Our dental team


I wish to thank the team at Bright Smile Dental Surgery for the patience and care shown to both of our children, as they were being introduced into the dental system. In particular, Dr Christine Chan, demonstrated extraordinary gentleness towards our daughter Jemima, a very reluctant patient, who was then two years old. Jemima's subsequent visits to Bright Smile Surgery have been, and continue to be, positive experiences and she proactively records the date of her next dental clean in the calendar in her bedroom. Our son Tristan plays Rugby Union, and has always relied on the expertise of the dentists at Bright Smile to fit him with his mouth-guards as he has grown over the years. I hope that your practice continues to thrive and flourish, because I cannot imagine our family's needs to be so well accommodated by any other dentist.

My family of six have been patients at Bright Smile for 11 years. Their care of my family has been fantastic, friendly & professional. Nothing is ever too much trouble & I feel like they are my family too. So Chris, Christine, Enza & Serena thank you, you all do an amazing job!

I have been a patient of Bright Smile for over 10 years and I have the highest regard for Dr Chris Hem and his staff. They are professionals and know what they're doing - that goes without saying but it's the intangible things, those important almost unquantifiable things that make them stand out. They have a calming and soothing manner for the skittish among us. I take my little girl there too, Dr Hem has a great way with the youngsters. I have my retired parents who are patients as well! It's a dental practice that caters for the young and old.

I have been attending Bright Smile Dental Surgery now since 2004 at both the Mt Waverley Clinic and Wantirna Clinic. Both venues are very clean, presentable and kept to the highest hygiene standards. I am always made to feel very comfortable when attending my appointments whether for a check up, X Ray, scale and clean or a root canal which I have had to have recently and everyone makes you
feel at ease, content and relaxed. All staff that work at Bright Smile Dental Surgery are very detailed in their work they perform, well spoken, understanding, professional, helpful, cheerful and also will greet you on a first name basis when you come to your appointment. Whenever I have had a problem or been in discomfort they have been able to help in some way either by advice over the phone and trying to fit me in for an appointment so that I am able to be out of the pain from my toothache or problem.
I do highly recommend Bright Smile Dental Surgery.
