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

Farinaz J. from Aliso Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was introduced to Dr. Eslami through my son. She did a wonderful job fixing my crowns, re-doing my fillings, deep cleaning, and whitening. She is very polite and well informed with new techniques and procedures. Her office is very cozy and the massaging chairs are extremely comfortable, especially during long procedures. Her staff is also as wonderful and joyful as Dr. Eslami herself. I love the work that she did and I will be using her for my future dental work.

The staff at Downtown Dental Design are exceptional. From the receptionist, to the hygienists to Dr. Eslami, they are a great group of professionals. I’ve been a patient of Dr. Eslami for 20 years now, and would not EVER consider leaving her practice. I often joke that she’s the only dentist I’ve ever had where dental procedures are painless….and that’s saying a lot

I have been going to Dr Eslami since moving to Austin about 5 years ago. She and her staff are ALWAYS helpful, gentle and friendly! So much so that my son (now 13) also goes, feels at ease there & is never scared to go. She had to refer me to an oral surgeon for an implant (Dr Horne) and he, too, is amazing. I highly recommend her office to anyone in need of a dentist. New office is convenient & gorgeous!

When I started going to Dr. Eslami, I hadn’t had dental insurance in a few years, so my teeth and gums were not in the best shape. Now, after going to her for a couple years, my choppers are in tip-top. Dr. Eslami is a wonderful dentist. She has never made me feel bad about my teeth. She’s just nice and encouraging as are the hygienists and assistants. Dr. Eslami has done several replacement fillings and crowns for me. These are never pleasant but they do their best to make these as quick and painless as possible. One of the assistants even holds my hand during the really painful parts and tells me how long each part is going to take so I can mentally prepare for the pain. So sweet. Due to the health concerns regarding amalgam, Dr. Eslami doesn’t do amalgam crowns or fillings at all I think. So, if you need something done cheap, this is not the place. The cost of having less mercury in my mouth is worth it to me. Dr. Eslami even humors me regarding the cost and timing for procedures. She’ll say, “We may want to keep an eye on this one” and I say, “Will it hold until next year? I’m all out of FSA funds until January.” The staff has been equally helpful in convincing my insurance company to pay for the porcelain or gold crowns. I’ve still had to pay out of pocket for a good amount, but it feels really good to know that my teeth are well taken care of. I may even consider getting other cosmetic dentistry down the road: Invisilign or Veneers, which they offer at DDD also. The hygienist is also so sweet and sadly, now that my teeth are in better shape, we spend less and less time together.

I’ve been going to Downtown Dental Design for ~9 years now. Dr. Eslami is wonderful! She’s very knowledgeable and always listens if I have any concerns. Additionally, the entire team is professional and kind. It sort of feels like I’m entering a spa whenever I go – calming music, massage chairs, etc. I highly recommend making this your new dentist!

George C. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


Excellent service from the ladies at DDD. On a short visit to Austin, I had a broken tooth and they managed to fit me in at short notice and make the necessary repair. Everyone was very open and friendly. I wish I lived in Austin and could use them as my normal dentist! Lovely premises and free covered parking add to an excellent set up.

Anna M. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


After several years of eschewing dentistry, I stumbled into Dr. Eslami’s office in a very cowardly fashion. I have since been entirely won over by her endlessly cheerful staff and Dr. Eslami’s calm demeanor, which always takes my apprehension off guard. Her office staff is transparent regarding billing and spends a good deal of effort making sure that I am well-prepared and comfortable on each return. They have each variously supplied me with comforting words and chapstick. Dr. Eslami is the first dentist I have ever looked forward to seeing. I cannot recommend her more highly. I have thus far been very happy with the work she has done and the referrals she has made. Thank you!!!!

I’m having some corrective and cosmetic dentistry done simultaneously and the attention to detail and perfection is extraordinary. Everyone there is very professional while being personable at the same time. I highly recommend Downtown Dental Design. They are, hands down, the best in Austin.

I have nothing but great things to say about Downtown Dental! I have been going to this office for about 2 years and have experienced nothing but the best. Brenda at the front is so helpful and kind. Each dental hygienist is amazing, especially Alex Stover. She is very knowledgeable and truly cares about each of her patients. Dr. Eslami is wonderful and very thorough in her work. If you’re looking for an office, I highly recommend.

Ronnizia B. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Eslami is fabulous! She has a great manner and keeps up to date with the latest technologies. I have to admit that I am a complete sucker for the massage chairs and sirius radio. I love that I can get in out of her office quickly. She is located right off mopac at 6th street and her office has a free parking garage. Her staff are very friendly and get me in at the time that I am scheduled to be there. I highly recommend her!

Vanessa S. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


I went to the same dentist from age 2 to 20. When I made the final move to Austin, I have struggled to find a dentist that I can entrust with my teeth. I was so happy to find Dr. Negar Eslami when she worked at Rose Dental Group a few years back. When she left Rose, I was happy to follow her. The entire team at Downtown Dental Design is extremely professional and courteous. Her office is convenient to get to and parking is free, which is awesome especially when you work downtown. I never worry about missing my appointment because they send me a postcard reminder and do a follow up call. Plus, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the massaging exam chairs. Can’t say enough good things about this place.

I had a new hygienist named Alex this time, and she was equally as wonderful as Andrea. Very gentle yet efficient with my cleaning. She was kind and easy to get to know as well. From my front desk experience with Hillary all the way to my final examination with Dr. Eslami I felt safe and well taken care of. This is so important in light of the pandemic and how vulnerable one can feel without a mask on indoors. I have really enjoyed the way Downtown Dental Design helps me care for my teeth! My hygienist Andrea has always taken great care of me, and Dr. Eslami is very thorough and thoughtful as well. The office staff and space are wonderful, too!

G B. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


Just had 3 fillings done here in the last few weeks and had an exam/cleaning before that. What a super dentist! Dr. Eslami is very nice, extremely professional, and the entire staff seem like a real team. Everyone is very polits, apts were timely, and most of all both she and her assistant(s) were extremely attentive during all dental work regarding pain and making sure I was comfortable. I would strongly recommend this dentist to anyone looking for great service, and excellent dental work without being overdiagnosed, overtreated, or overcharged. Keep Austin’s Teeth Weird! 🙂

I have been a patient of Dr. Eslami’s since 2011. Her staff is wonderful, kind, friendly, and professional, and Dr. Eslami is incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and patient. Her bedside manner is excellent, and I recommend her to anyone needing orthodontic care in Austin.

Dr. Eslami is a great dentist. She is very calm and takes her time with you. Her office is beautiful and modern with very nice equipment. Her staff is also incredible, they are all very nice and professional. I have loved every hygienist and Hillary is so wonderful about working with you to schedule an appointment and dealing with insurance. I have recommended this office to many friends in search of a great dentist.

The office is conveniently located in 5th street. Office staff is very friendly and helpful. They provided information on my dental care prior to my visit. Hygienist provide step by step explanation of each process to put me at ease. This is helpful if you don’t like going to the dentist. The procedure chairs provide massage while you have your procedure and provide the latest is covid safety measures to put clients at ease while having procedures completed. Dr. Eslami was very informative and detailed on my treatment plan. Downtown Dental Design offers a broad range of services and many convenient ways to make appointments.

Evan B. from Cambridge, MA (Source: Yelp)


I needed a new dentist and asked 5 friends in Austin for a recommendation. They all recommended the same spot! This one. So I just went for my first appointment this week. It felt like I was at a spa in Europe. Beautifully decorated. Friendly staff. They had prepared all my documents ahead of time. Only asked me to fill out the minimal forms. Very friendly staff. Easy to park. Near downtown. Uses all the latest technology for X-rays and cleaning. Finally a dentist I love going to! If you are looking for a great dentist, go nowhere else.

Sarah M. from FL, FL (Source: Yelp)


Well where to start. I’ve never been one to enjoy going to the dentist, but Dr. Eslami changed all of that. First off, there is free parking! Great when you’re in a rush to find it. When you walk in I can’t help but feel comfortable. It’s modern and SOOO clean. The staff is always very friendly and fun. Starting with my first cleaning, I left feeling great! My hygienist did an amazing job. She was very informative and answered any questions I had. Im a sugar lover and hadn’t had a regular dentist in a while. Needless to say, I had some work that needed to be done. After my exam was complete Dr. Eslami broke everything down and we figured what was the best plan for me to take next. I wasn’t pressured to do anything that wasn’t necessary. You are reminded of your appointment with a friendly email, text, and phone call. I’m so happy I have Dr. Eslami as a dentist. Both her and her staff are wonderful people who I feel, honestly have the patients best interest at heart. I have found my forever dentist! Highly recommend.

Allison H. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


The team here is great. I’m sure I speak for most when I say the dentist is not my favorite destination. However, I left there this morning in a really good mood. Hilary at the front desk is very kind and Katie is the best hygienist ever! (Sorry, Mom. No really, I’m sorry). I’ve been going to Dr. Eslami for 3-4 years and I’ve never had a bad experience. No long wait times, great attitudes, warm environment. If you have to go to the dentist (and you should) go here!

Hannah Haro (Source: Google)


I’ve never felt so encouraged by my experience with a dental hygienist as I did at Downtown Dental Design. Alex was informative, kind, took lots of time to make sure I understood what was going on, and was really encouraging. I also appreciated the way she and Dr. Eslami took the time to break down the plan for work needed info manageable chunks.

I love this office—from Brenda at the front desk to Alex and the other hygienists with Dr Eslami in the treatment rooms. Thus far, I’ve been here for 2 dental cleanings, fit for and purchased a night guard, and had my front teeth “evened out” (not sure of the technical name for this). I am sad I didn’t find them when I moved here 6 years ago! You can’t go wrong putting your dental needs in their hands.

Carrie A. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


I went here on a recommendation and I have been nothing but pleased every time. They are fast, friendly, and professional. I went and got multiple very old fillings redone and, although I’ll probably never necessarily ENJOY going to the dentist, Dr. Eslami always made sure I was as comfortable as possible. If you need to go to a dentist you would have a hard time finding a better one!

Paul M. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


We have all heard the saying; ‘You get what you pay for’. I have been to see Dr. Negar Eslami four times over the last three months to have some ‘catch up’ work done and can honestly say that I am more impressed with the level of professionalism at this practice than any other I have attended in my life. I’m 41 years old. ‘Hilary’ is who’s friendly voice you will hear when you call in to set up your appointment. She will also be the person who calls you a couple of days prior to your appointment, and if you don’t pick up, (like me), she will send you a friendly email to remind you, and to confirm all is well. She’ll probably call you again on the day, just in case. What I like most of all however is the ‘service’. Over the three times I have visited Dr. Eslami, I have probably spent a total of 5-8 minutes in the ‘waiting’ room. Five of those were because I had to finish a business phone call. You walk in, they’re ready, and they know who you are. I felt like the whole place stopped just to welcome me. Up until my first visit, I had NEVER experienced painless dentistry. I had always dreaded going, and my teeth used to reflect that. Dr. Eslami has transformed my old cracked metal filled teeth into brand new looking ‘film star’ quality choppers…and to this day, PAINLESSLY. I recommend Downtown Dental Design 100% Go!

Pink P. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


This is the most beautiful, brand new, modern and updated dental office I have ever seen. It puts all the 80’s (or worse, 60’s) style dental offices to shame.  I went for the first time for a routine cleaning, at the recommendation of a friend, and did not experience any service issues. Everyone is very friendly, the dentist included. I’m sorry some people had bad experiences but I give it 5 stars based on my first visit. It is very hard to find a good dentist with a professional approach. I only have had the very best of impressions here, so far so good. Most impressive of all, I scrutinized the dental instruments and they were brand new and sparkling clean. Amazing. There isn’t even a speck of dust on the overhead lamps. UPDATE: four years later, I still give it 5 stars. I especially appreciate that they never upsell you on services you do not need, unlike some dishonest dentists I’ve had in the past.

Borna T. from Aliso Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


I live in Southern California and travel to Austin for business frequently. My 2009 New Year resolution was fixing my teeth and getting the “Hollywood teeth” I always wanted. Having spoken to dentists from San Diego to LA to Austin, Dr. Eslami was the only doctor who was confident enough to give me what I wanted. She was also the only doctors who “I” felt comfortable working on my teeth (I have dental phobia). It is very important to me that my doctors take their time in understanding what I am looking for and explaining every step and detail of the procedure; Dr. Eslami undoubtedly fitted in that category. After 5 sessions, I look like a new man. She has worked a miracle and has done a wonderful job with my teeth (fillings, crowns, veneers, etc.) I recommend her 100%. Plus, she has an amazing office, right off the freeway (Mopac and 6th St.), with the latest technologies such as massaging chairs and TVs in each room.

I’ve been a patient here for several years. Even when I lived across town, I would not consider switching dentists. The good ones are hard to find and after one bad experience with another Austin dentist, it is not a risk I’m willing to take again. Everyone at Downtown Dental is friendly. I feel like I’m going to visit old friends the 2X a year I visit. The music is great and calming. The chairs that patients sit in massage you while you have your teeth cleaned. You get a goodie bag with floss, a toothbrush every time you leave. I love it and you will too!

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Elslami’s since 2006 when she shared an office in Hartland Plaza. At first, I felt sorry for her because she had a minimal files on the shelf compared to the other dentist. However, over the years her attention to detail, quality of care, and great personality have made her an easy referral for numerous friends. Obviously, this is a common sentiment as she has her own office and is a rock star. Look no further!

Had a super good experience here and would highly recommend Dr. Eslami to anyone. She’s a really nice person, very professional, offers a 10% discount to people like me that don’t have dental coverage, and has a great staff who all seem to get along great. Most importantly, after a filling I needed my bite adjusted a week later because it felt a tiny bit off and she quickly, happily reshaped it for me in 3 minutes. I strongly recommend this office, let’s keep supporting our great local health practitioners who treat their patients with dignity, fairness, and professionalism. You don’t need to worry about being overdiagnosed and overtreated here – at no point did I feel like my teeth were being treated like a gold mine!

I have been going to Dr. Negar for several years. Not only is she very personable but her staff offers the best customer service a person could ask for. Hillary, the front office manager always remembers my name and makes me feel like one of the family when I am there. My teeth have never looked better and I hope to be able to stay with Dr. Negar for many years to come
