Dr Vaibhav

Dr Vaibhav Talesara, or “Dr. V” to his loving patients, graduated with honours in 2007 from Maharastra University of Health Sciences, India. He then practiced under a well-Implantologist and a leading dentist, Dr  S. Nene. In 2009, Dr. V moved to New Zealand and completed the Bridging Course for Overseas Dentists at Otago University.  After working in a private practice for 7 years, Dr V and his partner Gideon ventured on a new journey creating their own little haven called “Grafton Dental” in 2017. Every detail of the clinic, right from logo design and clinic setup to patient care and management has undergone plenty of thought and attention to detail, with patient focus at the forefront. Dr V is an ardent believer in preventative dentistry and has a keen interest in cosmetic and aesthetic dentistry. Dr V is also trained in Botulinum Toxin injections for anti-wrinkle therapy and clenching habit. Dr V is currently pursuing his Masters in Aesthetic Dentistry at the Faculty of Dentistry at Otago University, and will return to practice in 2022. Dr V dedicates Grafton Dental to his greatest inspiration, his mother and brother!
