Talked through everything in lamens terms from start to finish. Given cost prior to appointment. I get quite anxious about dental due to previous experiences and they were so kind. Great follow up phone calls and immediate assistance in terms of appointment when I had pain following extractions. Would highly recommend

THIS TEAM OF PROFESSIONALS LED BY AKASH IS UNIQUE. Triple A + experience having a crown installed.

Akash rocks, he was very friendly and made me relaxed before he pulled my wisdom tooth.
Made me at ease, thanks for the service and definitely would go back.

Went in for a regular check up and the dentist took great care while scaling, no pain at all. Also gave great advice on how to maintain oral hygiene 🙂

Haha! Never thought I would “like” a dental page on Facebook! Thank you team for your gentle care this week. Being “over anxious” i.e. terrified, is not a choice. Signing up for treatment is a difficult choice for me. Dr Akash Kota and his team with their reassuring kindness have worked their magic during an afternoon in their care. Thank you so much. I was comfortable during and after treatment.

Takeaway message… if you are scared, face the fear, explain to the professionals and trust that they will understand, advise and support you. Thanks team.

Our Story

In 2004, Dr Paddy Greville and Dr Robert Jones joined forces to form The Dental Clinic in Masterton, providing the community with a full range of Dental, Surgical and Orthodontic services. With the well earned retirement of Paddy in 2016, after having given over 35 years of service to the Wairarapa, Dr Akash Kota to joined as an Associate in January 2016.

We began a series of revamping and refurbishing the infrastructure, part of our transition was to rebrand ourselves as Masterton Dental. In April 2017 we have been joined by Dr. Michelle McSweeney, from the United Kingdom. Akash joined as a partner subsequently has taken over the clinic. In 2019 the technological upgrades included a Dental Cone Beam CT which allows 3D rendering of the jaws for placing dental implants with minimal trauma and wisdom teeth removal. Additionally we got a Primescan CEREC which can fabricate same day crowns and smile makeovers in one visit. As of 2020 we have grown our clinic family to include Dr Bashar Al Kadhi, Dr Simran Joshi and Dr Ishani Sukumaran and embrace the latest technology and treatment concepts. We are proud to have amazing staff and provide world class dental treatments right here in the Wairarapa!

We do:

  • General and Emergency Dentistry
  • One visit CEREC crowns and smile makeovers
  • Dental Implants
  • Orthodontics
  • Wisdom teeth removal
  • Sedation dentistry
