Dr Choi after hours
Dr Choi grew up on the North Shore before moving down to Dunedin for his training at University of Otago and Dunedin Public Hospital. After spending more than 10 years in Dunedin, he feels privileged to return to North Shore and look after patients from his home town where he lives today with his lovely wife Jae and his two kids.
He loves playing tennis and skiing with his family. Dr Choi is also a keen golfer which keeps him physically fit and mentally refreshed. His other interest, when the weather is not cooperating for outdoor activities is digital technologies innovation and its implementation in dental healthcare.
