Our Approach

We believe in ensuring your visit is a pleasant and memorable one. We will listen carefully to your main concern, then tailor a plan that fits your needs, expectations, time frame and budget with the best evidence based solution.

We believe that dental disease is completely preventable and restorative dentistry done properly can improve the quality of your oral health immeasurably. Thorough dental examinations and regular dental hygiene appointments that comprehensively check and maintain the health of your dentition are the bedrock of our practice. We perform oral cancer exams, complete screening for periodontal infections and take radiographs to ensure your teeth and bone is disease free.

We encourage regular dental examinations and hygiene treatments with the aim to providing preventative treatment to avoid those unwanted dental emergencies. During all appointments, we work closely with you to identify and reach your oral health goals.

We maintain the highest standards of infection control and safety procedures, according to the NZ Dental Council codes of practice designed to protect you against the possible transmission of disease and infections.
