TESTIMONIALS

James W from Brisbane, Australia

I found Stunning Makeovers on the internet and very satisfied with their service.

My arrangements were well organised. Excellent specialist and dentist.

I would return for more surgery and recommend Stunning Makeovers because it is well organised,

Thanks Paul for the follow up.  I am very happy with dental treatment. Thanks for organising everything, it was a great trip. 

 
Andrea A from Ponsonby, New Zealand

Just thought I would put through a quick email to you to say that the dentist was great. They were incredibly professional and the service was so friendly and accommodating.

I ended up getting a bit more work done that was originally suggested…….. 

I plan to return to Bangkok hopefully in February or April so would like to get more work done……. ………what I found most comforting was the waiting room was filled with Kiwis and Aussies who were all repeat business. 

One fellow was Qantas staff and stated that he had been going to this practice for the past 5 yrs and half the Qantas crew use their services.

That was great to hear……………….

Raewyn J from Whangarei New Zealand

What an experience, this place is second to none. The service was exemplary. The office workers and dental staff are professional and cheerful and amazing. Dr Kim you are gorgeous and you rock!

Thanks for everything. Arohanui.
Rob W from Freemans Bay, Auckland, New Zealand

Hi Paul, just a quick note to thank you for putting me onto the expert care of Bangkok Smile.

Dr Sunisa was a real sweetie and took fantastic care of me and my teeth. Very happy to have used a professional and pragmatic dental surgeon who knew her stuff!

Happy to give my blessing to use my testimonial on the website and would even include a free smile!

Cheers Rob

I chose Stunning Makeovers because it is a New Zealand based company. I am very satisfied with Stunning Makeovers service. The dentist was great!!! and the nursing and support staff were very friendly and helpful!!!

Anne-Marie from Auckland, New Zealand

I have trained as a nurse at Auckland University……. 

I was not up for my initial appointment so I simply text Paul and he changed it for me.  I was picked up and taken right to the door of the surgery.

It was the best experience I have ever had with a dentist.  I have also trained as a chair side nurse for a dentist and so I had something to go by and the service and treatment was the best I have ever had. 

I was going to the dentist here in Auckland while making my surgery arrangements with Paul when it dawned on me I should have it done in Thailand.

I was told in NZ I required 10 fillings, one root canal and two crowns.  When I got to the dentist in Thailand (who is trained and qualified in the US) I was given very thorough information about my teeth and only required one filling and I had a take home tooth whitening kit made up for me.

I was not once uncomfortable or hurt.  They took the time to wait for the local anesthetic to work (unlike every time I go to a dentist in NZ) and they explained everything to me and gave me options and reasons for those options. 

I felt very comfortable.  They treated me so well and with such respect. 

They were not trying to get me through quickly or again trying to up-sell at all!  I would highly recommend both the surgeon and dentist I had and when I go back I am more than happy if they are to do any further work on me.  

Robyn C from Auckland, New Zealand

Bangkok Smile Dental is modern and clean and appeared to have quite a few dentists operating out of well equipped rooms.

The dentist was waiting in his room to greet me as were his assistants.  Given I had been a smoker and my teeth were stained from this I was still treated with respect and courtesy.   (Unlike dentists in NZ where the attitude is very different towards smokers and the whole experience becomes an unpleasant one).

The dentist was a very good and experienced too. I am delighted with the cost.  The dentist and his support staff at Bangkok Smile were friendly and courteous.

I would definitely return for dental work and already regret I did not consider getting my three old crowns replaced – so will think about this for the future.

Bonnie from Auckland, New Zealand

I had previously used Stunning Makeovers and service was good.  Also heard good comments about them from friends originally.

My dentist was good and professional and spoke good English. I have recommended to other Kiwis.  Overall dental facilities were good, clean tidy and professional

If I needed more work in the future I would definitely go back to Bangkok before doing anything here.

I would recommend Stunning Makeovers because its easier and takes the stress out of everything e.g. contacting doctors/dentists.  This gives peace of mind and they are knowledgeable and can answer most questions straight away. Awesome work. Thanks.

Kerri and Derek from Auckland, New Zealand

Derek had his teeth done first - 3 fillings and a clean.  He was impressed by how they did it, and it was so cheap!

I had so many appointments I have lost count.  On my birthday I had 2 root canals at 5pm and then at 10pm had 3 crown preps.  Got out of there at 11.30pm!!!!  I couldn't believe the hours they worked.  Derek was waiting for me in a bar close by and luckily he hadn’t been whisked away by a bar girl in that time!

Dr Tan did my crowns and Dr Panchita did my root canals.  I thought they were both excellent dentists, very thorough and caring.  They knew I was nervous so gave me heaps of anaesthetic. 

Thanks Paul, for all the work you did.  I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sea Smile and if I needed any more majors done, would go back.

We also had a fantastic holiday in Phuket.  The weather was lovely - hot & humid.  We had a bit of rain which didn't last too long, but it didn't stop us doing anything.  We did lots of walking and lazing around the pool.  We enjoyed lots of Singha beer and delicious Thai food.  My favorite place was Nicky's Handlebar, but we had lots of yummy food.  Enjoyed Bangla too!  What an eye opener that was!

I have a friend going up there end of July and her husband might consider having a crown on a molar, but he doesn't want to upset his own dentist!  If they do decide to, I'll give them your email address.

Mark B from Sydney Australia

The Dentist was a good experience and had modern machinery, Lasers etc and apart from the first jab in the mouth, no pain! We were seen on time and the prices were great. I had a deep clean, 5 fillings and porcelain caps to my front teeth for around A$650.00, beat that in Australia!!!

Evelyn B from Brisbane, Australia

I needed important dental treatment and the group trip was in school holidays, a convenient time for me. I chose Stunning Makeovers because I had used them before.

I am 100% satisfied with Stunning Makeovers service. 

The dental facilities were first class. All dental services were as advised, on time and very gentle. The hotel was lovely.

 

I would return for more dental treatment and definately recommend Stunning Makeovers to others. I had a thoroughly lovely time.

Liz from Coromandel, New Zealand

I was referred to Stunning Makeovers by 2 friends that used Stunning Makeovers. My experience was amazing and I wouldn't hesitate to use Stunning Makeovers again and I am happy to recommend you.

Elizabeth D. from Brisbane, Australia
As someone who has never travelled to Asia, much less alone, I felt very well supported with Stunning Makeovers service. It was great. Regular check ins were appreciated. I chose Stunning Makeovers because the testimonials were good, the company appeared to be legitimate and well organised.
All the important stuff was in the travel pack. The attention to detail (such as common phrases, photos of money, how much to tip) was really helpful. I’m totally happy with the service and would definitely recommend Stunning Makeovers to anyone considering plastic surgery. It is still early days but the results of my surgery are looking great so far.
 
Dr Chokchai was thorough, professional and friendly and I felt very comfortable with him. I had to have a surgical revision for an area that hadn’t healed properly, and this was also a simple and well organised experience at no extra cost.
 
The nursing and support staff were terrific. As good, if not better, than having surgery in Australia. It was great having a private hospital room, and the nursing staff were exceptional.
Yanhee Hospital had all bases covered, right down to letters for the airline to make sure I got the support I needed (in the form of a wheelchair to boarding gate) and medical certificates, pain relief, advice in wound care, etc.
 
I had 3 visits to Bangkok Smile Clinic for cleaning, whitening and a filling. They were professional, friendly, helped with transport to hotel afterwards.Dental facilities were world class. Attention to detail, right down to having water on ice in the waiting area.
 
The hotel was great. Clean, great room service, friendly and helpful staff. The in-house movies were appreciated. The peace and quiet was great. I got a lot of work done while recovering from surgery.
The location was terrific for shopping, food and transport They took me to the shopping mall a couple of times, and were very helpful with organising taxis, etc.
Breakfasts were amazing at the hotel and kept me going throughout the day. Lots of variety and a really peaceful atmosphere. With fruit and snacks provided in room and the odd trip at 7-11, I only ordered in on one occasion.
I used the hotel spa twice for massages and they were exceptional. Being a lone female in a strange country, the hotel felt like a safe ‘home base’ and over the 16 days I got to know some of the staff which was nice. By the end of the trip I felt more confident about wandering further afield and staff couldn’t have been more helpful.
 
I will return for further dental treatment, probably a mid face and neck lift in future.
Martene and Ron from Australia
I am a repeat client of stunning Makeovers and always come back and recommend Stunning Makeovers.
 
Dr Udsan was the doctor for both my husband and myself and she has brilliant attention to detail, care and comfort of the patient The support staff  are very caring and go over the top to ensure all is okay
The facilities are first class. It's our 3rd time here.
 
We are very happy with the results of treatment.
Joe S. from Australia
My dental work went very well. I now realise that coming to you was a very good move. The dentist was extremely competent, informative and courteous.
All in all I had a great experience which I find very hard when describing a visit to the dentist. In Australia a visit to the dentist is something I dread!
The reception staff were very courteous and attended to my needs with a smile.
I will certainly use the service again and I will recommend it to my friends.
