This is a difficult and testing time for all of us and we understand there is a lot of uncertainty out there and we wish to assure you and our community that as we transition to Covid-19 alert level 4 our teams at the Dentists are here for you if you should need us.

As an essential service we will remain open and we have staff available for emergencies, however it is necessary and a government requirement that we suspend all non-essential dental services and this means all non- urgent scheduled appointments have had to been postponed.

We understand this is a stressful time and we are happy to consult with you and answer any of your questions over the phone. Don’t hesitate to call us. We care for you and if you have any concerns about your oral health and well being please give us a call. Our phone lines will be manned and answered by people who care.

As always, we are dedicated to keeping everyone, our patients and our staff, safe. We will continue to maintain our high standards of health and safety along with additional precautions that we have put in place in accordance with the guidelines outlined by the MOH.

Please take care and stay safe. Look after each other and help where you can.

COVID-19 UPDATE 24/03/2020: As an essential service provider the Dentists are open. Call first.

"Probably the second-best dentist experience of my life (the first being biting the dentist in the fifth form). Love the before and after photos and the explanations of the issues…"

Hi my name is William Cho.  I’m originally from South Korea and moved to New Zealand in 2001. I lived in Auckland through to high school and moved to Dunedin to study dentistry. I have worked in Rotorua before deciding to move to Napier for the current job.
I initially got into dentistry following my sister’s footsteps but really found passion in dentistry after seeing the positive changes I can make in people’s lives. This drives me to become a better dentist everyday and I spend a lot of my own time further educating myself.
