Friendly and welcoming staff at the reception. Dr. Neha is punctual and professional making it a straightforward and pleasant experience with quality treatment. It's a pity they don't have direct billing with many insurance providers for dental.

I took my 3 kids to Apex Medical and Dental today. Dr Catherine is so amazing with the kids, we've been her patients for over 2 years and never been disappointed. She just know how to engage with the kids and make sure they feel comfortable, explaining each step to them. We ended up having ear piercing for one of my girls as well. Dr Melanie, thank you for making my daughter feel at ease. The personal touch and smiles from everyone from reception straight through the practice is something you don't get all over. Thanks again!

Like most people, I am not a big fan of going to the dentist. Fortunately I have now had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Rena and the team at Apex. The atmosphere at Apex is relaxed but also extremely professional. Dr. Rena took the time to explain all the work I needed and was really gentle and talked me through the processes as we were going. Highly recommended if you are a nervous patient like I am. Thank you Apex.
