Patient Review By Connie H

I came to Dr Hung's Dental Centre on the advice of a friend who had already come 2 years before to get her own dental work done. On arrival, I found the clinic to be clean, beautiful and professional looking. The staff were all very friendly, helpful and caring even though sometimes the language barrier was a problem - somehow we managed to get around that with sign language! My teeth needed major work as I had had many fillings in the past, my teeth looked cracked and worn down and I had had a few extractions. I had my teeth capped, 3 implants and a bridge put in. It was much more cost effective than were I live in Australia. My dentist was very good - and very patient! I am a very nervous patient and my teeth were very sensitive. However my dentist was very skilled and persevering. I now have very natural looking, lovely teeth. Thank you Dr Hung and your team for your lovely work and for the confidence I have with my new smile!

Very professional service which exceeded all my expectations. The most modern clinic I have ever seen, with all the latest equipment in house. Combined with a very high level of cleanliness, all my prior research has certainly paid off.
