Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Jason K. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


I’d moved to Philadelphia late last year and it was an easy decision to check out Dentistry For Life, given their amount of 5 star reviews. After a few appointments in, I can confidently say that they their rating is 100% justified. Every single point of interaction with them – scheduling, communication, the appointment itself, reminders, etc. – is top-notch and I can’t really think of anything that they can improve upon. All of the staff are extremely friendly and it’s always a pleasure talking to any of them. I’ve generally been apprehensive about visiting the dentist in the past, but I don’t feel any of that here. Lastly, to make things more relevant for COVID-19 times, they’re taking precautions very seriously and I feel that everyone’s safety is their top priority. And again, I still don’t feel any worries because of how well they’re handling this. I honestly don’t see myself ever wanting/needing to go to another dentist. And you probably won’t either if you decide to give them a try.

Had the most amazing and wonderful experience and outcome. I needed so much dental work done and researched places for 3 years before coming here to Dentistry for Life. Best choice I made and highly recommend them. Very clean facility, professional and comforting. I feel they really listen and addressed my needs and treated me like family. Wonderful place!!!

Kate M. from Arlington, VA (Source: Yelp)


I can’t say enough good things about this practice. Dr. Parikh and his staff, especially Ashley, are vey kind and compassionate in addition to being super competent. They treat their patients with respect and actually make going to the dentist a pleasant experience. I have had a lot of dentists and I wish that I had found this practice years ago. I  highly recommend this practice. Don’t put off treatment. Call and make an appointment today.

Nikki B. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Had a great experience. Initial exam and x-ray on the first visit was easy and pleasant. Staff is very nice. Was informed and explained about each procedure in detail by the staff and the doctor. Second visit had 2 teeth extracted and was very surprised   how quick and painless it was. Already scheduled a follow up and also will be going back for a cleaning. Great place overall, and would recommend to anyone..

I hadn’t been to the dentist in close to six years – like many people, I’m not crazy about going to the dentist. Dentistry for Life has definitely changed that perception. The office is clean, tidy, and welcoming. The front desk staff were kind and welcoming and made the entire experience stress-free from the start. The dental hygienist, Angela, was one of the sweetest women I have ever dealt with. She made teeth cleaning feel like another day at the spa. The dentist was professional and courteous. I would highly recommend this place to anyone and everyone! Thank you Dentistry for Life!

Johanna M. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Love it here. They all make you feel so welcome and so comfortable. The the entire staff is one big family, and they treat you the same! My very first time going to Dentistry For Life, I walked in so afraid and left out at ease. Everyone there is so amazing. They’re quick & they’re efficient. I’m currently in the process of getting veneers. Today, I got my temporary veneers done and I love them. They gave me the confidence I’ve been longing for and I’m so grateful. I’m definitely looking forward to the permanents!! 10 out of 10. Highly recommend

The whole staff at Dentistry for life is PHENOMENAL!!! I needed a lot of work done, but Dr. Parikh masterfully handled the work, in an impressive time. The results speak for themselves. My confidence in my smile has returned!!! Highly recommend to anyone, whether you have insurance or not, they truly try and work with you to get you the care needed.

David Casamassa (Source: Google)


Had my first visit at the office today and came away super impressed. The environment was comfortable and the service was incredible. All of this blew me away but what left me most impressed was the level of communication from the Doctor as well as the rest of the team! Every single detail was communicated to me in as clear a way as possible and all questions were answered in a direct and honest way. Could not ask for more from my experience!

DeShawn Bowens (Source: Google)


My experience at Dentistry for life was great! Each time I’ve gone in to get work done it’s been a wonderful experience! They are really great at making you feel very comfortable and at ease. Very friendly environment! Everyone is very nice. Very safe when it comes to Covid restrictions. Very positive experiences here!

Lawrence R. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Dr.Parikh is an artist when it comes to dental work. It’s refreshing to see someone so dedicated to their craft. Their office staff is so friendly and welcoming it actually makes it a pleasure to visit the dentist. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a top quality dentist to maintain great dental health and get exceptional service

Ashley B. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


This office deserves more than 5 stars! It is centrally located and clean, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing on the inside. The staff and the hygienists are personable and professional and do a great job. During my most recent visit, my hygienist Angela gave me an awesome cleaning and addressed all my concerns. Doctor Patel and Doctor Kunal are absolutely incredible. Their bedside manner is unparalleled. They are excellent at what they do and their respective expertise in oral health and aesthetics makes for a wonderful team. They their patients first, and will always make time to schedule you for an appointment. The first time I saw them, I called the day-of with an urgent concern, and they saw me the next afternoon. Top-notch practice for anyone seeking a new dentist with outstanding results.

Paulette K. from West Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


It started when I lost a crown. I couldn’t find the number to a dentist I went to in the past so I went on my insurance site to see who was in my network and close to my job and apartment. I found Dentistry for Life and called them because of the 5-star reviews. If you are afraid of dentists poking around in your mouth with sharp metal objects, don’t be. Heather, the hygienist was gentle and thorough. I could tell the difference when she finished. Usually, during that kind of procedure, there’s pain and when I rinse there’s blood. Not this time. And during the same appointment, I was able to get 2 cavities filled and was back to work on time. I highly recommend them to anyone who is afraid of going to the dentist.

Juanito O. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Juanito Peter Olivo Visited the office on 7 Nov 2019 25 years since I’ve seen a dentist so naturally I had concerns and questions on my Dental Plan and how Dentistry for Life will handle my dental needs. They treated me with upmost respect and explain step by step what I needed and how they would like to proceed, with my approval, to improve my dental health. I left the office with confidence that I am in good hands. Never thought I would say this about a Dentist but I look forward to returning to continue my dental needs.

Andrew H. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


What an excellent, professional practice this is, and I would recommend to anyone in the Philadelphia area! The courtesy call the night before welcoming to the practice from Dr. Parikh was so thoughtful, and Dr. Patel was incredibly knowledgeable, relatable, and really spent the time to get to know me and my dental history. The office itself is beautiful and welcoming, and the staff are all lovely and very helpful. If there was a 6th star on Yelp, I’d add it.

Pauline Wong (Source: Facebook)


The entire team at Dentistry for Life is always professional and always puts me at ease for whatever dental work I’m having. All work is thoroughly explained with plenty of time for questions. The office is clean and inviting and all mandated protocols are followed.

Katrina G. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


Going to the dentist isn’t fun, but Dentistry for Life makes it enjoyable. Easily the best dentist experience I have had. I had some tooth pain so I called their office after seeing the great reviews online. They were able to get me in for an appointment that same week. I had a routine cleaning and x-rays done. The hygienists (Ashley and Heather) are so kind and professional, and made sure I felt comfortable during both of my appointments. Dr. Parikh came to look at my teeth after my cleaning and he was very friendly and knowledgeable. He was even able to take me in the following week for a follow up appointment. I never waited more than 5 minutes past my appointment time for either visit and the receptionist staff is so welcoming. It’s really helpful because I get nervous about going to the dentist. Dr. Parikh put on some music I liked to help me relax during my follow up procedures. He even took time to check my insurance coverage before doing some unplanned work. It was very thoughtful and I recommend Dentistry for Life to all of my friends and coworkers!

I recently relocated to Philadelphia and based on the great reviews visited Dentistry For Life last week. Everybody there is absolutely fantastic they didn’t rush me they put me at ease and answered all of my questions. They even scheduled my necessary dental work for two days after my first visit, are super professional and we’re gentle on my teeth. I can’t wait to see them again. I couldn’t possibly recommend Dentistry For Life more!!!

Dr KP is the man! Had an amazing experience and we are continuing working towards my goal of a healthy and cosmetically pleasing mouth. Everyone at the team of dentistry for life has been super helpful and we are so excited to continue the process. The temporary they put in to allow the implants to heal look incredible and are a placeholder that makes me really excited about the porcelain I’m getting. KP and the team are a very confident and very good team and i have all the confidence in the world in them. Thank you so much !

Kun-Hyoung K. from Center City West, Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


This team is 100% all around. No matter who works with you on a certain day, you’ll always receive a high standard of care and detail. Members of the Dentistry for Life team are friendly and comprehensive about explaining everything that needs to be done. It’s such a relaxing atmosphere and the team is so trustworthy, that you’ll feel at home even if you’re normally anxious about dental work. I’ve experienced cavity work, filling repair, cleaning, scaling… all of it was done efficiently and gently.

Stephanie L. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


The consistent 5 star ratings are for good reason! The doctors and staff are amazing. I haven’t always been great about going to the dentist consistently and have carried a pretty big fear of getting in the dentist chair. I was embarrassed that I haven’t always kept up my dental visits as I should. However, my first visit with them they put me at ease and didnt make me feel like a crazy person for my fears. They even talked to me about my fears! I mean, who does that? They did a full assessment and provided a care plan and options to make it happen. I am so relieved and very excited for what we have planned to perfect my smile. They have boosted my confidence and making sure that I show up every 6 months for my cleanings and regular care. I highly recommend this practice, every person I interacted with is caring, personable and kind. And in times of COVID, I was nervous. The office was immaculately clean, they are staggering patient appts and the staff is wearing face coverings and shields. They take their patients’ experience seriously.

I had a great experience getting my wisdom teeth removed! They have the best staff everyone (from the front desk to the Drs) is kind, experienced , friendly and professional at the same time! They patiently answered all my questions and they even followed up with a phone call after my procedure to check if I was doing okay! I highly recommend Dentistry for life!

Shameless mushy review alert! There aren’t words that can express how much I love Dentistry for Life. I was petrified of going to the dentist and put off going all the time. Until it was really effecting my life. Then I found Dentistry for Life. This team is amazing and that word doesn’t quite capture their awesomeness. They listen to their patients and consult with you. They talked me through my fears by explaining work needed, costs upfront, and making sure I feel supported and comfortable every step of the way. The transparency and care you experience in every way from scheduling, to claims and understanding costs, to the actual dental work (I had cleaning, wisdom tooth extraction, 2 implants, teeth whitening and bonding done) and the after care and follow up, is unprecedented. Dr Parikh and Dr Patel are the best…and can we talk #relationshipgoals ?! Every person in their employ, such a caring, capable wonderful crew. Love all I have come in contact with. I have no fear of going to the dentist anymore and won’t again. They gave me the confidence needed to take care of my smile AND a great smile again. Love, love, love them. Thank you. xoxo.

Researched a dentist who would be able to do the work I needed done on a schedule that works for me. In that I found Dentistry for Life! A true blessing to have found a local caring and compassionate practice focused on the patients needs and wishes. Pain is nonexistent in a sea of root canals and implants. Although the process is need complete, the “heavy lifting” was done and painless. I’ll have my smile and confidence back soon thanks to Dr. Parikh and Dr. Patel!! The whole staff is amazing!

Ben G. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


I read the reviews, follow them on social media, and believe the hype. I had dental implants and cosmetic veneers by Dr. Parikh & Patel,  they are the best. I have been to many dentist over the years, and I have never felt this comfortable. Dr. Parikh & Dr. Patel are very skilled, and work amazing together. Check out dentistry for life if you are looking for the best dentist in Philadelphia.

Alex D. from Perth, Canada (Source: Yelp)


I have a severe phobia when it comes to dentistry. Being the closest office to my home I decided to give Dentistry for Life a try. Dr. Rostami has recently taken over the office and provided amazing service. She was very patient and understanding of my fears. she never left my side and made sure to take things slowly and explain everything she was doing to me. I have never left a place feeling so pampered and having gotten such a good value for my money!

Teaira J. from Center City West, Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


I just want to thank all the staff at DFL they are beyond the best! The hygienist Angela is amazing and cleans your teeth to perfection. Dr Parikh is very calming I have always been scared to go to the dentist since my bad experience ( when I was 16) with local anesthesia, Dr. Parikh and Sarah talked me through the whole procedure of 4 feelings. The front staff is very welcoming and also contributed to my great experience. I highly recommend this practice for any one who my be afraid I promise you will leave feeling brave just like myself. *Update Alert!!!!! I had to get a root canal done which I was very scared I have very bad anxiety due to past experiences with out dental offices. I just want to thank Dr. Parikh and Sarah are the best they made my experience comfortable and once again I left with confidence knowing that I don’t have to ever fear the dentist again because I will only be coming to this practice.

B M. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


I want to thank all of the employees and dentist at this office. I felt very comfortable and was made to feel comfortable during a very complicated visit. They made me feel at home. I would definitely bring family, friends and anyone looking for a Dentist to this office. It took me a long time to find a dentist that I was comfortable with and now I found a dentist home. Thank you for the very caring and nurturing feeling.

Dentistry for Life is amazing! It’s a cozy atmosphere and everyone is attentive. Like many people, I find it a chore at best and a painful experience at worst, to visit any dentist. The speed, quality, and communication were so top notch that all anxiety flew out of the window. The staff made time on New Years Eve and they were easy to work with, issuing fair prices with comprehensive information and reasonable scheduling windows. In my visit, there was no pain and it felt more like being with an artist than with a medical professional. I’ll recommend this place to my friends and hope you sign up as a patient too!

This by far is the best dentist office I have ever been to. From my very first visit, I received warm welcomes from all staff! I went to other dentist offices for consultations on veneers but I knew right away that this would be my choice. I am overly satisfied with my results, I feel confident and more beautiful than ever. If your thinking about veneers look no other place but dentistry for life.

Eileen G. from East Lansdowne, PA (Source: Yelp)


I am so glad I found “Dentistry For Life”. My last visit was just like all the previous ones: professional and office staff are friendly, courteous, helpful. They are very knowledgeable, and don’t mind answering questions, or offerring advice. It may sound strange to say this about a Dentist visit, but it’s always a pleasure doing business with “Dentistry For Life”.

Great P. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Professionals from start to finish. Entire staff tries to make you feel like family—receptionist, billing/office manager, hygienists, dentists. Needed cavities filled, deep cleaning, tooth extraction and replacement. The professionals at Dentistry For Life explained the process: the procedures, the medical reasons, even the type of equipment and materials used! All my questions answered, procedures done to perfection. Rare to find a team made up entirely of super stars, and girl am I  lucky to have found it at Dentistry For Life! I salute all!

Joseph K. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Next level professionalism here. Dr. Parikh has been handling my situation. He is a total pro, took the time to explain my options thoroughly. Right from the jump you feel completely confident in his abilities and knowledge. The rest of the staff is outstanding, very friendly. Dr. Patel seems great as well. I talked to her for a bit as she stopped by the room I was in just to check in and say hello. The dental hygienist (sorry-I’m terrible at remembering names) was top notch. Five star cleaning. You can tell these doctors are committed to a vision for what excellence is in this field. Do yourself and the people you care about a favor and lock in Dentistry for Life as your dental team going forward. These doctors and their staff are the real deal.

Dentistry for life took the fear out of going to the dentist. It’s a calm tranquil atmosphere and the staff helps to make it a great experience. I’ve worked with Sarah and Megan and I must say their client service skills are impeccable. They both made me feel so comfortable it was almost like I wasn’t about to get a root canal. Overall I would defiantly recommend this place if you ever had fear of the dentist they will completely make it a great experience. Both of the doctors are awesome too.

Mehjabeen A. from Penn Valley, PA (Source: Yelp)


I would highly recommend Dentistry for Life. I was having extreme tooth pain and went a different dentist at first. The first dentist misdiagnosed the issue and overcharged me. Dr. Parikh at Dentistry for Life correctly diagnosed the tooth pain and was able to immediately address the issue. Dr. Parikh always listens and fully answers all of my questions. He always helps me feel at ease, and is always very understanding of any questions I have. Both Dr. Parikh and Dr. Patel are very nice and friendly. They always greet me in the waiting room, which is something my previous dentists have never done. The staff are also very helpful and always kind. I have full confidence in the abilities of Dentistry for Life.
