"Dr Colette Khoo is an extremely competent dentist, and with her skilled and caring Dental Assistant Sambi, they make an outstanding and highly professional team. I needed major dental work to repair worn, uneven and discoloured teeth that required veneers and crowns. From Day 1 Colette's communication on procedure and process was excellent. My childhood fear of dentists disappeared with Colette's caring, considerate and friendly personality, and the painless injections, treatment and 100% trust in Colette's exceptional skill. Colette is a perfectionist, and the finished product is way beyond my expectations. I couldn't be happier! Thank you so much to the kindest and loveliest dental team I've ever met 😊"

"The best dentist experience I've ever had in my life so far! Very friendly welcome at reception, Brian, the dentist gave great explanation of treatment and options, most amazing and painfree injection (numbing), made me very comfortable and relaxed during treatment - no pulling and yanking in my mouth ... and the end result feels amazing ... the hard filling in my molar feels smooth and was ready to use pretty much straight away ... Brian did an amazing job! ... and to my surprise I got a follow up call the next day to check in and see how the tooth and I was feeling! Highly recommend this dentist and will definitely go back there when I need something else done and for any future "mouth/teeth" project."

"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."
