I was looking for a good dentist an Invisalign treatment. Dr Akhavan delivered a great experience as she took the time to explain me the steps and made sure to plan follow up visits. I am extremely satisfied about the quality of my Invisalign. No one can notice it and it is a huge advantage compared to the traditional braces.
Definitely recommend it!

I originally chose this office years ago because it was covered by my insurance, highly rated, and Dr. Akhavan had the best teeth of all the doctor photos I had looked at :). And now I understand why they are so well-liked. Dr. Akhavan is a kind, patient and extremely skilled doctor, and Jakima, the dental assistant, is the perfect foil for her. Together with Valerie, they round up a superbly run dental office. I love that the doctor is available on Fridays and has kind advice and never pushes unnecessary procedures. The goodies bag at the end of every visit is a sweet touch. Highly recommended.

Dr. Akhavan’s is the most gentle dentist I have ever visited! She is very thorough and precise and went through every procedure in detail with me, answered all my questions and explained everything she was doing, thus making me feel completely comfortable in her hands. Her staff is also very helpful and kind. Both her office manager and her assistant did their best to accommodate any requests and made the experience as pleasant as it could be! You won’t find a better dentist in Manhattan!

Dr. Akhavan is the most accomplished dentist I have ever met: thorough, skilled, professional, experienced. In addition her kindness and warm smile make every appointment as sweet an experience as it can be. Her office manager is great too: always precise and organized, she will solve any -and I mean ANY- insurance question you may have. Five star experience!

The whole staff is extremely friendly and accommodating – they even ask if you want a special Spotify playlist during your appointment. Dr. Akhavan takes time to explain everything, putting you at ease. It also clean and has some really cool technology. It makes me actually enjoy going to the dentist!

E J. from Forest Hills, NY (Source: Yelp)


I have seen Dr. Akhavan several times over the course of 2 years for exams and cavity work and felt at ease and comfortable with her from the first visit.. She is AMAZING! Very thorough and takes time to explain recommended procedures, as well as go over her exam findings. Most importantly she listens to you the patient and works with you to ensure you have the desired results without the “sales” pitch, pushing or scaring you into it.

Zachary B. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Akhavan is fantastic! I recently switched dentists since moving to the city. She was patient and kind, and truly took the time to answer all of my questions and explain everything to me. It really makes a difference because you can tell that she cares about her patients. Her staff is also amazing. Margherita was easy to communicate with via email, and scheduling was very smooth. There wasn’t even a wait (and they were kind even though I ran a few minutes late). The whole team there is awesome! I highly recommend Dr. Akhavan without reservation.

I literally refer everyone I know to Dr. Akhavan – Her and her amazing team somehow make going to the dentist something I look forward to? (I know, I also find this shocking). She is both gentle and thorough, explaining everything with care and detail so that you can make the best choices for you. Also, the music is great.

Dr Akhavan and her team are just amazing! I have been her patient for around 5 years now. Over the past 5 years I have changed my city and country of living at least twice, and I still prefer to book an appointment with her, fly or drive or take the train to NYC and make sure she takes care of my teeth. Azadeh is competent, goes above and beyond to make sure her patients get the best care, and refers you to the best specialists in NYC when something is outside of her scope of work. UPDATE: During the COVID pandemic she has texted me to remind me that my cleaning is overdue, and she knows that I can’t go to NYC, so has recommended I book an appointment in Boston with another dentist 🙂

Sophie T. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


This is by far the best dentist or even medical practitioner I have met. I had to have an emergency wisdom removal and went to another dentist office near work which over charged and did a terrible job, resulting in issues and complications. I was reluctant to find another doctor and spend more money (I do not have dental insurance!) but when I finally caved due to serious tooth pain I looked on zocdoc and found Dr. Akhavan who fit me in asap. Right away she knew the issue and was able to fix it with almost no pain. Because it took a few days to repair the gums she even came into the office on a weekend to do needed work, and also emailing me in the evening to check on how I was feeling. In addition, the office is so pleasant, with warm staff and receptionist, and they gave me a really fair and good price– definitely below what I should have paid. Dr Akhavan is such a intelligent, professional and kind person I almost look forward to going to the dentist now..She really cares about her patients and that’s why people have followed her to her new office on Fifth avenue.

Dr Akhavan is a wonderful person and dentist! She’s always well prepared and knowledgeable. Her office is small but well equipped with the latest tech in dentistry to help patients at the top level. Dr Akhavan also has an excellent bedside manner and very kind. I have been a patient for 8 years now and I can highly recommend her.

Lizbeth Mendoza (Source: Google)


Dr. Akhavan is one of a kind. I spent so many years going from dentist to dentist, not pleased at all by the experience and all. On my first dentist appt with Dr. Akhavan I was a bit hesitant because I didn’t know if it would be another bad experience. As soon as I walked through the doors, her staff was welcoming so friendly and very helpful and then I met Dr. Akhavan; she was so thorough, she asked questions, took her time with me, never felt rushed but well taken care of. She is incredible and I am so happy I’ve found her.

I literally look forward to going to the dentist. Dr. Akhavan and her staff are kind, compassionate, empathetic, gentle, and extremely comprehensive in explaining what is happening with your teeth. They show you exactly where any of your problem spots might be and how to best care for them, point out what you’re doing well in your oral hygiene, take time with you to make sure you fully understand it, and are all-around lovely people! They even let you choose your music during your cleaning (if you want). I have recommended them to so many friends. I have had ZERO moments of pain or even discomfort at any of my visits. I wish I could give 6 stars.

I’ve been going to Dr. Akhavan for about 3 years or so. She’s simply the best. I’ve been to a lot of dentists and she has a great balance of qualities I look for. She’s very pleasant to talk to and where other dentists feel like they’re wrestling with your mouth, Dr. Akhavan has a light, but precise touch, making cleanings a pleasant experience. She also takes the time to explain what she’s doing, why she’s doing it and walks you through her process. I’ve never felt rushed or ignored going to her and I’ve refered my family and friends to her already. I have had very intense experiences at dentist’s offices and she is bar far the best I’ve been to. Technique, manners, timeliness, followup and any other metric. I don’t usually like writing reviews but I think it’s important to shine a light on people who are seriously good at their craft. She’s the real deal!

Dr. Akhavan is easily the best dentist I have ever been to. She is incredibly knowledgable and spends time explaining not only what she is doing but why and will give you all of your options without being pushy at all. She even does her own cleanings which I believe makes a huge difference in the quality of the cleaning, her knowledge of your teeth and also improves the patient/dentist relationship. Not only is Dr A smart and talented, she truly stands out as one of the warmest, friendliest, most easy to talk to people and will make going to the dentist feel like a total breeze. Her enthusiasm for her patients and for dentistry is evident and even contagious. I feel very comfortable in her hands and honestly couldnt recommend her more.

I have not been a patient of Dr. Akhavan for very long (only 2 visits, so far…) once I moved into the city I was looking for a local trustworthy dentist to help me take care of my dental needs. My brother and his fiancé recommended Dr. Akhavan to me and ever since I became a patient, it’s been all smiles on my face. (Pun intended, who doesn’t love showing off their improved white teeth). Though I have not been a patient of Dr. Akhavan for very long, that is sure to change. I am always treated with the greatest quality of care every time I walk through the door and I assure you that you will receive the same quality of care. If you would like a warm and friendly environment with incredible dental care provided then I highly recommend Dr. Akhavan to you. You’re teeth will get whiter, you will learn new and innovative ways to take care of your teeth and most importantly, you will not be disappointed.

I love Dr. Akhavan. She is the kindest, most thorough and yet most gentle dentist I have ever had. When I am in her care, I know that she will always do an excellent job. She takes your entire lifestyle into consideration, and always has on-point recommendations on reasonable changes you can make to prevent future problems. She is always integrating the latest technological tools into her practice, as well as adding the most current research to her wealth of knowledge. Besides all that, she is a wonderful human. Bravo to Dr. Akhavan and her excellent team!

Dr. Akhavan has to be one of the best dentists in New York City. I’ve seen about 20 dentists in my life and can say that I’ve never met anyone who comes as close to her level of expertise and honest interest in her patients. She performs the cleanings herself – which both lets me know she’s fully aware of my dental situation and gives me the time to voice all of my concerns.

Alessandro d'Ansembourg (Source: Google)


Dr. A, as she is called by her staff, is the best dentist currently practicing in Manhattan! She is always up to date regarding the best ways to take care of your smile. If you are looking for competence, quality, amazing bedside manners, and great music*, search no further! Dr. A is the Dr. you were looking for! * they even let you chose your own music!!!

Dmitry G. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


My experience with Dr. Akhavan has been nothing but positive. She takes great strides to be upfront and honest about my teeth, gums, and related areas. Her staff (Jocelyn & Margherita) is also incredibly patient & professional making the visit to the dentist less dreadful. I used to travel out of state for my dental appointments but I truly feel that I have found a great local dentist.

John S. from Norwalk, CT (Source: Yelp)


It is with great pleasure that I write this review for Dr. Azadeh Akhavan. She is the person solely responsible for me smiling confidently without using my hands to cover my teeth. I came to Dr. Akhavan because I had some problems with the results of my previous dentist’s work. After enduring 8 implants and dozen crowns, nothing was feeling or looking right. Dr. Akhavan did a thorough examination and found major problems such as residues of cements still under my gums, my bite was completely off, inferior molds and materials that were used also aesthetically lots to be corrected and there were still few issues that were causing traps for bacteria. It took about a year to correct everything, but throughout these sessions she was always helpful, always on time, very courteous, knowledgeable, great work ethics with a gentle touch and amazingly patient with all my questions. In few occasions, she also conducted extra research and consultations with other dentists and specialists to come up with best solution for me which it felt very assuring. For example, after my implants I had developed a great pain in my left jaw, although not her specialty, but Dr. Akhavan consulted with few specialists and came up with solutions that has worked and saved me from that awful pain that I had for more than 2 years. To me it is a matter of night and day how my teeth looked and felt before and after visiting Dr. Akhavan. I have recommended her to my colleagues at the office and everyone who has visited her feels and share my sentiments. I must also thank her very friendly and understanding staff. They went beyond their way to assist dealing and explaining my case to the insurance company.

Doctor Akhavan is a very professional and kind person. She was always very explicit with me about the procedure she is about to take, never pushed to sell and always told me about the different options I had if any. She also often does research about what is new out there and updates her recommendations and equipement to be current. I would definitely recommend her.

It was such pleasing experience going to Dr. Akhavan’s office. From checking-in and all the way to the end. I’m the typical type to get nervous at the dentist, however that was not the case here. More importantly, Dr. Akhavan was very helpful and took the time to explain everything to me. The assistant was also nice and caring throughout! Definitely recommend.

Have been a patient of Dr. Akhavan for two years. Her professional approach and that of her staff, Valerie and Jakima is of the highest quality. Recently completed an Invisalign regimen and the visits were on-time, efficient, and organized. They got me through the entire process in a more than timely fashion and the results are incredible. Would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Akhavan, Valerie, and Jakima for all your dental needs.

Julie G. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


visited many dentists in my lifetime, but Dr. Akhavan was the most patient and knowledgeable of them all. The office and staff are wonderful and Dr. Akhavan took her time to explain everything i need to know about my teeth, jaw, tongue etc. I did not even feel that I was getting my teeth cleaned because she is very gentle and she definitely has magic hands. She takes her work very seriously and does not push anything on you that you do not need. Prior to Dr. Akhavan I was told that I have a few cavities which turned out to be false. I totally trust her judgement and she cares about what is best for the patient and is very honest. Most importantly I left really feeling that my teeth and mouth are healthy. This is the last dentist I will ever see! Thank you doc!

R K. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


I had a crown pop off soon after moving to New York recently. I called a different dental clinic at first and just got a funny feeling after getting the run around about fees. I decided to cancel my appointment there and keep looking, and I was so lucky that I did! Margherita helped me get an appointment that fit into my work schedule and also explained how much it would cost if my insurance wouldn’t cover it but also that she thought she could get that part worked out.Dr. Akhavan went through all of my current & past X-rays with me to explain why I should really wear my night guard (the grinding effects show up in the X-rays at the roots of your teeth!!) and also helped adjust it so that it would be more comfortable (something my prior dentist didn’t offer to do…) She also re-cemented my crown and made sure it was seated correctly. A few weeks later, I managed to pop off a different crown (!!), and Margherita helped me get another appointment. I decided to get my biannual cleaning done at the same time, and Dr. Akhavan did a really careful exam to make sure that everything else looked okay. We all had a good laugh over my crown-loss tendencies, and I promised not to eat any more jelly beans. I really like how their office uses different communication methods (like Margherita is totally cool about helping schedule appointments & answering questions via email, which helps because I work in an open-plan office so calls are hard to take.) I also think it’s neat that I get so much time with the dentist herself – what a luxury!

I have been a patient of Dr. Akhavan since 2009 and she is, by far, my preferred health care provider. Shortly after I came to NYC I went to a different dentist who identified 4 cavities that needed attention. Not having had many issues in the past I was a bit surprised to learn of these many cavities without experiencing any discomfort so I went looking for a second opinion which is how I came across Dr. Akhavan while she was at her previous location at 57th street. During the first visit she did find only one spot that perhaps could have needed attention and was not at all concerned about the other three spots. Rather than immediately scheduling a filling she recommended that we simply watch it to see how it developed. As it turns out, that spot has yet to become a cavity and she continues to keep an eye on it many years later. Interpersonally you can immediately tell that she is a particularly caring dentist and takes her time to explain everything and ensure proper understanding. She is very gentle and conservative in her approach. Dr. Akhavan makes sure that you are satisfied and will have you come back as many times as needed until the issue is resolved and you are happy with the outcome. Undoubtedly, as long as I live in the metro area I will continue to go to see Dr. Akhavan for my dental needs as I have the certainty that she has my best interests in mind. I cannot recommend her highly enough and you can find her at her new location at 8 Gramercy Park S.

Best dental experience of my life! I’ve always had some anxiety visiting the dentist, but Dr. Akhavan and her staff made my entire experience exteremely enjoyable. I was able to easily schedule the appointment and got text message reminders, reminding me of the time and location of the practice. Once at the practice, I waited approximately 10 minutes before Dr. Akhavan. I cannot stress how great of a dental experience this was for me (maybe because I didn’t have any cavities??). The music was pleasant, conversation was just the right amount, and Dr. Akhavan and her staff paid attention to me and made sure that I was comfortable throughout the experience. While doing the examination and cleaning, Dr. Akhavan was very informative and talked me through what she was doing. Dr. Akhavan also used this super cool tool to map my teeth in 3D and gave me a great bag of swag! I’m looking forward to returning in six months and seeing how my dental hygiene improved.

By far the best dentist I have ever been to. Dr. Akhavan is so meticulous and caring I finally actually enjoy going to the dentist. I had a few issues and she sorted them all out over a period of a couple of months. Now, most of my office goes to her as well – they all love her too! You can’t find anyone better at her job or more caring of her patients. Incredible. I wish I could give 10 stars!!!!

Dr. Akhavan is an awesome dentist! Initially, I was nervous about doing an implant with her, as I’ve previously had a bad experience elsewhere. However, Dr. Akhavan not only explained the process, she also provided important background info on the two periodontists she works with, so I could make an informed decision, as to who I wanted to do the procedure. I’m grateful to be given an informed choice based on the values most critical to me. After the implant, my teeth needed some tricky delicate adjustment. Rather than risking the chance my adjustment may not be a perfect fit, she made sure to connect me with a specialist that could make these types of adjustments precisely, at no added cost to me. So if you need an implant, rest assured, you’re in good hands with Dr. Akhavan. She truly cares and puts the needs of her clients first. I have complete faith in her. I’ve been a loyal customer for 5 years and counting.

Dr. Azadeh Akhavan took care of my teeth like nobody did it before. She is very professional, she knew to put me in confidence, and she is really soft in her gestures during the medical act. I think she brought me everything I could hope for from a doctor. She is high quality health care. Just want to say thank you.

I feel so LUCKY that my wife and I have found this practice. I feel like our family has found an home for our dental health! Dr. Akhavan and Jakima Brown are an EXCELLENT team. I’m looking forward to my next appointments so much! (Who can say THAT about going to the Dentist????) The pricing is very fair, the attention to comfort and the patient’s needs both immediately and to the future are beyond incredible. I can’t say enough!

Dr Akhavan was recommended to me by an oral surgeon. She is the best dentist I have ever seen and I’ve seen a lot! I thought that because of the location that the costs would be prohibitively expensive but, that turned out not to be the case at all. My dental needs are complicated due to lack of attention as a child and Dr Akhavan knows how to handle it all. She explains options and plans of care thoroughly and is up to date on new and improved technological developments in dentistry. She and Jakima Brown, Dental Assistant are an amazingly kind and caring team, always welcoming questions or concerns. I rarely write reviews for anything, but this dentist and her team are exceptionally outstanding. Go see them, you won’t regret it!

I have been going to Dr. Akhavan for many years. She has been one of the best dentists I have had and I haven’t switched ever since! She identified a fracture that many dentists missed or misdiagnosed as a cavity before. She put a crown that fixed this problem that bothered me for a year! I’m thankful I went to her for a second opinion and I don’t have to get a filling and still not fix the fracture issue
