Dentist & Doctors is by far the best in dentistry in our area. They are amazing at dealing with any problem you may have and have given myself and my family the best dentist care we have ever received. Dentist and Doctors have the most amazing staff to help with any dental procedures you could ever need. They are very reasonably priced and really care for all of their patients. We have been attending Dentist and Doctors for several years now and have changed my opinion about Dentists altogether. I was always ashamed to smile but now that has completely changed. Asef and all of his staff offer the very best in quality service. Please don’t hesitate for the latest technology in dental care and the friendliest atmosphere you could ever imagine. Thankyou to Asef and all of his team as they are by far the best Dentist to have. Quality and kindness always. Regards JO PRATT & FAMILY.😁

Dr Matt and Dr Asef make you feel very welcome to their Practice. Nothing is too much bother for them and they are more than happy to explain the procedures in detail and answer any questions you may have. I had 4 – 3 hour sessions to do the prep work and fit crowns to my very worn out teeth. I was made to feel very comfortable during those sessions with staged breaks along the way. The final results are amazing. My Good Wife Bon is very pleased with the end result too. Happy Wife, Happy Life! I highly recommend Dentists and Doctors Geelong to everyone for their ongoing Dental Support. The front desk Team are also very helpful and supportive. Nothing is too much bother for them in finding suitable appointment times and answering any billing enquires you may have. Thank you Matt, Anwar, the Dental Nurses and your lovely Support Team. Best wishes for a great ongoing future here in Geelong.

Amazing service from Dr Pascale at the dentist. My son, who has severe anxiety, was made to feel very calm during a procedure. He was always told what was happening and always given a chance to stop. The ladies at the front desk have always been helpful and it doesn’t smell like a dentist! I recommend this place to those that have anxious children or are anxious themselves.
