Our story

Our Story

In 2004, Dr Paddy Greville and Dr Robert Jones joined forces to form The Dental Clinic in Masterton, providing the community with a full range of Dental, Surgical and Orthodontic services. With the well earned retirement of Paddy in 2016, after having given over 35 years of service to the Wairarapa, Dr Akash Kota to joined as an Associate in January 2016.

We began a series of revamping and refurbishing the infrastructure, part of our transition was to rebrand ourselves as Masterton Dental. Akash joined as a partner subsequently has taken over the clinic. In 2019 the technological upgrades included a Dental Cone Beam CT which allows 3D rendering of the jaws for placing dental implants with minimal trauma and wisdom teeth removal. Additionally we got a Primescan CEREC which can fabricate same day crowns and smile makeovers in one visit. As of 2020 we have grown our clinic and are proud to have amazing staff and provide world class dental treatments right here in the Wairarapa!

We do:

Dr Akash Kota has opened a sister clinic in the heart of Wellington, Novo Smiles Wellington.
In 2023 Dr Akash Kota and Dr Kenny Kim opened a branch in Kapiti Coast, Kapiti Dental.
