About The Rescue Dentist
Looking for an experienced dentist for routine dentistry or something more specialised without travelling to Auckland?
Have your crowns and dental implants done by Dr Dennis Shepherd, a local specialist dentist with 27 years' experience.
Dr Dennis Shepherd also has a post graduate training in treating periodontal/gum disease, and will go through all of your treatment options with you, and will assist you to make the best possible choice for your mouth and circumstances.
For those of you who want your mercury fillings replaced, we offer the option of same day ceramic crowns using an onsite state of the art CERAC computer milling machine.
This is a far superior option when replacing fillings. Provided you are healthy, have good bone quality and quantity I am able to offer dental implant placement and temporary crowns on the same day (single teeth). There is a golden window of opportunity after a tooth is extracted to place a dental implant. Once this has passed, the implant site may need additional preparation and healing. I can evaluate this for you with an on-site 3D x ray scanner and advise you of your treatment options
Currently this standard of care is only available from specialist dentists in Auckland and beyond.
