"I can't speak highly enough of Sean and Janaya at The Dentists Taradale. I was originally booked in with an oral surgeon as I needed a tricky extraction. However Sean was able to see me on the day I called in. He was able to calmly and confidently talk me through the procedure and complete the extraction quickly with a very gentle manner. Most definitely recommend."

"If you're looking for high quality dentistry, this is the place to go. I was lucky to be looked after by both Mei and Alycia who were very warm and welcoming, allowing you to let go of any anxieties! They have very upto date technology with cameras allowing you to see the details yourself, which is certainly eye opening. The overall check up and clean was very thorough and really gentle. Teeth also look SO much better with all the coffee stains gone... Would highly reccommend! Thank you (:"

"I had an absolutely outstanding experience with Dr Sean and his lovely assistant. I was thoroughly impressed with their professional & knowledgable, yet warm manner. I felt comfortable, relaxed and well informed the whole appointment which was wonderful. 10/10 reccomend them! :)"
- Zoe Karn

★★★★★

"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 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"
