Dentistry is a very personal thing. The relationship is based on trust and understanding. We understand this and we will go out of our way to make you feel special .
Our practice is committed to providing you and your family with safe, gentle, high-quality dental care. We understand that you, or your child, may feel anxious about visiting the dentist. We are sensitive to your needs, and it is our goal to make you feel comfortable visiting our practice while providing the best care possible.
Your first visit is all about you – your comfort, your happiness, and your health.
During your first visit, we will:
- Review your completed dental and medical history forms
- Take X-rays of your teeth and mouth (depending on the treatment)
- Clean and polish your teeth, checking your teeth and gums for any cavities or early signs of tooth decay or gingivitis (depending on the treatment)
After your checkup and teeth cleaning are complete, one of our doctors or hygienists will meet with you to discuss your X-rays, help you create your own individual treatment plan, and answer any questions that you may have.
Bring your smile, but also remember to bring these with you to your first appointment:
- Any previous dental records and x-rays
- Copies of any health insurance/ACC/WINZ documentation

Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!
The New Zealand Dental Council recommends visiting your dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
We understand that you have a busy schedule, so when you’re preparing to visit the dentist, please remember that your appointments can last between 30 and 90 minutes.
