Why Choose Us?

Our Focus - You

We don’t make any decisions about your treatment until we have spent time with you, talking through your needs, lifestyle and budget. Only then do we decide on what will be the best treatment. You can rest assured that this personal, individual care and attention will continue throughout your treatment.


At Duchenne we pride ourselves on an excellent team culture, so most of our team have been with us for many years. This means we have a great deal of experience and expertise between us.

Market leaders

Our owner John Batchelor is widely recognised as one of Australasia’s leading denture specialists so he, along with other members of the team, are regularly invited to work on and trial new denture technology. This means that, while others are still learning the new technology, Duchenne are already successfully using it.  We have developed D³, the next generation in denture technology, , a unique system of treatment which enables us to provide you with more effective and customisable dentures than ever before.


We are not the cheapest in the market, and we never want to be!  Instead we pride ourselves on offering the finest products at the best value price. Because our many years of experience have confirmed that doing it right the first time, with the best materials, is cheaper and more effective in the long run.


We have clinics throughout the South Island, as well as the largest state-of-the art laboratory in the South Island, so you can be sure to find a Duchenne clinic close to you.

"Thankyou to Robert Courtier for his outstanding work on my new teeth. He made the whole process so easy. My teeth are very natural looking and I'm very happy with the outcome. This was a nerve wracking decision to have teeth out but now I've got the new denture and they don't look false I'm thrilled."

"Thoroughly recommend the work of John and Rob. Excellent service and teeth fit like a glove"


"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."
