About Us

Sydenham Dental Centre is now under new management as of 1st April 2019.

Three experienced local dental colleagues have come together with their ideas and experience to purchase Sydenham Dental Centre from its previous owner Dr Peter Pallet.

Dr Chamil Samaranayaka is the principal dentist at Sydenham Dental Centre. He is an Otago graduate with 16 years of dental experience. He is also a fully qualified medical doctor and has experience in various medical and surgical disciplines working at Christchurch Public Hospital. Dr Samaranayaka currently works at Sydenham Dental Centre as well as Christchurch Public hospital.

We have a vibrant and experienced team and provide a full range of dental services including all areas of general, cosmetic and surgical dentistry at an affordable price.

Due to increased demand, we have a late night available on Wednesdays.

We offer a comprehensive range of family oriented dental care. When patients come in for treatment, we address their individual needs and discuss this thoroughly with them.

Q Card

We believe it is important that people receive the best quality treatment but understand that finances are a concern for many. Q Card is an interest free payment option that we are currently offering. So take advantage of an interest free plan up to 18 months for treatment. This allows you to receive the timely treatment you require without worrying about any large upfront payments.

We are excited to announce that we now accept Zip Pay as another interest free payment option.
