Louisa Cullen, BDS (Otago)

Principal Dentist

Hailing from Ashburton, Louisa graduated from University of Otago in 1991. She spent a year as a Dental House Surgeon at Wellington Hospital before a move to Auckland, where she gained experience in a variety of dental practices before returning to Christchurch in 1998.

Louisa gains immense satisfaction from providing exceptional dental care in a relaxing environment supported by a great team.

"I enjoy the challenge of delivering exceptional care every time to every patient and helping those who are nervous overcome past fears and phobias so they actually look forward to coming to the dentist. I love being a part of a great team that works together to the common goal of delivery of exceptional care at every visit."

Continuing education is a passion, and Louisa runs a dental study group for colleagues. Thankfully, the demands of three busy sons keep Louisa out of the shoe shops while she’s not at work!


Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
COVID-19 Update 12 May 2020
We are excited that we can see patients from Thursday as we move to Level 2. Please call 03 3545450 to schedule an appointment.
We want to make you aware of some changes to expect as we work to keep you safe.We will ask you a series of screening questions on making the appointment and again when you arrive for your appointment.  We'll ask you to use hand sanitizer as you arrive and leave our office.We won't be using the Front Room to seat patients awaiting treatment instead we ask you to call us on your arrival from your car and we'll bring you directly into the Treatment Room when we're ready for you. Appointments are being managed to allow for additional infection control procedures and social distancing between patients so you may be offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment. We know you will understand as the world has changed we have made some changes along with it to keep our patients and our team safe.
