Tena koutou,

Ngāti Hine Health Trust advises our clients, whānau and the community that the Dental Oral Health Services based in Kaikohe are temporarily closed. This follows on from our sole dentist moving away and the Trust actively exploring opportunities that allow us to re-open and offer a quality service that is best tailored to the needs of the whānau whom we serve. To our valued customers who have appointments booked for completion of dental work started. We offer you the following options:

  1. A refund of your consultation fee.
  2. Assistance in referral to another dentist.

Ph 0800 644 864

Over the weeks our remaining team will be working through logistics and making contact with active clients.

Ngāti Hine Health Trust acknowledge the importance of dental care for our whānau and apologise for the inconvenience this has caused for our whānau during this time.
