"I now feel I have brand new teeth and am absolutely thrilled." ~ Suzannah H.

Welcome

Your teeth, your dentist, your choice

As a new patient at Accent, we like to take the time to get to know you.

Your first visit will always be a one-hour appointment to discuss your dental history, your worries and your plans.

Fully understanding your situation means we truly tailor your dental care. You get all the options, all the information and our expertise to help you make the right choice for the smile you want. Plus we offer payment plans.

Even if it's a full mouth rehabilitation you need.

We're all double vaxed, and have been since July 2021. We also operate high pressure extractor fans to provide you with the cleanest air possible. 

For your convenience, we offer a full range of Dental payment plan options on certain treatments, to help our customers meet their needs to spread dental payments over three to 12 months. If this would be helpful for you (as for many of our patients), please let us know. 

Plus we offer complimentary 15 min consults for cosmetic dentistry treatments - if you're considering any of this for your teeth (closing gaps, straightening up teeth, new dental veneers, implants, cerec crowns, or even full mouth reconstructions (we do these too), please ask us about booking your 15min complementary consult with Dr. Matt, a NZ dentist, and Founding Member of the NZACD. Our focus is natural looking beautiful teeth that make you want to smile.

These consults are appropriate if you want to talk through the options available to you, or just want a second opinion.

Carbon Footprint:

At Accent Dentists we care about the environment, we are trying our best to choose options that are better for the environment and we continue to review these so that we can always be doing the best to decrease our waste, reduce our carbon foot print and be a more eco-friendly practice.

Here are some of the things that we do so far…

  • Digital radiographs
  • Biodegradable paper cups

  • Composting our food waste from staff lunches
  • Fully computerized system/ paper-less options
  • Local dental laboratories, rather than increasing our carbon foot print by sending to an overseas lab.
  • Natural face masks with more than 60% cellulose materials
  • Our disposable suction tips and micro brushes are oxo-degradable
  • Recycling of soft plastics, plastics, paper and cardboard
  • Tissues ,toilet paper and paper towels made from recycled material
