About Us

At Parnell Dentistry we endeavour to make your visit to us as comfortable and pain free as possible. We are genuinely concerned about our patients holistic well-being and how that can affect their oral health. We believe in being comprehensive in our diagnosing and treatment planning and proactive with adopting a preventative philosophy,  therefore when treatment is required we like to discuss the options with you, taking the long term approach. We specialise in caring for patients with extreme anxiety, fear and uneasiness when it comes to a visit to the dentist, give us an opportunity to demonstrate our skill and provide you with a more positive experience and better memories at the dentist.

Based in Parnell for over 20 years, we have plenty of experience in assisting people to achieve and maintain great smiles and long term oral health for many years.

We warmly welcome clients from birth (refer to our Kid’s Club) up to 100 plus, because we strongly believe you are never too young to start good oral health habits. For that matter it is never too late either and with dentistry in particular, prevention is so much more achievable than the cure!

With our central location close to motorways and on the Link bus route, late night hours and free parking, Parnell Dentistry have taken the trouble to understand our patient schedules and therefore making it easy to access us.

We are a member of the New Zealand Dental Association and the Auckland Dental Association and the New Zealand Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. All our Dentists operate on high standards and are constantly updating their knowledge and skill to provide you with the best care.
