Falsely advertising emergency dental. We have just moved to bendigo and they said as we are not established patients I will have to find somewhere else. No where on the website does it say established clients only. Very disappointing considering now I have to drive to Melbourne for emergency treatment. Would not recommend and will not becoming an established patient. I have to drive myself to Melbourne as I have pain radiating down my jaw and neck from my tooth. Severely disappointing way of not supporting your local community.

My son had a large chip out of his front tooth from a scooter accident. They got us in quickly to assess the tooth and left with a whole tooth and a very happy boy. Staff was lovely and Jay was fantastic with my son. Thank you

I had a faultless service from Bendigo Smiles. I rang for a fast appointment. The Reception staff was welcoming and efficient and I saw DR. AMITH KUMAR. He immediately understood my gag reflex problem, straightaway performed an X-ray with the most modern equipment, thus avoiding those awful in-the-mouth procedures, and explained why I needed a tooth extraction from an oral surgeon. Copies of the X-ray were sent to me, a referral was speedily arranged. I couldn’t imagine a better, more sympathetic dentist. Thankyou.
04:23 22 Feb 22
Very professional, kind, caring and informative. We’ve been going there for a few years now and always been happy.

I had an in chair teeth whitening at Bendigo Smiles Dentist. Lively staff, top hygiene, very pleased with the results.
07:46 01 Feb 22
I cannot thank Dr Patrick and the staff enough for embracing the challenge my case presented. For once I wasn't thrown in the 'too hard' basket or taken advantage of, and the results exceeded expectations. Really happy, relieved and kicking myself I didn't go to see them sooner.
01:12 19 Jan 22
Caring and oh so very patient with this sooky la la. I have told friends they must change their dentist to here. Dr Sashi is AMAZING.

I cannot thank Dr Priya enough for looking after me with such compassion and professionalism. I made an emergency appointment to have a tooth removed and literally did not feel any pain. The staff were wonderful. I highly recommend this surgery, particularly if you are a person who is reluctant to visit a dentist for fear of pain and suffering.
07:40 07 Dec 21
Great dentist, very gentle and understanding of my anxiety issues. Highly recommended 😁

Amazing staff. The receptionists were lovely and understanding, and I can't speak highly enough of Dr Gabby and the team making me feel at ease and being very approachable and taking the time to make me feel comfortable.
01:20 26 Nov 21
I am petrified of dentists, but I have to say that Bendigo Smiles has changed that completelyThe staff are so caring to my needs and understand my hesitancyI can’t thank them enough and I will be going back to the dentist that I feel so safe with

I have had many dentists & hygienists over the years and I didn’t think it could improve anymore than it has until I meet Emily from Smiles. Emily is the most professional and lovely hygienist I have ever encountered. She is thorough and explains everything to you. She gives great advice for the proper care of your teeth and is always pleasant to be around. I’m very impressed with Emily. She makes you feel like a valued client every time. I would recommend Smilesto everyone. 10/10 Thank you 😊

What an amazing experience! From being absolutely terrified to go to a dentist to being excited to go and watch the amazing transformation from the incredible soft caring work of Dr Amith and his amazing dental nurses I couldn’t be happier!
06:23 21 Jun 21
I do not deal very well with dentist visits especially as for the first time ever I needed fillings. Patrick my dentist was very understanding and explained everything to me each step of the way and his dental assistant was likewise very caring and understanding. I was going to opt for a General anaesthetic but I'm very pleased that ahead and had the fillings done at the dental clinic. Would definitely recommend Bendigo Smiles.
03:40 16 Jun 21
Had the best clean with Emily, the nurses were so lovely and reception are always the best!

I went with Emily after seeing multiple positive reviews from other parents, I was so glad I did as my 4 year old needed a filling, Emily done a check up and I knew straight away she was the perfect dentist for my daughter and when she done her filling my daughter thought it was funny and did not feel a thing, so impressed with Emily’s work! Amazing dentist and clinic. :)

My husband and I are traveling around Australia and were due for our 6 monthly check up and clean. We were only spending a week in Bendigo but the team at Smiles Dentist were so accommodating. Everyone was fabulous, from the lovely girl on reception to the very kind and caring dental assistant (so sorry I've forgotten your names) to the lovely dentist Dr Kolli. Many thanks to you all.
23:53 17 Feb 21
I recently booked my four year old in with Emily for his first dental appointment. Emily was AMAZING!! She was so kind, gentle and reassuring thought the appointment. Her tone of voice and manner made us all feel so comfortable. She was able to give us specific feedback about his teeth and recommendations for the future. It was an absolute pleasure coming to Bendigo Smiles and seeing Emily, we’ll certainly be back!

I am writing this review on behalf of my mother, who has a chronic dentist phobia. She attended your clinic yesterday for an extraction with Dr Patrick.She now has no phobia of the dentist and cannot express strongly enough how gentle and patient Dr Patrick was with her. She is so happy with the outcome. She can not recommend your clinic high enough.
23:23 15 Oct 20

Thanks to public dentists in the past, i have extreme anxiety in going to the dentist. The team at Bendigo Smiles are all absolutely wonderful, however. Usually i require to be knocked out completely, but with things in 2020 being as they are, it was unfortunately not an option and i required some emergency care. They got me in asap and looked after me well, let me have breaks to help settle a bit, held my hand and took wonderful care of me all around. Extremely grateful for their help and care, really cant see myself going anywhere else for dental needs.

This clinic is the best clinic here in Bendigo I rang to ask for any vacancies for a free braces consultation the staff are very nice and approachable and the lovely lady recommended me to see Doctor Mithun Shetty. Didn't take too long I did have my braces on. By the way guys they have this amazing open pay which is super amazing if you are tight with your budget but you tooth needs to be fix the lovely receptionist will help you and explain how it works. I am very very happy with the progress of my braces. Another experience is that my partner needs to see a dentist as soon as possible because he cant sleep because of his sore tooth on the next day we rang Golden Square Smiles and so happy that they were able to see my Dodong in the same day. It was Doctor Sashi who did his root canal he informed dodong with what is going on and what are the process and cause of the pain such a lovely dentist too! Guys trust me if you check one of their clinics which is Bendigo smiles, Golden Square smiles and Castlemaine smiles I assure you are in the best practice.
05:12 05 Feb 20
I've had a few appointments recently with Patrick and am so grateful for his explanations and the care he and the dental assistants take which make me feel comfortable. I am often anxious about the dentist but love coming to the clinic not just because my teeth are looking better than ever but because the staff are all so lovely and helpful. Thanks also to Stef, seeing your friendly face is always a pleasure!
