First m ori dentist albert kewene calls it a day

Albert Manahi Kewene (born 1939/1940) is a retired New Zealand Māori dentist.

In 1965 he was the first Māori to become a registered dentist, and he was the first Māori to graduate in periodontics from Otago Medical School in 1974. Of Tainui descent, his uncle was Manahi Nitama Paewai. In the later part of his career he worked for Māori healthcare providers and served on Te Ao Marama, the New Zealand Māori Dental Association. Kewene retired in 2014.

Kewene was preceded in dentistry by Walter Morete, who was the first Māori to graduate with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 1928, before registration.
