Hi There!


 


I am on the hunt for a new Dentist. Mine is pretty expensive (2K for a crown and charges for an assessment THEN fillings seperately requiring two visits). 


I am looking for someone good and hopefully not eye wateringly expensive, and who is central.


Anyone got a recommendation?

Anyone central is going to be expensive. The further out you go, the cheaper they get. 

 

Warrington Dental in Christchurch is probably one of the cheapest in NZ. The money you save will more than pay for the airfare.

Yeah I don't want to fly for a dentist to be honest (I don't like flying despite having done it 300+ times).

We've had really good experiences with Alpers.

We've used Green Bay dental for a number of years. Relatively reasonably priced, friendly and have done a good job for my wife and I.

Dentists in NZ are crazy expensive, it's cheaper to fly to South Africa / Fiji have the work done and come back.

 

 

 

One I was recommended was Loudon Dental Group Ltd - 09 267 8033 - 4 Halver Rd Manurewa Auckland

To be short.. Royal Road Detail (Pat) or Green Bay Dental (Rashid)

 

Rashid pulled some of my teeth in the public system (at Greenlane Medical Centre where he works as well ) and Pat did in the private system fillings.

 

Royal Road Dental was under 1/2 the price than a much closer Dentist.

 

No pain at all with 7 teeth out, 6 fillings and Stitches during or after the work done. (They where not done all at the same time).  

 

 

 

And I was awake the entire time, just _lots_ of painless injections so you don't feel the tooth work.
