Richard Beale, BDS (Otago), BSC

Principal Dentist

Originally from Invercargill, Richard has been a dentist since graduating from University of Otago in 1988. He worked in several North Island practices before moving to Christchurch in 1998. Richard is passionate about dentistry and loves using new technology to provide you with the best dental care possible. 

A proud Southlander, Richard loves to escape to Te Anau for fishing, boating and relaxing with his family. He supports Canterbury in all sports, except when they’re playing Southland! Three sons keep Richard busy when he’s not practising dentistry, and he can often be found providing parental support from the sidelines.

 

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
TO ALL OF OUR PATIENTS
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.
