The Best Dentist I have Ever Visited! I really can’t say enough good things about him. He and his staff are friendly, courteous, professional, and competent. Dr. Behbahani and his staff are always concerned to make sure that patients understand exactly what is going on with their teeth and gums, and he is very gentle.  Treatment plans are easy to understand and upfront about any cost, if any, outside of insurance.  The entire office is clean, comfortable and family oriented.

Every last person working in this office genuinely cares about what they’re doing and who they’re doing it for. I have never had such a pleasant experience in a dental office before. Extremely caring staff that is willing to go out of their way to make sure you’re comfortable and well taken care of. Awesomeness all the way around!

I was looking for dentist that could help with receding gums without having to do gum grafting. Dr. B was genuinely amazing, and now my gums are completely normal! The pinhole surgery is a must for people struggling with that. I make the drive from Flagstaff just to go to Central Valley Dentistry! Now, my entire family goes there! Also, I recently had the Smooth Lase done through Dr. B. OMG my face looks absolutely amazing!! He and his staff are so kind and genuine! I highly recommend them!! Your smile is everything! Trust it with the best!

I came in as a new patient after avoiding the dentist for quite some time. I have never had a experience like I had with Central Valley Dentistry. They’re very accommodating and caring. I get a little anxious before going into any dentist office but they made me feel so comfortable right off the bat and every person I interacted with was really friendly and it shows they actually care about their patients. I’ve been raving about how amazing my first appointment was with everyone. I can definitely say they’ve earned a patient for life.

This is the best dental office in metro Phoenix. The staff is always kind and helpful, even with a sense of humor. I have moved to the other side of town and still commute to see Dr. B. They use modern technology and the facility is always spotless. If you’re looking for a dentist, look no further. You won’t find any better than this team.

Oli N. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Came in to get my front teeth reshaped from years of grinding them while I sleep. Wish I’d done this years ago! My smile looks amazing now and the procedure was painless and fast. The staff are amazingly friendly and inviting. Holly at the front desk gave me a short tour of their amenities and cool new machine, while Tran helped me get settled in for xrays. Both girls were so professional and kind, as was the dr himself who gave me some practical advice on what my teeth would need going forward. Highly recommended this place especially if you dont like going to sullen, tense dental visits.

Dr. Babak Behbahani is one of the most professional dentist I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. His knowledge and wisdom of his craft is next to none. His staff is courteous and very helpful. The environment is very relaxing and comfortable. They even have Netflix in the chairs for you to watch while you wait. This gentleman runs a very neat, clean, and professional operation. I would recommend him and his staff to anyone. Thank you Dr. Behbahani for your caring dedication to all your patients.

This office and their entire staff are amazing. I HATE going to the dentist and I could not have had a better experience here. They give you blankets, headphones, tv to distract you, as well as spend time to get to know you. They took their time, answered all my questions and were very gentle. There was no up-selling or push for unnecessary procedures. I cannot recommend them more. Go here if you are looking for a fantastic experience.

Oh my goodness! Dr. Babak Behbahani had mentioned the appearance of my front two teeth in an earlier appointment, and today he smoothed them for me. They look SO GOOD! I would have never known to ask for the procedure but am so glad he did it. In addition, the office staff was perfectly kind and professional as always and my dental hygienist was INCREDIBLE. I unfortunately can not recall her name but she gave me the most considerate cleaning I had ever had. She took so much time and care with my teeth and I really appreciated her! I have been to many other dentist offices before and this is by far the BEST one yet. I highly recommend them to anyone I know !

Linds S. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I just got my teeth cleaned at Central Valley Dentistry and they did an amazing job!  The staff are very friendly and very accommodating and took care of all my needs. Trista my hygienist was awesome!!! She answered all my questions and  did an outstanding job on cleaning my teeth!!! I highly recommend Central  Valley Dentistry!!!  Thanks again for making me feel completely comfortable and relaxed!!! I can’t wait to go back for my 6 week checkup and see the progress in taking care of my teeth!!

Cathey A. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I Really like this Dentist office. They treat you like family and they offer a program for people who are self pay. And they offer referral incentives. And there prices are affordable. And they make their own crowns in office. If you choose them tell them I sent you and I can have a discount on my next cleaning.  My name is Cathey Allen. Thank you if you do use my name.

I have been using Central Valley dentistry for over 5yrs now and Dr. Behbahani and his team are excellent. The staff is always friendly and professional. I had my wisdom teeth removed I think it was a 3hr procedure and have nothing but respect and admiration for the team and how everyone was willing to help and check in with me to make sure I was doing ok. They always go above and beyond to make sure that you are comfortable and your needs are met on all visit. Thanks team! Keep up the great work. I highly recommend.

Mary B. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


The entire staff is very professional, fun and friendly.  Dr. B. is the best.  He completed my pin hole surgery and my gums look great.  Anna, Candace, and Trista are so kind and always treat me as if I am their sister.  My teeth are beautiful because they are a great team.  P.S., they even remember to bring me a blanket because I get cold sometimes.  My grand daughters, daughter, son-in-law, hubby and I are Dr. B.’s patients. He’s the best.

First time patient here. Everyone was super nice. I got good info on my dental situation. They set up a plan for care to get me back on track. Probably the most transparent billing I’ve ever seen in my life, not only in a drs office but anywhere really. The Dr didn’t play around but was also very personable. Good stuff all around.

Jeff E. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. B for over a year now and have found my ‘dentist for life’ or as long as he continues to practice!   My previous dentist had referred me to a periodontist for some serious gum recession.  The same periodontist performed the old school surgery twice on the same area within a two year timeframe without success either time.  A second periodontist performed a third surgery on the same area without success.  I started going to Dr. B based on a referral not expecting anything more than services I always received from dentists in the past….checkup, teeth cleaning, etc.  When I met Dr. B for the first time he observed my recession issues and I explained my past periodontal experiences.  He suggested the pinhole procedure as an alternative to the old school periodontal surgery.  And to my surprise, he performed the procedure himself.  Wow….my one stop shop for all of my oral needs!  The procedure was so much less invasive than the old school surgery and best of all, it worked!  I cannot say enough about Dr. B and his staff.  Amazing experience!  Thanks, Dr. B!  Jeff

I’m sitting in the waiting room at CVD, waiting for my son as he has an emergency root canal performed, and I’m impressed. The office is beautiful, clean, and quiet with just soft music and the tv on – and there’s kuerig coffee!!! And the front desk woman has the most inviting personality! I would definitely recommend Central Valley Dentistry to anyone looking for a dentist in the area!

Anna Z. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


This is by far the best dentist I have ever been to. After moving to Arizona, the dentist I previously went to was awful and has left me with anxiety when it comes to going to the dentist. However, Central Valley Dentistry does a fantastic job, and it’s clear they genuinely care about the patient. They explain everything they do and walk you through the process, making you feel comfortable the entire time. They answer all of my questions and explain in detail what everything means. I feel so comfortable going here, and I’m so happy I found this office!

Megan G. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. B went above and beyond for me. When I first came to Central Valley Dentistry I hated my teeth and was so embarassed to smile. He gave me all of my available options and worked with me to find one that was affordable and effective. He stayed after hours to make sure everything was perfect and he was kind and personable and never made me feel like an inconvenience. I’m so grateful for the time and effort you put into my teeth and they look absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much for being so great at what you do!

It was the longest period of time between dental cleanings, ever. Trista did a caring thorough job. After discovering cavities under 20 odd year old crowns, Dr B was able to clean up the decay and create 2 new custom porcelain crowns in a matter of a couple of hours! (refitting them perfectly)It’s not about simply having the most advanced dental technology. Dr B has a gift for diagnosing and prioritizing the most effective distinctive treatment. This patient is so very thankful for the entire office’s professionalism.

Georgia B. from Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Doctor B and his staff have blown me away once again by far exceeding my expectations! I went in for a new crown and a couple of cavities which were done painlessly and professionally. When Doctor B was finished, he asked me, “do you mind if I work on your front teeth a bit so they they are more even?” (grinding them down). At no additional charge, he worked away at making my smile a better one and without charging me a cent more. Thank you DoctorB!! You will be my forever dentist.

Skip O. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Babak Behbahani ( His name is to hard to say, We all call him Dr. B ) I have been going to Dr. B for many years. I ‘m 63 year older man and Dr. B has been taking care of my mouth for years. When asked when I go out people compliment me on what a great smile and white teeth i have. Thanks to Dr. B. The doctor also does laser, so with my age I had red vein lines on my face, The Doctor did laser on those veins and now they are gone. Took 10 years off the look of my face. If you need a great Doctor he is the man. His office is all high tech equipment, you can go in and in 1 hour have a crown replaced. Not wait 2 weeks to get fixed like other places. You got a (10) STAR from me.

Heather Ruiz (Source: Facebook)


Dr. B and staff are great. They make you feel at ease and as if you have known them forever. I would highly reccoment you contatc them if you are in need of a Dentist. If you have another Dentist already I guarantee you they are not great like Dr. B so you should switch and go to him instead. You won’t regret the change.

The staff is friendly their rates are fair and they text me with notifications about my appointments, what is their not to like. It’s very professional and down the street from my house. They do an amazing job and they don’t try to sell you something you don’t need. They are fair and would highly recommend them to friends and family or anyone reading this.

This was my first visit to Central Valley Dentistry. From the moment I walked in the door it was a fabulous experience Michaela was wonderful and had the best personality. Judith was my hygienist and was pleasant and made the appointment very positive. Dr B is outgoing and personable. I am definitely going back to this office.

Marsa E. from Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I would like to thank Dr. behbahani and his staff for providing such a pleasurable experience at his dental clinic. Everything was just more than perfect. I’m very sensitive to pain but I felt nothing during my visit and I was very comfortable. Dr. Behbahani and his staff are truly professional and considerate, so helpful and take great care of their patients. I would recommend Central Valley dentistry and Dr. Behbahani to all those wanting to receive dental care.

So I landed on Central Valley Dentistry because of the local reviews and I was NOT disappointed. It was my first visit and was asked multiple times if I was comfortable and if I needed anything. Also was very impressed at the pre visit questions to ascertain whether fear or budget or other items would get in the way of my dental needs making me feel as if they could tailor the experience to make me comfortable. Literally everyone I met was wonderful. The receptionist gave me a tour (what?!). Tran (I think?) was welcoming and made quick easy work of the intro and imaging. The hygienist was knowledgeable, detailed, and kind. Dr. B is super nice and very modern and up to date with technology, even excited to show me one of the toys during my exam. He was also very thorough and honest which for me is a top factor. Last but def not least Judy the office manager was an absolute DELIGHT and it did not hurt that the total bill was far below expectations. Weirdly excited for my new Dentist office of choice.

Sayyed Ourmazd M. from South Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


My experience with Dr. Behbahani and Central Valley dentistry has been extraordinary. The staff are friendly and professional and create a calm and relaxing environment. Dr. Behbahani is truly experienced and utilizes the newest and most advanced technology to meet the needs of all patients. He is fully aware of the fear many patients experience in dental offices and assists patients in overcoming them. He truly goes above and beyond and cares for all his patients. Prior to my appointment, I was facing severe tooth pain. Dr. Behbahani opened his schedule for me and through a root canal, took my pain away. My experience was truly unique and I would recommend Dr. Behbahani and Central Valley dentistry to all.

Stephanie S. from Prescott Valley Units, Prescott Valley, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I have moved around a lot over the last several years and have had dental work in multiple different states (with some pretty bad experiences I might add, before and after coming here). I had a root canal done here by Dr. B a few years ago and hands down this was the best experience I have ever had at a dentist. They gave me earphones with calming music to listen to the whole time which I really liked so I didn’t have to hear the noise of all the tools, etc. I really appreciated all of the kindness of all the staff during my experience here. If I still lived in central Phoenix I would continue to go here!

I love Central Valley Dentistry!!! I’ve been coming here for over 6 years. The staff is friendly and helpful, the office is large and clean, scheduling is easy, and for those who are worried about COVID-19, they require masks and hand sanitation on entry, and they are masked and gowned to the max and sanitize everything a lot. I’ll keep coming here!

Zohreh D. from Tempe, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Really had an amazing experience at Central Valley Dentistry. I am so happy that I finally found a great dentist for our family. My husband and I really like our new hygienist and dentist. Everyone is accommodating and friendly in Central Valley Dentistry. Doctor B and his staff made us feel so at home right away and not pressured. We had really bad experiences with other dentist in the past and I’m so glad that we found a dentist we can trust.

Mary M. from Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I have had the dentist from hell, who ruined my bite. I have had the dentist from purgatory, who couldn’t be bothered to petition my insurance company for permission to fix it. And now I have the heavenly staff at CVD, who not only fixed my bite but did it with care and thoughtfulness. I have never before (many, many decades) experienced so much teamwork in a dental office–and been treated as a member of that team myself. You simply cannot do better than Dr. B. and Central Valley Dentistry.

I have been going to Central Valley Dentistry for more than 5 years now. From a simple cleaning to an implant… You name the procedure, and I have had it done at this location with absolute satisfaction. (procedures such as Cleaning, Filling, Extraction, Root Canal, Crown, Implant, Bone graft, Cosmetic, and so on. Yes, I’m a good case, when it comes to my teeth). Dr. B saved anterior teeth that I was told I must extract. Not to mention that when you visit CentralValley Dentistry you will be treated with the latest technology available in this field which saves you lots of time and money. Staffs are all professional and super friendly, and willing to go above and beyond to help you and make your visit smoother. I feel Phoenicians must know about this great practice out there. Kudos to the Central Valley Dentistry team for being The Superiors in this field.

If you are looking for an experienced, kind, caring, professional dentist and hygienists and dental techs that are top notch you’ve come to the right place! Look no further! Top notch customer service with lots of State of the Art technology meaning they can do a root canal and get the permanent crown done the same day! I would Not go anywhere else! Great customer referral bonus too!! For folks who traditionally don’t like going to the dentist this Is the place to go!! I give it 10 ⭐️ stars!!

Had a toothache that needed to be addressed. Was looking at various dentists to see what services they do and their reviews. I called central valley to see what options I had. They took a couple of Xrays and told me what could be done. It boiled down to either a root canal/crown or implant. Dr. B was very patient, straight forward and honest. I was very scared and indecisive and needed to talk to family about it. Judy especially was very friendly, patient and precise in how each process goes, the payment options and how the insurance works. I went home to talk to family and finally decided to go with the implant. I called back and was told I could get in next Tuesday but also was put on a ASAP list. I was then called back within 10 minutes to be able to get an appointment tomorrow at 7am. I am so grateful because I want to get this dealt with before I start up at work. I want to give a shout out to everyone for their patience, caring, and honesty with me. I’m scared as heck about the implant and hope it goes smoothly. I will definitely be posting about how that goes. Thank you Dr. B, Judy and the team at Central Valley Dental.

I just had to go back for check ups . The Dr. Behbahani and his Staff were more gracious than ever and they did take care of me like a Champ. I have nothing to say but the best professionalism that you don’t usually find out there and I had to fly all the to Phoenix just for my follow up which was worth every bit to me . Thanks Dr. for all you have done for me . Love you all !!!!!

We take a modern approach to dentistry by utilizing the most current and up-to-date technologies such as the ability to provide the patient with a custom made crown in less than 2 hours. These crowns are a great improvement over traditional crowns in which an impression had to first be taken, the patient was fitted with a temporary, and then had to wait for the permanent crown to come back from the lab. Not only are these crowns created in a much shorter period of time the results are superior in aesthetics and bonding. Dr. Behbahani grew up in phoenix. He attended Arizona State University where he received his Bachelor in Biology as a cum laude graduate with honors. He received his degree in Doctor of Dental Medicine from Oregon. During his training, Dr. Behbahani served in rural areas of Oregon providing oral care for under privileged families. Dr. B completed a post graduate implant residency through White Cap Institute, and has since completed several hours in postgraduate courses in root canal procedure and surgical procedures including wisdom teeth extractions and implant dentistry. Dr. B uses advanced equipment including digital imaging and Cerec CAD/CAM technology to deliver great aesthetic work while maintaining patient's comfort and satisfaction as his number one priority.
