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

Mary P. from San Carlos, San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Five stars is not enough for how efficient Dr. Javadi runs his dental practice.  Our family has been treated by Javadi Smiles for almost six years, and couldn’t be happier with the personal service we’ve received from his entire staff.  They have become like family to us, so we don’t mind going to the dentist.  We’ve referred many people to Javadi Smiles, and they have all come away with the same feeling, because Dr. Javadi and his team (Ray, Linda & Faith, specifically) treat you as a person, not a herd of cattle.  Never thought I would say, “I don’t mind going to the dentist.”

Javadi Smiles takes COVID seriously without compromising care in the slightest. I don’t imagine that was an easy transition for dentistry. First they took my temperature before I entered, then had me fill out a questionnaire evaluating my risk level and a waiver to acknowledge my responsibilities. The rooms were sanitized and the equipment was either sterile, aseptically opened or disposable. Hygienists and Dr Javadi were in full PPE the whole time. They were very kind as well, and took time to explain the procedures and my options. They were clear and helpful in informing me of my dental insurance coverage as well. Bonus points: They are also open on some Saturdays!

I am beyond grateful to have found Dr. Javadi and his team!! My fiancée found Javadi Smiles back in December when he needed a molar pulled due to mouth pain. We were also both overdue for a cleaning, since neither of us had dental insurance . We found This office to not only have the friendliest most professional and helpful staff, but also to be amazingly affordable!!! In fact, they offer their own in house insurance and for $99 a year (for a couple), we BOTH get dental care for at least half of what we would pay at other offices!! When I had my teeth cleaned in December , Dr. Javadi recommended that I schedule to have all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed. I wanted to save money and my wisdoms had never given me much trouble so I carried on without an appointment. Last Monday I horribly regretted my decision. By Tuesday the pain was unbearable so I finally called the office. Faith and Linda were both so helpful! They managed to squeeze me in for an appointment on Thursday so that I did not have to wait a whole week while in pain! I really appreciated all the time Faith took on the phone with me, and that she went above and beyond to get me in to the office as soon as possible, not to mention showed the same level of care and kindness when I called back 4 times with different questions. They even called in an antibiotic prescription for me the night before, so that I could begin the antibiotics to ease my mind since I was worried about getting an infection. My appointment only took about an hour, and Dr. Javadi removed two of my wisdom teeth. He did an amazing job, and I was astounded at how gently he was able to numb the area, so i finally got some relief from my pain, and I didn’t feel a thing as he removed the teeth. Mabel was super friendly and knowledgable, and was so sweet answering all of my silly questions. I thought getting my wisdom teeth removed would require me to use all of my savings! With the in-house insurance, I only paid $300 !!! I was so happy i did not have to dip into savings, or use a credit card! I will be returning to Dr. Javadi for all of my dental needs, and I will refer all of my family and friends! I will also heed his advice, and be prescheduling an appointment to remove my other wisdom teeth before they start to hurt! As well as scheduling the other recommendations. So happy I found a dentist I can trust. They are so flexible on payment arrangements, and I didn’t feel like they were recommending unnecessary work just to make a buck. It’s day 2 after my appointment, and i’m already starting to feel so much bette! Thank you again Dr. Javadi, Faith, Linda, Mabel, and the rest of the staff!! You have a lifetime patient in myself and my fiancee!!

I needed a tooth pulled on a Saturday and looked up dentists on Yelp. I avoided the 5 star reviewed figuring that they would be the most expensive. Calling around to a few other dentist offices I received offers for dental plans and insurances and the best quotes were for 300 and up just to pull a tooth. So now I figure if I have to pay that much I might as well try a 5 star reviewed dentist. I called Javadi Smiles, Faith was nice and concerned about my tooth problem and didn’t try to sell me a dental plan or insurance. She said come on in and we can do it for 200! SWEET! I went to the offices and they were clean 1st rate and professional. The assistants were very attentive of my needs and Dr. Javadi was very good at relieving any anxiety I had about dentist visits. First rate work, attitude and professional service IMHO 🙂

Dr. Javadi and his team are so accommodating. I’ve never felt more welcome or comfortable with dental work. He’s truly an architect at his craft, and his team follows suit. I’m grateful for the entire staff and I recommend anyone that has ever had a unpleasant experience with a dentist to this office. This Dental group will change your mind.

Ashton B. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been to MANY dental offices around san diego, however, Javadi Smiles is the best and I wouldn’t go to anyone else besides them. Dr. Javadi is amazing and his work is fantastic. I was so afraid to go to the dentist and even when i was there I was extremely nervous but he calmed my nerves, and he was so patient with me. He is very gentle. I needed a root canal and he did an exquisite job. He is so fair and honest when it comes to things that need to be done, I’ve felt cheated by so many other dentists here in san diego but Dr. Javadi is very caring and listened to my concerns and gave me a great dental plan to take a took care of the things that really needed to be done, he didnt try to hound me for further dental work that isn’t necessary..other dentists try to squeeze you for all that you have. Also, Dr. Javadi is so great at accommodating patients who need immediate attention. When I called because I was in excruciating pain for my root canal, he was able to work on a saturday to get me out of pain. So amazing! And the office staff is amazing!!! The dental assistants are GREAT!! Faith and the front desk ladies are so considerate and sweet. Many other dental offices I have gone to have really impatient and downright rude staff, but everyone in this office is extremely pleasant and they provide a great atmosphere for their patients. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Javadi to everyone.

Regina W. from La Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came to Dr. Javadi with no insurance and from an ad he was running in a community publication. When he learned that I was a cash patient (no dental insurance) they immediately gave me a 20% discount on services. This allowed me to get all of the teeth filled that needed it, but one at a time. Dr. Javadi and his staff were professional, friendly and conscientous. I never felt that I was being pushed into anything, and he is gentle (for a dentist) and constantly asks you for feedback during the procedure as well, ie, “Are you doing okay? Are you feeling any discomfort? etc” I’m the type of person who needs a lot of reassurance from a dentist during a procedure. I go in tomorrow for my final filling (YES, they are open on Sat, once a month). Great experience, great dentist, I would highly recommend Dr. Javadi. Regina W. La Mesa, CA

I have been a patient since he opened this office. I have been very happy with the dental care I have received. Not only is Dr. Javadi a skilled dentist but he has a knack for hiring superior staff. Over the many years I’ve had 3 crowns, a root canal, an overlay and a couple of cavities filled. All of these have been done excellently. Over time I’ve noticed that the equipment keeps being updated to the latest technology…lots of computers and advances in imaging. Overall, I’m very happy with this office.

Elisabeth Newbold (Source: Google)


Dr. Javadi is a wonderful dentist! His first priority is making sure the patient is comfortable. While working on me, he constantly checks to make sure I’m not feeling any pain. He works fast and gets the job done perfectly. He is also proactive with treatment plans. He won’t do unnecessary work. He clearly discusses the long-term plan for dental care with us so we know what to expect as time goes by. His staff is also extremely helpful, friendly and efficient! Linda is always happy to answer my questions about insurance, and has helped me evaluate various policies so I can choose the best one for our needs. My husband and I have been going to Javadi Smiles for years and we highly recommend him. Unlike most people, we actually enjoy “going to the dentist!”

Rob S. from La Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have no connection with Dr. Javadi or his staff other than as a very happy patient. This practice was the old Lake Murray Dental with whom I began my course of treatment. They were a complete nightmare to deal with and until Dr. Javadi took over I was ready to take legal action against them. His expertise and patient care are exemplary and I have gone from angry and completely dissatisfied to pleased and appreciative. If you are looking for a caring and skilled dentist with a pleasant personality you need look no further. Good staff too! I repeat I have no connection with the staff and have received no benefit for this review. Try this clinic you will be pleased.

Amanda S. from El Cajon, CA (Source: Yelp)


I cannot say enough good things about this dental office!! Everyone from the front staff to the assistants, and Dr. Javadi! I have been coming here for over a year and now my husband and kiddos come here as well. Always friendly, always professional, and have NEVER recommended unnecessary work. I can always make an appointment in a timely manner, and they are excellent at addressing emergencies (ie. broken tooth). I had a root canal done on a tooth that I was putting off for a while, and I wish I wouldn’t have waited! Dr. Javadi kept making sure that I was comfortable and not in any pain, he took his time, and did excellent work! The next day I forgot I even had a root canal done! I am so grateful I found this dentist and gave them a try.

Kay Henderson (Source: Google)


My first appointment was great. Everyone was friendly and informative. Realistic options and a treatment plan was provided without all the BS. I was very happy with the service received today. After attending many other dental practices to essentially find the “right one” I have had no luck until now. Thank you for the great experience and I will be back for sure.

Paola N. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love love love this dentist office. Dr Javadi is very patient, very kind and gentle. My son needed some work done and needs to go for a few visits, every time we have been there Dr. Javadi takes the time to explain what he’s going to do and does his best to ease the anxiety off of him. I am very pleased with his job even though it’s not a pediatric dentist, he is very good with kids. The staff and dental assistants are very very nice too and are very kind. It definitely makes a difference when a doctor of any kind has nice staff because they put you at ease. I would definitely recommend this dental office.

Ashlee A. from Pismo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was visiting the area for the weekend. I woke up very early on a Saturday morning with the worst tooth pain you could imagine in one of my molars. After hours of searching online and calling trying to find some sort of emergency dental services in the area, Dr. Javadi’s office said I could come right in. From the moment I walked in to the moment I left, everyone I came in contact with and the care I received was exceptional. Dr. Javadi relieved my excruciating pain by performing palliative care on my molar and advised me to contact my primary dentist that I needed endodontic surgery. My primary and the endodontic surgeon both commented that the work he did on my molar was incredible. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone, thanks again. 🙂

Erin B. from La Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great dentist! I have been to so many bad dentists, I am so paranoid. I went to gentle dental before this and they told me I had a bunch of cavities and dr. Javadi said I had none. Dr. Javadi is honest and I feel it is hard to find someone to trust. After being told I needed two crowns at gentle dentle in grossmont, Dr Javadi said I could use a small inlay so I did that. It went smooth and seemed very well done. I had a hole in that tooth, not from a cavity but from an old cavity that fell out. Anyway, I really recommend Dr JAvadi. Funny how gentle dental in grossmont has incredible availability because people hate that place!

Kelsey O. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


So happy I found them and started going here. I’m one of those weird people who like going to the dentist. I had a great dentist but when insurance changed it has been about 2 years. I have family who go here and have for years and only had good things to say. It was a great experience from start to finish. Faith (front desk) was awesome in getting us started and setup over the phone answering all questions and never made me feel rushed like she had something else more important to do. The place is clean and very up to date on tech equipment and I really liked the music they had on during my cleaning. Dr. Javadi took the extra time to go through all my X-rays and show me what he looks for even though there was no extra work needed on my mouth. Julie who cleaned my teeth could not have been more pleasant and enjoyable to talk with while she worked. Plus my mouth felt amazing after leaving. Looking forward to going back in 6 months!

Joi O. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


When I called to make my first appointment, the person I talked to was very friendly and helpful and I was able to get an appointment in the next week for X-Rays. When I came in, everyone was friendly and I was taken back quickly. They have new technology for panoramic X-Rays that I had never experienced before. Dr. Javadi is the most informative dentist I’ve ever had. First, he went over every answer of my dental history and problems I was having and explained why I am feeling sensitivity to certain things. He explained everything on the X-Rays, from layers of the tooth to bone density and where my cavities were. Then, the treatment coordinator gave me a print out of the recommended treatments with pricing. I opted out of one treatment and it was not an issue, I was able to book the rest of the treatments a month later. I was put on a cancellation list and they called me every time there was an opening for the timeframe I was looking for. I was able to come in weeks before my original appointment. As for my treatment, wow. I felt so comfortable. Dr. Javadi made sure I was completely numb and the dental assistant put a rubber dam in my mouth that protected the rest of my teeth and my tongue, as well as something rubber to bite on to help keep my mouth open. This made a huge difference in comfort compared to dental treatments I’ve had in the past. I’m happy with the customer service and treatment I had here and will be back.

If you have a phobia of dentist or just want an awesome experience, then, come to Dr. Javadi… Great bedside manner and the procedure went really smooth. Also, not to mention one of the best, if not the best, teeth cleaning that I’ve ever had. Thank you everyone for being so friendly; from the front desk staff to the final touches of paperwork and billing. Five Stars in my book and I am confident they will be in yours too!

Craig Gillson (Source: Google)


Dr. Javadi’s dental practice is one of the best I have been to. The office staff is friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming. The dental hygienists are gentle and thorough. The dental equipment is very modern. In this day, a clean and sterile environment is very important, Javadi Smiles is at the top here as well. Dr. Javadi is always very friendly, caring yet very professional. My experiences at this practice have always been positive.

Gibson F. from La Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Javadi and the staff are the best, had a crown fall off on a saturday afternoon going to a stadium concert the next day, they said come right in and they reglued it within an hour, my son had an infection in a wisdom tooth Dr Javadi was out of town and still called in a prescription for him They pulled all 4 wisdom teeth and He called that evening to see how my son was doing Some people are never happy in life , disregard the bad reviews this DR and staff are top notch RECOMMEND them to the highest degree and stars Thank you for your excellent service!!!!!!!!!

Nixon M. from Spring Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


Where do I begin. Well, for starters this was my first time at the office and the first visit to a dentist outside the military. They are extremely polite, make you feel wanted and at home. I went in with a same day appointment as one of my crowns cracked and a filling fell out causing pain. My wife made multiple attempts to schedule an appointment for me, only because my schedule was a bit crazy,  and they made, canceled and rescheduled each time we called with no hassles. It was around 1pm and I was able to schedule an appointment for 3pm. On my way I get a phone call from Javadi Smiles letting me know that the insurance information I gave them wasn’t correct but that they did find my correct insurance information. As soon as I get there I was greeted and informed on everything that was going to happen. After I was seen by the doctor, which again he made me feel welcome and comfortable with the services,  they scheduled me an appointment for the very next day. I did mention to them that I already had an appointment at the VA the next day and that I might have to cancel that one because my tooth was killing me and,for me,it was a priority. After I left I decided to take a nap in the parking since traffic was a bit heavy at that time. No more than 10 minutes later they call me back and informed me I can be seen again that same day if I were to come back. I did. And I am so glad I did. Not only did they fix my teeth, they treated me like family. I never felt unwanted and even though I hate going to the dentist and I hate pain, the entire process was easy, welcoming, and almost painless. I am officially a fan of this office and I highly recommend this place to everyone. Their professionalism,  high standards, cleanliness,  friendliness, and loyalty to the customer is the best I’ve seen.,THANK YOU JAVADI SMILES!!!! See you soon.

I had my first appointment with Dr. Javadi last week and a root canal with him this week.  I was very very happy with both appointments.  He was very kind, as was his entire staff, and I felt very comfortable at his office.  At my first appointment they were very thorough and went over every tooth in my mouth to let me know what was or wasn’t going on with each tooth.  He explained everything that needed to be done and worked with me to prioritize my treatment.  They were very clear on what needed to be done and how much each procedure was going to cost.  I had a root canal done yesterday and it was painless both during and the day after.  Felt very comfortable during the whole procedure as he made sure I was doing ok throughout.  His assistant, Rey (I think was his name as I’m bad with remembering names) was awesome.  He explained everything that was going on and was very easy going. I have a lot more work to be done on my teeth over the next few months but know I will be taken good care of at Dr. Javadi’s office.  I highly recommend him.

I made an appointment with them because I had a really bad toothache. Turned out that I had to get a root canal. From the very first visit, the staff and doctor were very nice and helpful. I’m usually nervous when I go to the dentist but they made my experience there very comfortable and easy. During the procedures, the doctor and staff made sure if I was ok and that made my experience even better. I definitely recommend this dentist office, you will not be disappointed.

Dr. Javadi is the best. Would I recommend him to a close personal friend, I already have a couple years ago. His a Professional He has patience ( I have a deep fear of dental procedures from a child), very Knowledgeable and he never stops learning and growing as a professional. His office is clean and staff extremely friendly. Now, COVID-19! I broke a tooth yesterday and his office staff got me in today. I was very concerned about covid. Dr. Javadi and his staff have implemented safety precautions and procedures to put your mind at ease. But of course you and I must do our part too to keep ourselves, office staff, other patients, and our favorite dentist safe.

Miranda A. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I found Dr Javadi about a year ago.  I love his staff, they are all very friendly and call me by name as I enter the door. The decor is really eye pleasing too. Dr Javadi himself is very patient and has a calming presence which is very important for people who are afraid in the dentists office.  The music is soothing too.  They have the best technology I have ever seen, the digital xrays are displayed  on a big monitor (which you can see clearly) in seconds, and Dr Javadi explains everything clearly.  I have always been presented with the reasonable bill quotes BEFORE the procedure, and we have discussed any changes in quotes first.  I really think Javadi Smiles does a great job !

Sara W. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I purchased a Groupon deal (or could have been Living Social, don’t remember) for a one-hour teeth whitening.  The deal was so amazing that I really didn’t think it would turn out but took the chance anyway.   This was my first time getting my teeth whitened.  I was able to get in on a Saturday as they are open every other Saturday which is super helpful for someone who lives in La Mesa but works 8-5 in Solana Beach.  The office was very nice with a nice flat screen tv in the waiting room.  I was taken to a room where an assistant described what/how she would be doing the procedure and made sure to ask me if I had any questions.  The procedure was simple, all I had to do was lay back in a chair with the lights turned low, read the magazines they offered me and relax.  About 1.5 hours later, it worked, my teeth were several shades whiter!!!!!  My family and friends have definitely noticed the difference in the whiteness of my teeth.  I’m just waiting for another deal to pop up so I can get it done again as it is very expensive anywhere you go without a discount.  I’m a 34 year-old former smoker so it would be nice to have another go-around 🙂  Thank you Javadi Smiles!!

Lea U. from La Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I STRONGLY DISAGREE with some of these ratings. My family, a few friends and I are all patients of Dr. Javadi, we have never experienced any of these issues. He is one of the most thorough dentist I have gone to. You can tell he genuinely cares for his patients and does quality work. If there were any questions regarding my insurance, Crystal his office manager was great at explaining any details I didn’t understand. I also love Julie his hygienist, she made sure I was comfortable a explained everything she was doing. This office is AS GOOD AS IT GETS, I highly recommend you give them a chance and see for yourself!!!

Soleil J. from Chula Vista, CA (Source: Yelp)


Javadi Smiles is a great Family Dentistry.  Dr. Javadi and his staff take the necessary time with each patient and always try to fulfill the patient’s needs and concerns.  Dr. Javadi truly cares about your oral care and does the best possible job to make your experience pleasant and comfortable.  I was very pleased with the patient care I received.  Everyone in the office is very friendly and welcoming. They completely understood my concerns and explained all steps and procedures.  I strongly recommend Javadi Smiles, it’s a great dentistry environment!

Mike Milloy (Source: Google)


The office manager is always working to get you into an appointment that fits your schedule. The technicians are on the spot to ensure Dr Javadi has X-ray and information on the patient before he arrives to begin his dentistry. Dr Javadi is always concerned about the comfort of the patient and will answer all and any questions before he begins his procedures.

Bunny Mays (Source: Google)


As a new patient, I continue to be pleased with the friendly and professional manner of every person I’ve come in contact with at your office. I look forward to being your patient. This was written probably a year ago and I forgot to post it. Today, 30 October 2020, I was in the Office for an emergency chipped tooth repair. Again everyone was Friendly and Professional and got my problem taken care of. I am so pleased with the care and consideration given to me on each visit this past year. Whether I’m there for a Cleaning or a Root Canal, I am treated more like a Guest than a patient. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Javadi Smiles to Friends and Family. Thank you to my God-sister, Genie M. for referring me to your Office.

Andrea V. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Wow. Wow. Wow. Hands down the best dental experience I have had yet. I have always been scared to go to the dentist due to previous bad experiences but Dr.Javadi and his team are more than phenomenal. They are really just an outstanding, outgoing, understanding, great team. I recently got all four of my wisdom teeth out ( I know, I’m crazy right?) and originally I was terrified because of all the horror stories I heard from others but it couldn’t have been a better “wisdom-teeth” experience. I choose to be awake and under local anesthesia (another thing I was advised by others to avoid). The amazing experience started with Linda and Jenna who both helped me patiently make the appointment and most importantly consistently reminded me of my appointment. As I walked in they greet me with huge smiles and great positive-welcoming attitude (a detail that is often missed at medical offices) Which made me feel more at ease. I was then prepped by dental assistant Ray who was very professional and comforting. I don’t quite remember how I ended up telling him I wanted to dance ( keep in mind I was already on Valium) but more importantly, it remained the theme of my experience. So every time I got nervous or when he felt it was necessary to comfort me he’d say something along the lines of “dance” and I would laugh and momentarily forget what I was getting myself into. In walks Dr.Javadi and he too was up with the program and asked me, along the lines of, “if I was ready to dance”. As nervous as I was, I was ready! My extractions came out smoothly. I felt NO pain. The doctor was great at walking me through what he was doing next so that I knew what was going on. He checked on me after every move he made by saying “still okay? Still dancing?”. He would advise me if he needed to add more pressure or if I was going to feel something weird so that I wasn’t surprised. When I was done we all did a final “dance” and cleaned up. I was able to keep 3 of my teeth which I will forever keep and remember how great the experience was considering the what others experienced. Dr. Javadi’s care didn’t end there. During my recovery at home over the weekend, I had tons of questions and concerns ( such as: “how should I rinse if”, “eating”, “pain”, etc.) and mind you these are not emergency situations but he was still a good sport about advising me throughout the weekend via his emergency line. He is a very caring doctor and I appreciate that because now and days that aspect in a medical provider is lost. I am still recovering but I can see the light as I am almost completely healed. (knock on wood) I didn’t have any complications during recovery of any kind. I was up and running (literally) after four days and I was eating solids by the 3rd day. TRUST ME!!!! If you are doing your shopping, Javadi smiles is the way to go! THANK YOU DR.JAVADI AND TEAM!

Ebony I. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I got my top and bottom left side wisdom teeth out. I really appreciate the Team there answering all my questions and constantly asking if I was okay to reassure me that they are there to help. Dr. Javadi was very nice and understanding and didn’t pressure me to get certain things done like other dentist have done in the past. I really dislike going to the doctor and dentist but this time it was a good experience. I hope I don’t have to go back but if I do it will be to Javadi smiles. Thank you guys I feel fine post-op.

Jerry K. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am very impressed with their whole operation. First, the office is clean, well decorated and the staff is very friendly. You can see the attention to detail when you walk in. It may sound unimportant but I’m not one who enjoys going to any doctor so the more comfortable I feel, the better. I just had deep cleaning done on my whole mouth (normally they do just one side but I wanted the whole 9 yards done in one day) by Joanne and i felt very comfortable. She kept me informed every step of the way, warned me if I might feel some discomfort and made sure I knew what was going on before, during and after the procedure. Best cleaning ever. The overall feeling I received is that I was important to them, not just a number. They spent the time going over what my options are (since my teeth have not been well maintained) and I like their conservative approach to getting my teeth back into good health.

I had a severe toothache during the Christmas break. I called my dentist and he said he was on vacation. He referred me to his friend Dr. Javadi. It’s amazing that Dr. Javadi’s office was open on 12/26. He gave me a prescription to stop my toothache first. Then, I had my root canal there. Dr. Javadi is very thoughtful and efficient. He constantly asked me if I was doing OK. His staff is friendly and helpful too. Lexus gave me a pillow so that I felt more comfortable while having the root canal. His staff answered all my questions professionally. I like Javadi Smiles.

Sia K. from Lake Forest, CA (Source: Yelp)


My wife and I both needed a lot work done, from root canals to crowns to fixing other dentists’ mistakes to extraction of my wisdom tooth, and on and on and on. Every step of the way Dr. Javadi was compassionate, human, caring, in control and wise in his discipline. He knew what he was doing and always did things with extra care. During procedures he frequently asked about how we are doing and if we are experiencing discomfort or pain. In addition to doing a fantastic job on our teeth, he is always cautious to avoid unnecessary paths that may lead to more expense while keeping our health and look as a priority. What else could I possibly say about Dr. Javadi and his entire team! He was so present, willing, and capable to do a fantastic job. His Certified Dental Assistant, Kristen, is always pleasant, helpful, and super-caring. One time she actually skipped her lunch to make sure we were taking care of. Rey is also a Certified Dental Assistant who always goes out of his way to explain everything to us and be super gentle working on my wife’s teeth because of her sensitivity. He is personable and makes you feel like you are in good hands. Our recent visit to get our teeth cleaned was done by the Hygienist Joanne. Let me say in all the cleanings I have done, this has been the most comfortable, efficient, and effective experience. She was very informative in explaining what she was doing and why she was doing it. My wife also had a similar experience receiving lots of good tricks for a healthier teeth. She provided us great information for leading a healthier dental lifestyle and gave us great feedback. Dr. Javadi’s team always call after the visits to check and make sure we are okay. I was experiencing an infection once and during the weekend Dr. Javadi called me from his personal line to see if I needed anything. I mean who really does that these days!? -Only someone who truly cares about their patients and their health AND comfort. Linda who is the office manager gave us the best first impression you could ask for with my first call into the office and our first visit. AND it continued with all our subsequent visits. She is always smiling, always helpful, very patient and articulates the options and the information from our insurance in a very simple and easy way for us to understand. Catalina, also at the front desk does a fantastic job in welcoming us every time we visit, setting our appointments and never hesitating to go to Dr. Javadi with any of our questions when we call. She always adds a personal touch to make us feel like we are the only patients! The dental assistants, hygienist, and the front office team are always in a great mood and behave in a way that you can easily conclude they sincerely love what they do. Before coming to Dr. Javadi, my wife was very anxious with dentists because of a terrible experience with a dentist as a child. After getting work done by Dr. Javadi, she loves going to dentist so much that no matter where life takes us she wants to remain in close proximity to Javadi Smiles 🙂 THIS IS HUGE. It takes a very caring, patient, and loving dentist and dental office to make someone who use to always be anxious to see dentists do a 180. Dr. Javadi and his team have made us lifetime followers. Do not hesitate to give this extraordinary dental office and this extraordinary dentist a try. You wont regret it. PS. Trust me, you’ll write your own review with loads of positive experiences.
