Patient reviews

I've been a client of Ben's since he first took the business over. The service is always 'top notch' professional and efficient, he runs a well-oiled crew our Ben. I have a great relationship with all the staff and I like them a lot. I also look after my teeth better. Highly recommend it, Nga mihi.

– Loren P - Lumino North Avon Patient, Sept 2021

I have always been frightened of the dentist and I was really nervous when I went in. The receptionist was really lovely and welcoming and my meeting with the dentist was really calm. She explained everything she was doing and even let me keep my sunnies on in the chair! Thank so you much for calming my nerves. I worry that I will be a bother when I go to the dentist but I didn't feel like that at all.

– Fiona G - Lumino North Avon Patient, July 2021

Always receipted by lovely reception staff and the dental team are VERY good at explaining the detail of what's occurring in my mouth and what they are doing and why. For the first time in my life, I'm now a regular visitor of the dentist and that's because of the Lumino North Avon team.

– Tim E - Lumino North Avon Patient, July 2021

I was very nervous after putting off a visit to the dentist for too long but was made to feel calm and comfortable with the lovely staff.

– Sandra M - Lumino North Avon Patient, July 2021

Great experience. Calm, fast, friendly and expert service. It was informative and supportive.

– Ilya K - Lumino North Avon Patient, July 2021

My dentist Elliot was just amazing. I have anxiety and she was so caring and professional. Made the whole experience bearable.

– Leanne G - Lumino North Avon Patient, June 2021

The staff at Lumino North Avon were amazing, they explained everything so I could understand and even did a follow up call the next day...Even though I'm nervous about going to the dentist I will definitely go back to Lumino North Avon.

– Theresa P - Lumino North Avon Patient, June 2021

I thought it was a lovely touch to receive a phone call the day after my treatment to see how I was doing. I’m quite nervous at the dentist but Lois and the dental nurse were very considerate of this. I used my headphones for meditation to keep me calm whilst I was having the procedure done and I am sure it made a difference. Thank you for your gentle manner Lois.

– Eirwen P - Lumino North Avon Patient, March 2021

Elliot is the BEST dentist I’ve ever seen + also the nicest and just such an overall amazing person. Would recommend to anyone.

– Hannah C - Lumino North Avon Patient, Feb 2021

I had no choice but to bring my 8-month-old son to my appointment and the dental hygienist was brilliant with him despite him being a bit grizzly and needing to end up on my lap from the last 10 minutes. This is above and beyond her role but I was extremely grateful to her.

– Candice C - Lumino North Avon Patient, Jan 2021

It is great to have such professional care. Dr. Burnard and his assistant as well as the receptionists are great at what they all do! I'm very satisfied with the level of honesty and caring they exhibit. I have rerecommended Lumino to all my friends.

– Margaret P - Lumino North Avon Patient, Jan 2021

Dr Elliot is amazing she listens and has great empathy. Explaining what she is going to do before and checks your okay while she is doing it. Made me feel at ease the moment I walked in the door. The reception lady is great as well, a lovely friendly face. I would highly recommend Dr Elliot and I will definitely be having regular dental checkups from on.

– Joy W - Lumino North Avon Patient, October 2020

Top-notch!

The service and friendliness I receive from both receptionist and Elliot, my dentist, is always top-notch! 👍🏻 Dental Plan is great too. I am a very happy customer!

– Ole H - Lumino North Avon Patient, June 2020

Super friendly

Super friendly team greeted me at the door. I have always had a fear of dentists but was immediately made to feel at ease. My dentist Dr KahErn Sha was extremely patient and helpful. Explained everything well and answered all of my questions. Super pleased and have already booked my next appointment with the team at North Avon.

– Amy W - Lumino North Avon Patient, June 2020

Extremely impressed with the care

I’m a nervous patient and I feel totally supported by the dentists and all the staff, I am extremely impressed with the customer care and treatment. Thank you for being so caring in your approach.

– Julie C - Lumino North Avon Patient, June 2020

Positive experience

The reception staff were very friendly and welcoming and the dentist and assistant were very informative and reassuring. My experience was overall a very positive one thank you.

– Annie G - Lumino North Avon Patient, June 2020

ABSOLUTELY REFRESHING

The visit I had was absolutely refreshing. I'm normally afraid of dentists, but going there has eased my fear now. Also, the receptionist was amazing! I'd recommend this place to everyone I know. Thanks guys!

– Denise C - Lumino North Avon Patient, Jan 2019

FRIENDLY AND PROFESSIONAL

I came in after I broke a tooth. William saw me, showed me and told me what had happened and gave me a few options. After choosing, William was able to do the work immediately without the need for another appointment. William and his assistant were both friendly and professional.

– John G - Lumino North Avon Patient, Dec 2018

BEST DENTIST EVER!

Absolutely outstanding experience! Highly recommended. I have already recommended to colleagues. The best dentist ever!
