Our Philosophy

At Woodward Dental Practice we believe in excellence of treatment. Excellent dental care starts with good communication. We take your questions and concerns seriously and we want to know what’s important to you so that we can tailor our treatment accordingly. Our aim is twofold, to deliver excellent, lasting treatment in a personal, trusting environment. There should be smiles all round.

Our History

Our surgery has been in the same rooms for more than 75 years. Woodward Dental Practice was originally established in 1931 by AP Middleton, who was joined by his son JD (Dennis) Middleton in 1961. Dennis and ‘AP’ ran the surgery until AP retired in 1986 and David took over AP’s role. Charlotte joined the practice in 1995 on Dennis’ retirement.

David Corcoran and Charlotte Cocks have continued to operate and expand the practice since then. Jaideep Vijayasenan joined the practice in 2006.

Our People

Our reception and front office staff are trained to greet and help you, the patient, with any and all questions – from appointments to financial arrangements. Our dental surgery assistants are also fully trained to help patients in the surgery with any problems. Our two hygienists are registered with the New Zealand Dental Council, to clean teeth, give oral hygiene advice and follow up problem periodontal cases. And all of us at Woodward Dental Practice like to work with a smile – an important detail in a busy dental practice!
