Wellington, New Zealand


About us:

After completing his post graduate studies in Dunedin Dr Graham
Symes saw an opportunity to establish a 7 day a week dental practice
in Wellington. In 1992 he set up a one surgery clinic on the ground
floor of the building that would later become Symes de Silva House
on Courtenay place. The practice was unique in that it charged
standard prices on weekends in contrast to the Wellington dental
emergency roster system that was currently in place. After building
a good reputation in the area, the practice expanded to include
more dental chairs and a number of associate dentists. Among these
was Ravi de Silva who returned from the UK to work with his dental
school friend Graham. After a year Ravi bought half of the operation
from Graham which was the start of Symes de Silva in 1998. Five years
later, the entire practice moved (in one hectic day) to its present
location of the 1st floor of Symes de Silva House. Over the years
Symes de Silva has built a reputation as a respected practice within
the dental community. As well as employing a number of long term
staff members, the practice has also been active in mentoring a
great many young dentists, hygienists and assistants. The practice
encompasses 8 surgeries and currently employs a staff of 30.
