23 March 2020

In light of today’s announcement by the government, the NZ Dental Council has requested that all non-essential and elective dental services, particularly those generating aerosol, should be suspended immediately to reduce the risk of community spread, including to our staff and our patients.

Pathway Dental has decided to cease all regular dental treatment until further notice but is still offering dental care for urgent dental cases so please call our reception for further information.
