Providing You with Options

We know everyone is different - and that's why beyond always providing you with exceptional dentistry, we'll also always provide you with options! You'll have unique needs around speed, budget plus desired result, and we'll accomodate them. Using techniques such as porcelain veneers, crowns, bridges, implants, Invsialign Go, gum recontouring, composite fillings, and teeth bonding for gaps, we can change the shape, colour and position of your teeth, and replace missing teeth - whatever is best to meet your requirements. Gappy smile? Ceramic Veneers, teeth veneers and dental crowns might help. Crooked teeth or a chipped tooth? There's a range of options to suit.

For example, Invisalign Go is a wonderful new treatment to remedy crooked lower teeth for mouths that are becoming crowded with age (get your straight teeth back - easily!) You might have a desire to replace those old amalgam fillings for white ones? Or to change the look of your smile - and this is where easy gum contouring solutions can work wonderfully. Whatever your preference, we will provide you with a range of options and support you in your choice.

We have over 240 Google Reviews from delighted clients, and more on our Testimonials page. 

Please contact us to discuss your needs, or you can also talk to our Front Desk Team about our 15 min complimentary cosmetic consults with Dr. Matt.

Yes! On grabbing moments in the sunshine...


August 24th 2023


To all our wonderful patients,

As the curtain falls on a challenging winter, we extend our warmest wishes for your well-being, knowing it hasn't always been easy! The ever-changing weather has surely tested your resilience, and we hope you're navigating through these times with a sense of equilibrium and good spirits. Grabbing moments in the sunshine, time spent with loved ones, filling your cup with what makes you feel good, and of course, a cheerful smile, they're all your best defences against the winter blues!

Now, what about that football?...we hope you were able to experience some of the magic, inspiration, and simply "greatness" that the FIFA Women's World Cup has showcased in our backyard, no less. We enjoyed a collection of live matches and live streamed, with the buzz of Kingsland pre games providing additional fun. Thank you to all the teams and supporters for an incredible tournament - the memories, live experiences, and new role models were inspirational, and we at Accent were delighted to watch.

2. Now, let's talk appointments! Our incredible hygienists, Karen Hobbs and Yamuna, have been working their magic to keep those smiles shining. Karen's calendar is fully booked until February, while Yamuna's schedule is packed until December. Yes that's right! We've heard your requests for more flexible options, and we're on it. We're currently in the process of bringing a third hygienist on board to make sure you get the care you need when you need it, and to give you more convenience around when you can book, and will keep you posted.

But wait, there's more exciting news on the horizon in our dental care offerings...Karen Hobbs, our esteemed lead hygienist, is taking her skills up a notch. Drumroll, please! Karen is now venturing into the realm of adult scope dental work. She's undertaken additional training to provide check ups and fillings for adults under Dr. Matt's supervision, offering services for fillings at a reduced rate of $45 off the standard price. If this intrigues you, we've set aside a limited number of appointments for these treatments and check-ups with Karen. Feel free to inquire about this option. Additionally, while Karen and Yamuna's schedules are quite full, we have good news! Securing your preferred appointment time and day is most conveniently secured when you rebook during your most recent visit.

3. And now for the big reveal...!! We're thrilled to unveil the fresh new look of our practice. We've spruced things up with a vibrant coat of paint, and a shiny polish to match those dazzling smiles we've been crafting together. Our new street sign is a masterpiece in itself – it even glows at night, and mixed in with a nice spruce up, and some brand new gorgeous blinds on our big windows to let the sun in, we're feeling good. We're dedicated to enhancing your experience with us, and investing in looking good mixed with state-of-the-art equipment is just one way we're committed to achieving your best dental outcomes.

4. Dr. Matt's and Lucy's Exciting Journey

Guess what? Our incredible Practice Manager, Lucy Kirwan, has an adventure on the horizon! Lucy's gearing up for an exciting trip to Europe spanning September and early October. She'll be embarking on a whirlwind tour of seven countries – talk about a lucky globetrotter! Yes, we all wish we could be in her suitcase, but while she's off exploring, we've got everything under control. We'll have a wonderful temp taking over Lucy's role, ensuring that everything runs smoothly in her absence. And we are really excited for Lucy, who gets to go and see the world for seven weeks. 

Dr. Matt will be working through winter but taking a holiday in October for a week, visiting Japan for his first time. He and Kimberly will be exploring Tokyo and Kyoto, with a focus on savouring the local cuisine, embracing new experiences, and immersing themselves in the vibrant street culture. If you happen to have any insider tips or recommendations for their trip, please feel free to share them during your next visit. Your insights would surely add an extra layer of excitement to their adventure!

5. Final Thoughts

You Might Want First Dibs on Friday Appts with Our New Hygienist Sara...


August 23rd 2022

To all our wonderful patients,

By popular demand (we heard you!), we've hired a new Hygienist Sara who will be working on Fridays.

This means if you've been having trouble getting your teeth all sparkly and beautiful with a routine hygiene appointment within the next two months (we know Karen's been super booked out), we now have more availability for you! Sara comes to us highly recommended, and is also an expert in her field (teaching oral health at Auckland's AUT). Here's a little more about Sara...

"I Graduated from AUT in 2008 with a BHSc. of Oral Health. Since then worked in both public and private clinics as an assistant/receptionist, oral health therapist, practice manager and mentor. I always liked expanding my horizons so I gained certification in laser assisted periodontal therapy, breathing rehabilitation, life-coaching , NLP and hypnotherapy of medical patients. In 2021 graduated with a Masters of Business Management focusing on change management in healthcare facilities. I absolutely love my profession and enjoy what I do on a daily basis but if I wasn't an OHT I would be a baker!"

If you would like a more current appointment, contact Lucy, Sara is working every Friday 8am-3pm from September. Or book your online appointment here (remember to choose "Oral Hygiene" under your reason for visit, and Sara as your Oral Hygienist provider).

If you would like a booking, please phone us on 09 376 4374.

Online bookings are also open.

If you wish to discuss any cosmetic cases with Matt, this can also be done in person. 

All our staff are double vaccinated and have been since July 2021 (plus have had booster shots too).

We look forward to seeing you soon!

What Does Covid 19 Mean, and What Does Level 3 Look Like For Dentistry?


Jan 25th 2022

To our wonderful current and new patients,

We hope you are keeping well, and have had an awesome summer break! We also wanted to give you an update on what Traffic Light Red means for us over these next weeks. We can do check-ups, hygiene visits (incl. full polish), routine dental work, consults, cosmetic dentistry treatments and general dentistry.

Please note that ALL our staff are fully vaccinated and have been since July 2021 (and have had booster shots too!).
In addition, along with scupulous hygiene practices which are in keeping to our standard cross infection control practices, we also have installed high pressure extractor fans to provide you with the cleanest air possible. However, this means our surgery rooms are kept quite cold, so please bring an extra layer to help you keep warm during your appointment.

We take very seriously the spread of COVID-19 and are committed to doing our part to prevent it. Best practices for managing this virus (cross infection control) are in complete alignment with our standard protocol for how we manage and prevent all infection for all patients at all times. Please let us know if you are feeling unwell or experiencing any Covid-19 symptoms, awaiting test results or think you have been exposed.

Also, due to Covid-19 resitrctions during red light, please arrive as close to your appointment time as possible to minimize cross over in the reception area.  If you are going to be over 10 minutes late from your appointment time, we may not be able to see you. Please wear a mask in our reception area. We also ask that if you need to bring a support person with you, please limit it to 1 person per patient.

If you would like a booking, please phone us first on 09 376 4374. 

Online bookings are also open.

If you wish to discuss any cosmetic cases with Matt, this can also be done in person. 

All our staff are double vaccinated and have been since July 2021 (plus have had booster shots too).

Thanks for your understanding. We look forward to seeing you soon!
