Team Niho is based in Napier, the Art Deco Capital of the world within the beautiful sunny Hawke's Bay region of New Zealand.
The Niho team combines talent unrivalled in New Zealand with experience, qualifications and expertise that is simply impressive.
Andrew Devine Oral Design Ltd (ADOD) established in 1998 proudly introduced the Niho (pronounced nee haw) line of dental restorations in 2010.
ADOD, a boutique dental laboratory, specialises in manufacturing dental restorations for cosmetic makeovers and oral rehabilitation including crowns, bridges, veneers, implants, telescopic prostheses and dentures.
ADOD produces work to a high standard, representing exceptional value, much like the “Reserve” wine offered by our old neighbours the Mission. The top-of-the-range “Jewelstone” line, the Niho line is for the discerning client, the connoisseur.
Andrew is as passionate and driven today about dental technology as he was over forty years ago when he started his career. His pursuit of excellence has led him to complete a Bachelor of Health Science Degree and a Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Dental Technology.
During his studies he developed a shade taking system entitled "Nature To Ceramics – Shade Communication". He travels nationally and internationally attending world-class courses such as those held at the Vita Centre Germany on Vita Ceramics and at the Vertex Centre Holland on Vertex Acrylics. He has also had the good fortune to be trained by some of the best ceramists in the world.
