Mission Statement

Our goal is to provide personal, professional dental treatment to patients who have lost their natural teeth. We strive to provide the highest level of service and care, along with uncompromising craftsmanship in the design and fabrication of your dentures.

We’ve been in the same location for 39 years, and as a result Doug is affectionately known as “the guy by the Royal Bank”. We’re an established practice and well known in the community. A locally owned and family operated practice, we’re proud to have been helping residents of the North Island achieve beautiful and healthy smiles with our denture solutions for well, decades.
