Absolutely recommend for Invisalign services! Dr. Niakiani truly took the time to help me create my perfect smile. As a nurse I really value patient care and transparency which she and her staff exceeded. Consistently seeing familiar staff eased the process. Dental Assistant Michelle never made me feel rushed and was very supportive over the course of Invisalign. Hygenist Shawna is always a joy see and has truly helped me change my dental health for the better. They all made the Invisalign process easy and exciting. Very flexible too. Invisalign is one of the best decisions I have made, my confidence has improved just as much as my smile.

I have been doing the invisalign treatment with them and all I can say are great things about this place. The Dr is truly amazing and nice. Besides her knowledge and very kind personality, she has something that many other professionals don’t have: common sense. This is the place where you have to go if you want transparency and professionalism. Very clean and amazing staff. I recommend 1000%.

Min W. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming to this office for the past year for an Invisalign course and I’m so glad I found them! Everyone who works here is extremely professional and courteous and the whole process has been smooth and easy. I was initially pretty nervous but after the first visit I was totally reassured. The regular cleanings here are great as well! Thanks for taking care of me! Edit to add that they have in-building parking which is a godsend in this neighborhood, haha.

I must be the luckiest person to get my Invisalign treatment from Dr.Niakiani and I will be forever  thankful for herPictures probably  will not do the justice but still I wanted to post to give hope to  someone that has a diffucult case as me.. Dr. Niakiani wants the best for her patients and feeling that , gives you great comfort throughout the whole treatment which was so important to me. She knew that my case was difficult and still accepted me as a patient and designed the best smile possible for me. At the end she did contouring and bonding to perfect my smile and when I saw the final results, I couldn’t believe my eyes .  I have done a lot of research on Invisalign results here in San Diego and i haven’t found anywhere else doing what Dr.Niakiani has done for my smile..If you are planning to get Invisalign braces,please go see  Dr. Niakiani and her amazing team

I just received my first teeth cleaning at this office from Shauna and it was a great experience. She was very helpful in explaining what she was doing throughout the process, and gave me more thorough recommendations than my prior dental hygienist. I also received my invisalign retainers here. I definitely recommend going to this place because of the attentiveness of the staff and level of customer service received. They always make sure you are comfortable and actually ask if you have any questions.

I love this place! Doctors Niakiani and Raz are very knowledgeable and attentive. The office can offer you a variety of different treatments starting from Invisalign and ending with bone drafting procedure. They are willing to work with you and your insurance provider and always give you the best option. I keep coming back for regulars checkups and cleaning.

Tammy H. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I recently competed my Invisalign treatment with Dr. Niakiani and I am very happy with my results and my overall experience at 6th Avenue Periodontics. It only took me a little over 10 months to achieve the results I was hoping for! Also, I had the absolute best dental cleaning by Shonna ( I honestly can’t wait for the next one)! The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. I highly recommend!

Shannon Quick (Source: Google)


Dr Niakiani is amazing. Very informative and pleasant to talk to. She takes extra time and is quite thorough with recommendations and just giving information. Muzhda refit my attachment my attachments to day and the same thing…informative and thorough and extremely helpful. Great attitude! I love this office!

Betsy C. from El Cajon, CA (Source: Yelp)


I can’t believe the reviews for Dr. Niakiani – they are the COMPLETE opposite of my fantastic experience here. I live way out in Blossom Valley and only heard about 6th Avenue when they had a Groupon deal for an Implant and Crown for like $1600. I really needed the work done and since I was paying out of pocket decided that paying less than half what I was going to pay elsewhere was worth a bit of a gamble. I love when a gamble pays off! Scheduling – a cinch! They are very accommodating. And, not that I would suggest doing this, but I flat out forgot my appointment one day. I called and they were so nice about it and got me in just a couple days later. They were very kind and not at all irritated that I was so forgetful. Parking – totally not an issue because….they have parking! In downtown! You just call when you arrive and they open the gate for you. Mind you the parking lot is small so I wouldn’t take your suburban down there but I was fine with my crossover. Really nice not to have to dig through the old purse to find change and then worry about the meter. Staff – Great! I can’t speak highly enough of them. Quick, friendly, and very good at what they do. And, most importantly: Quality of Dental Work: FANTASTIC! As I mentioned before I was having an implant done, which requires them to screw a metal something or other on to your jaw. Sounds awful but Dr. Niakiani made it entirely painless. My new crown is such a perfect fit and feels about 10 times stronger than my natural teeth. Even without a Groupon I will be a patient here forever! They were very respectful of my time and didn’t make me wait endlessly. I did wait once, let them know that I had to get going, and they made it happen. I never again waited and I saw the doctor on each and every visit. Thanks 6th Avenue for the outstanding care!

L. T. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Niakiani and her staff have been the most pleasant I’ve ever encountered. I have been a patient for over 7 years and have received many of the services available, from basic cleanings and X-rays to Invisalign and even implant surgery! Speaking of surgery, I must say Dr Jay Friedman and Ester make the perfect team. Ester makes my Invisalign appointments so pleasant and when she teamed up with Dr Friedman, they both built an environment that helped me relax and feel calm before implant surgery. Dr Friedman has an awesome sense of humor and Ester has such positive energy (she’s pregnant yet she keeps smiling and remains positive when assisting me). They both understand how nerve wrecking it is to visit the dentist especially if you’re going under the knife! All of the hygienists that I’ve had the pleasure of receiving services from are amazing! If you’re looking for a dentist that gives the best results and caters to your dental needs, then make a call to 6th Ave Periodontists & Implant Dentistry. They will work with your insurance and even have special offers throughout the year! Get to know the staff, starting with Amanda and Paul at the front desk, greeting you as you come in, to Sandra in the back office running numbers and quotes for services you wish to receive. It’s really a great environment! Come join Dr Niakiani’s 6th Ave Periodontists & Implant Dentistry family as they take us on a journey to a brighter, more beautiful smile!!

Patricia E. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was blown away by this Dentist!! First off, I am the biggest chicken when it comes to dentistry. I know that I have to get check-ups and cleaning, but as soon as I have to have any procedure…I’m ghost. I have had bad experiences in the past and I refuse to feel any pain!! Dr. Niakiani was the nicest and kindest person I have met in a dentist office. She set my mind at ease. I was told that I would have to have an extraction…yeah…I wanted a second opinion. Dr. Niakiani told me, “no you don’t. We can do better, and give you a pretty smile, virtually pain free!” I believe her, and I already trust her. I will return in 4 days, ready and willing. I truly am not afraid. Her kind words and manner gave me confidence and calm. She made me certain that my second opinion was the right thing to do. Every person that I met was courteous and helpful. Love the office and the experience. Please come see her!!! I’ll write when the procedure is done.

Dr. Niakini and staff are very friendly and welcoming. Been coming here for years and they have helped me tremendously in making me feel good again about my smile and teeth. Would recommend anyone to try Niakini as their dentist. She’s very knowledgeable and cares about her patients and helps in anyway she can.

Jen M. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Roya Niakiani and 6th Avenue Periodontics & Implant Dentistry are wonderful! They are very helpful in getting you a parking spot so you don’t have to drive around looking for street parking. And everyone I came into contact with was very friendly. The office is very clean and updated. They did a thorough exam and answered all my questions. I’m very happy to have found them and will definitely keep going to their office!

Rebecca W. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is my first yelp review but I have to RAVE about this dental office. I just completed my Invisalign treatment through them and I love my results!! The ladies in this office are always so sweet and patient whenever I would ask them a million questions. They gave me so much advice throughout the process since most of them had gone through Invisalign as well. Shauna cleaned my teeth for me every 3 months and she always did an amazing job! She would go the extra mile to get to know me and also notice my progress between visits. Highly recommend and the Groupon I used was such an amazing deal!

Scott L. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to Dr. Niakiani years ago when requiring periodontic work. I ended up leaving my regular dentist and become a patient of Dr. Niakiani .  Over the years I have had several procedures including crown lengthening, implants and Invisalign, which I just completed.  I am very pleased with the work results of the Invisalign.  The first set of trays relied on “buttons” placed on the teeth to hold the trays.  The first few trays sets seemed loose with the buttons (I had missing teeth going through implants) a complete new treatment set (16 pairs) were ordered without addition costs.  The new trays fit well and worked great.  Even with other work on my teeth i was able to continue with the trays and did not affect the completion on schedule of the treatment.  I have never had the problems mentioned in other reviews as canceled appointments or long waits through the years I have been going.

Carrie A. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I bought a Groupon to get Invisalign at 6th Avenue periodontics. I was a little skeptical after my first few visits since I was told I needed to pay an extra $550 up front since it would take more than a year for my teeth to straighten. I paid anyway, thinking it was still a good deal. I’m glad I didn’t give up!  I was really pleased with the staff that did most of my appointments. As part of Invisalign, you’re required to do cleanings at the office as well. My hygienist– I think her name was Rachel, was awesome. The guy at the front desk was always friendly and even offered to help park my car in the super-tight parking space. The other “front desk” staff that did appointments, insurance, and payments were also always super friendly and helpful.  Maria did a lot of photos and adjustments/buttons for the Invisalign and did an awesome job too. I am pleased with my results and would recommend the Invisalign treatment. It turned out that my treatment plan only lasted a year, so I was able to apply the extra payment I had made in the beginning to purchase my final retainers at the end.  Dr. Niakiani was pleasant and of course had the final say in making sure that everything was going well. Although I didn’t feel a connection with her since she seemed to do more supervising than actually digging around in my mouth, she always made a point to ask my opinion at each visit to make sure that I was pleased with the process and did final checks at each visit to make sure everything was done appropriately. Thanks to all the staff!

Tami R. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have done the Groupon Invisalign, cleanings, and fillings with them. I LOVE Dr.Niakiani and her team. I’ll make a long story short of why I love this place: (Insert sad story of painful dentist experience from over 20 years ago in a developing country at a free clinic) Since then, I only went to the dentist when it was necessary. My teeth and gums have never been in good health–there was always lots of blood during cleanings. I also have chosen bad dentist because I just wanted to get it over with. My dental hygiene is so much better (and my teeth are straight) now because I crossed path with these amazing business full of amazing professionals–especially Shannon. Aside from being very skilled at her profession, she is SO compassionate. No hygienist had ever really spend the time and care she did with my teeth and my bleeding gums. I still have work to do but my dental hygiene is a LOT better. Everyone in Dr. Niakiani’s office is caring, professional, and knowledgeable. The office is always impeccable. There is always water and mints, they got TVs for people that dig that, free dental care bags, and BLANKETS! 100% recommend this place if you are looking for a place willing to work with you to improve your dental health.

Dr Niakiani has been professional and kind since our first appointment. Not only am I getting an Invisalign treatment, but I will now be coming here for regular dental treatment. The staff is kind and attentive and the facilities are clean and relaxing. Thank you Dr. Niakiani!! This is my second visit with Dr. Raz. Professional, expedient, and kind. No pain or pressure. I had a deep cleaning and some fillings and had no trouble at all. So glad to have found this place. Today is my third visit and Olesya my dental hygienist was very sweet today was her first day but she did a great job and was very sweet. Muzhda one of the assistants here is always a joy to be around very sweet and thorough. She gave me all the info I needed for my final aligner with Invisalign. My last tooth was still poking out a bit when my treatment was finished so Dr. Roya is going to do another scan to get another aligner to push it in so that my smile can be perfect…free of charge! These ladies are always so welcoming, friendly, and professional. I love coming here. I have finished my Invisalign treatment. My teeth have never looked better I have the confidence to smile now. Never got any pressure to make additional purchases, but I am considering getting my top teeth filed to be strait at the bottom.

I am so pleased and beyond impressed on how this amazing dentistry treats me I can’t even imagine how they welcome other patients pus the staff are fantastic. so nice and always smiling they make me feel like family and well taken care of thank you all for everything you have done for me so far the best place I have ever experienced in my whole life Wow wow wow

Linda D. from La Jolla, La Jolla, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Raz did all my crowns and restorative work, and I am very happy about it. I like Dr Niakiani. She is very caring, nice, and friendly. I definitely recommend this office. Dr Niakiani and the team always were there to check on me to make sure procedures go well and answer my questions. The whole team is very professional, and also they have parking available at all of my appointments which is hard to find in downtown offices. The billing department always explained all my fees ahead of time and made sure to work with me. I am thankful I found this office and will be a patient for a long time.

Josh F. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


The staff and everyone are amazing! Extremely welcoming and helpful with any questions and concerns you have whether financial, or about a procedure. They even helped me to find a discount service that would help lower the cost of procedures not covered through my dental insurance. I just completed my Invisalign, and couldn’t be happier with my results! They went above and beyond to work with my schedule since I leave for work for months at a time. Then when I was in the office they would go out of their way to make me feel like I was a priority and not treat me like just another dollar as some places do. I would highly recommend 6th Ave Periodontics for any and all dental needs!

Viviana V. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Honestly best Dentist I have been to so far! I have Invisalign with them and honestly they couldn’t be anymore helpful. With making sure my comfort with the Invisalign and it is perfect with no gaps. To just making sure I have no questions regarding anything with my dental work. Can’t wait to see me end results with Invisalign! My favorite is Esther! I followed her from a different Dentist. She knows how to explain everything carefully. And if you fully do not under when she is done explaining she will explain it once again. Dr. Niakiani is also great with patients makes sure her employees are doing an excellent work and explains things very well and makes sure you also understand the treatment you are getting. Thank you ladies! (:

This office is efficient, professional, and there is always someone to answer your call in person regardless of how busy they are. I have had an implant and bridge a few years apart and very happy with the results. My insurance questions and pricing were researched immediately so that I was able to move forward with the procedure. I feel comfortable getting more complicated work done here!

Lana Gerber (Source: Google)


I’m a regular patient and I’m so impressed with everything. Such a warm atmosphere and stuff is very professional and knowledgeable. Dr. Ross and Dr. Niakiani are always give the right suggestions and I trust their opinion. Prices are affordable and considering the location and equipment are very reasonable. I definitely will come in a future!

Diane T. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


I live in Carlsbad, but i make the trip to San Diego to go to 6th Ave. Periondontics. Dr Roya Niakiani is an excellent dentist and she always does what’s best for her patients. The office is very nicely appointed and they have all the latest equiptment. I am half way through my invisiline treatment and i couldn’t be more pleased. I am 68 so it seems a bit late but better late than never! Years ago, Dr. Roya did a dental implant on my molar that has always been great! Last time, i had a great dental hygienist named Shonna who inspired me to take better care of my teeth with simple baking soda…she loves her job and it shows. Be advised to show up a bit early for the parking. Other than that…5 star.

Lauren P. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just finished my Invisalign treatment and am waiting on my final retainers and I am so happy!  Dr. Niakiani is very good at her job! I initially just wanted Invisalign to fix my grinding and tension in my jaw.  I’m not going to lie, I was nervous purchasing through Groupon, but WOW! I was treated so very well! She and her staff gave me step by step information and made sure I understood the process. By the end my grinding had pretty much ceased and my teeth looked so amazing. The work Dr. N did was incredible!  She took special care to make my teeth look how I wanted them (I love that she is a perfectionist 🙂 ) The staff is fantastic as well!  They were very helpful and patient with me in understanding costs and procedures.  I also appreciated the suggestion of sales but not being pushy to sell  products.   And their dental hygienist is so personable and professional.  She does a very thorough job cleaning. I recommend this place to anyone needing Invisalign or a cleaning!  Great work!

Mike J. from La Jolla, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had such a positive experience that I had to write this review. I just finished a complete course of treatment from 6th Ave Periodontics. 18 months ago I went to see Dr. Niakiani with an agonizing pain due to infection in one of my lower molars. She immediately gave me an appointment during which she offered the whole procedure at 40% below the other 2 periodontics I had already contacted. The tooth had to be extracted and an implement had to take its place. First of all her equipment are state of the art. The office itself is very stylish and conveniently located on the 6th Ave with free parking for patients. But, the most important thing: she uses the highest quality titanium implant at fraction of the cost of other places. I needed to have bone graft as well. She did the whole thing meticulously, and did I mention painlessly. Her assistants were so caring and professional. For those of you who are looking to get this done, two surgeries are required, with three to six months between them. During the first surgery, an incision is made in the gum where the implant will be placed. A hole is drilled in the bone, the implant is placed into the hole in the bone, and the incision is stitched closed. She prescribed antibiotics and called me that evening to make sure I’m OK. While I was waiting for the third procedure, the Crown placement, I got interested in straightening my teeth. I always wanted a decent smile! Dr. Niakiani offered it to me again at an amazing price. I used invisalign for approximately 17 months to get all my teeth aligned. I was at first skeptical of these thin, plastic retainers being effective enough to fix my crooked teethes. But they actually work! I have to warn you, you need to be disciplined enough to wear them all the time or it won’t work. During both procedures I had to have my teethes cleaned three times by a dental hygienist who works in the office. I forgot to mention, their appointment making and reminders are so high tech. Everything is done through your iPhone and texting with appointments going directly to your iPhone calendar. Thank you Dr. Niakiani and 6th Avenue Periodontics staff for an amazing experience.

Enrique Z. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Niakiani was a delight from day one for my Invisalign treatment and the staff was friendly, professional and helpful for the entire 18 month process. I have recommended 6th Ave to friends and family and now they are my general dentist. I originally found this office on Groupon, so I admit I was a bit skeptical at first considering the amazing discount… was it too good to be true? But then I did research and came to find Dr. Niakiani is ranked top 1% by Invisalign with hundreds of 5 star reviews on different sites. From the moment I walked in I was impressed with the state of the art modern office, and I could not be happier with my whole experience. And Invisalign was easy, painless and gave me incredible results… and definitely get the V-Pro aligner vibration, it virtually cut my 30 month treatment down to 18 months!!

My dentist for several years suggested I needed a Periodontist. I found this office through my dental plan. Quickly scheduled an appointment. Right from the start, I knew I was in good hands. Amanda started the exam process using their modern technology. They had equipment there nonexistent at my previous dentist. Soon I had a visit from Dr. Niakiani and she explained my needs and recommended a plan. The best cleaning I ever had came from Shauna, getting me prepared for future treatments. Dr. Friedman lightens the experience with humor. Lily assisted well. Dr. Raz took care of my needed crowns and, nearly painlessly while making me feel comfortable. Sandra took care of the paperwork in a polite and personable way. In fact, this office is really meeting my needs thus far and the staff that has helped me during my visits are just all around nice people doing their jobs well. Wish I could have had this kind of care years ago. This experience will continue for me as needed. I recommend this place if you have the need for better dental care.

Tenzin P. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had been researching Invisalign treatments and dentists for about a year (and never went through with the procedure because I was never quoted anything less than $6,000 from various dentists in the SD area) when I saw a Groupon for complete Invisalign treatment with Dr. Niakiani at 6th Avenue Periodontics. I got my complete treatment for less than $2000!! Not only was it cheap, but it was a great experience as well. I’m not a flexible person in relation to my work schedule but the office was very accommodating and always had an early morning or late afternoon appointment available for me. Check up appointments were always quick and easy with the hygienist (no doctor needed as I was not having any issues) and I think I actually only waited in the waiting room twice, usually they just sent me right back. I ALWAYS could park for free below in their lot (you just call when you arrive to be let in) and the office is very easily accessible from the 5 south or 163. THE INVISALIGN PROCESS: -I met the doctor on the consultation and first appointment (to take molds): she explained the process and made molds of my teeth. -Before treatment started, they used my molds to make a video of my teeth movement throughout the process to make sure that I liked the final placement of my teeth. -My molds were made and sent to the doctor’s office (I had 30 sets of trays, each worn for two weeks- so the whole procedure took a little over a year) -I did have to have buttons put on my teeth to hold my retainers (typical of the Invisalign process anywhere you get them) that made me feel a little snagle-toothed, but in the end were very worth it! -I came in to the office once every two months to check on progress and pick up 4 new packs of trays, my teeth were filed twice to create space for movement. -At the last appointment I ordered my permanent nightly retainers (a separate fee not included in the Groupon- but still kept my overall cost under $2000) and had my buttons removed for a smooth and straight smile! *I got Invisalign out of my own desire (my dentist said I could use them but also said I could be fine without them) but I was self-conscious about my crowded lower teeth and protruding front teeth up top… however, the benefits of straighter well-spaced teeth is amazing! It’s no longer painful to eat corn on the cob and apples or to floss between the crowded teeth! I recommend getting Invisalign! I WILL BE RETURNING TO DR. NIAKIANI FOR OTHER TREATMENTS AS NEEDED. They have a very nice, clean and updated dental office that met all my expectations. I saw a few other people complaining about their attempts to ‘upwell’. Of course they try to sell you other services (cleanings, etc.) in addition to your Invisalign treatments but I nicely declined because I have dental insurance and my own dentist who provides that for me on a regular basis. They were very understanding and just encouraged me to make sure I get my cleanings done since I was wearing retainers nearly 23 hours a day. But really that’s just good business and how their business will benefit from offering the treatment at such a low price.

Dan K. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m a 65-year old professional, with no connection with this dental office other than being their recent patient. I have nothing to gain or lose by this review. Nothing. I’ve had three or four appointments, and they have done four or five procedures, three of them rather serious. I’ve had 7 or so dentists over my lifetime, with a lot of root canals, and Dr. Niakiani is as good as any dentist I’ve been treated by, and better than most. She was very professional, modest, and took time with me to explain each procedure, options, and finance options. Her pain precautions were the best I’ve had yet. On each occasion I was treated respectfully, and she personally took time to explain things and answer my questions. I never felt rushed. Her staff has been excellent and professional on every occasion. But on top of this, before I selected her office, I shopped two other dental offices, one in San Carlos, and the other in La Mesa, including having them take x-rays, and Dr. Niakani’s fees overall were about 40% less expensive. This, and her qualifications, are the reasons I came in. I found my own street parking, but for anyone patronizing a lawyer or doctor downtown, this is completely usual. Her office has exceeded my expectations, and been a bargain. I will continue to patronize them.

Nicole M. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a consult with Dr. Niakiani’s office for Invisalign. The first appointment was super simple and relatively quick. I was called back at my scheduled time, and they took pictures of my teeth and did some X-rays. I met with Dr. Niakiani shortly afterwards, and she explained the Invisalign process and the options. She’s super nice and answered all of my questions. I decided to go with them after receiving what I think was a very good price for the service. I received my video for approval about a week later, and my trays another 10 business days after that. I really like this orthodontist, and the techs in the back are super nice and helpful, and always make sure I’m good to go. I haven’t had any issues being left in the waiting room past my scheduled appointment time, or anything like that. I don’t have anything bad to say about this practice! I think the pricing is very fair, and the service is excellent.

Anh T. from Chollas Creek, San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great experience with my invisalign treatment so far, there still few corrections that is needed like my overbite and maybe a veneer or bonding for my front tooth as they are chip, I will update when my whole treatment is done. Morning appointment are always smooth, not so sure about afternoon appointment as i would have to wait 10-15 min past my appointment schedule to be seem, they offer free underground parking switch is very convenient and customer service is great, there staff are friendly. They were able to accommodate my cleaning at my regular dentist and come back another 3 months here as I dont have PPO insurance, so i safe lot of money as cleaning is $136 every time out of pocket.

Kelly C. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Niakiani is absolutely AMAZING! I found 6th Ave. Periodontics and Impant Dentistry through groupon 4 years ago, and have been coming here ever since for any of my dental needs. I decided to get invisalign and I’m so glad I chose this facility and staff. Everyone is so kind and helpful; they truly care about their patients. I absolutely love that they always make time for my appointments and assure that I’m getting the best dental and customer care possible. This staff really goes above and beyond for their patients! I plan on coming here for as long as I live in San Diego. I highly recommend Dr. Niakiani and her staff here at 6th Ave. Periodontics and Implant Dentistry, you won’t regret it!!

Kaitlyn M. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


Let me first say that I generally dislike dentists. I have had many experiences where they are pushy, always trying to upsell you or sell you on unnecessary procedures, and just generally you feel like all they see are $$ when you step in the door. Not this office!! Dr. Niakiani and everyone at the office are wonderful. They were very thorough during the explanation of the Invisalign process to me and let me know what to expect and how to maximize the benefits of the treatment. When I first came in for my consultation and scheduled my trays, they pointed out that they had a Groupon special for the teeth cleaning that would save me money. They are very up front about their pricing and definitely try to counsel their patients on what is best for the patient. They present the options but never hard sell you on anything. I recently finished my treatment and my teeth look amazing however I wanted a few more trays to try to correct my bite a bit more. Dr. Niakiani was so accommodating and you can tell she truly wants her patients to be 100% happy with the end result. Would definitely recommend this office!!
