What people say?

My experience with Glendowie Dental has been extremely pleasant and stress-free. I have recently had to have braces, and we went with Glendowie Dental. Gin and the team have always been so friendly and kind whenever I have had an appointment. It has made my time having my teeth checked and my braces adjusted a comfortable and fond experience. I would recommend Glendowie Dental to anyone. Their dentistry has worked wonders for me, and I will continue to go to them for years to come.

I didn’t expect my braces to come off so fast. I thought I would have to wait for a least a year and a half but it instead only took ten months.

My teeth had always been a tad crooked and that made it difficult for me to feel confident about my smile and how I conducted myself around others. As a result of this, I underwent the process of fast braces which impacted positively on my smile, confidence and appearance, in which it only took around 9 months for my teeth to become straight and aligned. I would highly recommend Dr Gin for teeth alignment as it has thoroughly helped me in such a short period of time.

I had been ignoring my mouth for more than 10 years. I was too ashame to open my mouth. Dr Gin is so emphatic and encouraging. He restored my smile. I’m confident with my mouth again. His hygienist is brilliant. Gentle and friendly. I’m going every 6 months to clean my mouth from now on. Thank you for the helpful receptionist. I love to come back again.

I had bad teeth for many years. I was too scare to seek any treatment. When I went to see Dr Gin, he suggested sedation. I had all the treatment in one visit. No pain. I had a good sleep. I couldn't remember anything. Best treatment ever. Highly recommend to see Dr Gin. Staff are very friendly.

A long time between visits, and very glad I came here - a fair bit of work to be done but all very clearly explained, and ‘painless’ - happy to smile again, teeth and mouth feel great. Highly recommend Glendowie Dental Centre. Thank you.
