Renee .. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


So, I had my deep cleaning tdone today and the hygienist did a great job. She was very thorough and explained everything she was doing. She even check my blood pressure which I’ve never had done at a dental office before. To my surprise my blood pressure is high. So, I will follow up with my doctor. After.many months of neglect I finally got my teeth cleaned and they feel great. The ladies at the front desk and staff are very hospitable. Thanks, for getting back on track. See you in 3.

Excellent dental office with warm inviting atmosphere. The staff actually treats you with care while making sure you get what’s best for you and what you ask for. Primary dentist is friendly, personable and dedicated to making your smile stay healthy or get better. Prices are decent compared to other dentists in area. Recommended for all who are in need of dental care.

To be honest this is my second home. When I come here I literally feel like I’m coming to visit family. I’ve been coming here for the past few years and from day one I’ve been treated with the utmost care and respect. Going to the dentist is uncomfortable for most, but I promise you that you will feel the complete opposite with this staff. All of my fears of going to the dentist are long gone after becoming a patient at Sahara Dental. It’s actually a visit I look forward to.

Jack G. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


My kids are 14 and 12 and they actually enjoy the dentist’s office! The warm appeal and the friendly staff calms their nerves, and some times mine! I’ve never been a big fan of the dentists but I would recommend this place. The dental work is also very smooth, as my son got invisalign and Dr. Keshmiri was very helpful and gentle about the process.

My name is Darryl and i had a amazingly pleasant experience with my first visit. The whole staff was extremely professional and made me feel like family. I highly recommend visiting Sahara Dental for consultation and getting work done. I look forward to retuning in the near future. To the whole staff thank you again!

Hope A. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Everyone there is very professional. The people and atmosphere is welcoming and comfortable. They are thorough with their work and go over what you need and want to know. From Dr. L to Dr. K and the others, they’re all very nice and genuine. Most of all they are extremely good and knowledgeable at what they do. Nothing but love and appreciation for the Sahara Dental Center and the people.

Toshia T. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Friendly and very helpful office staff; Maria is my personal favorite! I’m very picky when it comes to choosing our family dentist simply because I’ve had such bad experiences with dentist and my large family in the past. The ladies in this office went above and beyond to verify both our dental insurances and they even billed both insurances 1st before charging us an out of pocket fee. Typically we were responsible to bill back the 2nd insurance for our out of pocket expense reimbursement. Most importantly Dr. Kashmiri gave me choices and understable information related to my treatment and kids treatment. I felt comfortable with their recommendations and treatment plan. Overall our experiences have been great! I highly recommend Sahara Dental.

I came to place based on the reviews originally. everyone here is amazing and very upbeat. They took real good care of me and gave me a fair price for all I needed done. I highly recommend this place to anyone unsure who to go to, cause these are the people to go to, friendly staff and excellent service, Im very happy with my teeth now Thank You Sahara Dental for treating me right and taking good care of my teeth

My 16-year-old daughter is a patient and she loves the doctor and I love the staff (especially Jessica) o i’ll p and also her doctor. It’s a very well organized, clean and safe office. The staff is professional, knowledgeable, and very friendly. Both the staff and the doctor take the time to clearly explain the procedures they will be doing on you. The office environment is calming, bright and cheerful. I would definitely recommend sahara dental to friends and family.

Jon C. from Westlake Village, CA (Source: Yelp)


5 stars isn’t enough for how amazing Sahara dental is. Not only was my procedure ENTIRELY pain free, but the staff was also so friendly and professional. Honestly, I’ve been to so many dentists in my life, but they’re the only office I truly felt like they listened to all my concerns and kept my health as priority #1. I highly recommend Dr. Keshmiri to anyone, most especially if you’re looking for a permanent dentist! I live in LA but I have made the drive to Vegas just for them! Seriously, they are one in a million!

Matt B. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


I had a dentist appointment today to repair my chip tooth from trying to open a beer bottle with my teeth. I know…I have no idea what I was thinking but it happened. Dr. Keshmiri was friendly and professional. She told me it was a good thing that I came to fix it early because a number of people wait until it gets infected and forced to loose the tooth. She was able to repair the damage in one visit with a white filling. Looks as good as new!

I’ve had the pleasure of getting my Invisalign here. The staff is extremely kind and was very helpful with the whole process. I’m almost done and I’m so happy with my results already! I also love how welcomed you feel once you enter the building! I five starred this place because of how -professional they are -friendly almost like family, they genuinely care about you -clean -chill ambience

Michelle P. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


I can’t even begin to Thank You enough for this team of such talented individuals. I am beyond the moon on the transformation they gave me (deep clean & gap bonding) to let me SMILE for the 1st time in YEARS with NO PAIN!! Their location is 100% clean (strict and enclosed individual rooms closed off to make you feel safe from Covid anxieties) & went above & beyond to make sure you feel comfortable!! You all are truly amazing. Thank you again.

Sherrimae B. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


I went in as a new patient and was pretty nervous. I never enjoyed the dentist office but going in there I felt so comfortable and welcomed. Jennifer, the manager,  was so professional and i can tell she enjoys making every one feel at home. I came in for a deep cleaning and my hygienist, Melissa, was one of the nicest ppl I’ve ever met. She’s so great. The whole staff was great and I look forward to coming in for more work. Thank you everyone at Sahara Dental!! 🙂

Naomi H. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


From filling out forms to being taken into the back office to be seen. This office is kind and very professional. Dr. Keshmiri is so nice and does an incredible job. They made sure to put a rush on my lab so that I could have my process done in a single day. They are amazing, I was grateful and so pleased with everyone’s readiness to assist. Even billing was explained so I was prepared and knew what was going on. Definitely recommend Sahara Dental Center.

Will B. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming to Sahara dental for 14yrs now and I continue to come back, because the staff is always so welcoming and addressing me by name which makes it a more personal experience. They are always so informative and pointing me in the right direction to have a healthy good looking smile. My favorite is the manager Jennifer. She is so helpful and accommodating to my busy schedule.

Kristin C. from Summerlin, Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Wow! Best experience and I’m a dental phobe!  I broke one of my front teeth off all the way to the gumline over the weekend and I look like a jack-o’-lantern. This needed to be fixed immediately so I can go out in public and do business. I made an appointment at absolute dental. They told me my tooth could not be saved and it would require a bridge at the expense of $3800 due in full -payment upfront right now. I left that office went home and spent a day online and on the phone when I called Sahara dental they told me to come in for a free consultation, I did and the dentist told me “let’s save that tooth !”  And he did! He also took care of a few missing fillings and gave me a temporary crown so I left the office looking amazing. I spent about a third and they are more than reasonable on payments if you can’t pay the whole thing. The office staff is professional and friendly. The office is very clean and very well run. They made time for me and I honestly felt no pain I cannot recommend this office enough!

They were incredibly helpful and talked over all the procedures, insurance costs and payments, proper brushing and flossing techniques, and were overall very informative and competent. The dentist who helped me was kind and made me comfortable even though any sort of doctor appointments normally make me nervous. I didn’t get anything done yet since this was just a checkup, but we’ll see how everything goes from here and hopefully my insurance will help me cover the costs of getting my teeth fixed.

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


I’m a bit of a worrier, so even after my sister recommended this office for me, i was still very, very skeptical after some of the reviews. Safe to say, the one star reviews don’t know what they’re on about! Very hygienic, Dr. K handled the work well and helped me understand the process of me getting my crown! Will be coming back 100%!

S. N. (Source: Google)


Felt very welcomed and safe, they were careful to follow procedures needed through this epidemic. They were also friendly very informative and let me know everything on what’s going on with my teeth. They didn’t force anything onto me and only suggested what they can do to better my dental health. Will definitely return.

Connor L. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


I’m going to be honest. Even after 40 years, I’m STILL quite scared of the dentist. And after finally listening to people and researching my dental office before I go, which is why I keep switching dentists. I was scared to be quite frank, as I have bad experiences with bad doctors. Thankfully, this office put all my fears to rest. The atmosphere was clean and seemed fairly new. Dr. Shiva was very informative and made sure I understood what was happening with my care. The staff was kind and the wait was little to none to the actual appointment. 12/10. Would recommend!

Aurea S. from North Sacramento, CA (Source: Yelp)


Thank you so much to Everyone at Sahara Dental. I am so so sorry but I can’t remember everyone’s name but to the ladies in the front and the ladies in the back! You really make the visit comfortable and inviting. To anyone searching theses reviews, don’t look anymore just make the call you will definitely have a great experience. Thank you for getting me on the road to a healthy smile!!!!

I just moved out here to Las Vegas and had a dental emergency. Sahara Dental was able to provide me immediate care and help with my problem which ended up needing a root canal operation. They were very polite and professional and helped me along the way to make sure I felt comfortable. Great business and great employees!

Sarahi Leyva (Source: Google)


I’m going to be honest I don’t ever leave reviews but the staff at this place is amazing! Everyone is so nice and they explain everything to you. I’ve never felt so comfortable at an appointment. Everyone and I mean everyone is amazing here thank you guys so much for making me feel so comfortable and appreciated.

Emmanuel C. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


I have not been to the dentist in years because I felt it was a waste of time or money. After having a tooth break off during a meal I panicked, searched yelp for a well rated business near my home. Wait time was minimal, the staff was friendly and patient (I asked a lot of questions). They helped reverse years of neglect on my teeth, and gave me tips on how to properly maintain a healthy mouth and prevent further problems. Prices seem fair and I’ve noticed results immediately. After my first visit at Sahara Dental, I changed my outlook of Dentists and dental work as a whole. They have earned my business and I plan to return again. Thank you!

Amir M. from Moorpark, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Keshmiri for a while now. I initially came to her for a cleaning a few years ago and was very impressed by the doctors knowledge, level of professionalism, the friendliness of the staff and overall experience. I have been coming here since. I highly recommend this office for all of your dental needs. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!

Ton B. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient at Sahara Dental Center for over 3 years.  Since my first visit to date; 3/31/2017, SDC has always provided excellent quality service. The entire Staff; to name a few Dr. Keshmiri, Dr. Legaspi, Jen, Aurora, Helen, Tawana, Jessalyn, are all so warmhearted and professional. From a routine cleaning, to an exam, filling,.etc…SDC will make you feel like family. With a great appointment reminder system in place, SDC gives you the assurance that your dental care isn’t neglected. I highly recommend Sahara Dental Center for anyone looking for professional quality dental care!!  “Kudos to SDC!!”

Rayne E. from North Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


After my appointment on the 19th of September, I had to come back for a filling. The following week, they did my filling, but I could not sleep well that night because of all the pain. The next morning, I gave them a call, and they squeezed me in for an appointment. They shaved down the filling because it was just slightly too high. It felt so much better, and they did it free of charge. Just in case, they sent an Ibuprofen prescription to my local Walgreens. They were great!

I started going to this office in 2012 when I was fresh out of college and finally had dental insurance. Even though I live clear across town now I will continue to go here because I’ve only had positive experiences. I get regular cleanings and I also did my Invisalign here. Everyone is super friendly and the hygienist and dentist have a great bedside manor so it doesn’t feel like a chore getting a cleaning. Also, they adjusted practices during Covid so everything feels extra hygienic and safe. If you’re looking for a new dental office I highly recommend Sahara Dental.

I’m a restaurant General Manager. The customer service here alone is worth the 5 stars. My dentist was wonderful. I has a filing and a tooth extract. Both seemless and painless. Waiting for the government to allow them to do sa deep cleaning. Not their fault. I will be hoping for a call when they are able.

Edward E. from North Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


I am afraid of the dentist. More so…NEEDLES! So I make up every excuse possible not to go. But eventually the excuses, the fear and the Orajel are replaced with incessant pain–Root Canal. Yikes! I called Sahara Dental based on a recommendation from a good friend who has lived in Las Vegas, NV for the last ten years. Dr. K was able to meet me the same day. The office was nice. It was clean, comfortable and modern. The staff was friendly. I’ve never had a dentist quite like Dr. K. She was remarkably skillful as I didn’t feel the needle piercing my mouth. Not that this experience was pleasant…it was a root canal! But as far as root canals are concerned this one went extremely well. I am glad I called. I only wished that I had called Sahara Dental sooner.

This was my first visit to this dentist. The women at the main entrance were very pleasant and helpful. The woman that took me in for x-rays and pictures explained everything she was doing, very gentle and took her time to make sure she got everything she needed. The doctor came in and went over everything with me, made sure I understood everything and was very polite. The last woman was someone from the office that goes over the next step and didn’t rush me or made me feel like I needed to decide immediately what my next step should be. She was extremely kind and helpful and worked with me on every matter. The entire staff at this office is very polite, respectful and did everything in a timely matter. I’m happy to have found this dentist and excited to continue working with them! Update: I’ve had a cleaning and some cavities filled since my first visit and nothing but positive energy, knowledgeable woman and respectful polite staff!

Krista B. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


I LOVE SAHARAH DENTAL! I had yet another great visit today. Every time I go there I feel like I’m hanging out with friends. The ladies at the front desk are amazing, the Dr’s and entire staff are always welcoming me with a smile, asking about my day and treat me with the upmost respect and professionalism. As someone that has had horrible experiences in the past at other offices I truly hit the jackpot finding this office. I never dread coming to get any work done and I have had my share! I highly reccomend this office to everyone! Top customer service and top technology. Thank you ladies and see you later for another cleaning!

Everyone here is very friendly and very attentive to my case. They always make me feel welcome. They are the best and I recommend them to anyone who needs to come to the dentist. From the beginning they adjusted to my budget and always tell me how everything is going. Thanks Jessie, Jen, Dr. K, Mrs. Becky, and everyone else. There’s so many to thank.

Maryline H. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Just had teeth whitening done! As I was going on a first date, a blind date, and I knew just how important the first impression I make. Sahara Dental’s staff seemed really professional and cared about my comfort. I had almost no wait in their office. The whole laser whitening procedure was explained to me. A short while later, they were done and I started getting compliments from that time forward on my smile. Wow, I have never seen my teeth so white. My date went well. I couldn’t be happier. It was well worth it. Thank you!
