Eileen on reception brings over 30 years of experience to the job and will always strive to find an appointment that will suit you and your budget. Capable to the extreme, you can put many of your dental queries to Eileen, and she will most likely know the answer!

Working with her are Jodie and Zoey, our essential nurses and sterilisers. They keep the patients flowing with their efficient change over times and everything is spot-on and ready for you. They understand the importance of the latest sterilisation techniques, and use a Lisa class B steriliser, capable of heating to 135°C. Our instruments are hygienically bagged, labelled and then stored after sterilisation, waiting just for you in Whangarei.
