Patient reviews

10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for dental work

I was kind of nervous going in. I’ve been to the dentist once in the last 16 years so just general dental patient nerves. But on approach, the office was light and airy and welcoming. It smelled nice and clean (comforting, seeing as they’re poking around in your mouth) and felt very comfortable. Dr Steven was very friendly and put me at ease quickly.

– Jordan D - Lumino Ponsonby Patient, August 2021

Hannah the nurse who took the photos and scans of my teeth was absolutely brilliant. She was so knowledgeable and made me feel at ease with any ambivalence I had. She’s an asset to the team.

– Tabitha P - Lumino Ponsonby Patient, July 2021

Love Fran! Her absence of judgment is delightful and her level of care is outstanding. Also, the team on reception are terrific whether it be in person or via phone call regarding booking.

– Luke B - Lumino Ponsonby Patient, July 2021

Jamie was very professional with his advice and treatment towards me. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends and family.

– Maui C - Lumino Ponsonby Patient, July 2021

David Hong is a wonderful dentist and I have full faith in him, hence why I’ve switched my immediate family all over to him and would recommend him to family and friends.

– Mike R - Lumino Ponsonby Patient, June 2021

Saskia is the best Dentist I have ever had. The hygienists, ladies at reception and technicians helping Saskia are incredible, such a great bunch of people! As much as I hate going to the dentist, it was also great and fun catching up with everyone. Leo is amazing and Steven is great - have had a session or 2 with each of them and they have been of so much help, so understanding, and just so easy to talk to without judgement. Looking forward to starting my Invisalign soon

– Rima Y - Lumino Ponsonby Patient, June 2021

I was extremely nervous - not a fan of the dentist and have been putting this off for almost 3 yrs now!! She was lovely and comforting, she explained everything so well and gave me options. Thank you so much for putting me at ease!

– Olivia J - Lumino Ponsonby Patient, April 2021

Ainsley is excellent. Always taking time to explain things to me and a great professional. The booking, the appointments have always been without any hassle and suits my work routine. I would definitely recommend. Thank you.

– Pyari B - Lumino Ponsonby Patient, April 2021

Jamie is the most gentle and thorough dental hygienist that I’ve ever had. Period. Professional and caring, he made my visit an absolute pleasure. A+++

– Ken G - Lumino Ponsonby Patient, March 2021

Thrilled to have found Lumino Ponsonby, the clinic is nice and the staff are helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Pleasantly surprised with my bill too! Very satisfied.

– Jennifer P - Lumino Ponsonby Patient, Jan 2021

The dentist I saw was very careful and made sure I was comfortable and relaxed. He explained what he needed to do and made sure that I was not in any pain and he completed the work quickly. Probably the best dental experience I have ever had.

– Simon M - Lumino Ponsonby Patient, November 2020

I was so impressed with the service that Saskia provided. I always dread any form of dental work as I am an utter wuss. But she made me feel very calm and confident that I was in good hands. She continually checked that I was ok and she made the prettiest temporary crown ever! I have already raved to my co-workers about how good she is. Thank you so much Saskia, you are aweome!!!

– Chloe B - Lumino Ponsonby Patient, August 2020

Thanks for my beautiful smile

Both Aftab and Fran aught me things that I probably should know but didn’t so I appreciated the education and the down to earth approach. Thanks for my beautiful smile.

– Ami M - Lumino Ponsonby Patient, July 2020

I was very pleased by the dentist

I was very pleased by the dentist. No other dentist explained so well about why I should get braces and showed all the pictures and everything. I now understand that it’s good to get my braces now and also why.

– Mohammed A - Lumino Ponsonby Patient, July 2020

Professional

Fran has a very professional manner and upbeat attitude. Very knowledgeable in her field. Her bedside manner is second to none. An asset to the Ponsonby road practice.

– Teio I - Lumino Ponsonby Patient, July 2020

Thank you x 1000 David!

David was absolutely fantastic. I was so nervous before my tooth extraction and he made me feel at ease by having a good chat to me before the procedure. Throughout the procedure he kept me informed and was extremely gentle causing minimal discomfort. My wound is healing so well! Thank you x 1000 David!

– Maria R - Lumino Ponsonby Patient, June 2020

Amazing experience

Amazing experience, everyone was friendly and professional throughout! I also appreciated that I was given advice in a constructive way instead of being told off like in other practices. Great price for the service and excellent payment options!

– Brigid W - Lumino Ponsonby Patient, June 2020

Helpful and friendly

I didn't have a regular dentist but now after visiting Saskia at Lumino Ponsonby I most definitely have one! She was extremely helpful and friendly.

– Alex C - Lumino Ponsonby Patient, June 2020

Friendly and professional

I saw Harneet for my hygienist appointment, she was excellent. Friendly, professional and did a great job. When I mentioned that I had some gum sensitivity she recommended using a gel to numb the area which made a huge difference and improved the experience overall greatly. Nice one Harneet & thank you.

– Greg C - Lumino Ponsonby Patient, June 2020

INCREDIBLY PATIENT WITH ME

I am a terribly nervous patient but had the very good fortune of being in the lovely, calming hands of Dr Saskia. She was incredibly patient with me and kept me reassured throughout the procedure. I've had to return for further treatment and I'm a lot less nervous. I've also recommended Saskia to a friend of mine.

– Rose C - Lumino Ponsonby Patient, Feb 2019

A GREAT EXPERIENCE

I had not been to the dentist in a long time and I was feeling pretty anxious and embarrassed when I booked into the Ponsonby branch. Danielle and Marama were absolutely lovely and made me feel comfortable and reassured. The yearly plan and booking online were easy and effective. It was a great experience!

– Persia I - Lumino Ponsonby Patient, Oct 2018

EXCELLENT ADVICE AND A WARM, ADORABLE MANNER

Fran was just fantastic and put a nervous daughter very much at ease and reassured her. Excellent advice and a warm, adorable manner. Wonderful lady - make sure she comes back after maternity leave!

– Emma Austin M - Parent of Lumino Ponsonby Patient, Oct 2018

WE HAVE FOUND OUR FAMILY DENTIST

The level of advice and care is the best we have ever experienced. We are very grateful to have met with Preetesh Parsotam and have since decided that we have found our family dentist after relocating to Auckland recently from abroad.
