    Dr Kalkani and her team are amazing and both my daughters actually enjoy going to the dentist thanks to their super positive attitude and fun approach. I feel very secure in the knowledge that my kids’ teeth are well taken care of (we have been to other dentists who did not “catch” certain issues with my daughter’ s teeth). Dr Kalkani explains everything clearly and is thorough in her investigation. The team are also amazing at teaching the children the proper techniques for brushing and flossing. This is repeated at every visit. I can’t recommend them enough!

    Cannot recommend Maria enough. Our 3 year old needed a tooth removed, all other dentists were saying no (as general required). Maria did it in minutes with a local and our little girl came away smiling and was not once distressed.

    Can't thank you enough for being so patient and caring with my 10 months son as he had a severe tongue tie. You have calmed myself and tried your best to comfort my sun during his surgery. Before the surgery his tongue could barely move and now his such a happy baby with his tongue out all the time. Don't know what I would do without you.

    Maria is truly amazing my daughter was really scared but as soon as Maria started talking she was comforted and happy, ever since she can't wait to see her again. Thank you so much.

    Dr Kalkani is a superb paediatric (kids) dentist. My little daughter required a general anaesthetic procedure which Dr Kalkani effortlessly performed under local anaesthetic instead. Throughout the treatment process she demonstrated outstanding care, excellent communication with my daughter and ourselves. My daughter immediately developed a trusting relationship with Dr Kalkani due to her warm and caring personality. As a surgeon, I cannot fault her care, compassion, skills and expertise. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Kalkani to my friends or family.

    Dr Kalkani is an amazing dentist for children. I have know her for many years. She has taken care of my three younger children's teeth. We have had several issues with their teeth due to hypomineralisation of their teeth. She is extremely knowledgeable and has keep me informed of how things will progress, of possible treatments and has always been available to speak and has even proactively reached out to me to speak about the situation. I cannot recommend her enough.
