By far, best dentist experience ever. I didn’t wait more than a minute to be seen or between when Dr. Barkhodari & her assistant switched up tasks. Both we’re very friendly. Dr. Barkhodari was as thorough as could be, and gave advice in a way that was easy to understand, unambiguous, and that I knew I could trust. Before the visit, I submitted my patient info online so I didn’t have to fill out one of those long clipboards when I got there, and it was ready for me to sign when I arrived. I didn’t have to re-give any info. Original appointment was done online with numerous reminders. Very reliable experience.

Dr. Barkhodari was recommended to me by a colleague after I explained I have a deep phobia of dentistry and feared I needed to have some serious work done.  In the past I have been shamed by dentists for being afraid, or shedding tears.  In this office, both the technician and the Dr. took the time to get to know me, ask exactly what it was that triggered my fear, and then talk me through each step so I would be able to relax.  The quality of dentistry was excellent of course, but what mattered most to me was being treated like a whole person.  I am indeed taking care of some major dentistry at this office, and I am still afraid, but somehow I am able to relax and endure what was impossible for me before.  I would wholeheartedly recommend this office to anyone who experiences fear or who simply wants excellent care from thoughtful practitioners.

I am really happy with Dr. Barkhodari as my new(ish) dentist. I started seeing her in February, after buying a Bloomspot offer for invisaligns. I’d had kind of a crummy experience with my last dentist and was happy to find someone new. At my first visit, she told me that the crown my last dentist had done was no good. I’d kind of suspected that it wasn’t quite right because when I flossed, it seemed like there was a big gap between my teeth. Turns out its because the crown didn’t cover the whole space it was supposed to. So, for the last 3 months, Dr. Barkhodari has been fixing all the stupid mistakes my last dentist made. Today I’m finally going to get my invisalign trays. Her receptionist/office manager, Karen, is SUPER nice and really responsive via email, which I love. And her hygenist is really nice also. And Dr. Barkhodari herself is really patient and explains everything thoroughly to you, which I really appreciate.

Marianne S. from Daly City, CA (Source: Yelp)


Let me start by saying Dr. Barkhodari is AWESOME! She clearly knows how to treat her patients with passion and sincerity. She shares her knowledge and explains everything what a patient should know. I’ve seen many dentist’s and mos of them were so driven to just get $ from you and my insurance benefits. If you want an honest and a caring dentist, Dr. Barkhodari is the answer.

Kathleen T. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Finally! I have found a dentist in San Francisco. I found out about Dr. Barkhodari via a Groupon I purchased. I had been very unhappy with my previous dentist that took my insurance. Every time I went to the dentist I was there 10 minutes tops while for a cleaning, and they never took any x-rays. Needless to say, it was time to move on. I had my first visit with Dr. B yesterday, the staff is friendly, and office is clean and well kept. The dental assist did a great job of polishing my teeth and removing the coffee stains that are always so bothersome. Xrays were taken, and Dr Barkhodari was super friendly and knowledgable. She took her time with the exam. I felt this is the best care I’ve had from a dentist in years and years! I will definately be back

Nono S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


It took me a while to get around to choosing a new dentist after moving to SF. I’m a bit “phobic” when it comes to dentists. I’ve never been able to find someone that I felt truly comfortable with and trusted. That being said, I’m very happy to have found Dr. Barkhodari. She was referred to me by a friend and after checking out Yelp, I quit procrastinating and made an appointment. Most of the other reviews commented on the office. It’s all true. The office is beautiful but still cozy with a great view. Dr. Barkhodari manages to combine being professional and laid back at the same time. She’s direct about the work you need now, points out what needs to be watched and does this with no pressure. There’s no “hard sale” on the cosmetic stuff. I really appreciated that. Overall, it was a very positive experience. As positive as an experience with a dentist can be. It may have taken me a while but it worked out to where I found someone I feel comfortable with and trust.

Beto L. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Almost feel like want to go to the dentist more often. Dr. Barhodari is a great doctor, when she is working on me I just get a sensation that she knows very well what she is doing and she does it with a lot of care and gentleness. I am not an easy patient and she has made me feel like going to the dentist is a bliss.

Janell D. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I think we can all agree that we hate seeing the dentist, it is never fun, even a routine check up. A good dentist will always find something to poke at in your mouth- primarily because they care; not because they want you to lay there in pain thinking, “stop poking me”! Dr. B has been really good about getting to know me and my pain level. I have been seeing her for over a year and have had some fillings and a pretty big bridge replacement procedure done- she was amazing. Although the process was less than desirable, it was expected and the outcome was amazing! I go in for my routine check up and Dr. B still remembers, after several months, that certain areas in my mouth are more tender than others. I have found her to be very personable and actually enjoy going in for my check ups. I think the one star review is awful and would definitely disagree with Pejman although we are all entitled to our “Yelps”.

Tom L. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


So I was chewing some sticky candy July 4 holiday and one of my crown’s popped out! I litrerally felt and heard a sucking sound and “pop.” Was totally distraught and in pain. I called Dr. Barkhodari’s office first thing Tues and spoke with Monica. Her and I played phone tag back and forth and she offered me some dates to come in. Luckily Thurs worked for me. She squeezed me in. They took some extras and luckily the tooth was okay so the crown could be recemented. When they put it back on my bite was off so Dr. Barkhodari sculpted the crown back down. We kept going back and forth and I felt I was being super picky but my crown just didn’t feel right. She was super patient with my compulsion until it finally fit perfectly. In fact, the crown feels better now than when I first go it 2 years ago and the bite is PERFECT. I was super happy and grateful. So lucky I found a great dentist and staff.

Dr. Barkhodari is extraordinarily thorough and professional. Her staff was also outstanding. She presented me with a detailed plan for an extensive amount of essential dental work I need done and I feel comfortable and confident about having her do it.

Farbod S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great doctor with great staff. Dr.Barkhordari has been our dentist since we moved to Bay Area, she’s done a few crows and filings for me and my wife. She answers all your questions and concerns patiently, and she follows up with you every time after treatments to make sure you don’t have any unusual issues.

Vanessa M. from San Francisco Bay Area, CA (Source: Yelp)


I visited Nazanin Barkhodari’s office a couple of weeks ago for a yearly cleaning and exam. It had been a year since I saw a dentist so I was in need of a check-up, especially since I had some annoying issues that had been bothering me as of late. I expected the office to be nice considering the location (Corner of Union & Buchanan), and it didn’t disappoint with modern and inviting décor. Many medical buildings in S.F. tend to have that run down in-desperate-need-of-an-update feel, but this was definitely not the case here. The best thing about the office atmosphere is the gorgeous view of the Golden Gate and Exploratorium from your chair. Monica at the front desk was super friendly and helpful on the phone when I made my appointment and again when I came in. There are NO paper forms to fill out which is fantastic. You do it all online, so I had everything filled out prior to my appointment. All Monica had me do was sign a little electronic black pad and I was good to go. She was also very knowledgeable about all the insurance coverage questions I asked her. Dr. Barkhodari could not have been more thorough, both with the exam and with recommendations for my treatment. I received a full set of X-Rays, an exam, a cleaning, and a conversation about what next steps are, all within my lunch hour. Thankfully, I wasn’t pressured into tons of unnecessary treatment, and was told to inquire about a couple of them when I felt comfortable. Most importantly, everyone was competent, attentive, and professional, which can sometimes be hard to find. I received a follow up card today thanking me for coming in which was a nice touch, and reminded me to stop procrastinating on my write-up. I will definitely be back soon!

A. C. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Had a great experience at this office when presented last minute for inflammed wisdom tooth. Previously had presented to another dentist in this building for similar pain and was there for over hour while the dentist did a general exam, x-rays, recommendations, despite only presenting for pain in my wisdom tooth. It was essentially a waste of time and money. In pleasant contrast, Dr. Barkhodari was direct, efficient, told me what needed to be done to my wisdom tooth. Did not perform unnecessary services and made a direct referral to an oral surgeon who can assist me. Her professionalism, efficiency and directness were greatly appreciated when I presented in such pain. I wasn’t looking for a new dentist, however my experience here means I will definitely be returning.

Kasra E. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a gap between my teeth where another dentist had done some work and food collected there everyday and it was driving me crazy for years. Other dentists tried fixing it multiple times with no improvement. Dr. Barkhodari re-did the filling for me in a truly Herculean effort, and it worked! I never have to think about it anymore. I cannot recommend her and her wonderful staff enough!

Constantine T. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


I have had nothing but great experiences in my 2+ years of visiting Dr. Barkhodari’s office. She and her staff are extremely helpful, kind, and caring. She is extremely thorough in her work, explains processes in a very understandable way, and is always providing tips for better at-home dental care. Their office has also made several updates in terms of integrating scheduling with emails/texts, which has been very helpful and appreciated. All in all, Dr. Barkhodari’s office provides you with everything you’d ever need from a dentist, including an amazing view of Golden Gate Bridge.

Bry F. from San Francisco Bay Area, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Barkhodari and her staff are always punctual, friendly, and professional. They always remember who I am and are very thorough. All of the technology/tools seem very up to date and the office is  clean with beautiful views!

Rachel S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I go to Dr. Barkhodari for many years and I recommend her care. She is caring, personable, professional and wants to make sure you get the best and proper treatment, appropriate to your teeth. I am lazy at flossing properly and her staff, including herself, is always good and patiently show me over and over at each visit how to floss my teeth efficiently. You always leave her office with some goodies = toothbrush, extra floss and so, perfect for travelling. Her staff is very friendly and competent and the view of the Golden gate bridge is unbeatable. It used to be a burden for me to go to dentist before, but with Dr. Barkhodari, the experience is much more pleasant and I feel really clean when I leave her office.

Ted C. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


She is the best Dentist I ever had. She fixed a lot of bad dental work I had. I felt little pain and I always remember having some pain when I went to the Dentist. She is kind, thoughtful, engaging, and professional. The staff is awesome. Karen the office manager is thoughtful, kind, and has a great memory.Her Dental assist I am sorry I can’t remember her name. Was very loving, and kind. She even gave me neck massage. The downside is the prices seem a little bit higher than normal but you know what they say you pay for what you get.

Jeff L. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Ted C. San Francisco, CAI went through 15 months of hell getting two teeth extracted and then two implants. Dr. B was a pro all the way. She is a skillful dentist, someone I never, not for a second, lost confidence in. She was always sensitive to my discomfort and was great at communicating my options and next treatment steps. I never had a problem getting a hold of her and and she even had me come in a Saturday once or twice to adjust my retainers. She also has a groovy personality and she is just an all around cool woman. She spent a lot of time listening to my frustrations and reassuring me that the process would eventually end in the best way possible. She also has a great sense of humor (we crack each other up!) and treats her patients like human beings rather than just a set of teeth. I highly recommend going to see her!

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


LOVE this team.  From the amazing Karen in the front seat managing the office, the super fabulous dental hygienist Aarin with her careful detail oriented cleaning and cautionary movement around my “sensitive spot” and of course, Dr. Barkhodari and her wonderful bedside manner, attention to detail and positive personality, I can’t say enough about how much I appreciate finding this group.  I am also extremely pleased that she is UC trained (maybe I am slightly biased? 🙂

Jonathan F. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve gotta say, I think that Dr. Barkhodari runs a first class operation.  I’ve been going to her for a few years now, and I’ve always felt that she’s always looking out for me, and that she truly sees me as a person and not another client.  In fact, I’ve since moved from SF to Oakland and I’ll continue to go see her.  My experience has always been that she is absolutely an upstanding professional and that she really goes out of her way to personally check you.  That’s the big difference I find between her and other dentists I’ve been to.  Whereas most dentists come in after the hygienists have done their thing, Dr. Barkhodari really takes upon herself to do most of the work.  It’s a very comforting feeling to say the least.  I recommend wholeheartedly!!

Lauren E. from San Mateo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Barkhodari is great. I went to her initially because I bought a Groupon and was so pleased that I have become a regular patient (even though I now live outside the city). She is very professional, friendly and honest. Her staff and facility are also very nice and welcoming. I have found it pretty easy to schedule appointments and everytime I show up I am in the exam chair within 10 minutes. As far as dental work specifically, I have had several regular check-ups and one filling and have been very pleased with everything. I would definitely recommend Dr. Barkhodari.

T. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Naz saved my life! I’ve been afraid of the dentist for many years. My teeth were in really bad shape so my friend referred me to his new dentist on Union St. Before I could muster enough courage to make my first appointment, I received a voice mail from Monica asking me to call when I could, no pressure, completely understanding my fears and hesitations. I finally called her back and instantly became a fan. After my first consultation and cleaning, I went through a few appointments to get all of the infections out of my mouth. Naz wants you to look good, but overall health is most important to her. She set me up on a treatment plan that was very reasonable and produced results that have my friends and family raving about her work! My health and self-esteem has improved so much! The Union St. office is nice, easy to get to, and you don’t pay for the views. Monica is very comforting and professional, works with your insurance carrier, and will answer any questions that you are afraid to ask. Then there’s Dr. Barkhodari: Always works with me personally, remembers my sensitive spots, and I can’t wait to see her every time I’m scheduled. No more fear – and after 10 years of NOT smiling — now you can’t get me to keep my mouth shut!

Arian H. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I give Dr. Barkhodari 5 stars! I just started going to her for dental work and I absolutely love her! Every time I go to see her, we pick up our conversation from the last time I sat on the chair. She’s very attentive to my needs and is mindful of how I feel when she’s doing work on my teeth. I love how she explains everything. She makes the visit so comfortable it’s as if you found your long lost friend! The staff is very helpful too!

Michael P. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Barkhodari is a FABULOUS Dentist! She has ALWAYS come through for me in a wide variety of situations. Including squeezing me in the next day, when one of my teeth literally broke. Dr. B is both conservative and uses the latest technology for painless drilling and excellent cleaning and X-Rays. Plus she offers an awesome view of the Golden Gate Bridge from right from the chair! She makes the most comfortable night/ day guard to protect and prolong the life of my teeth. Dr. B. also employs a terrific hygienist and a very friendly Assistant. She has referred me to an equally amazing periodontist to extract a tooth and install a post that Dr. B could use to install a crown. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr. Barkhodari to all my friends.

Kari G. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Barkhodari is excellent! I am from Los Angeles and was looking for a dentist for my father. I searched and searched and interviewed and am sooo glad I found Dr. Barkhodari. She is professional, talented and does superb work. Thanks to Dr. Barkhodari’s artistry, knowledge and obvious skill, my father has a beautiful smile and new set of teeth. My father needed complete dentures with no existing measurements to work with, a challenge for any dentist. Dr. Barkhodari worked with dedication and care and produced a set of dentures that are amazing – they look like his natural teeth and were a testament to her training and skill. Very impressive. The office staff is friendly and accommodating, appointments are easily made and pricing is fair, honest and upfront. I have a great dentist in Los Angeles but finding an equally good one for my father in San Francisco had me worried – not anymore. THANK YOU Dr. Barkhodari! You truly are an excellent dentist with talent and skill. After all the research I did and the results I see – I can honestly recommend others visit this dental office.

Patrick T. from Walnut Creek, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Barkhodari and staff are truly incredible! They are always doing whatever it takes to make sure you are happy and comfortable. They never rush you and always give you the time to discuss and ask questions about preventative care, treatments, etc. It’s always patient first, never make you feel bad about what you haven’t done right or try to push unnecessary treatment/care. They have the latest state of the art technology and equipment and the view from the chair is amazing (Golden Gate Bridge). Dr. Barkhodari also remember details about your personal life/fam and always asks about my son. I consider her not only my dentist but a friend. Most importantly, I never leave there in pain 😉 It’s really hard to find a good doctor/dentist in this city, but you really can’t go wrong here. I wouldn’t take my family anywhere else.

Carla G. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Beautiful office, friendly staff and great dentist! We’ve been going to Dr. Barkhodari for a few years and couldn’t be happier. She is honest, knowledgeable and professional and so is her staff. My family wouldn’t go anywhere else. No one likes going to the dentist but somehow she makes it a pleasant experience!

Curtis J. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Barkhodari is smart, professional and cordial. She’s a pleasure to be around as well. She remembers my name and what we talked about last time, not that this is important but it makes me feel relaxed and cared for. Dr. Barkhodari is also an excellent dentist. She doesn’t attempt to scare or frighten me into good habits, she simply is honest and straightforward about my dental hygiene and health. Her staff are pleasant, timely and professional as well as excellent at what they do. I’ve never had an unpleasant experience and I have to say that’s a rare thing for a dentist. I came to Dr. Barkhodari via Groupon and am pleasantly surprised to say she has become my current dentist.

Maggie P. from Walnut Creek, CA (Source: Yelp)


I visited Dr. Barkhodari as my wife had been seeing her for the last several months. Switching dentists can be difficult but I felt like this was the smoothest transition that I’ve had. I really enjoyed everyone who worked on my teeth yesterday, they were all very sweet… despite learning that I have another cavity, ugh. She is conveniently located one block from my house and I will most certainly be going here for the foreseeable future based on my experience yesterday.

Matthew J. M. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went to Dr. Barkhodari to get a second opinion from another dentist that left me feeling rushed and with unanswered questions. Dr. Barkhodari was thorough in her explanation and set my mind at east. She explained my options for fillings, and I ended up switching to her to have the fillings done and made her my regular dentist. Her staff are wonderful and very professional. Karen always greets me with a smile. Their SMS reminder service is very helpful and quite frankly just kinda cool 🙂 I highly recommend Dr. Barkhodari and all her staff.

Diane D. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I haven’t been to an up to date facility, so coming here I was in total awe. They were very fast in checking patients in and thorough when it comes to checking first time clients. The view for each chair is very breath taking, especially for people who get nervous going in for a dental check up. Two thumbs up for the excellent service Dr. Barkhodari!!

Nick H. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Barkhodari for two years now, and I cannot say enough good things about her. She and her staff are friendly, professional, and skilled. She is also honest. In the past I have had dentists who were all about the up-sale. Not Barkhodari. If she recommends a procedure or treatment, rest assured: it is necessary. I will not always live in San Francisco, but I could see myself visiting periodically just so that I would able to retain Dr. Barkhodari as my dentist. I rarely post Yelp reviews, but decided to do so in this case in order to express just how much I appreciate her services.

Tara G. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Well, I was way overdo for a visit to the dentist and I wanted to choose a good one near my office because I knew I’d be back frequently. I did a search for a Delta Dental dentist in the Cow Hollow area and found Dr, Barkhodari. I immediately checked her reviews on Yelp and found her to be legit, so I booked. I have to say I was very impressed when I entered her office: nice wood floors, contemporary design, open lay out (I could see the immaculate rooms with dental chairs that faced the Gold Gate Bridge). Great first impression. It was even better when Jan, the super-nice office manager, escorted me to a computer to fill out my new patient paperwork (us Yelpers can appreciate these small technological advances). The doctor did just about everything, which I find to be rare these days. She looked at my x-rays, did a thorough exam where she noticed little things and made recommendations (retainer here, wisdom-tooth extraction there) and explained why that would benefit me but by no means pressured me into doing anything. Then SHE did my cleaning… being very conscientious of my sensitivities but also not letting me be a baby and getting it done. I have to say many dentists will let things slide (like that little cavity that was developing in my last x-ray in 07 that is now a big cavity), but Dr. Barkhodari does not seem like that type. She could even commiserate with some of my issues because she had the same dental experiences. A dentist that doesn’t have perfect teeth! I love it! All in all, I was as happy as someone who dislikes the dentist could be and I signed up for more before I left!

Michael S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dentists don’t come better than this. First, the view of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Palace of Fine Arts is spectacular. Second, she always plays good music. She’s really friendly and remembers all the details from our conversations. Third, she’s up with all the latest technology. As a tech geek, I’m constantly impressed with getting SMS reminders and having my records digitized, in 3d, and hanging out in cool software. I couldn’t recommend any health service provider as much. Totally worth it.
