Welcome to Our Practice

Welcome to Beale & Cullen Dental, the Christchurch boutique dental practice of  Richard Beale and  Louisa Cullen. We are pleased you found us and honoured that you are considering us for your dental care.

It’s natural to feel a bit nervous about a trip to the clinic. We aim to turn that nervousness into an experience you actually look forward to. You see, we care for our patients as people, not just teeth, and look after your emotional health along with your smile. We strive to provide an exceptional experience at every visit.

Clinical Excellence with a Gentle Touch

Both Richard and Louisa are perfectionists when it comes to the clinical side of dentistry. They don’t just place fillings and crowns; they create tiny works of art that change lives. Whether it is relieving pain or creating a full smile makeover, each aspect of the dentistry they provide is designed to meet our patients’ goals and last a long time.

We believe that dentistry can be a painless experience, so if you have been avoiding your dental visits, we look forward to showing you how it’s done – gently and comfortably. You might even find yourself having a bit of fun while you’re with us.

A Unique Environment Designed for You

In addition to exceeding the standards of cleanliness and sterilisation requirements, we thought it might be nice to design a dental clinic that is both functional and beautiful. Louisa is a big fan of design, and you will see her artistic touches throughout our practice.

We also understand that life is busy and taking a few moments for yourself can be a rare treat. Our little touches, like a great music selection in each patient room, lip balm and lemons from our much-admired tree, make the time you spend here special. We encourage you to relax and unwind while we look after your smile.

Technology Enhancements

In addition to their dedication to continuing education and training, both Richard and Louisa value technology that improves our patients’ experiences here. From one-day CEREC crowns to digital radiographs, our interest in technology is an investment in you.

Your Smile – Your Choice

We always present every possible treatment option and respect the choice that our patients make for their own smiles. We see our role as educators and partners in your oral health and focus on getting you the care you want. You will never feel told off no matter the conditions you currently face.
