Lower Hutt


Walter Szeto set up the Ropata Dental Surgery in the medical centre over twenty years ago, together with some doctor friends and the local chemist Ron Wilson. Central Hutt was very busy, with associated parking issues, and Ropata made for a great alternative location. Houses were bought to allow later redevelopment, and Walter was able to plan and design the three surgery dental practice from scratch.

The hours were long at the beginning, but after one year Ropata was established as a busy family dental practice. It has been suggested by Walter’s wife that he saw more of his patients than his own family at this time! Ropata has continued to thrive and become part of the Hutt community, now offering two dentists and the specialist Dikesh Parmar who operates with use of a microscope. It became part of the Capital Dental family of practices in 2015. At Ropata Dental Surgery we will care for you gently and with respect whether your concerns are small or large, whether emergency treatment or planned longer term care. Our modern facility in the heart of Lower Hutt offers a great location, with ample parking. A phone call to (04)920 0886 is all that's required. Our friendly team will happily answer any queries you may have. We look forward to hearing from you.
