Welcome to Duchenne


At Duchenne, we aim to make great smiles. You will enjoy the most appropriate and cost-effective treatment solutions, so once fitted with a Duchenne partial or full denture you will be able to smile with confidence.

With clinics throughout the South Island and a state-of-the-art laboratory, the only one of its kind in New Zealand, we are at the forefront of patient-orientated care and treatment. At Duchenne Denture Specialists we have always been a company of firsts:

  • First to bring to you Duchenne’s D³ digital system - the next generation in denture technology
  • First to introduce suction dentures to New Zealand
  • The only state-of-the-art laboratory of its kind in New Zealand
  • The only company in Southland that processes their dentures with injection moulding - for greater strength and a superior fit and strength

These are all fantastic advances which, combined with our insistence on only using the best quality materials in all our products, ensure our clients receive the best fitting, most durable dentures possible.

But that is only one side of the equation. We are acutely aware that having someone work on your mouth can be an invasive procedure and not something anyone approaches with great enthusiasm. So at all times, our aim is to be totally respectful, careful and friendly so that your experience with us is as relaxed and positive as possible.

We can now provide our patients with the most advanced treatment processes and are excited to introduce the DigiCare denture range. This is exciting for patients in New Zealand as it is the first time this treatment has been available and it will provide a more precise and comfortable fit for your dentures in a faster turnaround time. It is the process developed by Duchenne for designing, producing, copying and replicating dentures.* Read more

Dentures - Full & Partial

These can be for either upper or lower teeth and can be designed to replace as many teeth as your circumstances require. There are differing partial dentures to suit different situations. A partial denture is usually very retentive and a very successful appliance to wear when missing one or several teeth... Read more

Denture Relines

A denture reline is a refit or adjustment of the denture. Relining of dentures is often required to accommodate changes in the mouth and to the denture. This can happen with tissue and bone changes, weight loss and wear of the denture. Read more

Denture Repairs

Sometimes dentures can fracture. This can be due to dentures being past their lifetime or the denture no longer fits as it was intended or the denture can be accidentally broken. Read more


This is a digital storage platform developed by Duchenne. When you love your smile, you would most likely want to have a permanent record.

If anything were to happen to your dentures, either loss or damage, we would be able to restore your same smile back with 48 hours. That is the Duchenne promise.

"Hi I had new dentures put in about one month ago. I can not express how much it has changed my life. I haven't had a full mouth of teeth for about 4 years. It truly has made a big difference. I've had so many comments about how natural they look. I'm so over the moon. Thank you so much Sophia. You've changed my life."

"Hello Duchenne Team – Merivale

I would like to thank the team for great service and an excellent denture. It fitted perfectly, first time with no adjustments.
Now I can eat normally at last."

Warren Pettigrew

"Earlier this year I had to have ALL of my remaining teeth removed and to be fitted with full upper and lower dentures!! Horror of Horrors - I was dreading it!! However, I was referred to Duchenne Denture Specialists in Christchurch. They were amazing - the whole Team!!! Tristan couldn't have been more skilled, friendly or professional. He took time to get to know me and found out what my hopes and wishes were for my 'new look'. I felt totally confident before the process even began. My friends and family could hardly believe that my whole 'change' had gone so smoothly. I'm super thrilled with my new dentures - they look terrific and natural and are a super fit. I highly recommend Duchenne at Springfield Rd and, in particular, Tristan. Thanks sooo much Tristan for your excellent work and friendly approach - so much appreciated!!"

"Thank you to Helen Fowke for her very professional services in fitting my new plate. Her attention to detail was very helpful and thorough and she made sure that my plate was fitting comfortably and that I was happy with the look and feel of it. I would highly recommend her service to others."

Diane D.

"I have been lucky to be put under the professional care of Emily at Duchenne in Christchurch to have dentures made. With the whole process including denture adjustments nothing was a problem to her with her calming and professional approach as I was tending to get a bit stressed at this new venture. So a big thanks to you and the reception staff and look forward to my next visit."

Peter, Christchurch

"After going through a dreadful experience with another denture manufacturer it wasn't easy for me to decide to go through the whole process again.
I made the decision to ring Duchenne Denture Specialists and make an appointment to see if they could help me, right from the first call to the receptionist it has been a wonderful and very easy process.
I went to the Ilam practice where I met Sophia, I found her to be very professional and so helpful and has made this experience so different from my last. She was so caring and empathetic to my anxieties and guided me through the whole process. She made sure that I was happy with each decision made and every appointment was a breeze, nothing has been a problem. I now have a beautiful, natural looking, well-fitting set of dentures that I am happy to finally smile about.
I highly recommend without question Duchenne Denture Specialists and especially Sophia.
Thank you"


"I would like to tell you about my experience getting my new dentures. I was extremely lucky to have the lovely Sophia to make my new dentures. I found Sophia very professional and always paying attention to every little detail. I can’t speak highly enough of her. I am so so happy with my new dentures and has done wonders for my
self esteem. So in my opinion,Sophia at 291 Clyde Road Christchurch needs cloning she is an asset to your company"

As a first timer with full top/bottom dentures, your exceptional people skills, informative pre and post care guidance and delivery really made my experience all the more reassuring, comfortable and enjoyable.

"I would like to say a very big thank you to Tristan for the truly expert job that he did by making my partial denture. He is truly a professional, has great empathy and listens to your concerns. Above all else is an artist in his work and I would recommend him 100% to any future clients."

Peter. Rolleston

"Duchenne Technicians and staff are AMAZING people!!
I had lost so much confidence because of missing teeth, I would try and hide them as much as I could, I'd talk with my hand close to my mouth, and wouldn't smile for people or even family photos. My new dentures fit perfectly and the process was fast and efficient. Thank you so much Tristan for giving me my smile back, you've been an amazing."


"I just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU to Tristan at Springfield Road for my teeth, they are amazing! And I have noticed all the detail put into them and I feel amazing. Thank you for giving that back to me you are an artist. 😉🙏"
