Dr David McKelvey:
I have been with Symes de Silva since the end of 2010 when I graduated with a Bachelors of Dental Surgery awarded with credit. I pride myself in a high standard of patient care, where one of the most rewarding aspects of my profession is being able to get patients out of pain. I enjoy working together with my patients to improve their oral health and overall wellbeing, no matter how long it has been since their last visit. I include patients in the treatment planning and delivery process so they feel empowered and informed about their options and that they are getting the best treatment available.
I enjoy all of the many aspects of dentistry where I aim to deliver high quality treatments through keeping up to date with modern techniques and constant improvement of my own skill set.
I currently provide surgical services under local anaesthetic and IV sedation, as well as urgent pain relief, repair of broken teeth, general restorative, prosthetic and cosmetic dental procedures.
Most of my extended family lives in the Wellington region and I am happy to be living in my hometown. I enjoy travel, running, snowboarding and live in the heart of the city where I make the most of the vibrant events and outdoor activities on offer.
