Dr. Gaurav Taneja  BDS (Otago)
Dr. Gaurav Taneja did his schooling at Kelston Boys High School back in the days when Graham Henry (All Blacks Coach) resided as the dean. He obtained his Bachelor of Dental Surgery Degree from the University of Otago in 2001, and then went on to work in rural Queensland where he managed three dental practices in high needs areas.

Upon his return to Auckland, Gaurav served in a wide range of community practices across Auckland, and also managed a dental practice in Mt Albert for three years.

His vast experience in working in the community and with a wide range of whanau has led him to his journey to establish Mahu Dental in partnership with Raukura Hauora O Tainui Trust at Trust Healthcare Medical Centre.
