About FillingGaps

Have a question about dentistry?
We can help.

FillingGaps is a growing group of New Zealand Dentists and Dental Specialists who share a common goal of wanting to provide New Zealanders with a reliable source of information about oral health and dentistry.

Since Dentists all over New Zealand are delivering similar advice to their patients every day, it makes sense to have one place where you can access the information you need to answer your questions about oral health and dentistry.

FillingGaps provides you with a resource where you can obtain current information on evidence-based best practice Dentistry. We can also help by answering questions about your own specific dental concerns or questions which you may feel too embarrassed or uncomfortable to ask your own Dentist.

When it comes to dentistry, there is no “one size fits all” approach. Three Dentists may give the same patient three different treatment plans and they may all be correct! FillingGaps wants to help you choose the right Dentist for your situation and provide you with the information you need to choose the right treatment option for you.

FillingGaps provides answers to a wide range of questions Dentists frequently get asked. However, if what you are looking for is not on our website then you can submit your own question and we will answer it as soon as we can.

FillingGaps gives you the opportunity to find out all the facts and all of your options so that you can work with your Dentist on the best solution, taking into consideration your Dentist’s expert advice, your wants, and also your financial position.

By doing this, FillingGaps hopes that not only will your next visit to a Dentist be a more positive experience, but that this will translate into a better relationship with your Dentist and ultimately better oral health.
