"I’ve worked at The Dentists for 30 years and have had regular teeth cleans which I have always found uncomfortable. Last week Richelle our hygienist trialed a new piece of equipment on me. It was an Airflow machine and my clean was completely pain free and even enjoyable although a little wet. I’m keen for Airflow treatment for my 6 monthly cleans from now on. Thanks Richelle you are amazing. Jenni"

"After years of neglect I finally got my buggered teeth looked at , 9 hours in the seat to get teeth removed . The equipment that they had defied belief , watching my mouth get 3D scanned for the bridges and plate was awesome . When they were made they fitted like a glove first time . The service was second to none and I highly recommend Adam and the staff at the Dentist for any work on your teeth."

"I had an amazing time @the Dentists today These guys are always amazing, thoughtful and kind but today I had a whole new experience with their incredible new Air Flow technology machine I am a VHS (very heavy smoker) and really suck back the coffees as well so even though I had had the teeth cleaned up earlier this year, clearly this new technology made them look so new and beautiful and in record time as well. A far superior clean in every way. I highly recommend this wonderful team to anyone that wants the best care for their teeth and mouth: these guys really care 😀"

I felt valued by the professional approach that Mark took to appraising my teeth and grateful for his opinion and the plan that he put together for me. I love how I can dictate what I want to achieve with my teeth and I have never once felt pressured to get treatment that I didn't want. Mark and Taina are a great team. :)"

"I broke a tooth so messaged the Dentists in hope of a next day appointment. Within 10 minutes of sending the message I had an appointment for the next day. The appointment was amazing. My dentist put this stressed out mum at ease. Listened to my worries and dislikes and did his very best to make pulling the tooth has comfortable as he could. His assistant was super nice and friendly. Thank you both so much for all you both did for me today. I will be back 100%."

"I would highly recommend Dr Tony Lin, there are no words to express the gratitude I am feeling for the restoration work to my top teeth. The outcome is truly exceptional & has far exceeded my expectations. Dr Lin is a highly skilled professional, clearly dedicated to his work. Dr Lin through his calm, empathetic nature has enabled me to move through my fear of dental treatment & I now journey each day with new found confidence & just love the return of my beautiful smile that he has re created. I would like to thank also the awesome ladies at reception who made me feel welcome from the onset of my treatment. I now feel encouraged to continue with the next step in my dental treatment : ) Jennifer."

★★★★★

"I am truly amazed at the set of beautiful teeth Dr Tony Lin has given me. From my initial consultation, reception, Brooke and indeed all staff were so friendly and pleasant making me feel really comfortable. The modern professional expertise shown by Dr Tony was a delight to receive. He understood explicitly what I wished to have. During each phase of an involved procedure I felt at ease knowing and watching an expert perform his craft. Another special feature was viewing how technology played an integral part from photography to intimate scanning then onsite mechanical manufacturing of veneers before my very eyes!!! This whole experience is transformational dental wonder. Thank you all and I unreservedly recommend everything and everyone involved!!!"

"I had a crown done by Sean and was very impressed. He was careful and explained things very well throughout the procedure. Sean and his assistant, Britney, worked together like a well oiled machine. It was a very comfortable and relaxing procedure. The technology was great! Taking images and using a computer to custom make my perfectly fitting crown so quickly! My mate was jealous as he had to go back for another fitting for his crown. I would definitely recommend Sean and The Dentists to anyone."
- Andrea Phillips

★★★★★

"The care, respect and attention to detail from Mark and Phoebe while fixing my teeth went above and beyond. They worked together like a machine and many many hours later I have beautiful teeth for the first time in 40 years. I highly recommend them and the team at The Dentists. Thank you isn't enough for the amazing results they've produced. 😁"
- Anne Beadle

★★★★★

"Sometimes it’s the embarrassment rather than the work required that cause hesitation in making an appointment to see the dentist, however Sean Phillips completely removes those barriers along with any trepidation around treatment. Sean (and his chair side assistant Brittany) allowed time and explanation throughout the process removing any fear so it felt more like a pampering session."
- Janey Jensen

I now have an excellent "bite". Also a thank you to Bridget for your professional assistance. They both made me feel at ease through the whole procedure. I would not hesitate to recommend a visit to The Dentist."
- Stu Ashby

★★★★★

"Thank you for the wonderful experience Sean! I felt like you explained everything in a kind and professional manner. You placed all the different treatment options on the table and I did not feel pressured in my treatment choice. Lastly, the procedure was very efficient and nicely done!

★★★★★

"I went a year without being able to talk without pain. Talking was extremely difficult. After visiting multiple other dentists and doctors they did not know what to do and told me it would come right by itself. It continued to get worse. Dr Adam Durning performed a surgical procedure along side Dr Sean Phillips, they made me feel very comfortable and talked to me ensuring everything was going ok throughout. There work has enabled me to talk again without pain. There work, advise and all aspects of there service was absolutely excellent."
