The staff at the practice were all so friendly and helpfulLynette, Australia, 14 05 22

Dr Chodree is a fantastic dentist, can highly recommend her. Residing in Australia I went to Dr Chodree to have bridging crowns done while visiting family, as I am a nervous patient she informed me the whole time why and what she is doing to calm me. She gave me advise on what to do after the procedure. She is extremely busy but I can understand why. The staff at the practice were all so friendly and helpful. Thank you Dr Chodree, I am a very happy customer.

Dr Sibda creates a calm and happy environment which is so great especially if you (like me) suffer with anxiety going to any doctor. Removed 2 wisdoms at the same time and it was swift and careful. Also Dr Sibda checks in with you after your extraction to make sure you’re doing fine.

They went above and beyond to make me feel comfortableRobert, US, 03 10 22

4 years and Satisfied! Dr. Hartshorne is one in a Million.The professionalism and friendliness of the whole team was outstanding. Undoubtedly the best dental-related experience I’ve ever had. From the first day I visited this office I’ve felt as though I’ve been cared for and treated in the best possible way. I had 5 Implants. They went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. The result from my dental implants was great.. about 8 months later, one tooth seemed to be a bit lose, but he had warned me that it rarely ever happens, but if it does, feel free to come in, we'll take care of it, and he did. Also note that the office and operating rooms are incredibly clean. I also found it nice that they do everything from the consultation to the procedure at the same place. Modern Equipment in a nice facility with a doctor that knows his job was a game changer for me. The Money, was worth my Smile. Every visit was like visiting friends

I am very touched by her/their kindness and the dental work is excellentNicole, South Africa, 09 08 21

Amazing staff. I went in with badly damaged/ broken teeth, from ongoing stress and grinding, and on a really tight budget. I was also pretty traumatised after a difficult life challenge and the staff were were gentle, kind, supportive and helpful. Dr Parker also gave me a discount and squeezed an additional bit of work on a broken front tooth, which was causing me some embarrassment, because in her words, "She wanted me to feel better." I am very touched by her/their kindness and the dental work is excellent! Thank you to all at Kromboom Dental Center.
