Anita Studetzky was forced to shift from her home in Brooklands last year because of earthquake damage, where she had been
operating the business from since 1989.
Her loyal clientele, many of whom were inquiring when she would be reopening, will once again be able to enjoy the friendly and
professional services provided by Anita, who has over 40 years of experience in the industry.
Originally from Germany, she immigrated to New Zealand in 1983 and worked as a registered clinical dental technician before
opening her own business.
Her personal philosophy is to treat people as she would like to be treated -- with honesty, respect and understanding, she says.
"I take the time to talk with my patients about their expectations and explain how I will try to achieve them.
"I am very aware that a denture's appearance can play a very significant role in helping to enhance each patient's overall
self-confidence when dealing with both family and public situations."
The new laboratory is situated in a pleasant rural setting with easy car parking and access.
Anita strongly believes that her patients should be provided with not only the most comfortable and functional dentures she can
produce, but that they must also naturally enhance each patient's individuality.
• Brooklands Dental Laboratory is now located at 300 Birch Hill Rd about 6km west of the Loburn School on the Scenic Route
to Oxford, phone (03) 329 8555
New location: Anita Studetzky, of Brooklands Dental Lab, has the professional expertise and passion to provide every denture
patient with a smile that positively reflects their personality.
Brooklands Dental Lab has re-opened for business in its
new home-based location, west of Rangiora.

We live in a complaining culture, and it's easy to
catch the habit. We start taking things for granted,
like fresh water from a tap, fresh air to breath,
sunshine, and the love and friendship of others.
We would all be better off if we made a habit of
being thankful. The German mystic Meister
Eckhart once suggested that if the only
prayer we ever said was "thank you" it
would be enough.
Resurrect the old habit of saying
"thank you" before eating food,
or make a practice of taking a
minute to reflect on what you can
give thanks for in your day.

Roses dipped in weedkiller
By ABBIE NAPIER
AS YOU reach into your back poc-
ket to pay for that big bunch of
Valentines Day roses this year,
take a moment to consider the fact
they may be clinically dead.
What kind of message does that

Every year more than 6 million
cut-flower stems are imported into
New Zealand, of which 2.1 million
are roses. They come mostly from
India where temperatures in some
regions never fall below 18
degrees, meaning the cost of
heated glasshouses does not often
factor in the price.
Meanwhile, Kiwi growers are
dealing with bitterly cold winters
and enormous heating bills.

dirt-cheap roses have been treated

ECan said it was the purchaser's
responsibility to check rules and
regulations around outdoor fires
before buying braziers and the

However, it was encouraging
retailers to carry more infor-

could be used.

those living outside the clean air
zone. All outdoor fires require a
permit from the city council.
