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

We love Nia Dentistry. Both of my kids are patients there, and both look forward to going to see Dr. Azi every six months. Both of my kids are also in braces there. Dr. Nia was phenomenal in keeping watch on my kids teeth. He only put the braces on when absolutely necessary. My husband and I never felt that any of this was unwarranted. My son had multiple bite problems, and they are now corrected! This will save him from surgery in the future. The staff, assistants, hygienist are all phenomenal as well. They really take the time to get to know the kids. I’ve never seen a single person at that office in a bad mood! We cannot recommend Nia enough!

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!

As a 46 year old, I was hesitant to get braces. Dr. Nia made the experience very easy – from consultation to retainers. The appointments are always on time. I’ve never had to wait and am in and out quickly (even when I lost a bracket and had an unscheduled visit). The staff is always friendly. The cost is affordable enough to have made it possible for myself and my daughter to have braces at the same time! I’m out of braces now and am very pleased with the results. It’s never to late to get braces!

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!

I’m a patient of Nia Pediatric Dentistry and Family Orthodontics. Nia is the best!! I have been going since January 2013. The whole time I’ve been going they have made me feel so comfortable with my braces. One thing Nia does that i really like is they tell me everything they are going to do my teeth to get them straight. What I really love about Nia is that they are so friendly to me.

The first time I made an appointment for an orthodontic consultation at Nia Pediatric Dentistry & Family Orthodontics I was extremely nervous. Being in and out of dental offices has always been relatively complicated throughout my lifetime. I didn’t know what to expect from a free orthodontic consultation, but my experience was over and beyond anything I could have possibly asked for. They were extremely thorough, included all of the x – rays that I needed, took multiple, high definition photographs, and sat down with me privately to discuss all of my options. I quickly became very comfortable, welcomed, and ensured that my interests were of genuine importance to Dr. Nia. I am 27 years old and about to get braces, there’s nothing exciting about that, but trusting those who are working with you is of utmost importance and I would highly recommend their office to anyone with children or to adults seeking orthodontic treatment.

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 😀

Nia Dentistry is the best pediatric dentistry around! We moved here over a year ago and I was worried about my kids finding a dentist that they both liked. Our first visit was amazing! Dr. Azi is so good with kids and you can tell she loves what she does. The staff is so friendly every time you come in and they always go the extra mile with the kids. My two girls love going to the dentist now even though they might need a tooth pulled or braces. It is a very comfortable place for them and that makes me One HAPPY Mama!!

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.

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!!!!

I love this dentist office. They are all so great with my children and there is no fear of going to the dentist-even from my 4 year old. I tell everyone I know to take their kids here. My middle one has had teeth pulled and just got braces and she still loves walking into this office. There are also local young people working here and I love seeing my former students as adults working in such a positive environment (Go Nora).

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

The staff are amazing! We’ve had several issues with my daughter’s teeth which have delayed braces. The staff was able to take care of the issues and get her braces on with ease providing me with a treatment plan and a payment plan that I understood and fit our family. I also have a 5 year old who is being treated and he loves coming to the dentist. Everyone there is there for kids. Kids notice and so do parents. I highly recommend this office.

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!!!

Both of my kids love this place. Dr. Nia and staff are fun and informative. I felt welcome and at ease. At no time did anyone make be feel ashamed about the condition of my kids teeth. I am very happy we chose this dentist! My daughter is excited about her braces

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

I’ve had my braces on for 10 months now and have noticed just SUCH a huge improvement. I get them off in 4-5 visits and am psyched. Dr.Azi Nia is an amazing orthodontist and so are his employees. The people at the front desk are also so very welcoming and kind. They’re easy to work with and look like they enjoy what they do. Thanks to everyone who make coming to Nia such a pleasant experience!

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!

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!

Friendly staff, very nice office, convenient hours and location, wonderful orthodontist- Dr. Farshid Nia, what more can you ask for? This office has it all. I only wish that it would have been available for our other 2 children. Our daughter has her new braces and we are confident that the end result will be spectacular. And she loved watching the TV installed in the ceiling during the process. Looking forward to the next years of service.

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 !

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!
