Just want to say a big thank you to Dr April Hyland for my dental appointment at Duncan Dental Tauranga yesterday. At all times when I visit a dentist, I have a complete fear and anxiety from dental experiences I had in my childhood. Dr Hyland made my visit a nice painless and friendly experience, and her mannerisms were amazing. I felt happy when I left and now have confidence for any future visits. Of course Dr Duncan evaluated my dental needs and successfully planned the treatment for his staff to make the whole experience worth while. Thank you again

Thank you Stuart for the wonderful job you have made of my two front teeth. They look better than they have for a very long time.

I am so grateful that you offered me the option to splint my wobbly teeth. It has been the best choice for comfort and affordability. I am so thrilled with the results and the fact that now I don't need a denture.

As you know Stuart I am a very nervous patient. You were so gentle and I didn't even feel you giving me my injection. I will definitely be coming back and recommending you to my friends.
