"Sean and Kelly WOW!!! I have just had the best experience ever at a dentist. The Dentists Taradale’s Sean and Kelly are Second to None! Having finished 4 extensive sessions of varying treatments I can only but sing their praises, I love the results and better than anything was the total empathy and respect shown to me. They explained what was happening to the end and I was in complete comfort from pain. Thank you both so much you have made such a difference. Greatly appreciated Donna Wickens"

★★★★★

"Like most people I hate going to the dentist, I put it off for a bit to long and ended up getting quite a comprehensive amount of work done including replacing feelings, getting a crown, getting a veneer, whitening my teeth and i also ordered a custom mouth guard. Sean and his outstanding team provided a great experience, making sure there was never any pain and I was well informed for each appointment. They were all extremely professional and were not condescending (which i have found other clinics to be). The very best bit was actually getting to see the dentist within days of contacting the clinic instead of months which is what I had come to expect from other dentist in hawkes bay. All the above make the dentist taradale my top choice for comprehensive dental services."

"I had such a wonderful experience with Dr Sean and Kelly today! As someone who’s always been fearful of dentist appointments, they made it such an easy and outstanding process. Can honestly say that I’ve never had such a thorough and skilful cleaning done that was also extremely gentle and painless with my sensitive gums. I was very impressed and shocked when I saw the amazing final result. They both were kind, gentle, and explained everything in a way that made me feel safe and cared for. Not to mention I felt in control the whole time which was very reassuring. I would definitely recommend to anyone! Such a lovely experience that no longer has me dreading any future appointments!"

"I wish to express my gratitude to Sean and his assistant Kelly helping me to push through my phobia with caring patience and professionalism. Sean explained all throughout the procedure of having 3 teeth extracted two fillings and my teeth deeply cleaned with gentleness and caring of my fragile emotional self. Lots of reassurance from Sean and Kelly how well I was doing and also gave me the power of we can stop anytime you want us to Lorraine. The magic words I heard which was the turning point for me when I felt so embarrassed and worried about being judged from not going to a dentist for a very long time was “ Ohh Lorraine I am here to help you” thank you Sean for helping me with such care move through old beliefs about going to dentists. Your work is amazing with all your technology. I can now move forward without fear and a smile I can be proud of. Your staff at desk have continued to enhanced my whole experience with you. Again with heartfelt gratitude thank you Sean and Kelly for your caring gentleness and amazing dentistry. Kindest regards Lorraine"

- Kare Mcgiffen

★★★★★

"I just had a crown fitted . It was the most pleasant, efficient experience I have ever had at a dentist. The state of the art equipment meant I had 3D mapping of my teeth . No messy impressions. A high speed drill to remove the old filling meant I had no need for local anaesthetic, so no numb mouth. The on-site CNC machine drilled the perfect prosthesis in 15 minutes. It fitted like a glove. No return visits and a great new tooth . Gary has a lovely chairside manner that inspires confidence. His assistant is very competent with the 3D mapping and coordinating the steps in the process. The teamwork and collaboration is like a well choreographed dance. Can't recommend this practice highly enough."
- Jill Sye

"Late last week I accidentally removed a filling while eating a toffee. As I was leaving town the next day, I waited until I arrived in Napier to try and find a dentist. The Dentists in Taradale made room for me at 8.30am the very next day. All the staff were friendly and I found Mei to be a very professional dentist, explaining exactly what had to be done, while still remaining friendly. Highly recommended. Colin"
