Dr Jim Han grew up in Howick, Auckland and went to secondary school at Macleans College. He completed his Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the University of Otago, and provided general dental care to families of Wellsford, Upper-North Auckland for 5 years before deciding to return back home to East Auckland. Jim has obtained an International Congress of Oral Implantologists Fellowship, and completed a two year course in Progressive Orthodontics in Australia. Jim has special interests in cosmetic dentistry, dental implants and orthodontics.
One of Jim’s best qualities is his attention to detail and positive patient communication. Jim is very patient and takes the time to pay attention to the smallest detail. This virtue of patience shown by Jim to explain what is required and to get things done right the first time is what sets him apart from others. As the old saying goes, “Do as you would be done by”. This is the simple philosophy that Jim employs to his dentistry. Whether it be a couple of fillings or a complete smile makeover, Jim believes in treating other people the way he would like to be treated and this has been working wonders for him. Jim has a very calm, gentle and composed way about himself that patients have come to admire and love about. Jim is very experienced in making anxious patients feel at ease after just their first visit with him. He provides reassurance to his patients by listening to their concerns and focuses on providing a positive experience to every patient.
Outside of work, Jim is a foodie, who makes a special hobby out of trying new cuisines and tastes. He is a keen fisherman, always looking to go fishing whenever the weather and time permits. He is known by his friends and family as a big technology and computer enthusiast if there ever was one.
