I brought my 8 year old grandson here about a year ago he needed and extraction . The dentist that saw him was very kind and polite and so gentle . while me and his parents where getting overwhelmed thinking about the extraction and the fight my grandson would put up before the procedure was done it was all over with . She was very gentle and took time out to reassure both the child and the parents standing in the doorway appreciate the professionalism and care

I can definitely see why they have such good reviews. This office was referred to me by a friend after a traumatic experience with my previous dentist. My first visit was for an emergency tooth extraction. The dentist and hygienist who worked with me were professional, kind, understanding, and patient. The dentist sat down with me and told me about what my options were and told me what she thought we should do. She was tactful and calm with me, and did everything in her power to calm me down. Honestly, I have enough dental anxiety that the only way I could be calm during a visit is if I’m sedated, and I didn’t have enough time between my call and the visit to get the medication for that. The website says it is something they offer, and I’ll have to ask. They put on soothing ocean sounds, they were calm and cheered me on the whole way, they spoke to me encouragingly, laid things out easily, and were overall incredibly professional and kind through the whole experience. I plan to call back and set up a plan to get the rest of my dental work done. I really love this office. The receptionists are on top of things and very thorough. I would recommend this office to everyone I speak to!

★★★★★

Mama: We have been going to the office more than 10 years, and, we continue to go after moving away more than 1 h driving distance. We have not found a place with comparable quality of work, nice treatment from clerk to the doctor. And, Drs. are very fast, precise and thorough. We have never experienced anything negative after root canals, implants extractions, and tons of fillings. To give just a detail, we brought our 6 year old girl, the Dr. did three cavities, pulled a baby tooth, and we have not heard a cry. All we heard Dr. singing children songs to her! Girl: I really like the TV in the kids room while waiting for my mama and papa. Boy: I don’t like any dentist! StarBrite would be the only one if I have to go! Papa: Willing to commute 100 miles before I try another one.

Dr. Lokhandwala is not only an excellent dentist but she truly cares about the long-term outcome of her work. I needed a molar implant. I paid out of pocket since many insurances don’t cover. She gives a discount if you are not insured. Not sure what happened but about 6 years later post where the molar attaches to the jaw was fractured. It could of been something hard I ate, but I was not aware it had fractured because there was enough to hold it in place. A routine cleaning of my teeth with my other dentist discovered the problem. When I came back to Dr. Lokhandwala, they found the problem. I was given a discount again, though it was still an expensive procedure. I now have my new implant and I will watch out what I eat on that side. Dr. told me even eating often almonds and seeds may cause fracture since the post does not “give”. No I will be aware.

I moved to the Bay area fall 2020 and had to begin the search for a new dentist immediately since I had pain in a molar tooth. Judy was able to schedule me for an appointment quickly for a filling and a cleaning. They were so professional during that experience that I asked about my invisalign options too. Dr. L talked me through what invisalign could do for me and pointed out things that it couldn’t fix so that I had realistic expectations. I’m currently on tray 7 out of 10 and am so happy with the adjustments so far! Everyone in the office has been so professional and kind from the front desk to assistants and both Dr. L and Dr. T. I would recommend their office to anyone, especially during Covid-19 as the entire office has been excellent about safety protocols.

★★★★★

I have been going to StarBrite since the last 9-10 years. As always they have a friendly staff and provide a very professional dental care. They have the latest state of the art equipment and techniques, whether its a complex case like an implant or as simple as a routine cleaning Doctor Munira Lokhandwala has always gone way above and beyond, we are very happy that that my family and friends have chosen StarBrite, simply the best!

Carmee R. from Hayward, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I saw Dr. Lokhandwala for an emergency appointment. I broke off my tooth eating some hard candy the night. They made an appointment to see someone the following day. I didn’t have to wait long at all .I was very satisfied with the service they provided and their expertise. Dr. Lokhandwala did an excellent job on repairing my tooth. Thank you StarBrite staff

★★★★★

Last year I lost my molar due to impacted wisdom tooth and I preferred StarBrite Dental for the molar implant procedure. The whole process was meticulous, high quality, affordable and comfortable. I must appreciate Dr. Lokhandwala and her team for the seamless experience that I had for my dental implant. Based on my experience, I would certainly recommend recommend StarBrite Dental Fremont CA to friends and family.

My experience at StarBrite Dental was Excellent! The staff is very professional and eager to meet your every need without exception.The Dentist made sure I was comfortable and explained all work in detail. Believe this, I felt no pain at all!! Even injections were pain free. 5 Stars without a doubt. If you are searching for a Dentist, I recommend this office 100%. See for yourself.

★★★★★

You may recall from my previous posts that I’m sincerely, genuinely afraid of having any kind of dental procedures. Previous experiences gave ‘trust’ permission to freedom. Amy’s clinical support brings exceptional enhancements to the practice. I felt no pain during Dr. Gavi’s administration of local anesthetic. Afterwards, although having a busy schedule, Dr. Munira came into my bay, checked and ensured there were no issues with my recent work. Without pain (Dr. Gavi’s prevention), Dr. Munira continued to fill a cavity, performed deep scaling around ‘that’ tooth. Guess what? After a few minutes (seemingly) my uneventful dental procedure was over! Dr. Munira is amazing! It’s clear that StarBrite Dental is the perfect place to have all dental procedures. Dr. Munira and her team are exceptional experts. Including those mentioned above, Janice’s professional managing oversight integrates Navpreet’s charisma to support StarBrite Dental as the best dental practice in the Bay Area. Reasonable costs with outstanding service supersede expectations. Meet me at the front desk at StarBrite Dental practice.You’ll be delighted you didn’t sacrifice your dental health.

Dr. Munira L and her staff are a class above other dentists. I always got an impression that my needs are put first. I never was prescribed any treatment that I didn’t need, something that dentists do often. Right from scheduling, treatment to post-treatment and follow-ups, I see great quality of care. A lot of my friends, many of her regulars also have a lot of trust in this clinic’s care

★★★★★

The facility is always clean and tidy. The staff is always welcoming. In this new climate of social distancing, I appreciated the appointment updates via text or call, as well as the arrival process. I was especially thankful to receive schedule delay notifications, which shows how considerate they are of other’s time. Their added personal protective gear, despite how uncomfortable it may be to perform, displays the level of care and safety they have for involved parties. I appreciate their thoughtfulness for the staff, patients and family during this trying time!

My girls and I have been going here for the past 10+ years.  Friendly and professional staff make going to this dentist an enjoyable experience.  We are very happy with the service and will continue to go this dental practice for a long time.  Dr. Munira is honest and gave me best options for my dental needs. I highly recommend StarBrite Dental.

Gregory P. from Oakland, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

What a difference an update makes!  I seriously complained about the miserable experience I had last Spring.  Dr. Munira called me within a day and discussed the problems intelligently.  But I wasn’t really mollified, so i said: “maybe i’ll come back in 6 months, but I’m not ready now to recommit to your practice.”  Out of inertia and not knowing a good dentist in Berkeley, I reconsidered and got an appointment for yesterday in the morning.  Everything was great: the oral hygenist who did the first part of the cleaning, then the dentist who did the deep cleaning were: informed, agile, friendly, funny, responsive and adept.  It was great.  So now I’m back with this practice for some time.  Thanks!!

Just having my second implant by Dr. Lokhandwala, who graciously came to the office specially to take care of the final stage out of her normal hours in the office just to finalize the implant before my knee surgery so that I didn’t go under the scalpel with any removable prosthesis. As with the former one, the crown fits precisely with the adjacent teeth and the feeling when masticating is as if he natural tooth was still there. I don’t mind driving more than 1.5 hours on mountain roads and cross the bay to get the kind of dedicated, knowledgeable, and affordable treatment Dr. Lokhandwala provides. Thank you! Taruno

★★★★★

I don’t usually write reviews but since I dread going to a dentist, I have to write this review. They do an amazing job! The front desk is friendly and I have been for three appointments now and never had to wait more than 5-10 minutes to get my number. I came here for one oral examination and two deep cleaning appointments and it was so smooth. I was so scared at first looking at all the deep cleaning videos but Dr. Tarik (I hope I spelled it right) made it such a great experience for me. She is so gental and comforting. Very understanding towards her patients and makes sure the process goes as smooth as possible. Dr. Munira and Dr. Tarik gave me some great tips to help my gums heal faster and how to take care of my teeth afterwards. I’m coming back for a crown soon and I’m more excited than scared for my appointment. I will highly recommend this place to anyone who’s scared of dentist appointments. They really are awesome! And I feel so much better after my deep cleaning. Great job! Keep up the good work.

I love this place! I am fortunate to have found them when I did! I had been going to my primary dentist for 15 years but their service was detreating; subsequently, my teeth were too! As a result of my teeth hurting and not getting any better, I began the search for a new dentist and found StarBrite Dental on the web and decided to give them a try two years ago. It was a long road to get my smile back into shape but they did it, and I am very happy with them! They have done everything to my mouth up-to and including implants. I take their advice and just follow it because they know what they are doing! My wife and daughter are also StarBrite Dental patient!

I’ve been visiting StarBrite Dental for around a year and the experience has been very good. Dr. Lokhandwala is very good and has an awesome staff who make you feel comfortable. I had my wisdom tooth extracted last year and it was a breeze despite I having a bit of apprehension of how it will go…I would highly recommend to visit Starbrite if you’re looking for the best dental care for your teeth in Fremont, CA.

StarBite is simply the best dental office I have ever visited. Employees are super friendly, professional and management clearly leads by good example and I believe values its employees. The place is super clean and they go the extra mile in sanitation and public safety. I love every single person I interacted with in this office. They should consider a secondary business of teacher dental places how to do business.

★★★★★

just got back from my second appointment with this office and team and let me tell you i was not let down . the office is always clean and quiet . staff is always VERY friendly , respectul and attentive to your needs or questions. my most recent visit was to remove old work from a previous dentist . i anticipated i would pay so much out of pocket due to not having insurance and that the procedure itself would take atleast two hours . but to my very big surprise the pricing and length of time for the procedure (15 mins) was very much appreciated . literally the best pricing and care i have had EVER visiting a dental office . i am no longer scared of going to the dentist thanks to star brite dental and its wonderful/professional team. thank you for starting me on my new journey !

Dr. Lokhandwala has been my dentist since 2008 when I was looking for porcelain veneers. I had consulted with several other dentists who tried to falsely convince me that I needed 6-8 of my upper teeth veneered to get a “natural appearance”. Dr. Lokhandwala assured me that only my front 4 teeth would be necessary to enhance my natural teeth so I immediately trusted and respected her honesty and integrity. I could also tell her from humble confidence, vast knowledge and skill set, professionalism, and patient portfolio that she was an EXCELLENT cosmetic and restorative dentist. My results exceeded my expectations and I was ecstatic w/how perfect yet completely natural-looking my veneers were! She blended the shape, color, and alignment w/my other teeth so well that I literally could not tell the difference and neither could the people who complimented me on my teeth over the years. My veneers held up well for over 12 years but due to teeth clenching/eating something hard, I have had a couple of veneers slightly chip and I would call her office in a panic. But each time, her amazing and understanding staff would get direct permission from Dr. Lokhandwala to squeeze me into her tight schedule on the SAME DAY and she would quickly and expertly patch my veneers. Thanking her for accommodating me and complimenting her masterful work, she was always humble about it. Upon a routine cleaning one year, Dr. Lokhandwala warned me that a brown spot on my molar would form into a cavity if I was not diligent w/my dental hygiene. I asked if she should preemptively repair that tooth and she said it was unnecessary, again proving she is not profit-driven but is ethical and genuinely cares about her patients. I absolutely recommend the highly-respected and experienced (25 years of practice) Dr. Lokhandwala and will forever be a patient of hers!

I have been visiting Dr. Lokhandwala since the last 9 years and have always been very satisfied with their service and expertise. My son Ahmed was having pain in his front (2) teeth (temporary) they were coming off, with out any hesitation I called StarBrite and their staff acknowledged the emergency and booked Dr. Lokhandwala for an appointment. She and her staff are always very professional and always take the time to explain everything. My son got to watch TV while having his teeth worked on and was happy coming out, highly recommended for children! Munira Lokhandwala is simply the best dentist in the bay area!

My review is two fold: 1. Fear of dental procedures: After an episode where the anesthesia stopped working during my C-section, the thought of anesthesia began terrifying me. I have been going to Starbrite for a few years now but this was the first time I had to replace my crown and get anesthesia since my traumatic experience with the c-section. The staff was so kind, understanding and caring. They checked in with me constantly, and did everything they could to help me have a better experience. I was humbled by how much they truly cared about me and how I felt during the procedure. They ended up finding a work around so I didn’t have to replace the crown yet, as this allowed me some more time to process my fear of anesthesia before I need to return and do the true procedure. 2. Children check ups: For routine check ups, we go as a family and everyone is very sweet with my 5 and 2 year olds. There is a TV on the ceiling that helps distract the kids, and they give them a little toy at the end. My 5 year old was very curious about her permanent teeth and the dentist went back into the system to show my 5 year old her teeth that had not cut through yet. My 2 year old keeps asking when we will go back to the dentist. I really recommend them for any families with little ones and/or people with any sort of anxiety related to dentist visits.

I had veneers done on my 2 front teeth from another dentist 18 months prior. Not long after they were installed, my right-front veneer cracked and actually chipped away from the top of the tooth at the gums. I was obviously reluctant to go back to the same dentist to have her fix the broken veneer. My wife saw StarBrite Dental in Fremont and found that they had good reviews. Let me tell you, I have not had great experiences with dentists ever since I broke my 2 front teeth at the age of 6. Dr. Lokhandwala and her staff were so courteous and friendly that I immediately felt comfortable. I went into the appointment thinking they would take some x-rays, pictures, molds, etc. and they would schedule another appointment once my “fix” was ready. They actually fixed (permanently) the tooth right there, on the spot, with perfect color matching. This and some x-rays were all done in under an hour. Overall, this was a fantastic experience. I highly recommend StarBrite Dental to anyone looking for an easy, comfortable (as can be) dental experience.

I started going to StarBrite Dental six years ago when I needed several implants.  I selected Starbrite Dental not only because of the outstanding reviews but also, I admit, because they were more reasonable than my south Marin dentist.  I was so very happy with the results, the personal care and staff that I made Starbrite my regular dental service and have gladly been traveling the hour and half car ride from Marin for my dental care ever since.  Thank you Starbrite/Fremont.

This review is based on my brief experience with StarBrite Dental in Fremont, CA. Without ever having visited the office, I called StarBrite Dental out of desperation resulting from a scheduling error from another dentist also located in Fremont. The StarBrite staff assured me they could see me right away. I found Dr. Lokhandwala to be a highly competent and thorough provider with a desirable skill-set, including one that offers attention to detail. She is articulate and communicates her findings in a meaningful way. Her office staff is well organized and the entire group made my visits as pleasant and positive as possible. My issue was managed professionally and with respect to my needs. Most importantly, StarBrite Dental has earned my trust and I have confidence in their staff and services.

My family and I have been Starbrite patients for a number of years.  Before we lived in Fremont, we lived in a Sacramento and used to save our dental visits for when we were in the Bay in order to experience the great care from Starbrite.  Dr. Munira and the team are super thorough, diligent and gentle.  Even my 4 year old enjoys visiting Starbrite!

Dr. Munira Lokhandwala at StarBrite Dental has enabled me to enjoy eating again. I had shorty work done at a big chain dental clinic and couldn’t eat without pain to my gums. She knew exactly what to do and I follow up as needed and she knows my case well. The people are so friendly at the check in desk and remember me personally and together with the entire staff make me feel relaxed and at home. I travel ten miles from north San Jose but it’s worth the short time it takes to get there. I recommend StarBrite Dental in Fremont to anyone especially those like me who are in need of a dentist who knows how to fix the damage that’s been done by previous work on their mouth. Now I can enjoy going to a restaurant with my family again.

I am glad to have StarBright Dental taking care of my entire family. I really appreciate their quick response to emergency text message and providing care during this pandemic situation. Happy to be taken care always and moreover my kids love the doctors and staff there. The facility is clean, takes precautionary survey questions and survey from visitors, less crowded and sterilized equipments gave me confidence during my visit today.

I haven’t been to the dentist in years for various reasons. With that being said my oral health was in embarrassing condition. Never once was I made to feel embarrassed or uncomfortable I left my exam knowing that with the help of the caring and compassionate staff of starbrite dental my future will include lots of wide grin smiles. Thanks for being awesome.

Louis H. from Oakland, CA (Source: Yelp)

I was pretty skeptical of dentists period, and of the five stars this place received.  I have had some extra terrible experience with dentists who didn’t listen to my medical-contributed issues and lost a lot of time, and a few teeth, to this type of treatment. Dr Munira listened to everything I stated, and from back in 2013 until now, incorporates the past and present concerns into every visit.  She is, without a doubt, AMAZING as a dentist and person.  Since then, I’ve never left her office feeling worse or regretful.  Front desk staff, especially but not limited to Janice, have been a delight to accommodate me via email and phone, and are a delight to talk to while waiting for the doctor.  The dental hygienists are extra caring, but the amazement is in how Dr. Munira takes one of the scariest experiences and makes it as painless as possible.  When you say “that hurts” in that mumbled muted breath, she listens and will reapproach her method.  When she’s talking to you, she actually takes what you say into account.  I just left yesterday, and I was driving home going “I LOVE MY DENTIST” because she handled an issue that started very negative and made it work GREAT!  Never going to another dentist if I can help it.  EVER!!

Dr. Lokhandwala is kind, gentle, understanding in addition to being very capable and knowledgeable of dental treatment. I went to StarBrite Dental for an implant. The entire process lasted several months because of unexpected complications. I never lost confidence in Dr. Lokhandwala or her team and am happy to say I have a brighter smile as the result of her work. Thank you Dr. Lokhandwala and thank you StarBrite Dental!

Very good service. Dr. Murina K. L. is highly knowledgeable, experienced and confident in her dentistry work. She makes customer feel happy after dental treatment. The front desk receptionist Judy has a welcoming attitude towards customers and nice nature. We recommend for everyone to visit the Dr office for dental work.

★★★★★

I have been going to starbrite dental for dental care of my whole family for over 5 years. I am really happy with their service. Office staff is very friendly and helpful. All doctors are very good. Dr Lokhandwala is very thorough with her care. I had several issues in my teeth including bleeding gums. With regular visits and care from the team, and couple of deep cleaning sessions my oral health is in so much better shape. I had a chipping front tooth and Doctor Lokhandwala fixed it like a magic. In this place I feel very well taken care of, I highly recommend it!
