Ignore the negative reviews! I am sooooo happy that my husband and I found ISMILE! Our experience was TOP NOTCH!  The attentiveness of both staff and assistants was EXCELLENT.  They were thorough and made me feel like I have been going there for years!!!  Not only is their office professional but they took care of my teeth.  I had a cleaning and went back for fillings.  I will not be going anywhere else.  Thank you ISMILE team for going above and beyond for me and my husband.  We are sooo very happy with your impeccable service.

I’ve been going here for a few years now and every time I have had a great experience! The office is clean and everyone is very friendly. I do miss when Dr. Helmy would do the cleanings himself, as that was the main factor I changed dentists to begin with, but I keep coming back because I always have a great experience!

So let’s start by saying I have EXTREME dental anxiety. Once I told them that over the phone when first calling they immediately had a solution to help me relax. Not to mention the staff and Dr. James Helmey are absolutely the SWEETEST! They are so calming and communicative the entire appointment. Everything went so smooth. I am so thankful I found them. I will be referring all my family and friends

This is such an amazing dental practice! Dr. Helmy is very professional and precise in his work. The staff all greeted me with a smile and took me in right away. I went for teeth whitening and it came out amazing.  My teeth have never been whiter and it’s been a month since I got it done and they still are white and bright. I always go back to iSmile Dental and recommend Dr. Helmy to everyone!

Mary, Ricardo and Dr Helmy were very customer service oriented. They took the time to get to know me and listen and thoroughly explained everything and answered all of my questions. They did not rush at all. It’s a small intimate practice and they have earned themselves a new long-term patient. They offer flexible hours which is perfect. Thank you for such a great experience.

De Helmy was great. He is professional and knowledgeable however I would say adamantly that he should not be having his assistant work on anything but handing him tools yet. While she is very lovely she is not skilled to polish teeth or manage your mouth and it would be the only reason I don’t return. You should request he do all the work.

Excellent first visit. Dr. Helmy seems to know his profession very well and has an outstanding personality. His (male) assistant is very kind, as well. You have to love their youthful enthusiasm. I was impressed that Dr. Helmy himself did my teeth-cleaning. What other dentist would want to be bothered?

I have been a patient of Dr. Helmy for several years now. I’ve always had great customer service and dental worked performed at iSmile Dental. The staff there is fantastic and just had a thorough cleaning performed by Ricardo who did an amazing job. Went above and beyond to help and educate me on maintaining good dental health. Thanks for taking care of my wife and I. I highly recommend Dr. Helmy if you are in the hunt for a great dentist.

After arriving at my appointment time I was seen promptly. The reception staff is very friendly and attentive. After my thorough cleaning courtesy of Roberto the hygienist, who has wonderful bedside manners, Dr. James made sure to take the time to address any concerns I had. Highly recommend this family run practice!

Smile Dental did actually make me smile! This was my first visit as I recently relocated from out of state. Dr. Helmy and his staff were very friendly and professional. His administrative staff checked with my insurance company the day before my visit to ensure my dental services would be covered which I appreciated. I enjoyed my visit and would highly recommend them.

My uncle recommended it to me, I got my wisdom teeth removed, and I had a great experience. The doctor was genuinely caring about me as a person. I noticed he washed his hands very frequently, and the entire office was very neat. The staff is great. The procedure was very quick and painless. I’ve never written a review before, but they deserve it.

Carol Taylor (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Helmy is an exceptional dentist! He possesses an unusual quality for a dentist in Boca Raton…. he’s honest! He doesn’t insist upon unnecessary procedures like my previous dentist at Sage Dental. His whole team is very welcoming and professional. I highly recommend Dr. Helmy for your dental care.

I had the best experience you could think of when going to the dentist. The staff was extremely professional, polite and so welcoming. From the time I walked in I felt special, lol I owned the place. At first I was scared because I don’t have insurance. But that was not a problem. They have a great and very affordable in house insurance plan with a 1 time payment for AH WHOLE YEAR !!!! Like can you even believe that. Right I couldn’t either. The doctor was as wonderful as his staff. Very easy to talk to. Really knows what he’s doing. Provided me with some much information. Set up a plan with me for my dental care. I literally had ZERO COMPLAINTS. And trust me it’s hard to please me I will always find something that don’t sit well with me, but this visit, this visit I was able to sit well, lay well, everything was just well well well. Lol I recommend everyone come to Dr.James for all your dental care and needs. TRUST ME, YOU WONT REGRET IT!!

I have been going to Dr. Helmy since I moved to Boca Raton (roughly 3 years ago) and have been incredibly satisfied with this practice since my very first visit. Everyone I have interacted with there is so incredibly polite and thoughtful. I really would recommend this dental practice to anyone. Especially if you have TMJ symptoms or disorder- Dr. Helmy’s guidance regarding this issue has changed my life! I consider myself quite fortunate to have found iSmile Dental- and you should, too!

I found Dr. Helmy after seeing a dozen other dentists in the Boca area. I’m usually very scared of the dentists office, and am very sensitive to the overall vibes a dentist gives me. I can truly say that settling with Dr. Helmy pretty much cured the anxiety I’d always get from the sound of the drill. Plus, his cosmetic work is trustworthy and efficient- you won’t be visiting the office more times than you need. 5 stars for sure!

Dr. Helmy was the first person to ever see or touch the inside of my mouth as a dentist. I never trusted any dentist, ever! But he had a way of making me feel open and comfortable with him to the point to where I needed to trust him. Throughout my procedures, I honestly didnt think it was as bad as I thought it would have been and highly doubt it could have been taken care of any better way than the way he took care of me. Thank you so much!

I have been going to see Dr.Helmy for a couple of years now and he is the best dentist I have ever gone to. I am really picky about who does my dental work and I absolutely hate going to the dentist, it is always an uncomfortable situation for me. But, when I started seeing Dr. Helmy, I didn’t have the same fears and phobia because he and his staff made me feel so comfortable. Having graduated from Nova Southeastern University Dentistry School, Dr. Helmy is very skilled with bonding work, implants, and new techniques used for dentistry. Dr. Helmy has fixed two of my front teeth with bonding and he does all of my cleanings, xrays, and cavities for me. I don’t have insurance so Dr. Helmy has worked with me on the price. I purchased his care plan which lasts for a year and it has made the dental visits affordable. I spent years avoiding the dentist because it made me feel uncomfortable or nervous and now I am happy to go because I genuinely feel that the staff and Dr. Helmy himself really do care about their patients. Unlike most dentists who want to get through a client fast, Dr. Helmy cares to ask how I am doing and spends a lot of time on my teeth. He never rushes me out and I always leave happy because he takes the time to make sure they are perfect. When it comes to dental work, I would not recommend any one else except for Dr. Helmy.

I have been their patient for a while now, and since the first visit, they stole my heart. The friendliness and genuine care of everyone there is heartwarming. I just referred a family member due to an emergency and they graciously booked them within the same day. Now Dr Helmy gained an entire family which is willing to travel to see him.Thanks Maryann, Dr Helmy: thank you for your genuine care, not many physicians take time to really listen to their patients’ concerns. A big sincere “Thank you “ to the rest of your wonderful staff. Best wishes.

Linda G. from Boca Raton, FL (Source: Yelp)


Doctor Helmy and his staff are kind and professional. They explain cost and insurance coverage right away  so no surprises. Doctor Helmy is beyond patient and caring and does a great job. I would highly recommend  his practice. You will not find a more reasonably priced ,highly trained Dentist anywhere in Boca.

Maggie A. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


I always have a wonderful experience at iSmile from the moment I enter the door. The staff are all so friendly and courteous, they take time and care with each patient. Dr. Helmy is thorough and patient when answering questions and explaining procedures. Every experience at iSmile has been positive. And always with very little pain, which is the best part! And most important, the practice is very honest – I once had to go to a different dentist for a near emergency when I had to work in another city, and they offered service that cost an arm and a leg, but when I went to iSmile it was a fraction of the price, with the same product. Highly recommend.

This dentist office is absolutely amazing . From the office to the staff and the doctor. I have major anxiety when it comes to the dentist but coming here is such a great experience. They make sure to check up on you , they care about how you are feeling. The way you are treated is like family. I love this place and everyone there. I highly recommend to everyone!

The office is meticulously clean. The font desk staff is so efficient (my forms were ready for my signature when I arrived!) Dr. Helmy took the time to discuss my concerns, thoroughly examined my mouth and had a full set of x-rays taken. I was able to get a follow-up appointment 2 days later. Excellent service! I just found my new dentist!

Dusty Brown (Source: Google)


Wonderful experience! I was very apprehensive of going to the dentist and Ricardo was very comforting and explained everything to me before he conpleted my deep teeth cleaning. I was scared of pain and there was NO PAIN! The Dr has a great manner and personality. The receptionist was super friendly and helpful. 10/10.

Tanya K. from Boca Raton, FL (Source: Yelp)


I am appalled by the negative reviews I see on this yelp. I have been a patient of Dr. Helmy and iSmile dental for around 8 years. I have had major dental work done including root canals, veneers, and cavities filled as well as regular maintenance. This practice has been fairly priced, incredibly responsive, and the best dentistry I have experienced in my 50+ years of life. Any problem was always taken care of at the practices cost. If things weren’t done perfectly the first time which often happens in dentistry, the doctor would do it over again with concern and care. Dentistry is far from easy and each person’s individual mouth is an opportunity for the unpredictable to happen. I went to see these people with horrible teeth and a lifetime of bad, painful dentistry. Dr Helmy Changed my life, appearance, and trust of dentists. In fact, for a brief period I had dental insurance that didn’t cover him but still went to him and paid out of pocket. This doctor is the furthest from a Con Man I can ever imagine. His wife does everything in running the office to make the patient comfortable and finding a solution to a problem within your budget. Anyhow I stand by this practice of dentistry and my personal experience and professional evaluation. You will not find a more talented dentist with his much integrity as Dr Helmy.

I Had a broken bridge that was not only bothering me but was very painful. Since I tried many dentists before and was not happy with the service, I decided to live with pain but I could not take it anymore. I asked a lot of friends about a good dentist and One of them told me about Dr.Helmy. I did call his office and the secretary was very nice and gave me an appointment. After checking my teeth Dr.Hemy explained me in details what should be done with the most important one first and then the others.He was very convincing and logic and did not put any kind of pressure. It did not take me long to think and decided to go ahead and start. I am very happy with the work that he did and I was very touched and really happy when he called me after doing some work to check if I was OK. I do strongly recommend Dr. Helmy

VERY PLEASED. I needed a cavity filled ASAP. I called on Thursday during the COVID 19 issue and had an appointment that next day on Friday. No one was there expect the Dentist and his wife, Maryanne, who worked the desk. The office was very clean and organized. I expressed how desperately scared I was of needles and he broke down the steps of what would happen, he told me to tell him if I felt any discomfort and the process was very fast and efficient. I felt like he really knew what he was doing. This is probably one of the best dentist visits I’ve had in my life… I’ll for sure be coming back for my cleaning and recommending to anyone who needs a dentist!

BEST DENTIST I’VE EVER HAD! Hands down, Dr. Helmy is the best dentist I’ve had since childhood. This is an excellent practice. Dr. Helmy is extremely thorough and explains everything he does from start to finish. His manner of care is gentle and precise (he really knows how to give an injection so that you hardly feel a thing). I am in the middle of having crown work done after a root canal and a broken tooth, so I’ve had two, long appointments with Dr. Helmy and another one scheduled in a few weeks. He is a perfectionist. His assistant, Juan, is wonderful as well (super personality). Dr. Helmy’s wife is lovely and also assists him on occasion. And lastly, his office assistant, Sue, is very helpful and kind. The atmosphere in this practice is immaculate, calming, and nothing about it screams chaos or too busy to provide personalized care. Dr. Helmy has a very calm and professional demeanor, and laughs easily. While this may seem odd for me to include, I find that most people would prefer an easygoing, kind medical professional as opposed to aggressive and domonstrative; I know I do. During both of my appointments I noticed that other patients who were at the front desk checking out appeared to be very satisfied with their visits as well. This speaks volumes. My first appointment was a consultation to explain what needed to be done, and his office broke down the cost of what I could expect for two options depending upon the course of treatment I would need based on the outcome once Dr. Helmy examined a particular tooth. I was able to plan financially and really appreciated this information. His fees are fair and customary. Lucky for me, I did not need an implant. Dr. Helmy referred me to another dentist for a root canal, and his referral was excellent. I never thought I would say I enjoy going to the dentist, but with Dr. Helmy, I have no anxiety or worry with my appointments and, the pain level has been minimal at best. I’m relaxed and know that I’m in excellent hands. I highly recommend iSmile.

Dr. Helmy and staff represent among the finest in the profession. Their professional approach is only to be eclipsed by Dr Helmy and team’s gracious manner. Furthermore, when it comes to billing I have never had a disparity between that which was quoted (even the portion covered by insurance and not) and the resulting bill. I could not recommend a dentist and staff any more highly!

Dr. Helmy has improved the health of my teeth. A very competent dentist who does not create unnecessary work. He is particular and accurate. I have had a number of crowns replaced and am quite satisfied with them. Dr. Helmy is a friendly, considerate denisit and I trust him. His office is also very convenient to East Boca Raton.

I needed a periodontal deep cleaning and scaling and was dreading it because I haven’t been to a dentist in I can’t even remember how long, definitely over 10 years. I was told by a dentist in the military if I didn’t have this periodontal cleaning done, I could lose my teeth. I explained my concerns to Dr Helmy and he made it seem not so bad during the examination. Then the day of the deep cleaning I was dreading it as I knew there was a lot of work to be done. When it was over and I got out of the chair it wasn’t anywhere NEARLY as bad as I thought it was going to be. ZERO pain, ZERO discomfort, just outright truly phenomenal work. I’m incredibly happy with the results and my oral health. I will not go to any other dentist! I even recommended a buddy to go see him that needed a bond, and he was more than happy with the results. I never knew a dentist could be this great!

Whatever Chelsea Kajs said was absolutely ridiculous… Dr. Helmy is most definitely the best dentist in South Florida. I really mean it; I have been to several dentists in the area and they all did not do a good job and make you pay way too much. Dr. Helmy is a true professional and has gifted hands. He is compassionate, considerate, honest, funny and above all he truly cares about the satisfaction of his patients. I just came out from his office because I had to get a tooth pulled out; it was in really bad shape. I haven’t been to the dentist in a very long time so I was pretty nervous today. Dr. Helmy made everything go so smoothly and with no pain…he is such a gifted person. If you live in South Florida, this should be the only dentist you should be seeing. Absolutely amazing! There is no better dentist…that goes without question. Dr. Helmy beats all dentists in South Florida. I know for a fact that he is my dentist from now on…he should be yours too if you really want someone who truly cares about making you feel better.

Front desk to technician to doctor himself, everyone at iSmile Dental made me feel well taken care of and that I was in good hands. Dr. Helmy and the team all made me feel very comfortable and had great patience with me being that I was quite nervous about dentists. Amazing dental office, can’t praise them enough!
