Mr Nigel Parr

Specialist

Profile

Nigel is a New Zealand trained Oral and  Maxillofacial Surgeon.

He graduated from the University of Otago  with a Dental Degree, a Medical Degree and a Masters in Oral Surgery.

He also spent several years extending his  training and surgical experience in the UK in surgical training programmes  where he obtained two fellowships to the Royal College of Surgeons In Edinburgh  and Ireland.

This experience has given him the  specialized skills to carry out many intricate procedures within the head and  neck region, especially in relation to wisdom teeth, dento-alveolar surgery,  oral cancer and other oral pathology.

Upon his return to New Zealand in 2000,  Nigel worked as a full time consultant at Auckland and Middlemore Hospital. He  soon started to develop his private practice and developed a role as a visiting  consultant at Whangarei Hospital before establishing in 2008 his own purpose  built Day Surgery facility in Green Lane.
