Being a natural wimp when it comes to Dentists I cannot speak highly enough of the team at Riverside Dental. Maia was... just lovely, as was her assistant Alice. I am more that happy to recommend them. Also, a pat on the back to Nicki in reception.read more

Jacqui was quite simply amazing with my 9 year old daughter today, who needed a filling. She explained the process in a... fantastic child friendly way. When she ‘put the tooth to sleep’ I expected my daughter to be in tears, but she didn’t even notice. I still don’t think she realises there was a needle and drill involved! Everyone left with big smiles, after a completely pain and trauma free experience. I would highly recommend Jacqui. Oh, and she does a similarly excellent job cleaning my teeth!read more

Take a 3D Tour of Our Dental Clinic

Riverside Dental Care Cambridge NZ Clinic

Riverside Dental Care is a well established general dental practice, situated in the town centre of Cambridge.

Our aim is to provide quality dentistry in a professional, relaxed and friendly atmosphere, thereby helping patients achieve and maintain optimum dental health.

We have a great team consisting of two very experienced dentists and an oral health therapist, who are ably assisted by well-trained support staff.

The practice has a strong client base and new patients are always welcome – please call (07) 827 6226 and talk to one of our friendly receptionists or pop in to 1/47 Wilson Street (next to The Warehouse) to meet the team.

Riverside Dental Care is a purpose-built practice (opened in September 2018) situated just a few minutes walk from the Cambridge CBD. Although the building is new, the business is not.

Dr Barbara Cater originally started her business as Duke Street Dental Care, in 2003, after a number of years working in a Cambridge dental practice.

Barbara gained a reputation for her caring, honest approach to dentistry. With a special interest in dental implants, she has been providing dental care to the Cambridge community since 1997.

With onsite parking (and plenty of off-street parking available in the immediate vicinity) and full disability access, Riverside Dental Care offers the very best of general dentistry in a warm, relaxed ambience.

The friendly team make sure you are comfortable and relaxed from the moment you walk in the door and more often than not, patients leave having 'had a laugh'.

The dynamics created within this family owned and operated practice, and a commitment to service, stand us apart from other dental practices.

Wonderful cheerful atmosphere

“It’s a pleasure to go to the dentists. I had neglected my teeth for many years and when I went to see Barbara in 2005 my gums were a mess. She and Jacqui have saved most of my teeth and my gums are now healthy. There is always a wonderful cheerful atmosphere in the clinic.”

Professional and caring

“My children and I have been with Riverside Dental Care for over 10 years. They are professional, caring and an excellent family dentist. They take the time to fully explain any procedures and make us feel at ease.”

Maia is the best dentist in Cambridge

“Our family easily think Maia is the best dentist in Cambridge. She is gentle, so you don’t feel like your mouth has been pulled around. She is great with our late-teen kids, so they are happy to keep looking after their teeth.”

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is dentistry aimed at creating a positive change to your teeth and to your smile. It primarily focuses on improving dental aesthetics in colour, position, shape, size, alignment and overall smile appearance.

Cavity Therapy

Dental cavities are holes in teeth caused by tooth decay. Most people are aware of the risk of cavities, or dental caries, but the problem is more widespread than you might think. Decaying teeth can be salvaged with restorative treatment conducted by your dentist.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth. It improves appearance, comfort, eating, speech and durability.
