We want to hear from you. We'll make sure you can sleep at night.

Get Started

Come in to Burford Dental and we can talk to you about what we see is the problem and what we can do about it. And here is the kicker – we don’t charge you for an orthodontic consultation and you get a free cup of coffee [with sugar and milk if you ask nicely] at the same time! And if you go ahead with orthodontic treatment for you or your small adults, then our fees are likely to be less than those of other dentists around the patch. Try us and see. Phone for an appointment at 09 524  0424. We are near Newmarket remember, but we don’t mind if you come from further away. We are treating patients from as far away as Kaitaia and Christchurch just now. And we still treat a patient who used to come to the office all the way from Christmas Island [bet you can’t find that on a map!]

About Us

John Burford moved to Auckland from the South Island’s West Coast in 1991. He bought an old villa in Alpers Avenue and converted it into a dental office which flourished and morphed into one of Auckland’s most highly regarded dental practices.
Although this is a family dental group, the office’s reputation has grown on high quality general dental [that means we aren’t specialists] orthodontics along with treatments for jaw dysfunction and a range of head and neck pains.

The practice is based in a great looking purpose-built office designed by Michael Unthank [an architect and dentist] living in Nebraska [that’s real cowboy country!] and Barney Milic living in Auckland.

If you are looking for a dental office that is cheerful and inviting, where the staff are highly trained and pleasant, the coffee is better than you get at your corner cafe, the dentists are experienced and familiar with the latest technologies, all the staff are either handsome or beautiful, and especially if you get headaches or your children have munted smiles, then this is the place for you.

Burford Dental is located at 19 Alpers Avenue on the southern fringe of Newmarket. If you need parking, there are 14 car parks at the back of the property - just drive on in. We promise to meet you with a smile.

I was so impressed by the orthodontic results Dr Burford achieved for a friend's son that, after years of procrastinating, I was motivated to finally get my teeth straightened. My only regret was that I wish I had done it sooner! John has taken terrific care of me, always explaining in detail the reasons for all the procedures. He has a great chairside manner and his depth of knowledge is very impressive. His team has been wonderful too - always welcoming and friendly. I wholeheartedly recommend the practice. Thank again Dr Burford and team!

My brother and I both had full orthodontic treatment - Adjustable plates then Braces then Retainer We both went and saw John Burford - who is amazing. They believe in not pulling teeth, rather, using plates to realign the jaw to make room for the teeth.

Ours were $6000 for the full treatment including all our X-Rays, Appointments, Plates, Braces etc Good luck! 

- Happy customer
