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


Sept 22nd 2021

To our wonderful patients,

We hope you are keeping well, and we also wanted to give you an update on what Level 3 means for us over these next 14 days. This time it's a bit different for us. We can do check-ups, hygiene visits, routine dental work, consults, and general dentistry. However, our online bookings may not be available until October 6th, as prior to then we need to triage patients first via a phone call. Please note that ALL our staff are fully vaccinated. 

If you would like a booking from Monday 27th, please phone us first on 09 376 4374. Online bookings will open up the week after, starting October 6th.

This is in response to the Ministry of Health and the NZ Dental Council guidelines, which require additional Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and process protocol.

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

Please wear a mask if you are able to.



-  All treatment will begin with a telephone consultation.

-  Please call our reception on 09 3764374, Monday-Friday between 8.00 and 5.00pm

-  If there is no reply, leave your name and contact number so we can call you back

-  We will assess your problem, your health status, and discuss treatment options. 

Please also note that Bookings online for after Oct 5th 2021 can also be made here.

Take care team, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
