Dr. James Philpott

Hello and thank you for taking the time to look around our website.

I was born in Palmerston North where I lived until I moved to Dunedin. After completing my Bachelor of Dental Surgery and graduating with distinction, I have worked in both hospital and general practice dental settings in the deep south.

I am very passionate about teeth, smiles, dentistry, but most importantly my patients. I enjoy treating my patients with the greatest of care and discussing with them all the available options, so that together we can make the best decisions for your oral health. All of my patients know that they can ask as many questions as they like so they can have a full understanding about their smiles.

I love all areas of dentistry, but to pick a few favourites would include children's dentistry, endodontics (root canal treatment), and complex crown and bridge dentistry.  I also believe that pain-free dentistry is very important.

When I am not at work I enjoy my sports, which include cycling, running, tennis and some visits to the gym. I also enjoy spending time in the kitchen attempting to be the next top chef and keeping my friends and family well fed.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions contact me anytime, [email protected] or on my mobile 027 344 4070.

I look forward to caring for you and your smiles in the future,
