Morton John Morton
Dentist

Dr John Morton

John trained at Otago University, and has spent the past 27+ years practising in Christchurch, and has built up a loyal following of patients.

Before opening Morton Dentistry with wife Kristin, John’s last permanent pre-quake dental surgery was in the BNZ House, overlooking Cathedral Square as a member of the Christchurch Dental Group.


John gained experience in London, where he went after university to indulge his love of cricket, gave John both advanced skills and a strong interest in complex restorative procedures such as crowns and bridges, as well as everyday dental health.

“Dentistry is something that is so personal, and dental health so dependent on what happens in the rest of a person’s life, that you can’t be doing good work if you’re treating teeth in isolation.”

Dr Kristin Morton

Kristin trained at Otago University and has worked many a Christchurch dental clinic in her twenty years-plus as a dentist. Before the earthquakes she was in practice with John at the Christchurch Dental Group in Cathedral Square.

Loyalty, caring and mutual respect are some of the reasons Dr Kristin Morton loves working with long term patients.

Kristin is firmly on the side of preventive care, and planning for good oral health.

“We like to ask people ‘where do you want to go? Teeth can have such a big impact on overall health, as well as peoples’ confidence and ability to really feel good in the world. I love nothing more than to see somebody really shine as a result of great cosmetic dentistry.”
