About Us

We are committed to providing that care in an environment of outstanding customer service.

Humans have only two sets of teeth in their entire lifetime—baby teeth and permanent teeth. Once you have your permanent teeth, make sure you take good care of them.

Corson Dental is located in Central Tauranga. Our practice offers general and cosmetic dental treatment options, with our ultimate goal being to deliver dental excellence through uncompromising patient care.

Using the latest technological advances, we are able to help you achieve a beautiful healthy smile, with options ranging from simple preventive measures to our more specialised smile make-over cosmetic treatments. A dental experience in our modern high tech office will open your eyes to the wonderful possibilities today’s dentistry offers.
