This was a wonderful dentist to visit, I was not sure what to expect, but Dr. Farrohki was really kind, funny, and did a super thorough but not at all painful job during the teeth cleaning. I wish to come back here for all my dentist visits in the future.

Dr. Farrokhi is incredibly kind and knowledgable. Since I have moved a lot over the last six years, I have been to many different dentists, but she has been the best by far. The office is clean and beautiful, it is in a nice area, the staff are all really nice, and the actual work on my teeth (I had two cavity fillings) was so quick and painless. She teaches dentistry in addition to being a dentist and I truly feel like I am in the hands of an expert, she is just awesome, and I will come back as long as she practices.

Dr. Farina Farrokhi is the best dentist I could ask for. She is kind, thorough and incredibly intelligent. I have lived all over the world and no dentist has taken the time to effectively and efficiently address my TMJ the way she has. I have suffered for years from the aftermath of teeth grinding… even with a retainer. She found an appropriate and effective solution for me after one visit! Finally, I have a retainer that works for me and have not suffered from any discomfort! I look forward to seeing her for my follow-up

The most calm & relaxed experienced I have ever had at the dentist. The office atmosphere is great. Everybody is polite & professional. Office is modern & clean. Dr. Farrokhi answers all questions and dos not rush you. I recommend her to anyone who is looking for a good dentist.

This was my first checkup since the pandemic halted all non-essentials. I am obsessed with my teeth and 1 year felt like an eternity without a proper cleaning. Dr. Farrokhi and her staff were lovely, professional, courteous, and made me feel safe and at ease during these high stress and germ filled times. The facility was spotless, my OCD and chompers thank you.

I will never go to another dentist… Dr. Farrokhi is the Best! period. I know this because I have had other dentists throughout my life, but because I raised my kids in Maplewood I brought them to SO Family dentistry and as a result I too met Dr. Farrokhi. I switched when we moved here, and now I know that I know the difference they are stuck with me and my family. For specialists, Dr. Farrokhi has relationships with excellent doctors as well – I have had to have several surgeries so I am grateful for the referrals and the care I received from Dr. Farrokhi during the procedures and after.

Very gentle, caring and concerned along with Professionalism is what comes to mind about Dr Farrokhi and her staff. The office is nice and clean with a Vintage look but high Tech. Brass door handles, high mahogany ceiling fan with gentle lighting is just a small taste of elegance this office entails. Love that the office is seated in a homelike setting with trees and driveway not like the hustle and bustle of city life. Staff is fashionable and well kept reflecting the Dr who is “chic” herself. I’m happy I finally found someone I can relate to, who is humble and not haughty just because she knows her craft and is skilled. I highly recommend South Orange Family Dentistry where you’ll feel at home and not a “factory” for pulling teeth. Thanks and wish y’all the best!!!

Dr. FF has been my kids dentist since they had teeth. At 9 and 7 now they look forward to their check-ups and visiting the office that treats us like family! We love our dentist and I’m so thankful going here is a good experience for my children. The offices are extremely clean, modern and enjoyable to be in.

My family and I have been seeing Dr. Farrokhi for about 4 years now and she is just fantastic with patients, especially my young son! When he first went we found out he needed two root canals in his baby teeth. I was horrified and thought he would never want to go to the dentist again after the procedure. They were so good with him, that he wasn’t even phased and loves going to the dentist to this day. Everyone is wonderful there, Fanny is so friendly and helpful and Gina gives a great cleaning and so friendly as well. I always enjoy going too, which is saying alot!

We have known Dr Farrokhi for over 10 years at this point. We are truly lucky to have her as our children’s dentist as well. As always she goes above and beyond her duties . She takes the time and care explaining every detail about the procedure you are about to go through. My girls are so excited to see her and this feeling sticks and builds up a much welcomed trust in children as dentists are not something to be afraid of. You will find all women staff in this office who are kind, compassionate and professional. I am proud to support small woman owned businesses. We can not wait to see you soon again ladies.

Dr Farrokhi was great. She is thorough, methodically checking everything, which makes you feel comfortable that she will have a good grasp of things. I am a wimp for a lot of dentist things, and everything was effortless. Staff was thoughtful and very welcoming. Highly recommend

Dr. Farrokhi’s manner is calm, friendly, humorous, and professional. I hadn’t been to a dentist in about 8-9 years, and despite that the cleaning I received was the most gentle I’ve experienced. I also love the location and interior. It’s a single floor of a converted house, with private parking for patients in the back. The inside doesn’t feel like a dentist’s office at all, which immediately put me at ease.

My whole family has been going to Dr. Farrokhi since she took over the practice from Dr. Chenitz; I wouldn’t trust my mouth to anyone else. Dr. Farrokhi, Fanny and the rest of the crew run the office like a Swiss clock: professional, efficient, and with individual attention and care. The office and equipment is state of the art, and kept in immaculate condition. Very highly recommended.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Farrokhi, it was the most thorough dentist appointment I’ve ever had! She took her time, and I could tell that she cared, as opposed to just shuffling me through (which has been my experience with many other healthcare providers). Highly recommended, I will certainly be going back and referring family and friends as well!

Dr. Farrokhi is an excellent dentist and I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family! She is very friendly and warm, and takes the time to listen to any concerns you may have. She is also very knowledgeable and explains treatment options in detail. Her office staff is also very sweet! Such a nice group of people and I would highly recommend them!!

Dr.Farrokhi and her team have provided the best dental and compassionate care for my family of 6. Who knew that my 4 kids under 13 would enjoy a visit to the dentist? In fact my 6 year keeps asking when his next appointment is! It’s not just the wonderful bedside manner that keeps him happy but the fun little goodie bags and the treasure chest that he can dig into to get a toy! A big shout out to Gina who I adore and should thank her for listening to all my woes over the past 10 years and being so very cool to my kids! I get super excited to newbies in town who are asking for a great dentist. It feels good to be confident in your recommendation.

I love coming here, Dr Farrokhi, is very knowledgeable, and so personable. The staff is always very professional and friendly. You can talk to her about any issues you have with your teeth and she always will guide you down the right path and take good care of you. Highly recommended. Anytime anyone talks about their teeth, I advice them to visit my dentist.

I visited Dr. farrokhi’s office because I had an issue with a tooth and a friend had recommended her. When I called the office for an appointment they were very helpful and accommodating. The office visit was very pleasant. The place is very clean and the staff are helpful and nice. Dr. Farrokhi is excellent and caring. She told me what the problem was, provided a reasonable solution and took care of my pain. good experience.
