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 team of Andrew, Marco and Sharon is a combination of talent unrivalled in New Zealand with experience both nationally and internationally, qualifications and expertise that is simply impressive.
Andrew Devine Oral Design Ltd (ADOD) established in 1998 is proud to introduce the new Niho (pronounced nee haw) line of dental restorations.
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 neighbours the Mission. We believe the time is right to launch a top-of-the-range “Jewelstone” line, the Niho line for the discerning client, the connoisseur.
Andrew is as passionate and driven today about dental technology as he was over thirty 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.
Marco Anastasopoulos – Master Craftsman
Marco is a perfectionist. He was trained and qualified in Germany over 17 years ago and like many of his fellow countrymen Marco is very disciplined about his work and pays great attention to detail. Marco without exception is the best combination telescopic technician in New Zealand, capable of performing work that nobody else can do in this country.
Marco too has attended numerous courses nationally and internationally in an effort to improve his product knowledge and to enhance his technical skills. He has also benefited from being tutored by world-renowned ceramists.
Sharon Devine – Co-founder and Practice Manager
Sharon loves her job and aims to achieve 100% client satisfaction. As the support person in the company she is vigilant about turnaround times and ensuring that the technicians have the time and materials they need to manufacture the luxury restorations and prostheses that are Niho.
