In 1996, due to the construction of the extension of what was then know as Kmart Plaza, we were required to move our practice "Ongley & Associates" (opposite the very well known James Smith building) in Hartham Place, Porirua. Our newly built premises, just across the bridge in Champion Street, consisted of 3 surgeries and our own car parking area with wheelchair access.
A few years later we changed our name from "Ongley Associates" to "Champion Dental Centre".
