I have recently relocated to Christchurch for the foreseeable future. So unfortunately I will not be returning to the surgery.

I wanted to take this time to thank you all for a amazing service. You have all been very courteous, polite and professional but still maintaining a warm and friendly atmosphere which has made my experience with the team fantastic.

We are very grateful for the support and loyalty our patients give us. Here are some kind words from some very nice people:

“I didn’t like going to the dentist and had been putting off important work to restore my smile for quite some time. I made an appointment to see Chris and from the moment I walked through the door, the whole team made me feel very comfortable and reassured. Over the course of a couple of months, I saw Chris most weeks as he started the journey towards restoring my confidence in my smile. The fact that I had no anxiety was incredible as I had several bad experiences with other dentists in Auckland. His work is fastidious and I knew exactly what costs to expect along the way, which enabled me to budget accordingly.
This practice is incredibly friendly and welcoming and there’s no judgement. Yesterday I left with my smile restored after many hours in the chair and I can honestly say that the end result surpassed all my expectations. I am, for the first time, committed to maintaining my smile, rather than putting off a visit because of anxiety. Thanks to Chris and his team for such amazing work, I am thrilled with the results.” – Serena B, Auckland

“The most important thing for me about Chris at Herne Bay Dental is that he’s a really good dentist – well trained, up to date on all the latest techniques and meticulous in his work. But also he was pragmatic and understanding in his approach to the treatment I needed ( in terms of affordability and time scales). Additionally both Chris and the team at Herne Bay Dental are lovely to deal with – kind, caring and understanding… really great people. I’d highly recommend them.” – Anna, St Marys Bay.

“We were on holiday in Auckland when I developed a problem with my tooth. I would like to thank Chris on the excellent job he did, I did not have
any further problems and was able to continue our holiday.” – Bernadette, UK.

“Chris has always been extremely professional in the way he has treated me, always taking the utmost care to look after my dental health. He has a very pleasant inter-personal communication style, and always makes an effort to explain procedures he’s working on.”  – Dave, Herne Bay.

“My treatment was a check up on a tooth that wasn’t too happy. Very quick and professional, I was given an x-ray and I was given options and not pressured into any one treatment. Thanks. Super friendly, I was greeted by name which makes you feel at ease, especially when going to the dentist isn’t the easiest. Easy to get to from the city for a lunch time appointment and easy parking. I recommend these guys.” – Teresa, Auckland.

“Very very good quality dental work with a very professional and careful dentist who tries his best for the patient.  I was very impressed” – Emily, Auckland.

“I can recommend Herne Bay Dental. From my booking online, first consultation and the dental work being carried out they were pleasant and professional to deal with.” – Brian, Auckland

“I have been with this dental practice for over 20 years.  Through that time I have always enjoyed, yes – enjoyed, visiting irrespective of my needs (fillings included).  In fact, I book my annual experience for my birthday; there is nothing like having that clean feeling in your mouth to start your special day!  The practice is extremely pleasant and professional; and they treat me as a person – not just a patient.  I have definitely recommended this practice to all my family, friends and colleagues” –  Loretta, Auckland.

“I no longer have a complex about smiling, thanks to Chris at Herne Bay Dental. I would recommend (and have) Chris to anyone that has a phobia about dentists – no pain, excellent results, and very reasonably priced. And he’s a nice guy!”  – Ken, Herne Bay.

“Thanks for all your help. Wish I had you as my personal dentist back in Aus. Well done mate” – Tony, Adelaide SA.

“I can’t thank you enough for your assistance! You were excellent with the service provided and truly an angel. Happy new year!” – Lisa, California.

“I had a problem in an upper tooth and it had to be removed. Chris made the whole process easy, painless and I was given clear instructions afterwards.
Thank you!” Ros, Auckland.

“A big thank you especially to Chris. I really appreciate your help. Kindness from you guys certainly restores my faith! Cheers.” Andrea, Auckland
