Dr Helen English
Dr Helen English completed her Masters in Periodontology with Distinction from the University of Otago in 2005, gaining her Royal Australasian College Fellowship that same year. She subsequently established Nelson Periodontics, the only private specialist periodontal and dental implant surgery practice in the top of the South Island of New Zealand.

She has lectured at numerous conferences including the International Academy of Periodontology, ANZAP, NZDHA, NZAO meetings and the RACDS Convocation.
She has also been awarded a New Zealand Dental Research Foundation Grant to undertake specialist practice-based research into subgingival delivery devices for periodontitis lesions in conjunction with the University of Otago and the University of Zurich, Switzerland. She runs hands-on courses and lectures internationally for numerous organisations, including the Swiss Dental Academy, and is proud to be involved in continuing education for her colleagues.
