Patient reviews


I was very happy with the way Gavin van Vledder explained what he was going to do in regards to my having a tooth extracted, then having an impression taken of my jaws as I have had another tooth added to my existing plate.

– Roslyn M - Lumino Paul Burgess Patient, Sep 2018


I was very pleased with the service received from Michelle and also pleased with the respect and manners of the staff. It means a lot to me. Keep up the good work.

– Alan M - Lumino Paul Burgess Patient, May 2018


I am someone who gets very anxious going to the dentist, and really the only time in the past I have gone is when I was in pain. All of the staff were very friendly, the atmosphere was relaxed yet very professional, and they all had lovely smiles. Thank you for making my experience so much brighter - and yes, I will be back!
