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.


                                                                                       Are you a nervous patient? 


It’s quite understandable and common to feel anxious about visiting the dentist, especially if you need complex treatment or surgery including wisdom teeth removal and dental implants.  Sedation could be a good option for you, helping you feel more relaxed during your dental treatment. 

At NDC we have your dental health and well-being at the heart of everything we do and there are many ways your dentist can make you feel comfortable during your treatment. Our team at Nelson dental offer IV sedation helping you feel fully relaxed and calm.


Prior to any sedation with Amy Langfield, you will be seen for a general consultation.  This allows us to talk through with you what treatment you would like to have undertaken when you are sedated.  This consultation will only be a chat, x-rays and examination. This also gives you the chance to meet the team and visit the practice.


During the sedation you will have a team of three making sure you are comfortable and relaxed.

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.
