An investment in superior quality has been made to ensure our work is of the highest standard. This ensures you the peace of mind that oral care treatments that you have invested in is of the highest quality. Good dentistry requires attention to detail, use of high quality materials, laboratory services, use of advanced dental technology, time to develop a customized plan and to properly execute that plan.

During your first visit with us, the dentist will discuss your treatment options with you and will also give you a comprehensive treatment plan to take home with you, which will give you details about your next few appointments and associated costs. The treatment plan will ensure that all your concerns will be addressed first. Advantages of having a comprehensive dental plan done are many. All problems and potential problems are identified. Your wants and goals for your mouth and smile are taken into account. Treatment plans paid in advance always progress to completion more rapidly. You will not let other things get in the way if you have made the commitment to care for your oral health.

The payment options are reviewed prior to treatment and agreed upon by the office and patient before any treatment is started. This is the most comfortable way for both parties since all the details are worked out in advance and do not interfere with treatment.

We request at least 24 hours’ notice for cancellation of appointments and we ask that you respect our time as much as we respect yours.

This will apply to patients who are receiving treatment supported by Work and Income New Zealand and ACC as well.
