Sarah Cruickman

Dental Surgeon

I am originally from Dundee, Scotland and I graduated in 2004. I spent the following 5 years working in Edinburgh and Dundee working in both NHS practices and the Community Dental Service treating dentally anxious and special needs patients. I also completed my membership exams (MFDS) with the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh.
I moved to Hawkes Bay in 2009 for a 2-year working holiday and loved it so much that I decided to stay in the Bay. I consider New Zealand to be home now. I worked in private practices up there and was a member of our local New Zealand Dental Association. Our family made the decision to move to Christchurch this year and I started with Longhurst Dental in February.
I am interested in all areas of dentistry and I aim to provide quality dentistry in a safe and comfortable environment. I regularly attend dental courses and conferences to keep up with the latest innovations and techniques.
Outside of dentistry, I spend my time with our young family experiencing everything that Christchurch has to offer. I have always loved to travel and I am looking forward to exploring a new Island!

Born in Liverpool and trained as a dentist at the London Hospital Medical College qualifying in 1986. A few years working in London followed in various dental practices part time, as well as getting a qualification in Forensic Odontology in 1988 (LHMC) and then working part time as an Honourary Lecturer also at the London Hospital.

I enjoy all aspects of dentistry and keep up to date with current changes in dentistry attending many courses and lectures. I am a member of various proffesional bodies including the NZ Dental Association, where I am a Past president of the local Canterbury Branch.

The Forensic side of my career is busy too. I am the Forensic Odontology Co-ordinator for Canterbury, West Coast and Nelson working for the Police and the Coroner. I was deployed to Phuket after the Boxing Day Tsunami to help identify the victims of the Tsunami. Most recently I was the DVI Dental Ante-Mortem and Reconcilliation Co-ordinator for the Christchurch Earthquake.

My partner of 30 years Charles and I live with our 3 great kids who always suprise me and make me proud. My interests include travel, reading, theatre, music, other people and anything I have not done or seen before.

I graduated from Otago University with a Bachelor of Oral Health in 2015. Coming from a dental background initially, I pursued a career down the dental hygiene and therapy pathway. I thoroughly enjoy all aspects in the role of being a dental hygienist and therapist, with particular interest in the prevention of dental and periodontal diseases.

Being born and raised in Christchurch, I love the outdoors and have just recently begun participating in triathlon events.
