Beale and Cullen Dental Surgery
Located on Papanui Road in Christchurch, Beale and Cullen is a boutique dental surgery who provide exceptional care from unique surroundings. We understand that you want personalised, affordable and high quality dental care and from the moment you walk in we want you to feel welcome. Before your appointment you can relax in our comfortable patient lounge, flicking through our great selection of magazines or catching up on the newspaper.
Our first practice was opened in 1998 on Armagh Street. After it's demise in the Christchurch earthquake we opened our new practice on Papanui road in December 2012.
We always take the time to get to know our patients and develop a plan together for how to keep healthy teeth for life. As we are very thorough, your first appointment may take a little longer than you're used to so be prepared.
