All new patients and patients that don’t attend on a 6 monthly basis will be booked for a consultation appointment.
During you initial consultation our helpful and friendly Dentists will discuss your options to enable you to decide on the best treatment to suit your needs.
You will be given a detailed treatment plan and cost estimate for you to consider before any treatment is done.
Dental Care Centre offers a full range of dental options:
CHECK UP & CLEAN (active maintenance)
Regular 6 monthly check-ups are encouraged with the hygienist or Dentist to allow regular removal of bacterial build up (plaque and tartar) and to regularly review the condition of your teeth. This coupled with good home care ensures your teeth remain in good condition and often minimises the need for difficult and costly repairs.
Visit www.healthysmiles.org.nz/your-oral-health/adults for more information about the benefits of dental check-ups.
Dental Care Centre is pleased to be able to provide free dental care to children aged 13 to 18. This dental treatment includes an annual check and any necessary work.

ACC will help with costs if you have an accident and damage your teeth. You will need to register your accident with ACC which can be done when you visit for your consultation. The Dentist will be able to advise any necessary treatment and then apply on your behalf for approval for the treatment. In some cases a surcharge may be required. This will be discussed with you during the first appointment which is covered by ACC.
