Our Team




Wendy Key

Dental Hygienist

After a stint as an air force photographer, Wendy graduated from Otago in 2000 with a Diploma in Dental Hygiene. We have been fortunate to have Wendy as a member of The Wellington Dental Practice team since 2004 – her holistic, patient centred approach has helped build the foundation of what has become one of the best Dental Hygiene departments in Wellington.

A lover of the arts and the outdoors one can never be sure if Wendy will be found at a gallery opening, in the garden, or tramping one of our scenic walkways.

Kim Ongley

Dental Hygienist

Kim began her career in 1996 as a Dental Assistant working with our own Gavin Cho. It didn’t take her long to realize dentistry was for her and she was ready to take her career to the next level. Kim graduated from Otago University with a Diploma in Dental Hygiene in 2000 and has spent her time since then taking excellent care of her patient’s oral health needs.
Kim is an avid dancer and has received a certificate to teach Ballet from the Royal Academy of Dance. When she’s not with us you will find her teaching Ballet to the newest generation of aspiring dancers, or spending time with her daughter.

Mel Fox

Dental Hygienist

Mel graduated from Otago in 1998 and started her career on the Kapiti Coast, but spent the majority of her career working in Wellington CBD. She has also been involved in voluntary work providing dental hygiene services to New Zealanders in need.
Mel has such passion and dedication to her profession and patients. With her gentle, respectful approach, and her ability to tailor comprehensive treatment to the need of the individual makes her an indispensable member of the team.
In her spare time, Mel enjoys spending time with her family and friends, as well as running, cooking, reading, and exploring New Zealand.
