Our goal is to provide high quality dental care, that feels good, looks good, and lasts, all in a calm and relaxed environment. We're small so can offer really personalised care focussed on you, and getting you to where you want to be.
There is plenty of parking, online booking (although we love talking to people on the phone too) and we're even open late on Thursdays. Our dental practice is in the Massey / Westgate area of West Auckland. You can expect gentle dental care, provided with integrity, good humour and warm smiles.
So if you're looking for a dentist that's warm and welcoming, as well as skilled and experienced, you're in the right place.
We cover all aspects of modern dental treatment for adults.
Andrea Lakeland - dentist
I love helping people smile. For me as a dentist, it’s not just about fixing teeth problems. It’s about giving people back their self-confidence, the desire to smile again and to make visiting me a pleasure, not a chore.
I take my time to get to know every one of my patients. I like to make sure I can offer you the best solutions to your oral health needs and that means getting to know you. I have very high ethical and moral standards and if I think another professional could help you better than I can, I’ll refer you without hesitation.
I graduated from Otago University with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 1998. Since then, I have been working in a wide variety of dental practices around Auckland and New Zealand. I understand how nerve-wracking it can be to have a dental check-up and that is one of the reasons why I have opened Massey Smiles. I want to change the way people view the dental profession by providing friendly, supportive and personalised treatment to every one of our patients. It’s about keeping your best interests at heart and always providing you with the absolute best treatment available. I’m never going to tell you off for not flossing, nor growl if you need a filling. Instead I’ll provide you with professional, durable and beautiful dental work you’ll be proud of because that’s what a great dentist does.
In my time off, I enjoy spending time with my primary school aged children. I also enjoy being creative and dabbling in furniture and jewellery making, as well as fibre and textile based arts.
Lisa - dental assistant
I really enjoy meeting new people and getting to know them. Seeing people change from when they first come is really rewarding.
I started assisting straight from school when I was 16 so that’s 30 years now!
In my spare time I like gardening at home in West Harbour, and spending time with my teenagers before it’s not cool any more!
Carly - receptionist
I am a true born and bred Westie! I live locally in Massey, attended Massey High School myself (not too many years ago!!) and currently have 2 children attending Massey Primary.
I absolutely love my job! I inherited a passion for dentistry when I was exposed to the industry almost 7 years ago after being offered to cover a friend who was going on maternity leave from her dental reception role. I jumped in the deep end and haven't looked back.
My previous work history was within customer services and hospitality, I believe the experience I gained from working within this sector has helped shape me into the person I am today.
I was raised as an airforce military brat! - with strong morals, an incredible sense of organisation (also sometimes known as OCD), time management skills to boot (thanks Dad!), an amazing bonded family and the utmost respect for people in general.
