Patient reviews


I'd tried several times to find the 'right' dentist but was disappointed each time. Just by chance, a friend suggested I go see Humphrey and his team at Lumino Dentists Taradale. On my initial visit, I was so impressed by the friendly atmosphere. Everything was explained, the treatment was very professional and the results were amazing. I'm so happy I went to Lumino Dentists in Taradale and will be looking forward to my next visit! My thanks to Humphrey, Julie, and Linda. What a great team!

Thank you for making my daughter's first visit to the dentist a positive experience. Paola, you were extremely kind, patient and empathetic, especially when you noticed my daughter was very nervous in the beginning. You reassured her and she left with a big smile on her face. Thank you.

– Sophia M - Parent of Lumino Taradale Patient, Jun 2019


I've always had a fear of dentists, but right from my very first appointment, I was impressed with the friendliness, efficiency and treatment I received. I still have more treatments to come but feel absolutely sure it's all going to be worthwhile. Just wish I'd have found Humphrey, Julie, and Linda sooner!

– Norma J - Lumino Taradale Patient, May 2019


The expertise and care at Lumino Taradale are second to none. A potentially difficult and uncomfortable procedure was perfectly and painlessly done. Thanks to Humphrey, Julie and Linda.

Such a wonderful service. I hadn’t been to the dentist for about 3 years and was anxious and concerned about the cost. It was a very reassuring visit, no blame for not keeping up with visits. I had a thorough examination with x-rays and everything was clearly explained to me. They then set up a treatment plan for me with costs and how many visits needed. There was no pressure to have something done. The dentist was so lovely as too was the dental assistant. Very happy with the service and will highly recommend.
