★★★★★"So grateful for Dr Mia Chua and her lovely assistant on the day (I didn’t catch her name unfortunately!) for my teeth cleaning. I was so anxious but they made sure I was comfortable, always checked in to see if I was okay and had a really nice conversation with me all the way through. Dr Mia recommended some great products which was really helpful. Her assistant talked me through every step of the process as I had my teefies cleaned! I feel so much better about the whole experience now and will absolutely be back in the future. 😊"
★★★★★"Danny is the man! He only wants the best for his patients, he explains things very well and provides many treat options, I can't say enough good things about him. High recommend"
★★★★★"The wonderful Natasha and her assistant Neve took fabulous care of me and my teeth today. I'm a bit of a nervous Nellie with dental visits. The prelim kōrero discussion about whats going on in my waha with my niho (mouth and teeth) helped ease the anxiety- thanks for that Natasha. I confidently sorted another visit when Natasha is next next free 😃😁 cheers Patti"
★★★★★"My wife was very anxious before her dental procedure. Danny was very patient to explain the procedure again. She felt very much less anxious. If you want the best in Rotorua make sure you ask for Danny."
★★★★★"Going to the dentist might be my new hobby after Danny and Keely made light work of my wisdom teeth. Best experience I have had. Highly recommended."
★★★★★"Big thumbs up 👍 to Maia and Cheyenne, this is the first time I've ever had a relaxing, pain-free dental treatment. Very professional, caring, respectful and friendly, This is by far the best experience I have ever had, thankyou 😊 Posted on behalf of my mum Sarah."
★★★★★"I am a very anxious patient and needed some attention. Dr Natasha Manuson and her technicians were incredible! I had sedation but for some reason it wasn't having the desired effect so we went along with the treatment anyway. Natasha was the most kind, caring and considerate dentist I have ever met. Bravo team"
★★★★★"Friendly,helpful reception, Dr Maia Tapsell and her nurse gave first class treatment, professional and painless. This is now 'my dentist'."
★★★★★"Thank you Danny! (And keeley!) For helping me feel relaxed and well informed when getting all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed. You guys are great. Rebooked with Danny already!"
★★★★★"Last year in 2022 I had an abcessed tooth and my Dentist had retired. Lucky for me The Dentists Rotorua were able to take me at short notice and I feel so fortunate to now have Dr Natasha Manuson as my Dentist as her services are outstanding. After that initial appointment my personal plan for restoring my smile and protecting my teeth for the future was made up and everything was explained fully with all the options, different procedures and prices in writing for me and presented in a way that I could make decisions about which option was the best. Natasha is very professional, takes pride in her dentistry and is so gentle and thorough I always felt well looked after, and her assistant Niamh was very kind and thoughtful going the extra to make sure I was comfortable. They make a great team and I highly recommend Dr Natasha and The Dentists Rotorua."
★★★★★"Visiting NZ from the UK and started with tooth pain. The Dentists were wonderful fitting me in at short notice and Maia sorted my infection out. All the staff; reception, dental nurse and Maia were wonderful. Tooth pain has now gone and I can continue to enjoy my holiday. Thank you"

★★★★★"Natasha did such an awesome job. Really happy with my experience with her."
★★★★★"Once again, the Dentists Rotorua, or to be more precise, Dr Danny Lee and Sarah Leishman, managed to arrange help for me and a very sore tooth on a busy Friday. For the second time in 15 months The Dentists Rotorua exceeded what could reasonably have been expected.They're a great team, thank you!"
★★★★★"Absolutely wonderful professional service. Went the extra mile to help me. Thank you from Frankie O'Connor-Young"
★★★★★"From having a fear of the Dentist for ever in a day, right from child hood, always making excuses, well that changed 3 years ago when I joined "The Dentist" in Rotorua. I saw a Dentist "Danny", who changed my experience and I now go religiously for treatment or annual checkups. He gave me the confidence, was very informative, showed me the x-rays, explained everything, talked about short and longer term plans. These guys are professional, sincere and care. I would recommend "The Dentist" to any body looking for treatment to definitely give these guys a go. Richard B"
★★★★★"Wow, 100% recommend The Dentist. After several decades of not going to a dentist thanks to awful experiences from school dental nurses, I realised I needed to practice what I preached to our son in regards to looking after his teeth - I overcame my fear and rang these guys. Very understanding and supportive. My first visit was back in August 2021, I had the lovely Charlotte and Maia (what an wonderful team). I have since returned for a check up and for work on an old sports injury. Charlotte and Maia are very supportive. Charlotte explains everything which will happen. Very impressed with The Dentist, from the moment you step inside you can certainly see and will experience that this team is dedicated to your oral health. Special mention also to Cindy on receptionist. Thank you."
★★★★★"Brilliant service; chipped my front tooth, and was seen and fixed straight away. Very friendly and informative staff. Couldn't have asked for a better service."
★★★★★"I would highly recommend this dental practice. I had most of my worn down front teeth built up by top technology called dental abrasion. I was so impressed by the procedure and the team work between the assistant and dentist. My teeth look great and I will be going back in the future. Efficient staff all round. Well done !!"
★★★★★"I’m usually very anxious at the dentists but Susie is so calm/ patient with me I feel at ease. Top technology - very clean - hygienic. Kind receptionists Every time I go. I’ve enrolled all my adult children here. Keep up the wonderful work :)"
★★★★★"Wonderful dentist highly recommend. I had my wisdom teeth extracted. I've had a bad experience and she made sure to calmly explain everything and make sure I was completely numb before proceeding. I would gladly go back!"
★★★★★"Very friendly staff!"
