Isabelle H.Isabelle H. ★★★★★ So incredibly happy with my results with Dr Madeleine Duff, she was able to give me my dream smile with Invisalign and composite bonding within 12 months! And Maggie at the reception desk is always so welcoming and lovely to chat to, well worth the drive from Doreen.Anne N.Anne N. ★★★★★ I had the pleasure of having my teeth checked and cleaned by Dr Nathan Tran today.I was a little apprehensive at first since some cleans can be too hard (which feel very uncomfortable/painful), and others not hard enough (leaving me feel like I need another clean).Dr Tran took his time, and made sure that I was comfortable throughout. He showed me photos of my teeth before and after the clean - wow, what a difference! He also pointed out areas where he thinks I can strengthen/protect existing teeth to prevent potential cracking/decay (due to age) and possibly tooth removal. This has happened to me before so I was very grateful for his advice.The whole experience was easy and effortless, and I came away feeling reassured and positive about what I can do to keep my teeth clean and healthy.I highly recommend anyone who cares about their teeth as much as I do to go and see Dr Tran!Hayley F.Hayley F. ★★★★★ Just wanted to share my amazing experience with Dr. Gareth. From the moment I walked in, I was impressed by the warm and friendly atmosphere. Dr. Gareth's professionalism and expertise really stood out. He took the time to explain everything clearly and made me feel at ease throughout my visit and my Invisalign journey. The quality of care I received was exceptional, and I couldn't be happier with the results of my dental work. The clinic itself was clean and the staff were super helpful. I highly recommend Dr. Gareth to anyone in need of a skilled and caring dentist. Thanks, Dr. Gareth, for providing such excellent dental care!Tracey L.Tracey L. ★★★★★ So grateful for Dr Gareth's expertise in repairing a large broken amalgam filling. It needed to be replaced with a crown. Lot of care and attention in this extensive appt.Grateful that nurse Chelsea was able to assist me for urgent appt, to be attended to promptly on a Monday morning and extremely happy crown is made on sites and fitted in 1 appt.Recommend highly.Katherine B.Katherine B. ★★★★★ Dr Dev and the entire team took immaculate care of me from start to finish. Due to part of my jaw missing, I have spent over a decade just coping with worsening jaw clicking and headaches. During the initial consult, Dev outlined all costs, treatments and expectations and immediately scanned me for a splint to wear. Absolutely everything was looked after and explained so clearly. All stress or hesitance connected with dentist visits(both personal and financial) was alleviated by them. I also loved the personalised welcome card projected on screen. I felt like an absolute princess. I cannot recommend the experience enough!Mrs W.Mrs W. ★★★★★ We were travelling and had a small 'emergency'. We walked in this morning and we were seen after filling in paperwork. We could not ask for nicer, sweeter, more comforting people all round. My 10year old can rest easier now and enjoy her time away. I wish we lived closer! Thank you so very much, I'm so very grateful.Vickie N.Vickie N. ★★★★★ Dr Nathan works dental magic! his expertise and attention to detail is fantastic . from the warm welcome to the flawless restoration process of my implant, every step was outstanding. He listened to my concerns, explained everything thoroughly, and ensured my comfort throughout. My my implant crown looks incredibly natural Dr. Nathan even followed up afterward. For excellent dental care, I highly recommend Dr. Nathan !Vee T.Vee T. ★★★★★ Today I had a wonderful experience at my appointment with Dr Gareth. I have been to the dentist many times in my life but still get those nerves going into any appointment. The second I walked in I was greeted by a lovely young lady who was so friendly and welcoming. My time with Dr Gareth was no different and he put me at ease quite quickly and answered all my questions with lots of information and care. Because of this I have decided to take further dental care with The Smile Designer. My experience with Mia after my appointment was warm, engaging, caring and most importantly very informative. Thank you to the team there and I very much look forward to my journey with Dr Gareth and for all my dental needs.ViPeckham F.Peckham F. ★★★★★ I have seen Dr Gareth several ti.es now and always have received fantastic care. He is very detailed in his approach but won't do any treatment that is not needed, just to charge you. Most recent visit to have my tooth taken out. He knew I had bad experienece with another dentist prior to this, and made sure he was gentle, but at the same time did an amazing (and fast) extraction, talking to me the whole time. Subsequent care was excellent as well, with follow up calls. I would highly recommend the whole practice, and especially Dr Gareth.Jenny Y.Jenny Y. ★★★★★ Dr. Gareth Huang's dental care exceeded expectations during my recent visit to The Smile Designer. His meticulous approach and genuine concern for patient comfort stood out. The clinic's cleanliness and the staff's professionalism further enhanced the experience.

Receptionist were friendly and welcoming. I saw Dr.Nathan, and he was excellent. I often feel anxious before/during dental appointments, but Dr. Nathan was great. Most comfortable I've ever felt at a dentist.Josephine A.Josephine A. ★★★★★ I must say I believe I’m lucky that I have met such a wonderful amazing dental team that care so much about you and your teeth. I only wish I had met them so much earlier in my life than now as, they are the only dentist I would trust with my teeth compared to other dentists out there. Dr.Maddie is amazing she truly puts the effort, time and care for your teeth and doesn’t like her work not to be perfect is what I love about her. She really wants her patients to walk out happy. Maggie is so wonderful as well if you can’t make it to an appointment she makes sure you get the next best day or placed on the cute waiting list hehe 😛. Honestly, I don’t feel like I’m going to the dentist when I need to go to a dentist and that the experience we need out there. I would highly recommend this dental team if you want the best work for your teeth and good experience like me 🩷🩷katerina Kkaterina K ★★★★★ This place is so great! The girls at the front desk are so lovely and always check in on me after my appointments. The customer care is above and beyond! Dr. Madeline Duff is the best orthodontist I’ve seen.
