    Jim McGown did 2 implants and removed 2 teeth. He is one of the best Dentists surgeons I have ever seen. He is very professional and relates really well with his patients. Great experience

    Eternally grateful!
    Dr Jim McGown and his team at MIC are amazing!
    On Thursday I went in for my consultation with Dr Jim McGown where he walked me through the entire process of extracting my four wisdom teeth. Never have I ever been so
    … More at ease or comfortable in the presence of a Doctor. His genuine care and compassion shone through the entire consultation and surgery where he reassured all of my nervous thoughts. The next day when I went in for my surgery, I was very nervous but those nerves melted away when I saw Dr Jim McGown and Dr Alan Millard who were so gentle and friendly. Before I knew it I was awake and out of surgery with little to no pain just some swelling and slight discomfort (as expected)…. Long story short do not listen to the horror stories from family members and friends, just go and see Dr Jim McGown.
    I really can’t thank him and his team at MIC enough.
    Thank you!!

    Such an amazing, caring and extremely professional experience I had with Dr McGown and his assistant Tenille. The appointments were wonderful and made sure you understood the procedures taking place. It was a quick and painless procedure. … More Would highly recommend if you require the types of services they offer.

    A fantastic experience with Dr Nick Beech and the team at MIC. I had two wisdom teeth extracted at short notice. The process was smooth, from booking to procedure. Excellent facilities - a kind, gentle surgeon and assistant actually made … More the process easy. It flew by and the chat was actually fun!! Good written postop instructions. I'll be back to get my other one removed too. Highly recommended.

    Dr Nick Beech was a Godsend for my lower jaw surgery. Despite my trepidation, he was able to put me completely at ease and talked me through every step of the process. Following the surgery, I healed remarkably fast and was able to return … More to work and the gym much sooner than anticipated. I have received so many compliments about my results since the surgery and cannot thank him enough for his help during what was such a stressful time. The admin ladies were also so helpful when I called with questions, even taking the time to call me post-op to see how I was healing. I highly recommend MIC to anyone pursuing the jaw surgery route!

    Quick, pain free, excellent patient care. Dr Jim, his assistant and reception all lovely, caring people. Highly recommended.
  • Avatar Leah Tunley ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    My previous dental experience (at another practice) was a little traumatic and very painful. So coming into this dental procedure at MIC I was a bit nervous, but Dr Nick Beech and his assistant Tenille were fantastic. They were so kind … More and lovely, explained the steps. They really redeemed my previously bad dental experience. I can't recommend them more. They were great!

    All staff were so helpful and friendly and I felt super comfortable and supported while I was getting my procedure done. Highly recommend!
  • Avatar Taylah Macphail ★★★★★ 4 years ago
    Could not recommend Dr Jim McGown and his team at MIC enough. Was quoted over $2500 in surgeon fees alone from another company to remove all four of my wisdom teeth and his cost was less than half of that. His team were more than accommodating … More to arrange a consultation within the week and have my teeth removed 3 days later.
    He was very friendly and explained everything thoroughly. My face was swollen (as expected) but I had no pain what so ever during my recovery.
  • Avatar Lizzie Ohana ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    With a big surgery underway, understandably my nerves are on high alert but Ian has a way of explaining clearly with his experience & reassuring tone I feel safe again 😊
  • Avatar Pee Vee ★★★★★ 5 years ago
    Jim McGowan and his assistant (sorry I forgot your name but you were incredibly comforting and did a great job distracting me when I was getting the shots). Jim was very professional and his quick witted sense of humour helped me to relax. … More I've never laughed so much while getting a broken tooth root extracted. I highly suggest you engage the services of the team at MIC, whether you have a complicated procedure or just need a little comfort. Great job guys I really appreciate what you did and how well you did it! Cheers

    I highly recommend Dr Jim McGown and his lovely assistant Jade. I was so scared of the procedure and very emotional but they were professional, empathetic, reassuring and had a great sense of humour. Recovery went well too, I never was … More in pain.
  • Avatar Regina Curtis ★★★★★ 6 years ago
    Dr Jim McGown and his team were fantastic. Very reassuring and as gentle as possible. I am on day 3 after my surgery and I have had very minimal discomfort and zero pain after having 4 wisdom teeth removed. I will be recommending him to … More anybody who asks about an oral surgeon.
    Thank you very much Dr Jim. Your bed side manner was impeccable.
