Aaron J. from Silver Spring, MD (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr.Rai is by far the best Dentist I have came across. I have dental anxiety due to being forced to have dental work done when I was a teenager. Dr.Rai will make sure you are out of pain and in no pain while he is doing a procedure. His staff Zio & Annie are SUPER AMAZING and so knowledgeable. CLEAN OFFICE, SMELLS GREAT, LOOKS GREAT! Def recommend to my family & friends!!

I only wish I could have 10 stars to select! Dr. Rai is hands down the best Dentist I have ever seen. He is so knowledgeable in his field that you are more than believing of his diagnoses and follow up care. His gentle manner when you are in the chair is most assuring. Thanks to Dr. Rai ,I actually look forward to my dental appointments.!!! To be in Dr Rai’s hands -you can be assured of getting the best dental treatment.. The office is most friendly- very accommodating and a joy to deal with. It is easy to deal with everyone on Dr. Rai’s staff. The office is relaxing and can furnish bottled water on request. So happy my dental care is care free now. Elizabeth A.Saz

★★★★★

I have lived in DC for 10 years and have gone to a number of dentists over the years, but Smile Loft Bethesda is truly the ONLY dentist I trust. I have now seen them for 3 years and I could not recommend them enough. After seeing so many other dentists upselling you on thousands of dollars of preventative dental procedures, Smile Loft is the first honest, transparent dentist I have visited in DC. They are fast, community focused, easy to schedule appointments with, and very friendly. They use a water pik for cleaning, which provides a much calmer experience for patients with dentist anxiety – no scratching and scraping! The front office is only available a few times a week, but when you leave a message they always respond back. I would HIGHLY recommend this dentist office!

I’ve had a lot of trouble finding a good dental practice in the DC area. Dr. Rai changed that today! He was very prompt to start my appointment, thorough in his explanations and considerate of my comfort throughout the appointment. The entire staff was prompt and kind and the office is super high-tech. I highly recommend Smile Loft Bethesda if you’re looking for a great dental experience!

★★★★★

Dr Rai and his team did a great job with my dental procedure. They treat me kindly and were attentive throughout the procedure. It took less than an 1 hr to complete it. They gave me the instructions after the procedure so I can recover easily. Dr. Rai cares for his patients and if you have any question he always try to answer them. His team is very professional including the administrative staff.

★★★★★

Best dental experience I’ve ever had. Dr Rai has by far the best bedside manner and takes the time to really explain his recommendations and the things going on with your teeth and gums. To top it off even the rest of the staff is super pleasant, I feel like you always have to settle for one thing or another at other offices, when here its an entirely great experience! So glad I found this practice!!!

I absolutely love this place. Dr. Rai saved me from a major debacle from another dentist. He and his staff have always been so nice to me along with his financial advisor . They are always so kind and helpful. I would recommend them to anyone and I will not be going to anyone else. I always have a very pleasant experience when I go there.

★★★★★

When I first started going to the Smile Loft in Laurel I really did not have a nice smile do to poor teeth. They completely changed that for me. I was very nervous and a little scared and they were the nicest people ever, Dr. Rai is the most nicest person and really does care about the people he sees. The staff are all friendly and a great group of people. I definitely recommend them to anyone looking for help. They helped me in more ways than I can say.

★★★★★

Excellent service! Dr. Rai and Shabaz did a wonderful job. I was in and out in less that than expected, check in was super fast and not much to wait. Overall my experience was great and I’d recommend to anyone with dental needs. Dr. Rai and Shabaz made this dental visit a lot more comfortable than expected. Thank you Smile Loft!

★★★★★

I highly recommend this dentist office. There is rarely more than a 5 minute wait, and the staff is always very friendly, professional and competent. When I learned that the previous owner had passed away, I wasn’t sure what it would be like under new ownership. I was impressed with the smooth transition, and office makeover. I am a fan of the new text reminders and the new dentist as well.

From the moment I called as a first timer until after my first appointment, the Staff was EXCELLENT.

Thank you all for being so professional!!

Smile loft is the best dentist office I have ever been too. As someone who suffers from dental anxiety, I need a little extra patience and they’re great about. Nice people , very professional, clean well organized office. I moved and still drive over an hour to see them. Best dentists ever. Highly recommend.

★★★★★

They are amazing. My toddler loves getting his teeth cleaned and checked here. We had a prior dentist for his first ever dentist visit and he didn’t like them at all and it wasn’t just because it was his first dentist visit. At Smile Loft he loves it he cooperates very well they understand his own little language and its amazing.

I have been to numerous dentist over past several years trying to find a dentist that actually is all about what he advertises and never found one until yesterday. I am a person from the healthcare industry that is saddened by the down fall in compassion. Dr. Rai is the most compassionate physicians I have ever met and most importantly his compassion is 100% real!!! I have a complicated situation and he sat with me and explained every detail and made sure I understood. I’ve never had a dentist spend so much time explaining everything to me. I was ready to give up on Dentist and because of Dr. Rai he has gave me hope and most importantly inspiration. Dr. Rai actually cares about his patients health!! I can’t thank Dr. Rai enough for his time and compassion!!!! The staff at Dr. Rai’s office is very professional but more importantly they also have hearts filled with compassion! They listen and understand. They are all amazing! Courtney and I spoke and she made me feel important and it was real!! Dr. Rai and Courtney had me in tears because they care so much. Compassion to me is #1 and this office is #1!!!!

I love everything! Dr. Rai, Dr. Reddy, and the staff they care and make you feel comfortable and special. I highly recommend this practice. The team is phenomenal! I feel like I have been going there all my life and I’ve only been there four times. The second time I went they already knew who I was when I walked through the door. I didn’t even have to sign in. The wait time is non-existent, they are always ready. The office is clean and we’ll decorated. The dentistry is like art I am so happy I was referred. Dr. Rai and his team have made me happy and my smile even more better.

★★★★★

Best dental clinic and Dr Rai is the BEST Doc in town hands down, prompt service, no wait, very professional and what more to except than that he saved my 12yrs old root canal tooth with a retreat which in most cases is an extraction and implant. Very courteous and polite staff with amazing service. Thanks Dr Rai once again..

★★★★★

I love Dr. Rai. The office knows I’m literally terrified of the dentist (I absolutely hate going to the dentist). I hate the noises, the smells, the grinding sounds on your teeth…it’s like nails on a chalkboard. Aside from my own personal anxiety, I’ve had pleasant experiences with their office and everyone has been super friendly. Dr Rai has worked me into his schedule to accommodate me, and I’ve never had any issues getting an appt. My hygienist is also wonderful! She’s always really gentle and informative. I’m currently doing Invisalign’s and I feel reassured that I’ll be done with them soon because I’m over it (ha ha). Needless to say, I’d recommend this office to someone who is a little leery like myself, or just in general because they are great!

From the moment I walked in the door, I was welcomed by an amazing team of front desk staff who made sure My check-in experience was flawless! The environment was impeccable… very clean, beautiful decor, and very comfy furniture. Dr. Rai and Dr. A are both so personable and extremely friendly and made sure my experience was pain free!!! Seriously, I normally get a little anxiety in dental offices, but these docs made sure I was comfortable and safe while they perfected my smile ! They actually put me first as the patient and they actually took the time to make sure I understood all pre/post procedure care instructions…. ( and they didn’t try to hassle me for money)… Also, the dental assistant was so nice and gentle, she also did everything she could to make sure I had a good experience…100% satisfied, definitely the best dental experience I had in 30 years!

★★★★★

Dr Rai is a very skilled dentist. I find it so easy for him to work on my teeth. He takes great care in finding the right comfort level for his patients. His gentle hand assures one of the least after pain possible. The office staff could not be easier to deal with. They are courteous and prompt in their working with you. Making appointments as well as making sure you leave the office with any scripts prescribed is paramount before you exit. I would recommend Dr Rai to everyone. I actually now look forward to my appointments. Elizabeth Saz

Kimberly J. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Outstanding service. The office was clean and modern. They sent me pre-registration paper work which was very helpful. Perhaps the most important part of this visit was the dentist. He was not rough handed. You know that getting your annual teeth cleaning can either be torture or smooth. My experience was smooth. I plan to go back in 6 months to get my teeth cleaned again and also take advantage of Zoom lightening. Park in the back of the building. The nice lady at the desk gave me that tip.

★★★★★

My visit was awesome. Check in wasn’t a long process. The staff was courteous and professional, the office is clean and smells great. I’ve never in my life had a doctor/dentist with the bedside manner of Dr. Rai. Any fears that you may have go right out the window. He’s nice, approachable, professional and has a sense of humor. He shares information with you as well as your treatment plan and move forward from there. I’m definitely returning and this is my forever dentist.

★★★★★

Exceptional services and customer friendly. The entire team was very welcoming for my first appointment and each visit thereafter. The dental techs and the dentist was gentle and explained each procedure prior to the services. The front end staff followed up after each appointment to ensure my well being. It has been a great experience with this dentist office

★★★★★

Smile Loft of Laurel is an dental experience bare none!!!! A professional, clean and COVID aware and sensitive environment. My dental hygienist Katyln and my dental assistant Ali provide A1 service, listening to and identifying my needs. I hadn’t been to the dentist in some time because I am terrified of the dentist, they eased my fears and took excellent care of me; thank you guys

★★★★★

They talk to you about life while waiting for your mouth to go numb. Here, you’re treated like a human being who is being treated by human beings. It feels good to call or walk in and be recognized immediately by first name. Injections are painful but necessary. When I get a lidocaine injection there, someone taps on my shoulder to distract me from the pain. Their care is nuanced, personal, and professional. I highly recommend Smile Loft.

My mom made me an appointment to get my teeth cleaned here at Loft Smile, I couldn’t be more happier with my first time visit. I left with my teeth feeling SUPER clean and staff was very nice and went above and beyond. All I’ve been doing for the past days since my visit it bragging to everyone how clean my teeth feel. I’m so happy I chose to have came here, I referred my brother and also my boyfriend and I would recommend everyone to come here. My mom is in love with the service and staff here as well, is finally getting the smile she’s wanted for years!

First time having gone to the dentist in years, the experience and staff were both very enjoyable and pleasant. Had a cleaning done along with x-rays, was helped by Wilma who was very efficient and friendly! Will be having a follow up appointment set for the next couple of weeks, looking forward to returning!

This dentist practice is awesome. I first began more than 5 years ago visiting their practice in Laurel, MD and now I go to the Glen Burnie location. All the staff is professional with superb bedside manner. Since Covid, I have had a couple of visits. During my visits, all staff have exercise extreme safety measure to make me feel safe. I highly recommend this practice.

I always have a great experience when I go to see Dr. Rai. He is taking care of me in my later years when my mouth is just falling apart. I highly recommend him for family dentistry. I have a tooth with an abscess and am being seen during this lockdown time. They are dressed completely appropriately for the pandemic and are treating me with care.

My 4 yo daughter started a toothache during the pandemic. Dr. Rai respnded soon after I reached out, even though my daughter wasn’t his patient (I was). We went in same day. The office was very careful checking our temperature and everything. They also made my daughter comfortable through the appointment.

I would recommend this place to everyone. Only thing is he only works in laurel on Wednesday but hes the best I wish he would have more days there

Dr. Rai, Reddy, Dr. Suarez and staff provide courteous service and explain the process every step of the way. They make Dentistry not so scary. The paint choices and lovely artwork throughout the office, all add up to a relaxing experience and atmosphere as well. New and hygienic tech and equipment also makes the process of xrays, quick and safe. Highly recommend.
