The Dental Hospital and clinics are proud of the service we provide to our communities, and we appreciate the support we receive.

At the Dental Hospital and clinics, you will receive a high standard of care, provided by students working under supervision, or our clinical staff. In either case, you will benefit from the latest evidence-based practice techniques.

The Dental Hospital and clinics are in a state-of-the-art Clinical Services Building (CSB) which is accessible through the Walsh Building at 310 Great King Street.

Dental care at the Dental Hospital and clinics is offered at reduced rates to our patients, as you are being treated by trainee dentists, oral health therapists, technicians and those dentists training to be specialists. We appreciate you being part of our students' learning experience.

In some instances, your treatment may be provided by one of our specialist clinicians and will be charged at a higher rate.

Your dental care may also come under specially funded services which are subsidised. There may be a part-charge for this.

How to enrol

Phone or email us to register your interest in enrolling as a patient.

Tel +64 3 479 8889

Often our students require training on certain care - if this is the case, you may get an appointment sooner

Unfortunately, we are not able to accept all referrals and there can be delays in being seen.

If we would like to assess you for treatment, you will be sent a patient enrolment form and questionnaire (by email or post) with instructions for completing and returning.

We operate a waitlist system for those that we accept onto the waiting list. You will be given a priority for being seen and we will aim to see you in either 3 months, or 6 months or 12 months.

It is important that you take steps to manage your oral health while waiting to be seen by us.  Please inform us if you seek treatment elsewhere.

You may be eligible for WINZ support. Please advise us if this is the case.
