Nitish Surathu and Sujatha Mathew, Lead Dentists
Team Amber is headed by Nitish Surathu and Sujatha Mathew who founded the practice in Gisborne in 2010. If you would like more information about them professionally please click here. Their vision was to set up a unique practice with advanced technology in an environment that values individual care and attention. They believe they have been able to realise that vision, but are constantly updating the practice and themselves to bring the best to their patients.
They are hugely community oriented and have been involved with support for various local causes over the years including The Sunrise Foundation,Autism New Zealand, St Johns Gisborne, The Sunny Day Trust, The Life Education Trust, Gisborne War Memorial Theatre Trust, The Women’s Native Tree Project Trust, Bethlehem Foundation, Fostering Kids, Sport Gisborne, Tairawhiti Multicultural Council, Lost Hope Restored, House of Breakthrough Trust, Eatsmart Tairawhiti (Gizzy School Lunches) and The Ruel Foundation. The Gisborne Girls Hockey Team is also supported by them through Amber Dental.
In 2019, they started their own charitable trust called the Amber Foundation to mark Amber Dental’s 10th year. Amber Dental works closely with the Amber Foundation to provide multiple free dental treatment days throughout the year and uses the Foundation’s mobile dental unit to provide much needed dental care up the East Coast.
Nitish and Sujatha firmly believe in approaching patient oral health with disciplined regular examinations and maintenance care, having realised over many years of practice, that there is no better way to keep the cost of care realistic. Central to their vision is the wonderful team they have surrounded themselves with who help them everyday to live their vision.
