I came and saw Dr Max in 2013. He explained to me the commitment I needed to make, if I wanted a great result. Dr Max and his staff were always so lovely and made the experience really enjoyable. Now I have exactly what I've wanted and its all thanks to Dr Max and his incredible team. I would recommend going to Max and Beresford.

I just wanted to thank you for your great treatment of Mitchell's teeth! I am thrilled with the final result, and Mitchell is ecstatic. My children are certainly very fortunate to have had this quality care, and huge investment in their teeth. I only hope they prove their appreciation by taking extremely good care of their teeth for the rest of their lives!

I cannot thank Dr Max enough for the tremendous service and excellent treatment my daughter received. I was extremely impressed with the friendly team and high tech facilities. The way in which Dr Max carefully explained each step of the process was outstanding and much appreciated. Not only did he align her teeth perfectly, but he did so in a way that best suited her facial structure. I would also like to mention the rest of the wonderful team as they have been nothing but first class all the way.

We came to Dr Max after receiving a glowing report from a friend. Right from the start, he was so professional, he explained in detail exactly what was necessary for Paige. The entire staff are excellent and are all well trained. A big thank you also for always being on time with appointments. Well done for being as organised as you are. Our experience throughout has been of a very high standard and I would definitely recommend for anyone needing orthodontic work done in the future.

My daughter Amber is a patient of Dr Max. From the onset and throughout her orthodontic treatment, she received the highest standard of care from all staff at the clinic. Appointments were made conveniently and clinics always punctual. I was kept fully informed and felt totally confident in the progress Amber made during her treatment. The outcome has been transformative for Amber and I would highly recommend Max and Beresford.

My daughter needed some extreme and detailed orthodontic work. The team at Max and Beresford were informative, conscientious, and helpful on all occasions. Doctor Beresford’s work and skill have had a brilliant and life-changing effect on my daughter as her teeth look perfect, and she has a newfound confidence. The team has always been accommodating to rescheduling appointments and always there to answer questions. I would highly recommend Max and Beresford to anyone, and a big thanks to the whole team.

Now I am able to smile without feeling self-conscious. Looking back the old photos and my treatment diary, I see that the transition is amazing. Dr Beresford has kept his promise and the Invisalign treatment did its wonderful job. I should express my gratitude to all the nice staff members in Max & Beresford. Their kindness and help have made my journey a pleasant one.

All three of my children have had Orthodontic treatment at Max and Beresford, and I am very happy with the results. They all now have gorgeous smiles. The process has been far better than my experience as a teenager, from both a comfort and response point of view, with friendly and helpful staff. We have no hesitation in recommending the practice as THE place to have orthodontic treatment in Auckland.

– Paddy

I cannot be more enthusiastic in recommending Max + Beresford. I went to see Dr Max as a result of an injury that required braces to fix my teeth alignment. I had clear brackets on my top teeth which gave a semblance of privacy to the treatment going on in my mouth. I found Dr Max and his team to be very professional and compassionate in their care and very efficient. I was pleased that once I got used to the initial discomfort, I was able to continue my daily activities quite comfortably. I am thrilled with the result and my new beautiful smile.

– Sue

Isabella is ecstatic with her new 'look' and can't stop smiling. She has received countless compliments. My husband and I, highly recommend Dr Max and his team, and will continue to do so with every opportunity. We could not have asked for a better experience!
In Isabella's words - "Dr Max is the best orthodontist ever!"
