Not only did they identify and address my tooth pain, but they also ensured I was well-informed to make the best choices for my dental health.

"The Dentists - Taupo are true professionals where I feel I am treated the best I possibly can be."
- Kylie Sargison

★★★★★

"I have never been a fan of the dentist. My early experiences 60 years ago had a long tail so when I decided it was time to replace all my old fillings it was with some trepidation. Well 12 months later it’s done and I cannot speak highly enough of the whole experience. The treatment from AJ was painless, the finished job is fantastic and the follow up service outstanding. And thanks for the flowers and Moet!"
- Barry Searle

★★★★★

"I was able to get an appointment with 'The Dentists' at Taupo to assess my broken tooth. Despite her youth and the fact that she had only recently qualified, Christina, the dentist, was amazingly thorough and her communication to me (in conjunction with AJ, the practice principal) of the proposed treatment plan was superb. When the date came for my appointment for a crown, it was undertaken in just one 2½ hour session, which included scanning the drilled/prepared tooth and then milling the porcelain crown via the computer system – all in one go. The result has been more than satisfactory. If ever a trip to a dentist can be something to look forward to (!), this is one which I can thoroughly recommend."
- Steve Taylor

★★★★★

"The level of service is above and beyond all expectations at this fine practice. I was caught out with a dental emergency in a town I was not familiar with. The friendly, welcoming staff truly pulled out all the stops to squeeze me in, fix my broken mouth up and get me mobile and against all odds. 100% professional service by the most down to earth team I've encountered. Front of house , nurses, dental assistants and the Doctor herself left me feeling like I had departed a voluntary visit. Fantastic communication throughout. The whole team are certainly a credit to the dental industry. Thank you, you all know who you are 😉⚓ you saved my day"
