Serving the Community since 1966
Originally formed in 1966 by Dr. Michael Croagh at 301 High Street, our clinic has always had the purpose of serving the Ashburton community and the surrounding suburbs. For over half a century we have provided high quality dentistry and service.
In April 2011, Dr Robert Ong was invited by Dr Croagh to become joint Practice Principal. The practice was always run as a family orientated practice and over the years had gained an excellent reputation in the community. Dr Robert Ong aims to continue and expand on the great foundations that have been put in place.
Ashburton Family Dental has been able to expand in size, now incorporating 3 dentists, a team of 7 nurses and receptionist. This important development is providing the community with a very high standard of dental services in a warm, friendly environment for each member of your family.
Dr Ong said: “I am extremely proud of the commitment and service we provide to our patients, along with the modern dental technology we employ to provide the latest in dental techniques and care to all of our patients. We hope to provide high quality dentistry with ethics and integrity – in our eyes, the patient always comes first.”
Newly refurbished facilities
In 2015 we have completed a full refurbishment of our entire clinic with the aim of meeting the evolving needs of our patients. The building continues to provide a warm and welcoming reception area where patients can relax before their treatment, 3 fully equipped treatment suites, a decontamination & sterilization centre which more than exceeds the current requirements of the health boards. We look forward to continuing to provide a very high standard of service & dentistry to our current patients as well as welcoming many new faces to our clinic.
