Absolutely terrific experience from meeting the doctor and her team to getting the tooth repaired. I feel very lucky to meet this doctor. Her staff is very professional and courteous and the doctor is very knowledgeable. The doctor went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. This was one of the best experience that I have ever had at the dentist office. This place is highly recommended.

Me and my husband are always happy to visit Dr Lazar. Everyone is welcoming and it always feels like we are visiting our family. They are very knowledgeable and their focus is on prevention: we always get an explanation of what is going to happen and what is the best way to care for our teeth. Our teeth never looked this beautiful. Thanks Dr Lazar and Team!

I’m 71 years old and have moved around a lot. As a result I’ve been to a lot of different dentists. Smiles By Design and Dr. Lazaar are the BEST! Dr. Lazaar and her entire staff clearly have their patients interests at the forefront. The preventative care and the necessary dental work are exceptional. She clearly discusses all options and only recommends procedures immediately necessary. My wife and I will stay with Dr. Lazaar forever!!

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


I’ve been a patient of Dr. Maye Lazaar for many years, and I must say, that she is the best dentist, and nicest person you could ever have the pleasure to meet. Her and her office staff are always so friendly, and compassionate. She takes the time to listen to your concerns, and does her best work to fix any problems you might have, and treats her patients with the utmost respect. She is very detailed oriented, and does a very good job. When I call to make an emergency appointment her office always finds a place to fit me in, and if it’s an emergency I always receive a call back immediately. Her Hygienist are very thorough, and gentle. The whole office staff have a very inviting and interactive social presence, and her office is very clean and calming, not to mention decorated beautifully. I would recommend Dr. Maye Lazaar to all of my friends and family.

I have been going to Smiles by Design Dentistry since over 3 years now for my dental care and without a doubt they are the best in the area. My entire experience right from checking-in to check up and cleaning has been delightful. The staff here is friendly and really professional when it comes to taking care of the patients. Dr Lazaar gives personal attention to each and every patient and has really helped in improving my overall dental health. I have recommended them to many friends of mine and will recommend anyone else looking for a good place for any dental car

Inka K. from Los Gatos, CA (Source: Yelp)


I simply love Dr. Lazar. I have been a client for around a year and would never change to another doctor. She is highly professional, very friendly and comforting. It is a pleasure to deal with and all the work she has done for me has always been of highest quality. Special thanks to Diana who assisted Dr. Lazar during my visits, I was impressed by her professionalism and by her kind attitude.

Ashoorina B. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


If I could give 10 stars i would! Dr. Maye is an amazing dentist! I agree with the previous post, she is very gentle and cares so much about her patients! I am not one who loves going to the dentist, i mean who really likes going to the dentist?! But with Dr. Maye I really do not feel any anxiety…she really, really cares about how her patients feel. If you are looking for a new dentist you’ve got to give her a try!

My family and I could not be happier with not only Dr. Lazaar, but the entire staff as well. The office feels warm and inviting from the second you walk in. From my initial check in, to the cleaning itself with her incredible hygienists, and finally to the check in with Dr. Lazaar herself at the end, I am always leaving with a smile on my face. Her work is amazing and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is on the hunt for new dental care.

Chris Powell (Source: Google)


I have been a patient for 30 years now. I cannot recommend them highly enough. I trust them with the health and well-being of my family without a doubt. The services that we have received over the years have been impeccable in quality as well as the longevity of all repairs or replacements. The staff is always available even on off days for any emergency which is very comforting because those situations usually happen at the worst time possible. Dr. Maye Lazaar is also so great with young children. I’ve taken my children to pediatric dentists before and had nothing but heartache because of the pain my children had to endure. Finally one day I said let’s go see my dentist and it was a home run. My kids had big smiles instead of tears and it’s all thanks to Dr. Maye Lazaar and their beautiful staff. Thank you so much and I hope that everyone will get a chance to see just how happy and satisfied you have made the whole family feel.

Arman B. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


Update: I’m grateful to have such a wonderful dentist. Dr. Lazaar and the team have gone to great lengths to make the office safe for everyone during the current COVID social distancing. There is a protocol in place even before you head there. You have to fill out a questionnaire in advance, call when you arrive, proceed up to the office, disinfect hands, get temp taken (NO CONTACT), and then you notice that the entire office is filled with these space age air filters (as if Dr. Lazaar has some secret connections to NASA or something). Anyhow, I can’t even begin to explain how comfortable and safe I felt knowing that the entire staff have spared no expense in making sure I feel that way. Thanks 🙂

Jackie D. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


Look no further if you’re looking for an all-around AMAZING dentist. My husband, son, daughter, and I have been going to Dr. Maye for about 8 years. Dr. Maye’s work is absolutely meticulous and perfect, and she is the most caring, gentle, and pleasant Dr. I’ve met. She listens very carefully and remembers the conversations and also ensures the information is well documented. Her honesty as well as attention to detail is so appreciated by all of us. You are treated as good as it gets from the time you set foot in the ‘Smiles by Design’ dentistry by the office manager, Lori and then all the hygienists, and of course the best of the best Dentist, Dr. Maye herself. They have the latest dentistry tools and devices, and most recently due to COVID, they have even invested further on sanitary devices. The office itself is designed and decorated beautiful which itself adds another notch to the whole experience. THANK YOU Dr. Maye and the entire staff for everything. You all ROCK!!!

My experience at Smiles By Design Dentistry is always superb. Dr. Lazar is an excellent dentist and the staff is friendly and professional. My hygienist Yasin was great at her work. The office is taking extra care during COVID-19 times, every room is equipped with special air purifiers. Really appreciate the extra precaution being taken.

Olga Z. from Santa Clara, CA (Source: Yelp)


I found Dr. Lazaar about half a year ago and I have loved coming to her ever since. After a lag in dental care, I had a fair few things I needed to get taken care of and Dr. Lazaar and her team helped me feel comfortable and calm the whole way through, so much so that I changed my insurance just to keep going there! I feel like the team takes special care to get to know their patients too, which is so nice compared to other clinics I have been to before. Special shoutouts to Vicky and Diane who are also awesome and make my visits even better.

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


Dr. Lazaar visited my 3 yr old girls’ preschool and they were so excited to get their first teeth cleaning by her. She explained everything to them before she did it and they cooperated wonderfully. They even said they had fun and are excited to go to the dentist again. They brush very well at home because she told them about the “sugar bugs” that are bad for their teeth. Coincidentally, a few days after our first visit, my 21 month old son fell on his front teeth on a Friday night. He damaged them badly and was in a lot of pain and we had to go to the ER. Panicked, my husband, called Dr. Lazaar to find out what to do because the ER doctors didn’t have much to say after ruling out head trauma. She actually came to the ER during the late night to examine him–something the ER nurses said they’ve never seen happen in 20 years of working there! She let us know that we needed to see a pediatric specialist who could xray the teeth and possibly put them back into place or pull them. My husband drove him up to San Francisco to a 24 hour clinic with oral surgeons and Dr. Lazaar stayed in contact with us via text throughout the night and early into the morning to make sure everything was going okay. He ended up not having any serious problems that required surgery, but he did have to have his front teeth pulled. We are so thankful that we met Dr. Lazaar and we are awed by such a caring person who is willing to go above and beyond on her personal time to help out a family who was freaking out about our son’s dental emergency. I would recommend her to anyone, young or old. She also has a beautiful office that is relaxing and pleasant, which is another bonus.

Beniel T. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


Absolutely awesome! I have never had anything less than a fantastic time during my visits to Dr. Maye Lazaar’s office. She is caring, genuine, and easy to get along with. Her procedures are seamless and quick, and her staff is always nothing short of positive. Both she and her staff are professional and knowledgeable, making every visit a truly positive experience (not to mention her new hi-tech office!). As the dentist that inspired me to pursue dentistry, I can’t ever imagine going to any dentist other than Dr. Maye. 5 stars!

Carmelo O. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love this place!! Dr. Lazaar is a great dentist. She never makes me feel bad for not flossing as often as I should, which in turn has led me to actually floss more often (as in every day now). She’s gentle when it comes to cleaning teeth. Recently, I had to get a filing and it was painless. Yeah, I hate the sound of the drill but she managed to numb me and about 10 minutes later she was all done. If you’re looking for a great, not good, but GREAT dentist, she’s the one. When you get there, tell em I sent you.

Jessica C. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


I worked with Dr. Lazaar as a dental assistant and I must say she is the sweetest, most kind, loving woman I ever had the pleasure working with. Her dentistry skills are stellar! As a dental assistant I’ve worked with a lot of dentists and Dr. Maye is by far the cream of the crop. Highly skilled as a dentist and a beautiful person in and out. I would not hesitate to work with her again anytime…Here’s hoping I do again someday

Lina Jisser (Source: Google)


I had the best dental cleaning experience with Yasin at Smiles by Design Dentistry. She was great! I highly recommend her. Dr Maye, she is the best dentist I have ever had. She is so professional, kind and very caring to her patients. My kids feel so comfortable at Smiles by Designs Dentistry. Thank you for Dr Maye and her great staff!!

I’ve been going here for many years now and I’ve always been more than satisfied with the service. They practically revived my teeth after realizing my old dentist wasn’t really doing what was needed for my teeth. They are very informative and kind whenever I go. Not only that, but they are super efficient. Let’s just say, I no longer dread going to the dentist like I did with my old one.

Ali R. from Campbell, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is a great place to go take care of your teeth! The team is very professional from the front desk, to cleaning, examining, and more severe dental work. They provide you solutions based on priority. I have to honestly say, Yasin the dental hygenist provided HANDS DOWN the best dental cleaning, xrays, and advice on prevention that I have ever received in my 3+ decades of visiting dentists all around the world. She has a special touch and truly cares for her patients. For the first time in my life, I have been motivated to keep my teeth extra clean and I owe that wholeheartedly to Yasin. Dr. Lazaar is a phenomenal dentist, and detail-oriented professional, and a genuinely kind soul. I had to get a number of things done and she really did a great job. I felt that I was in good and knowledgeable hands. Admittedly, going to the dentist is not my favorite thing to do. But at Dr. Lazaar’s office, I felt comfortable and safe throughout. They make you feel at home right at the door and explain everything that’s going on very well, sometimes even with visuals! Thanks to Dr. Lazaar, Yasin, and the rest of the team. I’ll see you again soon.

Victor A. from Santa Clara, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Maye Lazaar had been my dentist for some time when she was in San Jose. I had not been to her new location but I had an emergency and I phoned the office to get an appointment. She took the time to call me herself and knew who I was despite the fact that it had been years since I last saw her. I told her my situation and she made me several appointments for me. She did everything that she could possibly do to help me with my situation. She is an Angel at least to me she is. She is wonderful in what she does and also very patient. I would recommend her to everyone reading this. You will not go wrong with Dr. Maye Lazaar. I truly am glad that she is my dentist and I feel terrible that it took this long to come see her again but it will not be the last. Thank you Dr. Lazaar for everything that you’ve done for me. God Bless!

Connie S. from Santa Clara, CA (Source: Yelp)


Hi. I had to go into the office because my lower partial dentures broke. Christine was gentle and kind as she took the X-rays. Dr. Lazaar was kind and caring as she checked the X-rays and my mouth. My case is not easy. But Dr. Lazaar and her staff always show they have my best interest at heart. It was a positive experience and I really appreciate that, and them. It was the 1st time I met Lori (the new Admin) and she was wonderful to work with, too. I highly recommend Dr. Lazaar and everyone in her office. These are wonderful people who show they care every day.

We have been seeing Dr. Maye Lazaar for many years. We haven’t ever thought about looking for another dentist. Her work is always at the highest standards. She gives us professional advice and only performs necessary procedures. The cherry on top of the cake is her smile and friendliness with her clients. Her staff (hygienists and office manager) know us by name, care about us, and have the same friendly attitude of Dr. Lazaar. On top of that, the clinic is very elegant and has all new equipment. Three months after the shelter in place due to COVID-19, they re-opened the clinic with added precautionary measures, including large air filtering machines —placed near every dentist chair— that suck the air out and carry with it all aerosols. We never felt safer since the pandemic has started. My partner and I highly recommend Smiles by Design Dentistry.

I’ve been going to Dr. Lazaar for years now and I’ve never ever been disappointed! She is by far the best there is out there! Kind, caring and so knowledgeable. Her team is always warm and welcoming and I’ve always left there pleased with a brighter smile. Her hygienist, Yasin, ALWAYS makes sure I am comfortable and well taken care of! And she is the absolute sweetest and does the best work! Thank you Dr. Lazaar and team! 🙂

R S. from Los Gatos, CA (Source: Yelp)


Sunday, July 05, 2015 Hello, What a great source for dental heath right in our own backyard, minutes away from anywhere in Los Gatos and Campbell ! I am quite impressed by the first impression I got from visiting Dr. Lazaar. Professional, thorough, receptive, confident and resourceful. She fully explained the current status of my teeth, pointed out to problem areas that should have been addressed earlier, and recommended a long term plan to address cavities, bridge replacement, extraction, and fillings as needed, while pointing out insurance coverage, and possible out of pocket expenses. She uses state-of-the-art equipment and has a very friendly and professional staff, both in the front office and in her exam room. With my unique teeth conditions, i.e. 20-year old bridge that needs to be rebuilt from the foundation up, an implant, lurking cavities and re-crowning needs, not to mention night time teeth grinding habits, I am looking forward to many future visits to Dr. Maye Lazaar’s office, a top-notch state-of-the-art interior ambiance that adds so much to patient’s comfort and creates a relaxing and stress-free ambiance – job well done!! By the way, thank you so much for not bombarding me with noise full commercials on your big screen in the lobby, either!! Regards, R Sarraf

I wanted to keep smiling like I did in my 20’s. Had dealt with many dentists over years with varying orthodontic opinions, that only depleted money. After One consult with Dr. Lazaar, it was clear that her expertise and methodology will get me what i want. She was clear how she will accomplish my wishes, in lay-mans terms, none of the dentist jargon. Dr. Maye Lazaar has a light hand and genius handle on the understanding of dentistry. In cosmetics she analyses facial structure, and your lifestyle. She took the time to study my case. Explained the treatment clearly and gave me an effective plan that is applicable for me. There is no doubt that Dr. Lazaar is a genius of cosmetics and facial aesthetics. This review was due 4 months ago. I still take a flight from Austin.

N M. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I don’t usually write reviews but for Dr. Maye Lazaar I felt I needed too! She is truly amazing! She has the most gentle hands! Today I had a crown done and I remember in the passed going to other dentist office I would leave the place feeling very uncomfortable, my mouth swollen and I would be in pain for day! Well today I left her office like the way I came in! No pain, swelling or discomfort! I would recommend Dr. Lazaar to anyone! She makes going to the dentist easy! She is really talented!

Jamie M. from Benicia, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Maye Lazaar and her associates are so kind, caring, and professional. I can honestly say that I have had no other Dentist as genuine and meticulous as Maye Lazaar. I trust her opinion and advise completely, and always leave her office knowing that the work performed was absolutely necessary and done to perfection. I’d recommend her, and do recommend her, to everyone and anyone.

Kevnn Robinson (Source: Google)


EXCELLENT Dentist! GREAT hygienist and staff! Best I’ve ever had in my life. I was VERY afraid of the dentist for years. Finally I couldn’t ignore the pain. I was recommended to Dr Lazaar. When I arrived everyone was VERY supportive and couldn’t have been nicer. All my visits since then have gone perfectly. I’ll be coming to Dr Lazaar for a long time! 🙂

Donnetta Hagist (Source: Google)


Hands down the cleanest and most friendly dentist office I’ve ever been too! I actually loved every moment of my experience and would highly recommend this place! They’ve taken and implemented the CDC recommendation and I felt very comfortable! Plus my hygienist literally washed her hands 10 times during the hour I was there. I appreciate how they are taking such a proactive approach to everyone’s health and safety!

Henry B. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I got my front tooth back for Christmas. Dr Maye just finished installing my new implant I can bite on apples again. Let me tell you a little about her and her office staff and I hope i can do them justice Her office is decorated unlike other dental offices; it has a very homey feel to it with a fireplace under large flat screen TV and art works on every wall and comfortable lounge chairs and a coffee table. The staff is another big plus for this office because they are all kind and professional and always have a smile on their face. The communication from this office is very modern so you get the iMessages, SMS and Outlook invites (you have no excuse to miss your appointment because they send you every possible communication but the smoke and a blanket style message). Dr Lazaar is truly a gifted doctor with a gentle touch and knowledge of a seasoned physician. I am so proud to call her my family dentist (my whole family sees her) as well as my friend. I really recommend Dr Lazaar to anyone looking for a new dentist and believe me when I say that your dentist visits will be joyful from then on. Thank you for my front tooth and the birthday card and Christmas cards you sent me.

David Y. from Los Gatos, CA (Source: Yelp)


This was my first visit to Smiles By Design Dentistry and it just happened to be one of the best experiences. The beautiful Dr. Lazaar and her staff were both professional and friendly. Dr. Lazaar was incredibly patient and thorough and even took the time to answer every one of my questions. I would wholeheartedly recommend Smiles By Design and I look forward to my next appointment!

Nadine L. from Los Gatos, CA (Source: Yelp)


I moved to Los Gatos 4 years ago and kept our dentist where we used to live bc I didn’t think I could find anyone more capable than our former dentist. After scouring Yelp and asking friends, I decided to try Dr Lazaar at Smiles by Design and I can’t believe I waited so long! Dr Lazaar is incredbile and the front desk superhero, Lori, is just as incredible. What a team. I couldn’t be happier with the amazing care she has give my children and myself. Dr Lazaar always seems to be updating her practice with the newest and greatest treatment methods and I highly recomend giving her a try – you won’t be disapointed!

Ramiel Petros (Source: Google)


I’ve been a client at Smiles By Design since Dr. Lazaar took over the practice (at least 10 years now I imagine?). In that time she’s moved into a new state of the art office, and has continued to have a wonderful staff of hygienists. Dr. Lazaar is incredibly good at what she does, but more importantly to me, she has always walked me through the science of what was happening and how to prevent it from happening again. I used to need a yearly cavity filled, but after she took over haven’t had many issues. She highlights dental care and prevention as much as identify and fixing and problems. On year she noticed the start of a couple new cavities and instead of drilling and filling them, she put me on a special toothpaste that allowed the Newman to remineralize naturally before it got to the point of no return. I’ve lived in NYC the past three years and have looked for a local dentist but have not found one as professional, trustworthy, and good as Smiles by Design. It’s for these reasons (and many others) that I make an effort to go for a cleaning every time I’m in California. They always find a spot for me no matter my schedule or the short notice!

Drew G. from Mountain View, CA (Source: Yelp)


Whoa where do I begin. After having many different dentists in my lifetime, I can safely say that Dr. Lazaar is the best. To start, the office staff is extremely pleasant and works hard. The office is very clean and modern looking. Dr. Lazaar has the best of the best when it comes to equipment and X-rays. I have a major phobia of dentists and when she walks in, I know I am in good hands. She takes all the time she needs to ensure I am comfortable, safe, and relaxed. Her patience is greatly appreciated and I can tell she is truly passionate about what she is doing by her calm and professional chairside manner. She also doesn’t do any unnecessary work like my past dentists did. If you have a fear of the dentist she is the one you want to see.
