    Default Affordable dental care for NZ Pensioner

    My 78 year old mother lives in Auckland and as I live overseas, I'm looking for information about affordable dental care for her. She holds a SuperGold card & is receipt of a NZ Superannuation payment. I'm not actually sure whether that card entitles her to many discounts but she is finding it difficult to find affordable dental care.

    What discounts are available to her and where can she go to find a good and affordable dentist in or near the West Auckland region? Appreciate any assistance!

    I don't know about Auckland but here in Dunedin quite a few people go to the Dentist School where studens from Otago University are performing. There might be something similar up there?

    These people seem reasonable.

    Thanks for this idea - I'd forgotten about the dentistry students

    Otago's the only dental school in NZ.
