Byron Bay Dental John Amsden

John Amsden

B.D.S (Otago)

John has been a dentist in Byron Bay since 1996. After graduating from Dentistry at Otago University in Dunedin, New Zealand in 1994, he spent two years practising in the Coffs Harbour area before making the move north to Byron with his wife and daughter. Their son was born in Byron Bay. Attracted to Byron Bay for the outdoor lifestyle, warm community and natural beauty, they fell in love with the area and have lived and worked here ever since. As a caring and friendly family clinician, John enjoys all aspects of cosmetic and general dentistry, including implant restorations.

He is an avid All Blacks supporter and when he’s not caring for patients, John enjoys fishing, diving, trap shooting and music festivals.
