Kia Ora, welcome to Turuki Smilecare
Turuki Healthcare Charitable Trust provides whānau-based health, wellness and social services to people in South Auckland. Their staff are local kaupapa Māori, with over 20 years’ experience supporting the community and delivering services in the Counties Manukau and Auckland DHB areas.
They had an existing dental clinic onsite at their Mangere premises and Dr Scott saw an opportunity to partner with Turuki Healthcare to first service the existing database of the Trust’s community and further grow the Oral Healthcare for Mangere and the wider community.
The Dental Practice re-opened in August 2018 with part time hours as they continue grow their patient base and provide oral health education and services in the community.
