Our History in brief
Titirangi Dental Centre was established in 1948 in a house at the corner of South Titirangi and Titirangi Roads by dentist Dr. Guy Chapman. That means that we’ve been around for over 65 years!!
More about Dr. Chapman:
In 1920s Auckland, dentist Guy Chapman noticed dental caries were rife among his patients, and he suspected the cause was poor nutrition.
He took a holistic view when looking for a solution, promoting whole foods, vitamins and fresh food produced in healthy soil, and continued his education work in this area for years.
And 70 years ago in Auckland, he co-founded the Humic Compost Club (later Society). It started in May 1941 with a demonstration of how to build a compost heap. Such demonstrations would attract 200-300 people and were occasionally held indoors, complete with manure.
In 1942, the first issue of Compost Club Magazine was printed. In later years, the magazine changed its name to Compost Journal, then Soil and Health. It later took the name it has today: Organics NZ.
By 1943, Dr Chapman was actively promoting composting and lecturing on nutrition among Maori. (He was later made an honorary Maori chief in appreciation of his work with Maori.)
