Patient reviews


Very friendly staff. Great to have things explained. Minimal discomfort. Highly recommend to others. Can smile again and feel confident. Will return for more treatment.

– Karen B - Lumino Karori Dental Centre Patient, Nov 2018


From the girls on the front desk to the hygienist and the dentist, all first-class, and put me at ease. I was so nervous about going because it had been a long time since I had seen a dentist, but they were all so friendly and calmed me down. First class treatment!

– Mary P - Lumino Karori Dental Centre Patient, Aug 2018


Great service and follow up. Great patient manner. Extractions were pain-free and no issues experienced at all.
