Centre. The residents told Cr Davidson they struggle to walk home from the super stop outside the mall and the next bus stop on Main North Rd is too far. Cr Davidson suggested a new stop be put between Mike the super stop and Vagues Davidson Rd. He said there is more than 600m between the current northbound stops but city council regulation is 500m. A new bus stop would replace one which was removed from outside Countdown during construction of the Papanui Parallel cycleway. However, city council staff recommended the idea not go ahead. A staff report said a bus stop between Grassmere St and Sawyers Arms Rd would result in most of the on-street parking being removed, which would be of concern to shops on the corner. The report said it would also be unsafe due to the proximity of the cycleway and add significant delays to bus times. “This would be at odds with the primary purpose of the Main North bus priority project, which is to improve public transport reliability along this section of the network,” the report said. A stop between Sawyers Arms and Vagues Rds “would not reduce the current walk distance” as it could only be placed outside 107 Main North Rd, the report said. Another reason given was that a second bus stop on the opposite side of the road would need to be installed. “As a general note it is not recommended to install a single bus stop. Bus stops are installed in pairs,” it said.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY... HOW TO BARBECUE PERFECT RIBEYE STEAK

AVOCADO AND CARAMELISED PINEAPPLE SALAD

Ingredients

Ingredients

Ribeye steaks, at least an 1.5 inches thick Olive oil Salt Fresh ground black pepper

2 Tbsp Brown sugar ½ Pineapple, peeled 2 Tbsp Butter 3 Avocados, firm but ripe ½ Red onion 100g Blue cheese, creamy ½ Red chilli 2 cups Salad leaves, washed

Directions Preheat your grill to high heat. If you have a sear burner and a steak that is more than an inch thick, get one side of the grill going at about medium-high in case you need to cook it through a little more after the sear. Remove the ribeye steaks from their packaging and rub them down with some olive oil and then coat a generous amount of salt and freshly ground black pepper. The olive oil provides just enough fat to help the salt and pepper create a great, caramelised crust. Clean and lubricate your grill grates with some cooking oil on a rolled up piece of paper towel (using tongs, of course). Place the ribeye steaks on the hottest part of the grill and then stand ready with the tongs.

Dressing 1 Orange, zest and juice 1 Chilli, finely chopped 1 tsp Ground cumin 4 Tbsp Avocado oil 1 to taste Salt & freshly ground pepper At this point, you are on flareup watch. The fat dripping off of the steaks could create a flare-up. If a flare-up occurs and doesn’t go away in a few seconds, simply use your tongs to slide the steaks away from the open flame until the flame dies down and then move them back over the heat. Continue to grill with the lid open for about 4-6min. Flip the steaks over onto the

other side, still over the hottest part of the grill. Grill the ribeye steaks for an additional 4-6min on the other side, lid open, for a medium-rare delicious steak. Remove the steaks from the grill and allow to rest for 5min before serving. The resting period is important so that the juices don’t run out when you cut into the ribeye, so be patient.

Selwyn House and Medbury Volleyball girls team saddled up for second take out division

for St Andrew’s

SPORTS „„ By Andrew King A COMBINED Selwyn House and Medbury schools team finished second at the inaugural primary show jumping event in the senior section. The event was held at the National Equestrian Centre, McLeans Island. Meg Glassey, Eva Johnston and Sophie Thomas, of Selwyn House, and Harry Burt and Robbie Cochrane, of Medbury, rode in two different categories, which were split up by height. The team’s mascot – a pug named Danger Mouse – was also at the event to support them. Eva, riding Double Take, and Harry, riding Kennebrook Whispering Sand, both competed in the 65cm section. Sophie, on Toffee De Lux; Meg, on Willowmead Playboy; and Robbie, on Inspector Gadget, competed in the 80cm section. Each rider competed in four rounds of show jumping, with the course slightly altering each time.

SUPPORT: Selwyn House pupil Eva Johnston holds onto the team mascot Danger Mouse.

The judges take the four best scores, two from 65cm and two from 80cm, from each round and the team with the lowest penalties is crowned the winner A team from Villa Maria won the event. Team manager Belinda Thomas said it was great to see an event like this start up for young riders. “It gives the kids, who are

very committed to this sport, an opportunity to ride for their schools,” she said. “The Selwyn House-Medbury team did extremely well finishing second, with loads of clear rounds very close to the optimum time. Technically, they rode extremely well. The top three teams were only three marks apart. So the competition was tough.”

„„ By Andrew King THE ST Andrew’s College girls team won their division at the junior volleyball championships at the weekend.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Hip pain: Do I have arthritis or could it be mainly my muscles?

T

he team at Physical Sense in Sydenham sees clients with a range of symptoms but many of their middle-aged and senior clients visit complaining of pain in one or both hips. Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests that a major part of the pain could be due to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis. “Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason for the pain may be the muscles around the joint,” she explains. Alternatively, a back muscle could also be the cause, as shown in the image. Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year old client with severe arthritis who walked with a stick, told her, “I will end up in a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight through my right leg due to pain in my hip and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she was walking with her stick but without the severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was one of the factors that made her muscles spasm but the other was that older people move less and the flexed position the hip is in when we sit is particularly bad for the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that although the client was 89 and could have been “given up on” or told to live with the pain, she made a difference to

her health and wellbeing. At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques (massage and triggerpoint deactivation techniques) are used to release the muscles. The client also gets a home exercise program designed to mobilize and stretch the hip, strengthen the important core muscles and increase general strength and balance. They

teach a movement sequence that stretches the hip in all directions whilst the client is able to lie safely on their bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients. In many cases having the muscles released and being taught how to maintain it, is enough to stay on top of the problem. If severe arthritis is the underlying cause, some

maintenance therapy may be necessary, but that is often more affordable and, for older patients, better tolerated than surgery. In very few treatments the client will know if it is going to work for them or not, without financial commitment.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door and there is ample parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

USE THE RED CROSS ADVANTAGE - COMPREHENSIVE FIRST AID, ESSENTIAL FIRST AID, REVALIDATION OR TAILORED TRAINING TO SUIT yOU AT yOUR PLACE OR OURS.

Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues, but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or on to the sports field? not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social. take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

hypothermia and poisonings. The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far behind those in the workplace. The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard 6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk environments. This course covers many of the skills required to deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes such as motor vehicle accidents. if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the course content and give you options that will best suit your needs. Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where it is located.

Experience comfort! Experience technology!!! Dr Keith Chiang and his team at Fendalton Dental Surgery are excited to offer the very latest in dental imaging technology. They have taken delivery of several sophisticated dental equipment over the recent months. All designed to enhance patient diagnosis, improve their comfort and safety during dental procedures by upgrading to the latest available. Keith believes in constantly updating himself with recent advances by attending several courses in NZ and overseas. “Each course teaches me something new and makes me revisit Dentistry with a renewed passion”.

Keith with the CBCT

The newest arrival is the Cone Beam Computed Tomograph (CBCT), which provides a 3D image of the patient’s jaws and teeth through the latest digital imaging technology. As Keith explains, the current digital X-rays shows only a 2D image. The image is crisper but it sometimes leaves a few questions unanswered. Now with the complete 3D technology, he is able to have a much better understanding of problems in the patient’s mouth. “It’s a huge game changer and takes diagnostic imaging to a totally different level. It’s like having Superman’s extra pair of eyes to help with the diagnosis,” he says. “And it saves time as patients do not have to be referred elsewhere for the scans as we have the CBCT machine in our practice and the scan costs cheaper comparatively too”. The Surgery has also acquired a stateof-the-art patient sedation monitoring system, Capnograph, which is used for patients under IV sedation. Surgical or Dental treatment under IV sedation is an area of special interest for Keith, who is a dental surgeon, and he has carried out more than 1800 IV procedures since 2008. “Patient safety is our utmost priority when they are under sedation. Our Capnograph monitors their vital signs namely the respiratory gaseous exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide levels, heart rate and Non-invasive intermittent blood pressure throughout the procedure. This not only

The Fendalton Dental team benefits the patient, but also gives the dentist a sense of reassurance.” Associate dentist, Dr Zohnia McNeill has a keen focus in cosmetic and restorative dentistry, restoring the smile for people of all ages and from all walks of life. She shares the same passion for dentistry and is happy to put a smile back on the patients face. Oral Health Therapist, Amy Lee is dedicated to looking after the Oral hygiene of the patients. Her role involves treating gum diseases, educate people about care of
