I came to Verve Dental for my Invisalign treatment which spanned over a 9 month period. Throughout this time, Dr Raj and his team were extremely professional in the work and service they provided. They maintained a high standard throughout the process (from the initial scans, regular checkups and ensuring a high quality end result) providing useful advice and directions going forward as well. Very happy with the end product and would highly recommend Verve Dental if you’re looking to get Invisalign treatment or anything else for that matter!

I was the one of the people petrified of going to the dentist so I avoided it at all cost!...the cost of my teeth!I couldn’t avoid going to the dentist any longer...I needed all my back teeth removed and replaced! I was introduced to Dr Kamal Raj by my wife and from beginning to end made he me feel comfortable and I now visit every 6mths...Thank you Dr Kamal for showing me that dentists aren’t scary...thanks to your friendly staff as well!

I accidently stumbled on this practice while searching for a last minute dental appointment as my dentist of over 30 years is situated several suburbs away. The team at Verve were accomodating at scheduling me in that day, and totally understanding that I had to bring my toddler in tow. I have since moved over to Verve dental and Dr Raj has completed several procedures on my teeth. Dr Raj has a kind yet direct personality that instanly makes you feel at ease. When completing tasks he has a gente and steady approach and you will feel comfortable. I highly recommend Verve Dental for anyone looking for a local dentist.Blanch

I've recently started my Invisaline journey with Dr Raj at Verve Dental in East Bentleigh. Here was some of my thinking in choosing Invisaline with Dr Raj.- There are a lot of clear aligners out there to choose from but in the end I only felt confident going with a proven brand that has a track record of working. Especially if I’m going to be putting in the effort of wearing the aligners every day and night for 8+ months then I want it to work. - Changing the position of my teeth is not something to ‘mess with’ and take lightly. I would never want to do something to alter my body without being under proper medical supervision. - Dr Raj did all the impressions for me. I was really concerned about having to do my own impressions if I went with a different brand. I can't imagine how anyone can do this themselves and get an accurate and precise impression. And if the impressions aren’t done correctly, surely the whole exercise is a complete waste of time! So it was important to me to have an experienced dentist do this and to be confident that my teeth are moving in the right way. - Dr Raj put the little Invisalign “buttons” on my teeth which are there to ensure that the aligner is in the right position to move the teeth to their new positions. I feel like without these buttons the aligners would slip around too much and wouldn’t hold still/in the same position, and therefore wouldn’t apply enough pressure to move the teeth. - I LOVE the fact that I can check in with Dr Raj every few weeks to make sure everything is going ok and is on track. I had an issue with a tooth with a crown feeling a bit sensitive and I could get him to check it out and check that everything was going ok. I loved being able to ask questions and see the video of how my teeth will be progressing at each new aligner. - Dr Raj and his staff are super professional and friendly. I love how Dr Raj is always so keen to listen to my questions and answer them as well as he can. I love how they never make me feel like any of my questions are silly and how they want the best for me and my teeth!THANK YOU DR RAJ AND YOUR TEAM!!!!!!

Dr Raj and the team at Verve are professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Have been going here for years and will only change dentists when he retires. Could not recommend them highly enough.

Dr Raj and his team at Verve Dental create a warm, friendly and welcoming environment, immediately putting any patient at ease. They look after my whole family and even have gotten to know my children. I have and will continue to recommend them to everyone. Glennis, the receptionist is a fabulous and friendly first point of contact as well.

Dr Raj and the entire team at Verve demonstrate both outstanding service and quality dental work. They are warm, welcoming and make a trip to the dentist very pleasant. A nice perk of a welcome gift as well as a TV on the roof to keep you distracted while getting work done. Absolutely outstanding, highly recommend!

After 20 years of pain and losing teeth with my other dentist, a friend recommended Dr. Raj. Kamal has saved my existing teeth, realigned my bite and and has given me back my smile. I now live pain free and eat whatever l like. Kamal and the team at Verve are lovely and show so much care. They go above and beyond to get the best result for you. They also keep up to date with the all latest technology. Thank you Kamal for giving me quality of life and a beautiful smile. Xxx

A highly professional team. Excellent customer service, using the latest techniques and procedures for pain free dentistry. Kamal, Hayley and the team identified and explained each component of my appointment in full so I felt comfortable and reassured. Highly recommended and even better, local!

After many years of avoiding the dentist, I went to see Kamal, and I have not looked back. I cant say I am excited to go to the Dentist, but Kamal and the girls, always have my anxiety in mind when I go. I have had a lot of work done, from crowns to extractions, and he always looks after me. I will never go to another Dentist, and my son has been going there now since a toddler, and I would not take him anywhere else either. Thanks Kamal and girls for everything you do, every time!

Dr Raj has been my regular dentist and orthodontist for quite a few years now. He was always very thorough with my braces and other orthodontic work, and always answered all of my questions. I'm very happy with the result of all his work. Staff there are always so lovely and welcoming.

I was a patient at Verve Dental for 8 years and recently visited a Bupa preferred provider to economise on my single parent budget.......the worst mistake I could make! It only took one visit elsewhere to realise this and I was back in Verve's door for serious repairs and work (abscess, root canal and partial crown)! Thank goodness for Dr Raj and the Verve team who fixed the issues caused by the other 'Dentist?' and I can smile again!

Dr Kamal Raj has been my dentist of choice for over two decades, largely because, as I told friends after my first appointment, I had found a painless dentist. One with high level professional skills and a dedication to providing excellent dental health care. I always receive thorough checks, useful information and intelligent consultation and advice. There is a calm and friendly atmosphere at Verve Dental, ...I not only appreciate the work Dr Raj and his staff have done over the years to protect my teeth, I simply like them as people.

I would highly recommend Verve Dental! The team are exceptionally professional, friendly and comprehensive in the delivery of their specialist expertise.

I always enjoyed coming here. Dr Raj is a very calming and always explains things in ways I understand. He is also up to date with the latest dental technology. It is a fantastic modern practice. I have been to several dentists and not many of them were able to treat my discoloured teeth as Dr Raj and his hygiene team have. One thing I especially enjoy is watching TV while my treatment is being done.His staff are very attentive and always make me feel relaxed. Also, he never runs late. He is always on time. So one tip...if you want to read his magazines (which are always the latest) get there early.
