Bad dental experience at Lumino Wairau park

Lina from Sunnynook

I booked with Lumino wairau for filling my tooth. Originally i booked online for a suitable timeslot, but forgot to change the service from the default "hygiene and xray etc" to "dentist", so I called back straight away to update my booking. All sorted by the receiption as per phone call.
Anyway, I went there this morning and told the dentist again that one of the front teeth needs filling as it came off 2 weeks ago. She acknowledged but went on taking photo and xrays. Then she came up with a piece of paper as attached, telling me that she cant do the filling today, she needs a plan to do my whole teeth which will cost me $1204 or $1804 if i chose not to be on their plan. And Im charged $141 today for unwated service and her plan. Left the practice with the plan in my hand, $141 receipt and untreated tooth. Very disappointed at their unprofessional behavior. Im sharing my experience so hopefully no one else will be tricked liked me.

North Harbour Stadium kitchen to help feed 9000 school kids per day

Caroline Williams Reporter from North Shore Times

More than 9000 kids will have full tummies to help them focus at school each day, thanks to an agreement putting the underused North Harbour Stadium kitchen to work.

Spotless and Auckland Unlimited, which owns the stadium in Albany, have come together to provide the free healthy lunches daily to 26 schools in Henderson, Massey, Ōrākei and Maungakiekie-Tāmaki.

The stadium’s full production-sized kitchen was a big investment but was “hardly” used during the week, Auckland Mayor Phil Goff said.

However, the arrangement would see the kitchen used every weekday, producing a stream of revenue for Auckland Council, eliminate some of the burden from ratepayers all while creating employment for 90 people in what Goff described as a win-win arrangement.
