I've had a bad experience and am very nervous about seeing the dentist. Can you help me?

We know most people are a little anxious before going to the dentist, but for some people, this fear can be so debilitating that it causes them to leave a very long time between visits. Please be honest and tell us about your fears. We want to know if you have had a previous bad experience, and often just talking about it and realising that we understand and are here to help you can be a very powerful first step in moving past it and helping you on the road to great dental health. 

One of our most significant rewards is when patients who came to us initially with a genuine fear of the dentist tell us they now look forward to their dental visits! 

It’s easy to say we are kind and compassionate, but you will only know we truly believe in respecting and delighting our patients when you make your first dental appointment with us. You will never be just a smile to us. Instead, we will treat you with a whole-person approach, caring for your emotional experience and your dental experience equally.

Our goal is for every experience you have with us to be exceptional! Contact our Christchurch dental practice and take the first step toward a smile you feel proud to show off.

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.
