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

Angie B. from Canton, GA (Source: Yelp)


I am very pleased with Nia! I took my son in for a cleaning and an orthodontics consult. EVERY OTHER DENTIST I’ve been to in the last 10 years has found some way to charge me above and beyond my insurance every.single.time I had an appointment. It was highway robbery……but not Nia. They performed the service I requested and did not hit me w/ “surprise” charges at the end. Their staff were all very pleasant and kind. My son has big anxiety about dentists (who doesn’t?!?) and the atmosphere alone put him immediately at ease. Their payment plan for braces was very reasonable and I felt like it was very well explained to me and even more importantly, they really explained what the “plan” is to fix my son’s smile. I’m so happy we found them!

Dr. Nia is always so friendly, precise, and he has the best bed side manner with children and their parents! He is never rushed; you get all the answers, with out feeling like he’s trying to hurry to the next patient. His staff is absolutely wonderful, so sweet, from the front desk to the assistants. They are always smiling and they always remember you, which definitely makes it feel like it’s a very homey office, instead of the atmosphere being too sterile .. Also the whole office is extremely clean!

We have had great experiences with Nia! My kid was four when we started seeing them and they have always taken great care of her on both the ortho and dentistry side. She is twelve now and we just started round two of braces. The first round Nia saved her from having to have oral surgery so needless to say we have been extremely happy with them! The staff is wonderful and it’s nice to see the same girls each time we go so I think they treat employees well because they stay! No need for a second opinion, they are honest and try to do what’s best for the kids. The dentist I used to use told me my kid had 4 cavities, wanted to schedule four separate appointments to fill them… I took her to Nia on recommendation without giving them her prior records just to see what they said. She didn’t have any cavities. They have never steered us wrong and have never suggested or wanted to do unnecessary treatments. I am thrilled we found them!

Nia dentistry: Amazing team of Doctors and the staff is awesome. I took my 6 year old autistic child (I was terrified) since he doesn’t like to be touch by strangers. Jessica was beyond amazing!!!! It was the first time EVER that anyone has been able to take X-rays to my child!!! Jessica was very loving and calmed him down and was able to take all the pictures with ease. The hygienist Emilee was very nice and patient with my child. I will only trust NIA and staff to take care of my 3 children’s dental needs. I will definitely recommend this practice to anyone looking for a beyond amazing dentist for their child. Trust me I am SUPER picky when it comes to my children’s needs.

This started out as a second opinion but instead Nia has become our daughter’s only dentist/orthodontist. The doctors are wonderful and take time to go over EVERYTHING very thoroughly. The technicians are all very personable and my daughter has responded well to all of them. They explain what she should do or shouldn’t do, and she learns something each time. Nia also has brought in great dental tech, using digital 3D imaging and computerized xrays. At her ‘old’ dentist, my daughter would leave uncomfortable and even getting her there was a huge battle. Now she doesn’t complain about going to the dentist and when we leave, she knows what to do for her own health. This was the best switch for care we could have made!

My husband and I took our 2 toddlers here for dentist appointments. The staff was great. Everyone was helpful and cheerful. The dental hygienists were knowledgeable and great with squirmy kids. The actual dentist sat and spoke with us as long as we needed answering any questions we had. We did not feel rushed or like just another patient. Overall it was a great experience.

Absolutely the best service and dental experience my family has had in a long time! I have 5 kids and and they were so gracious and kind with each one and extremely accommodating!! The staff is intentional to love on each child, and treat them with care! The Dr.’s professionalism, understanding, and willingness to communicate the process and purpose for treatment was phenomenal! I can’t say enough how kind and courteous each member of the staff was and how thankful I am to have found them!! The waiting room makes the wait effortless for littles with video games, movies, and toys to entertain! They have gone out of their way to show how much they care about their patients!

We loved it! My 2 year old daughter is terrified of any doctors office (too many shots for her well baby appointments) so I was a little weary when we first arrived. Within 5 minutes she was laughing and playing, while I was getting her checked in. All the staff were extremely friendly and really did a great job making us feel at ease. Considering this was her very first dentist appointment, I have to say that it went so much better than I could have hoped.

Amazing place for my little girl’s (3 yrs old) first appointment! Everyone was so nice and kid friendly making my daughter feel like she was playing. They have tv’s above the chair for her to watch during her cleaning, that she loved. Very clean, modern office and everything was ON TIME! This will definitely be my girls dentist!

Jeanette B. from Woodstock, GA (Source: Yelp)


My children LOVE Nia Pediatric Dentistry. Our previous dentist was fine and we had no complaints, but all 6 of my children have told me numerous times how they like Nia so much more. I guess we didn’t know what we were missing. From the office environment, to the staff, and of course the dentists themselves, we are all extremely satisfied with Nia Pediatric Dentistry. They go above and beyond to keep their patients comfortable and happy, while keeping the parents well informed. It is a great relationship all around 😀

Today was my first time here and I came with my 4yr old. My experience was amazing from the time I walked through the door until we left. The inside of the site is clean and beautiful. They have interactive games in the waiting area for the children. They also offer free coffee (which is great for me, I love coffee). The staff at the front desk were very nice and prompt. We were seen right away, right after filling out the new patients paper work. All the staff in the operations area were nice and they gave everyone their attention, they didn’t just limit their attention to the patient they were seeing. They were very friendly and engaged in conversation. All the staff truly cares about the children and also the parents. I’m glad I choice this place, especially being new to Canton area and new to GA all together. My daughters favorite part was that she got to watch Moana while getting her teeth cleaned.

Courtney M. from Canton, GA (Source: Yelp)


The most amazing place ever! My children love the doctors and actually WANT to go to their appointments!!!!!!! I couldn’t have wished for a more perfect place to take my kids!!!!!! TVs in each room, headphones, and character designed rooms. Play area in the waiting room, a video game area for the older kids, and a photo booth area the kids can dress up and take pics! They’re amazing!!!!

May H. from Canton, GA (Source: Yelp)


What can I say except the service here is exceptional. I have been taking my now 5 year old here for a couple of years now and he always leaves happy and excited about his experience. Today was his 6 month cleaning and also my 2 year olds very first dental appointment and cleaning. Needless to say, they made both my little ones feel comfortable and happy. No tears!!!! Thank you Nia Pediatric for always taking care of my little ones.

Kodedra D. from Greensboro, NC (Source: Yelp)


I just recently moved to GA from VA and was very concerned about finding a good dentist for my 2 girls. I found this dentist office in a medical book and from the time I came through the door my girls and I were warmly received. The customer service at the front desk is impeccable and the wonderful style and absolute professionalism shown by both Nia and Amanda were to be commended. You guys have taken away every worry or concern I may have had about gaining a new dentist for my girls. We love you all and be blessed!!!!

Great staff very professional, and at the same time they love to have fun. Very relaxing environment. I would recommend Nia pediatric dentistry to anybody hands-down. My granddaughter is getting braces today!! Easy payment options.

Natalie W. from Canton, GA (Source: Yelp)


I can’t say enough about this dentist office. My 3 children go there and love their visits. I completely trust their treatment plans and love that the orthodontist didn’t push a set of braces on my son until he was 13 to see if his jaw widened. They’re not just trying to do unnecessary treatments to benefit their offices. From the front office, to the assistants and then dentist & orthodontist – they’re all great!

I feel so happy to have found this dentist for my son, super nice and welcoming staff. I have been trying for my son to finish the dentist work he needs for the last couple of months and his previous dentist office which his been going forever couldn’t do it, my son would get extremely nervous, impatient and they wouldn’t let me go with him FYI (I will never go back to Perimiter Dentistry sandy springs) Dr Nia and I did not get her name were amazing with my son today. He did not once move or gave any trouble instead he was laughing and let them do their work!!! Thank you so much

I have twin boys, age 6, both Autism. I was worried about starting a new dentist especially when one doesn’t do well with major changes. They women were fantastic, they didn’t get bothered by my sons walking into their space while I did the paperwork. They assured me he was fine. Moments like this always make me tense up. Then off to the cleanings and x Ray’s. Both did great. The women were all patient with them and not 1 meltdown, I was actually able to sit and watch for a change. Best visit ever. Very kid friendly environment. Love our new place.

Kelly N. from Canton, GA (Source: Yelp)


I have three boys and have been to 3-4 different dentists around Woodstock/Canton. i have to say that this is the best one we have found. It is a smaller office with one pediatric dentist (her husband is the orthodontist) and a small staff. They are all wonderful and treat my boys like their own. The dentist herself is so sweet and my boys love her. This is also one of the few dentists that allow you to go back with your child no matter what, although my oldest feels so comfortable, he doesn’t need me anymore. I feel like so many dentists today are just trying to get you to pay for unnecessary procedures and even “inventing” cavities. I trust this place 100% and I’m so glad we found it

Susan I. from Canton, GA (Source: Yelp)


Without hesitation I can honestly say my kids have had the best experience here. The staff makes then kids feel comfortable in their atmosphere, but most importantly the dentist (Dr. Azi) is patient and explains to the kids in terms they understand to make them feel that much more comfortable during her exam and procedures. We are also about to move forward with braces due to being a patient of the practice for the past 1.5 years. I have been on 2 ortho consults and Dr. Nia and his team have been the most thorough in their consult as well as very fair pricing. Highly recommend!!!

We LOVE Nia!! all the staff is absolutely wonderful with my 1.5 year old son! he is so comfortable with them he sits real still while he has his cleaning and exam. Miss Stephanie & Erin are amazing!!! I can’t say enough good things about this office

Dr. Nia and his staff are Moran and wonderful! Dr. Nina I saved us from other orthodontists who wanted to pull My grandson’s teeth to make his teeth move easier. After two years my grandsons snarly smile is a beautiful one with all his teeth and a manly jaw line! We love them!

Could not be more Pleased. Always so so kind and they are just amazing with kids. We came to Nia’s after a horrific experience at a different practice. They were so sympathetic and kind. Walked me through everything and explained things very well. Thankful to have found them. All four of my boys go here, ranging from ages 14-6

Veronica Sitterding (Source: Google)


Hands down the best pediatric dentist I have ever used and I have been to about 4 practices with my children (ranging in age from 14-1). I have not had to wait any time I have been there which is SO refreshing considering the last office I would wait a minimum of 45-1 hr to be called back for cleanings. Everyone is SO nice and reassuring. My kids range in age and they do everything they can to ease them and help them to have a pleasant experience. I can’t say enough about how amazing they are and strongly suggest trying this office! You will not be disappointed 🙂

My 5 year old daughter had her first visit at Nia Pediatrics yesterday and she has not stopped talking about how much fun she had at the dentist!!! I am in the dental field myself so my expectations are very high, I must say this office is spectacular!! The Dr and her staff were all very nice and made my daughter feel comfortable. From the moment we walked in, we felt at home! Thank you Nia Pediatrics for being so AMAZING!! You guys rock!

Starlene P. from Dawsonville, GA (Source: Yelp)


I’m so thankful to have finally (this is our third) found a pediatric dentist office for my boys! Everyone in the office gives wonderful customer service. All of the steps of the appointment (scheduling the appointment, registering at the front desk, cleaning by the hygentist and seeing the doctor) were awesome experiences. I will definitely recommend Nia to all of my friends!

I 100% Love this Dentistry, we have always gone to the canton location but they are always awesome to us. lol 4 year old son calls them the tooth fairy. We were referred here after several bad experiences at other Dentistry offices.. one even refusing to treat my daughter once reading her paperwork and seeing she had epilepsy. Nia Pediatric Dentistry is a breath of fresh air and I Can not Thank them enough ! Yes I highly recommend them !

I took my daughter in for a consultation for braces and left with a new dentist & her braces on. Nia makes you feel like they truly care about you from the time you walk in the door all the way up to the follow up & after care. I’m not easy to sell and for the most part I am a pretty skeptical person but Nia made us feel so at home that now we’re wishing the whole family could go there and not just the minors lol!

My children have been coming to Nia for 8 years. I am so thankful we found Nia. They are good with my children, and are very professional. All of the employs truly care about my children’s dental health. Dr. Nia has helped us to navigate through some sticky situations, and I appreciate him. We have, since we starting here, moved about an hour a half away, but still choose to come to Nia. We love Nia!

Tabatha M. from Ball Ground, GA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been using Nia for about 2 years and me and my kids absolutely love both doctors. At first, we just used the practice for general dentistry, but my son got braces a month ago. The time and patience both doctors and staff use with children is amazing. The way everyone explains what they are doing before they do it helps with the comfort level for the kids. If you are looking for a pediatric dentist and orthodontist, you will not be disappointed to come here! We just went for a visit yesterday and my 10 year old daughter was telling me how much she liked her dentist. AMAZING GROUP!

Cari W. from Canton, GA (Source: Yelp)


My 12 year old just started with braces inDecember. We have been happy since day one. We had our consult. In Aug. and Dr. Nia was in no way pushy about getting braces on “right away” like most other Orthos were. He gave me his opinion, his plan and let me feel comfortable about our decision to wait a little longer. I love his honesty. He is very straight forward with the children and parents about expectations. Today we explored the dental side of this practice. Dr. Nia turned a stressful,anxious worrisome tooth extraction into a simple, easy “I did it, and it wasn’t bad” moment for my child! Thank you to both Dr. Nias !

Lisa S Davis (Source: Facebook)


My daughter was worried going to a new place. We had the most wonderful experience. Erin at the front desk was awesome and so sweet. After Dr. Nia examined my daughter and spoke with us, Crystal went over everything we needed to know and was so sweet and caring. We look forward to getting to know the staff there as we take the braces journey over the next 2 years

I have been going to Nia Orthodontics for the past 4 months or so. So far I only had great experiences. Nia Orthodontics will definitely be in my family for many years. Very clean and friendly place. Thank you Dr. Nia and Thays for answering all of my questions and concerns. I felt very comfortable and secured with Thays translating very professional. It was great having that! Once again thank you for making my experiences a tremendous one!

Nancy P. from Canton, GA (Source: Yelp)


We have been going to Nia for over five years now and I could not be happier with the entire staff and both Dr. Nias. We are always greeted with a smile. Everyone is ultra professional and make my kids experience very pleasant. Our wait time is short. Their services are very reasonable and they truly care about the results. My oldest had braces five years ago and they are still making sure her teeth are straight. There is no reason to go anywhere else!
