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

I am in agreement with everyone below. Dr. Parikh is by far the best dentist I have been to (and I have been to a lot of dentists since I have needed a lot of dental work over many years). She is great with patients, has a good attitude, and is very professional. I also like her excellent work and incredibly reasonable prices, and that I saved big $$$ on my dental work. I have recommended her to everyone I know. My mom was recently treated by her and also gives Dr. Parikh “5 stars.” Here are 50 other great reviews on Dr. Parikh demandforce.com/b/DrPari… (Yelp filtered my review…just want to say that in my case the filter is wrong)

Dr. Parikh is hands down the best dentist I’ve ever gone to! She is so gentle, and really takes note of sensitivity and any needs or wants one may have. I’ve never been a huge fan of going to the dentist, and typically have had bad/painful experiences (as I’m ultra sensitive to pain, and especially weary of needles on any kind.) I had several cavities that I didn’t have knowledge of, two of them very deep. Dr. Parikh gently gave me anesthesia, made sure I was fully numb, and even gave more throughout the drilling process as to make sure I really felt no discomfort with the deeper ones at all. She cleaned them all out, filled them precisely and made my teeth feel and look beautiful! Very gentle yet extremely precise with her work. The front office staff is also amazing and always goes above and beyond. I highly recommend this dental office to ANYONE who has extreme sensitivity, low pain tolerance, discomfort with dental work, or has had bad experiences in the past. Great experience, 10/10. Thank you Dr. Parikh for your understanding, gentle work/support, and amazing technique. Big thank you to the staff for always being so warm and accommodating!

I recently broke a molar.  Dr Parikh’s office was able to see me the next day to patch it up and two days later to fit me for a crown and put in a temp.  The crown was ready 10 days later and fit perfectly on the first try. Overall the best experience I’ve ever had with a crown.  Quick and painless with a really nice team.

When you see a 5 star review for a DENTIST, you know they have got to be awesome. I started going to Dipty last year, after I moved from NY, and have since performed several procedures in the hope of attaining tooth heaven. I have always had pretty shabby teeth, so I was not surprised I needed tons of work after I moved to the Bay. I completed 2 extractions, a cleaning, a root canal, a crown and a few fillings. I have a couple other extractions to go, and I will start the process for Invisalign (not over-sharing or anything…) Every procedure I have ever had there has been smooth. They are punctual, straight to the point, skilled and fast. I rarely feel any pain whatsoever during the procedures, and as long as I follow the care advice they give me, any pain afterwards is minimal as well. Just to tell you how much going there is fun, I agreed to a procedure on my BIRTHDAY this year. Yup. Dipty is honest, nice, funny and patient. I love her team, they are warm and super helpful. I have no desire of ever trying a new dentist, given that I remain in the Bay for a while. I highly recommend them

I really like Dr. Parikh, I find her personable and professional. I’ve been seeing her for about 2 years. She has filled several cavities for me, done a few cleanings and has managed my Invisalign process. I think the staff is very friendly and have never had any issue with not getting a call back or reschedule my appointment.

I DREAD going to the dentist, thanks to childhood memories of being given nitrous oxide and then having my teeth extracted by a cranky old orthodontist who didn’t even like kids. Not cool. Fast forward about 25 years and I have FINALLY found a dentist that I feel like I can trust. During my last dental visit at another establishment, I was given a long list of procedures that the Dr. recommended. Thankfully I didn’t have insurance at the time, so I didn’t opt for any of them. As a result, since it had been almost a year since that visit, I was expecting the same bad news, if not worse. I was pleasantly surprised and relieved when Dr. Parikh only noted on my x-rays two areas that she would watch, and nothing needed to be done at this time. YES! Finally, a dentist who’s not trying to rip me off! Dr. Parikh is my fourth dentist over the past 3 years, and she is BY FAR the best. Her office is cute and small. Very clean. She takes digital xrays too, which is also nice because you can see them yourself on the monitor while she points out any areas of interest. During my visit, it was just her and her assistant, and Dr. Parikh did my teeth cleaning and polishing herself. She was very gentle and meticulous; not like some other dentists who I feel like are stabbing my gums. I really like how her office is small and intimate. My previous experiences with dentists have been in larger practices, where the dentist goes from patient to patient, spending only a few minutes with each one. Also, Dr. Parikh has a very pleasant demeanor, and she is very communicative regarding what she is doing and what she observes. I would highly recommend Dr. Parikh to anyone!

I found this demist because she took my son insurance, was fairly close to home and when I look on yelp she had good reviews. Since then she has treated both my son and me (his mother) I have found the office is well run, demist is good, kind and thoughtful. Very pleased. (A great improvement from when I took my son to Western Dental where I had to wait 2 hour for a SCHEDUALED appointment , was told my son needed braces when he did not, told he would need his wisdom teeth out and he did not as he had plenty of room.)

I hate going to the dentist. I get anxious and I just don’t like people messing with my teeth! This was by far the best experience I’ve had at a dentist. I came in twice recently. First, it was for a cleaning and check up and the second was for my filling. Dr. Parikh and her staff were professional, friendly, and accommodating for both appointments. Absolutely, no pain during and after my filling. Thank you!

Dr. Dipty and her staff make going to the dentist a pleasant experience… She has a Unique way of taking the stress out of the exams and the procedures with a calm approach. Recently I experienced her new dental hygienist and they worked closely together and discussed the best care for my teeth which made feel confident I was in good care. I highly recommend Dr. Dipty.

Terry D. from Redwood City, CA (Source: Yelp)


I haven’t had any tooth problems in the past couple of years so I can’t attest to how those are handled but during examinations Dr. Parikh  is very gentle, caring, and friendly. Above all she’s honest. I mention that because I after being ripped off by my last two dentists, at this point it’s my top priority. She doesn’t try to upsell you services you don’t need which makes me feel that her patients are her top priority, not money. The office is very clean and the staff friendly and efficient. The only downside is there is no parking lot and the (parallel) parking around her office can get packed. However, there is a CVS just a block away if you get desperate.

Dr. Parikh and Mayra are amazing. I emailed to see if they were accepting new patients and received a same day response that yes they were. Mayra was patient with me when it came to scheduling my appointment and gave me several options to choose from. She also followed up with me a few days before to make sure the time was still good for me. The office was very clean and I really enjoyed the online new patient system – easy to use and efficient. Mayra did a great job with my x-rays and was so genuine and kind. Dr. Parikh was able to spot right away on my x-rays some trouble spots and explained to me how to take care of them. She was so kind and gentle the entire time and she made sure to check how I was doing while she did my cleaning. Overall I am so so happy I chose Dr. Parikh and I highly recommend her to anyone on the San Carlos area!

As someone who has horrible dental anxiety/fear, I definitely recommend coming here. Everyone here is very nice and accommodating. The office and rooms are very clean. Both Dr. Parikh and her specialist are nice and gentle and make sure you’re okay with everything they’re doing. I got three root canals in one day and it was the least stressful dental experience I’ve ever had. Highly recommend coming here.

I’m so glad I found this place, all the staff is very friendly, professional, and skillful. I scheduled my first appointment with them by phone and they were able to see me the following morning! I believe you can also schedule an appointment online if you prefer. Upon arrival, I just had to fill out a simple new patient questionnaire and provide my dental insurance info. Cleo was the receptionist that helped me, she is super friendly and helpful. Donna was my hygienist and handled the dental cleaning and checkup, super kind and skilled; my teeth felt so much better afterwards. Dr. Parikh did the final checkup after the cleaning, and was happy to answer all my questions very thoroughly and thoughtfully. Of course there are inherent risks to doing any dental work in covid times, but the entire office took good precautions — hand sanitizer, face masks (sometimes two!) always over the nose, and sterilized surfaces and tools. I will be coming here for all my dentistry work in the future.

I have been going to Dr. Dipty Parikh since 2010 when I first moved to San Carlos from the East Bay. She is, by far, the best dentist I’ve ever had. I’ve hated going to dentists due to a bad experience when I was a kid. But Dr. Parikh changed my view for the better. Why she’s absolutely fantastic and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: -gentle and compassionate, will help ease your dental fears -answer all your questions about dental hygiene. I asked her if getting a Waterpik water flosser is a good idea for someone who hates to floss. Answer: “Not if you don’t use it!” [good point!] She saved me some money on that and I now just use a Reach Access Flosser and floss regularly. -great front staff (she had some reception/front desk staffing problems before but that’s been fixed). As of this review date (4/2017) I’ve dealt with Myra and she’s been wonderful. -thorough cleaning done by dental hygienists -Dr. Parikh will still do a follow-up cleaning after her hygienist is done and will do a thorough inspection and point out any “trouble spots” -I’ve had to get a crown done for one of my molars and when the temporary crown broke & I called her office/answering service, she actually called me back and did an “emergency” repair for the temp crown. Now that’s excellent patient care! -has *limited* Saturday appointments (you’d need to book this well in advance) My daughter (who is now 5) had her first dental check up with Dr. Parikh. To highlight how gentle Dr. Parikh was/is with her, her favourite thing to do now is “play Dr. Parikh” (instead of playing dentist). I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Parikh. If it’s possible to give her 10 stars I would! She’s gentle yet thorough, kind and will ease any fears of dentists you may have had in the past. Her office may be bare-bones and no frills but having a fancy dental office isn’t an indicator of good, reliable & gentle dental care.

Dr. Parikh is great! So nice and efficient. She kept asking if she was hurting me and the hygienist apologized for those painful plastic things that they use to take the x-rays. As if the fact that those slaps are far too big to fit in anyone’s mouth without creating huge grooves in the roof of one’s mouth was her personal fault! The last dentist I went to put a camera in my mouth, showed me dots on my teeth and told me I had 9 cavities. As someone who actually flosses in addition to brushing slightly obsessively I was appalled. Dr. Parikh showed me the dots he was talking about and explained that they were simply discolorations to be watched NOT cavities to be filled. She recommended filling two cavities but made me feel like the decision was really up to me. Additionally, she is going to check with my insurance and email me an estimate before I have them filled so that I can make a more informed decision. Overall, great experience. Looking forward to going back!

Dr. Parikh is an extraordinary dentist! She spends a significant amount of time with each patient and is a dentist that treats you like an individual. Both her dental work and care are excellent and her attention to detail is truly beyond compare. My last dentist would do work on my mouth that was not necessary, just to make money. Dr. Parikh would never do that. She is a dentist with the highest of ethics. She is also a rare dentist in that she offers various ongoing discounts and since I don’t have insurance it really helps a lot. Her staff is also very courteous and knowledgeable. As far as dentists go, I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Parikh

Jennifer P. from Redwood City, CA (Source: Yelp)


I really like Dr.Parikh. I would have to say that the other reviewer summed it up…she is just a really nice, down to earth person. As a former dental assistant, I am really picky where I go. This office is clean and modern. There is no attempt to make you get unnecessary work. I love a dentist who is conservative, but thorough. Dr.Parikh is both! I highly recommend her.
