Your Dental Experience
We Care About YOU – Not Just Your Teeth
Our friendly, welcoming team is here to make your experience as positive as possible. We have some of the best dental experts in New Zealand. With many, many years of experience and continual training, we are proud of our team of highly qualified, professional dentists, hygienists and denture designers who make sure that everyone, regardless of their age or dental needs, receives the ultimate dental experience.
The ultimate dental experience isn’t just about having the best people to take care of your teeth, it’s about having the best people take care of your entire journey with us. We know what it’s like to sit in the dentist chair, and our mission it to make it as easy and stress-free as possible.
Located in the heart of Henderson, our clinic is equipped with the latest dental technology so we can offer the state-of-the-art treatments and quality care you deserve. But it’s not all about technology – our spaces are designed to encourage our patients to feel relaxed, comfortable and ‘at home’ when visiting us, whether they are in for major reconstructive dental work or a routine check-up.
Your Consultation Experience
When you arrive at McIntosh Dental you’ll be greeted by one of our friendly Patient Care Coordinators, who will check you in and ask you to fill in a brief new patient form. Next you’ll be taken through to one of our treatment rooms, where an experienced Dental Assistant will have a chat with you about your dental and medical history and any concerns you have about your teeth.
We’re a non-judgmental practice (there’s not much we haven’t seen or heard!) with compassionate, well-trained staff who really listen to you. We want you to feel comfortable in answering questions honestly and openly.
Your notes will be handed on to your Dentist, who’ll then have a gentle look through your mouth, and take x-rays and photos where required. Your Dentist will explain all of your options clearly, and work with you to create a personalised treatment plan. Finally, your Patient Care Coordinator will guide you through the booking process and our various finance options.
Your Treatment Experience: Dental Anxiety
We understand that dental anxiety and dental phobia can be a real challenge for some people. It’s important to us that visiting the dentist is a stress-free experience for everyone. Whether you suffer from tooth sensitivity, have a fear of needles or drills, or have experienced a traumatic dental experience in the past, we can help you to overcome these fears and stay calm and comfortable throughout your dental treatment. Talk to us about your concerns and we will find an option for managing your dental anxiety that is right for you.
Your Dental Providers For Life
We take pride in offering a full range of comprehensive dental treatments for everyone, regardless of their age or specific needs. From our Free Dentistry For Teens to Orthodontics, from Teeth Whitening to Dentures, from hygiene and oral care to Dental Implants, we are a full-service dental clinic.
Your Post-Treatment Care Experience
Our care for you doesn’t end with your procedure. It’s important to us that our patients are comfortable and happy post-treatment, so if you have having a more involved procedure we’ll give you a call the next day to check in and see how you’re going. We’ll also set up a post-treatment appointment to make sure everything is working as it should and that you’re happy with the results.
We take an active maintenance approach to care, which means we’ll schedule ongoing check-ups with you at either six or 12 month intervals, depending on your stage of life, lifestyle, and condition of your teeth. This maintenance means we can catch any small issues before they become big ones – saving you money in the long run.
