"HIGHLY RECOMMEND Sean and Jodie for tooth removal! He did such a great job on me. They got me in with only a days notice to remove a broken/badly infected tooth that caused me extreme pain. Was booked in for surgical extraction in July, however that was too long of a wait. Also it was waayy cheaper getting it removed through Sean than it was through surgical extraction. Much Appreciated!"

★★★★★

"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.

Most definitely recommend."

- 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.
