Dr Mo Amso

NZDA24 Mo Amso

Dr Mo Amso has been a general dentist for almost 15 years, working in both the private and public sectors.

He worked for both Iwi and Pasifika clinics for several years and held the role of Dental Clinical Director for 5 years overseeing a group of three clinics across Auckland.

Mo is currently the Chief Executive of the New Zealand Dental Association and maintains clinical practice treating special care patients at Te Whatu Ora Te Toka Tumai Auckland.

In 2019, he was named NZDA’s Outstanding Young Dentist of the Year.

As a migrant to Aotearoa New Zealand, Mo experienced hardship in affording dental care and his career has primarily been in community clinics treating vulnerable and low-income Kiwis. His vision for oral health is for it to be recognised as a critical part of general health and be appropriately funded.

He lives in Auckland with his wife Sarah, sons David and Michael.
