To all our Patients and the Community:
Due to COVID-19
The Dental Council, The Ministry of Health and
New Zealand Dental Association encouraged all practices to postpone any non-urgent care and elective care until further notice.
Dentists, hygienists and other oral health care workers are at higher risk for transmitting and contracting the infection, not only are they in close proximity to their patients, but they also handle drills that use water to cool as well as aerosol rinsing devices that can propel germs and droplets from inside the mouth into the air.
 
Therefore, for public safety we at Peninsula Dental Centre have decided to close completely for four weeks from Wednesday 25 March until 28 April unless the direction has changed.
 
However, Dr Mike Rabih will be available by phone (027 510 7066) to provide any needed advice during this difficult time.
 
Please Stay safe.
The Peninsula Dental Team

Dr Mwaffak Rabih, DDS

Dentist

On behalf of all my staff, I welcome you to our dental practice! We are pleased you have selected us to care for your dental needs. We want you to know that we are committed to providing you with the highest quality of oral health care, in the most gentle, efficient, and enthusiastic manner possible. 

In our office, we give each patient personal attention. We believe that a close relationship allows you to experience pleasant dentistry. We are aware that some patients may sometimes have uneasiness about dental care. We will make every effort to help relieve any apprehension you may have. 

 

In order for us to serve you, we must have communication. We need to know your feelings. It may be necessary for us to spend some time educating you about dental disease, treatment options, and prevention. We want our patients to assume an active role in their dental health. The patient who has knowledge about the nature of dental disease, and understands how it can be prevented, has the ability to assist the dentist and his staff in obtaining and preserving good dental health. 

We appreciate the value of your time. Except for emergency situations, you can expect us to be on time for you. We will appreciate the same courtesy. No charge will be made for rescheduling your appointments, provided twenty-four hours advance notice is given, so that your time may be given to another patient. 

If, at any time, you have a question about any treatment, fee, or service, please discuss it with us promptly and openly. Your understanding and cooperation will help us to create a pleasant relationship. 

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
