It’s not lightly I recommend Andrea as a dentist, knowing how stressful it is finding a dentist and not knowing if they’re any good or not ... Personally I had bad experiences both in NZ and abroad prior to seeing Andrea. Unfortunately she recommended that most of the fillings I had received over the years be replaced as the teeth were decaying under the fillings. Not what I wanted to hear so I took independent professional advice and it turns out that she was right, hence I subsequently spent a fair bit of time in her chair. I very quickly came to appreciate Andrea’s low key style of working, both Andrea and her assistant put me at ease and worked really well as a team. She’s a perfectionist, but not a control freak, on the contrary she always gave me choices about what to do, along with the pros and cons of each choice (in as much detail as I wanted) which I really appreciated. The other thing I really like about the way that she works is that after every treatment her invoice had full details about what she’s done. Where there’s a filling she notes what tooth, and what type. Where there’s something to keep an eye on she notes that too. A much higher level of transparency and accountability compared to any other dentist I had visited. I’d have absolutely no hesitation in giving Andrea my full recommendation and wish her all the best out west.
Andrea provides a very caring and thorough dental service. Her approach to treatment is always done in consultation with the patient and I have always felt completely informed every step of the way. For someone with a fear of any dental treatment, Andrea’s gentle but utterly professional care has meant that I have come to appreciate her unique expertise; totally painless and long lasting. I can whole heartedly recommend Andrea to anyone who has been putting off dental treatment.”
Waide was 5 years old when he first visited Andrea. He had quite a large supernumery tooth emerging from the roof of his mouth and it was clearly interfering with the growth of his second teeth. At each stage Andrea suggested all available options. As a mother I did not want to put Waide off the dentist for life by having a painful injection. Andrea immediately put Waide at ease on his first visit by her gentle manner. She advised about and investigated the best way to deal with the extraction. Andrea found an experienced mobile anaesthetist to sedate Waide briefly for the procedure. Thank you Andrea.
