Oral healthcare and support for the Northland region


Kia ora, welcome to the Northland Dental branch.

We are a branch of the New Zealand Dental Association. The Northland branch is dedicated to advancing the dental profession and promoting the highest standard of oral health and oral healthcare.

Our members include private dentists, community/hospital dentists and dental specialists from the Northland region of New Zealand. We are passionate about providing excellent oral care to the Northland community.

Our AGM occurs in April of each year and a branch conference is held towards the end of the year. This consists of a great scientific programme and social events.

We hold monthly meetings on the second Tuesday evening of every month which gives attendees the opportunity for peer contact and guest speakers provide dental education.

Any dentists or dental students belonging to the New Zealand Dental Association welcome.

Please feel free to contact us at anytime.

If you are looking for information about oral healthcare Healthy Smiles provides some useful advice.
