Welcome to James Talbot Dental


My practising philosophy is to provide patients with high quality care in a relaxed and friendly environment in down town Wellington. Whether you require general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, implants or restorative dentistry, I place an emphasis on communication and creating treatment programs that provide maximum benefit, with the least intervention to match your expectations.

I have trained and practised extensively in New Zealand, Australia and the UK, gaining much experience in treating a wide range of patients with differing needs but with high expectations.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Modern dentistry can be aesthetic dentistry. Whitening of teeth, composite bonding, and veneers can quickly and painlessly create the smile that you always wanted. Cosmetic replacements of old unsightly fillings can rejuvenate your smile.

Implant Dentistry

Implants give a life-like replacement to missing teeth, or can be used to stabilise or even replace troublesome dentures. Implant dentistry has improved the quality of life of tens of thousands of people world wide, every year.

Restorative Dentistry

Many patients have dental needs that are more complex. Planning and implementing restorative care, and the ability to provide different solutions to different problems is our speciality.

General Dentistry

‘Teeth for life’ is thankfully easy to achieve for most people. Minimal intervention and sound, well thought out prevention is all that is required. I believe that an intimate understanding of the materials and techniques available allows us to provide optimum results depending on patient need and expectation.


I trust that you enjoy your time with The Wellington Dental Practice.
