I had a filling with dr Yuen and Summer, they were both great. Dr Yuen was incredibly informative which made the process much more comfortable. They were great during the procedure, easily the most comfortable I've felt in the dentists chair!

Easy to book online, instant confirmation and great follow up from reception. ❤️ Dr Zen didn’t race through a consult like a checklist, that was my first impression! I usually feel like there’s a ‘procedure’ at the dentist and the time limit. He took excellent photos (if you can call tooth decay 🦷 photos excellent) to show and carefully explain what my treatment plan should look like and most importantly why!!
