Claudia joined Medford House in 2014 from Dunedin. Claudia spent her first years as a dental house surgeon in Australia. Since returning to New Zealand she has worked in general practice in Dunedin and taught part-time at Otago University Dental School.

We are very lucky to have Claudia’s skills and expertise here at Medford House. Claudia shares the preventive vision of ensuring everyone can and should have a healthy mouth for life.

Rushdah’s family emigrated to New Zealand from South Africa in 2001 and in 2005 Rushdah joined Medford House after attending Hamilton Girls High School.

Rushdah has spent time continuing her studies in Auckland for a couple of years and we were lucky that she could rejoin us in 2013. Rushdah’s calm, perceptive nature is true asset to our team.

Medford House: Cherie and Vicki

Hygienist / Dental Therapist

Cherie joined the dental profession straight from high school. After a few years she ventured to Auckland University of Technology (AUT) and completed a dual degree in Dental Therapy and Dental Hygiene. Cherie has been with Medford House since 2010.

Hygienists are the engine room operators of a prevention-focussed practice. While dentists have to accept they are not people’s favourites professionals, virtually everyone looks forward to their regular visits with Cherie.

Vicky Hughes


Vicky has recently joined the Medford House team after emigrating from Mother England. Vicky brings years of experience dealing with the British health system and the ever-interesting general public of England! We love having a cultured, loyal follower of Will and Kate on our team.

Medford House: Chris and Carol

Chris Quirke

Practice Manager

There are very few clients of Medford House that don’t know Chris well. Having held the reins of practice manager for 15 years, Chris has come to know all our patients well.

Chris continues to be the smiling, cheery face of the front desk.

Carol Boase


Carol is the other cheery, smiling face greeting clients at the front desk. Carol’s calm and warm personality is just what’s needed at the front desk of a busy dental practice.
