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.
