Nelson Dental Centre has been making smiles wider and brighter in Nelson, New Zealand since 1975.

Our purpose built surgery, located on the beautiful Maitai River is equipped to provide you with the highest standard of care. We care about you and your family, and we care about our environment with a strong commitment to sustainability.

Here, our professionals know that dental health is not just about white smiles: it’s about having strong teeth and healthy gums. It’s about prolonging the simple joy of eating delicious things! Our mission is to help our patients accomplish these goals in a painless, compassionate, and efficient way.

We aim to educate our patients in a safe environment while offering them comprehensive care. We understand that many people have anxiety about dental treatment, so we created a soothing environment and a scheduling system that never keeps you waiting long. By combining the latest technology with traditional techniques, we give our patients the best care in the region.

Our Terms and Conditions will reassure you of this.

​Our aim is to develop a treatment plan in partnership with you that combines your required outcomes together with our knowledge and experience.  We want to give you the smile you deserve!



Routine Exams


Dentistry is founded on the principle of prevention. All patients are recommended biannual cleanings and annual examinations. This will help to avoid dental problems and promote good oral hygiene. 

Dental Fillings


Used to prevent the spread of tooth decay or correct damage, fillings are intended to preserve your oral health. We can fill with composite resin, the colour of which can be customised to match your natural teeth.



A dental crown is a restoration designed to fully encapsulate your tooth, restoring its strength, shape, and appearance.  A crown can protect a cracked tooth, restore a weakened tooth, and improve shape and colour.



If you are looking to enhance the appearance of one or more teeth then veneers are a viable option. They are very thin porcelain or resin shells that are customised in colour to match your natural teeth. 



Dental implants provide a permanent solution that will let you smile, laugh, and enjoy your favourite foods with confidence.

Teeth Whitening


This is a highly effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface.

You do what has to be done kindly and painlessly.

Mum has refused to go to the dentist for seven years, but then her tooth broke. We were so apprehensive but you put us both at ease, and your patience and skill was extraordinary.

You know exactly how to disarm the dread and fear that accompanies me to all dental appointments.
