Reviews

Hello, my name is Charlotte, I’m coming from France. I’m here in Vietnam for almost 3 years and since I’m here I’ve been visited Starlight Dental Clinic. And I’ve seen Dr Philippe.

I’m very happy with the prestation that we have here, the welcome, the clinic is actually.. I think the atmosphere is very warm, they are very friendly, family oriented. Everybody knows me now so when I come here, they just ask me some question about my family, my kids not only my oral teeth and oral issues.

I can definitely recommend Starlight Dental Clinic because the staffs and the dentists are very good, very professional and I really trust them. I’ve never got any fear to come here because you know, most of people when they go to the dentist, they are afraid, they don’t want, they will have pain… I really feel confident to come here because I know the doctor will not hurt me, he will treat my teeth in a gentle way and even the pleasure to come actually.

I can refer Starlight Dental Clinic to all my friend, to everybody and I also came here with my daughter, she’s only 4 years old. And the first time she came it was just like an introduction, she talked with the dentist – Dr Thao, he’s very good for kids, very friendly and he just talked to her, made some jokes, gave her balloons and the atmosphere, the feeling was very good. And then we came again and now my daughter, she really not afraid to go to the dentist and to see him and she even happy to go there.

So, I really like this place, very nice clinic and I would recommend this to everybody.

My name is Wellington Dos Santos, I’m from Australia.

I have just finished my treatment at Starlight Dental clinic in Vietnam.

I have arrived for the first time in August 2014 with a very bad teeth, crooked biting, infections, bone graft to be done, sinus graft to be done, the worse scenario you can imagine.

So, I have done four trips to Vietnam since then and here I am now with a complete brand new mouth, perfect bite, amazing smile and the certainty of a bright future ahead.

I would like to thank Dr. Philippe Guettier for looking after me since the first minute I arrived in the clinic to the last day of treatment.

Dr.Philippe Sebbag, Dr. Dao Duc Linh, Le Thi Thu Thao and the whole Starlight Team, thank you all for looking after me so well.

Thanks you.

My name is James Murphy, I am an expatriate in America. I’m a lecturer in finance at a local Ho Chi Minh university. And I first arrived in Vietnam 15 years ago, in April of 2001. And since August 2001, I’ve been a client of Dr Philippe at Starlight Dental. Since that time, I have a very close relationship with the doctors and with Starlight.

I always encourage my friends and family to use Starlight, even my son who lives in Vietnam for several years came to Starlight and had an orthodontic work done quite successfully. And there is an added benefit coming to Starlight, it’s not just coming to see the dentist, it’s a venerable art museum in this office. Dr Philippe is a lover of finding artwork and there are quite a few paintings and some work hanging up. I always leave them gentle ask when can I take one home with me. it’s overall very very blessed and experienced. I can’t remember in my town that I always looking forward to going to the dentist office but these days it’s enjoyable to come here, the office is relaxed, the layout is very very comfortable, very beautiful and overall it’s a very nice experience.
