Patient reviews


You guys do make a formidable team indeed! I felt valued as a client and it felt like my comfort and satisfaction was a high priority throughout the entire duration of the treatment. José, in spite of his humble nature, made me feel assured that he knows his stuff. I would not hesitate to call again if I have any tooth issues, and have already referred a few people your way. Keep up the good work!

– Andre V - Lumino Bridgens Te Puke Patient, Aug 2019


I have never been what could be classed as a hero when it comes to dental treatment, too many ghosts of past treatment during the 50's and 60's. But during my recent visit to Lumino Te Puke, I experienced warm friendly staff that placed me at ease and an exceptionally high standard of professional expertise. I hold no doubt that my future visits and treatments will not disappoint.

– Graeme R B - Lumino Bridgens Te Puke Patient, Jul 2019


I was totally overwhelmed by the way I was treated by the receptionist, dental nurse and dentist who looked after me. The ladies are the kindest and most caring people I have ever come across in a dental or medical centre. Their empathy and compassion need to be commended. I have sung nothing but praises about my first experience at Lumino Te Puke!

– Luciana B - Lumino Bridgens Te Puke Patient, Sep 2018


Lyndsay and Candice are fantastic! Made me feel so at ease and looking forward to my next visit.

– Ainsley R - Lumino Bridgens Te Puke Patient, Jul 2018
