Farshad M. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


As a patient for more than 10 years, it’s a pleasure to write a review for my most favorite dentists, dental practice and even health care provider. Caring for their patients and providing quality dental care is the utmost important mission in the practice. this is clear as you walk into their welcoming office and meet with their friendly and respectful staff. In my every visit, I have also experienced professional and engaging treatments — with doctors or hygienists patiently care for me and explain their work. i am also very happy with the quality and durability of their work — specially on cosmetic procedures; i am proud to show my teeth when I smile. I highly recommend them!

Thee most professional health care providers I have experienced in my entire lifetime from every aspect. I am now retired so I have a Huge data bank to measure them against. I have recently moved from San Francisco and actually almost miss “Going to the dentist”. These dentist Sisters are the most expert, caring, compassionate, gentle, friendly Doctors Imaginable. The Staff is equally caring and friendly and is 100 percent organized and works relentlessly to ensure a schedule of services tailored Specifically to accommodate one’s hectic lifestyle, responding immediately to all contingencies. This office is a gem!

Angela J. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I moved to SF a year ago and found Union Square Dental Practice through the positive reviews on Yelp. I’ve had several negative experiences in the past with dentists who had very aggressive treatment plans with little transparency into costs, so it was important to me to find a dentist I could trust. Dr. Hakim is the best dentist I have had so far (I have been to 8 dentists in my lifetime, 2 in other countries!). The prices, of course, are not as affordable as in other countries with better healthcare systems, but I am more than willing to pay more for the amazing care this practice provides. Lastly, in terms of my treatment – Dr. Hakim helped draft up a holistic treatment plan to help me understand what procedures were high vs. low priority as well as the costs associated with each procedure. She and Nicole helped me pick and choose the right mix of procedures to get done so I can make sure I get as much covered by insurance as possible. Thanks again Dr. Hakim

I have been lucky that I am being treated by the Hakim sisters for my dental work. Their facility is extremely professional, clean and equipped with high end gear, which gives me the confidence of going in there and coming out with a healthier mouth.  I come all the way from San Carlos to San Francisco specifically because of these attributes.  Their clinical skills are also well tuned towards the patience’s state of comfort. That is extremely important to me as I have had an inherited fear of the dentist from past lives.   Thank you Dr. Hakim (both of you) and please keep up the great work!

Chipped a front tooth and scrambled to find a dentist to fix it ASAP when my old dentist was unavailable. Found Union Square Dental on yelp & was impressed by all the amazing reviews. Not only did they get back to me within a few hours, but they were able to squeeze me in first thing in the morning & fix me right up. Despite being a new patient, they took the time to really make me feel comfortable from beginning to end. The doctor was AMAZING- explaining everything she was planning & doing, and also checking in frequently to make sure I was okay. Not only was her work flawless, but I’m absolutely looking forward to going back to her & the practice next time for my regular dental visits. Thank you so much!!!!

Joyce C. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Went to see Dr. for a tooth that has been plaguing me for some time. Dr. made me feel so comfortable, despite my nervousness. His office is clean, and attractive and staff were pretty nice. He was very accommodating regarding my schedule. I felt in capable hands during what was a complicated root canal and he explained the process clearly. There was even a period of time when I had to wait for the antibiotic to work and he brought in an iPad to pass the time. It seemed very important to him that I was comfortable at all times. He even repeated, “There is no need for you to feel pain.” Hopefully I never personally need to return, but I would recommend him to anyone who needs an endodontist.

Jacob M. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Hakim is seriously the best dentist I have ever encountered. She is very nice and also very efficient. I did an extensive research to find a dentist in San Francisco when I moved to SF from east coast and one of my friends recommended Union Square Dental Practice. I had my first visit almost a year ago when I got surprised by a modern spotless clean office. Everyone in this office smiles. Dr. Hakim also espoke to me personally and explained the entire treatment plan and every detail on my X-ray. Upon concluding my exam and look at my before/after pictures. I decided to have a smile design and anterior veneers since my small teeth were always bothering me and I always wanted to have a nice smile but I could never find a dentist to trust. Dr. Hakim has always been helping me make decisions that are right for my oral health. She showed me the model of my mouth and how my teeth were going to look like after getting the veneers. She helped me to choose teeth colors that best matches my face and my other teeth. The entire process was painless and she was gentle. I got my perfect veneers in couple of days and she not only changed my smile but my entire personality. I’ve since referred 4 friends to Dr. Hakim and they are very happy as well. I wouldn’t hesitate to give Dr. Hakim my full recommendation. Feel free to PM me if you have aany questions.

Nick M. from Berkeley, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came to Union Square Dental a few weeks ago after one of my friends recommended it to me. I can honestly say that this was one of the best dental office visits I have ever had. Dr Hakim made me feel right at home and I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the office and the friendliness of the whole staff. I go to school at UC Berkeley and I will be more than willing in the future to take the trip across the bay because of the superior service at Union Square Dental compared with some of the offices around Berkeley. It’s also a very economical option for a student like myself. Definitely recommending this office to my friends and family!

Ehsan K. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I couldn’t eat with my right side for years. whenever I bit on something, I felt a strange shocking pain going all the way up to my head, so I avoided chewing with my right side. I’m missing a tooth on the left. Imagine how it feels when you cannot chew and enjoy your meals. I saw different dentists and none of them had a solution. My friend who is going to Dr.Hakim for a long time introduced her to me. She was the first dentist who found a crack in my molar tooth and recommended a cap. Right after I started the treatment, and I received my temporary crown, I STARTED CHEWING on my right side comfortably. Just imagine how wonderful it feels when I started ENJOYING my meals after years. Now I chew with peace of mind because the crown that I got there is embracing and protecting my tooth   I also used to grind my teeth at nights and after a while I realized that my teeth are becoming shorter and shorter. Dr. Hakim explained how she can reinforce my front teeth. Now I have healthy and strong teeth. What I  like mostly about her is that she takes her time to explain everything. I learned how to protect my teeth with the night-guard she made for me. Now I smile with confidence. I am happy that I found my favorite dentist and I GIVE HER FIVE STARS.

With no gripe whatever about my dentist for 25 years, I switched to Union Square Dental Practice when the sisters Hakim, Nazanin  she is  young and wonderfully credentialed, opened their new office. Everything is brand new and up-to-the-minute, including the skills of everyone involved. I had a welcoming and pain-free visit, and I was more than satisfied with every part of the experience. Happily, my oral needs are minimal, but after such a long tenure somewhere else, I was concerned that I had done the right thing in changing. I did!!   I particularly like the convenience of communicating with the practice by email  —  for making and confirming appointments, and for sharing digital xrays and records with other dental specialists, if their involvement would be necessary. I was impressed enough to make this my first Yelp review!

Lilliane A. from Irving, TX (Source: Yelp)


Firstly, I would like to thank Dr. Nazanin for her indescribable care and kindness. I am a patient that has had several bad experiences in the past by dentists and have a great fear going in, yet I felt comfortable and in good hands with her. She is professional and very experienced in dealing with all types of patients. I would also like to commend my hygienist, Lamees, who was so gentle and masterful with her knowledge and standard of care. Secondly, the office is was very clean and pristine. It sets a high standard for dental offices!

Chelsea L. from Oakland, CA (Source: Yelp)


I never minded going to the dentist, but I was always cautious because I had bad experiences in the past. Coming here I was nervous, which I always am going into any new health care facility. That feeling was gone the moment I walked in the door. From the front desk to both doctors, you will never find another office that treats you better. They go above and beyond for their patients. My teeth cleaning was excellent and from there I inquired about possible Veneers on my front two teeth due to thinning. In the past, this has been offered to me, but it was the only option given and for some reason something was holding me back. These doctors gave me this as an option as well, but also gave me quite a few other options that were more and less invasive. Never have I ever in my adult life been given OPTIONS for my dental care! They let me feel in control of my health and my smile. I was never told I had to do something one certain way like every single doctor in the past. This office is incredible. If you are searching for the best dental practice in SF, look no further because I have been to a few already and have been they guinea pig per say for you. All I can say is, you better hope they continue to take new patients! This office is amazing! I have told many close friends in SF that they absolutely should go here! Highly recommend! 10 stars out of 5!

Knowledgeable dentist that provides quality care at moderate-ish prices. Pros: + Technologically advanced dental devices + Friendly staff members all around + Clean, spacious, bright, and inviting office  + Offers affordable dental package for the uninsured + Appointments are punctual and smooth Dr. Nazanin: + Thorough in her exam + Knowledgeable and explains in-depth + Patient, warm personality + Gentle touch In-Depth: Wow! Digital x-rays and images of my chipped molars and gum recession were quite impressive. I LOVED being able to actually see where my problem areas were. For me, these things help me decide my next plan of action.   – great from start to finish. I walked in w/o a clue and she educated me on their Quality Dental Plan. Needless to say, I was sold the moment I spoke with her. She’s friendly, patient, and very helpful. Their office – modern but not over the top. Like! It’s clean, it’s inviting, there’s background music. If you’re scared of dentists, this place will put you at ease. Uninsured? They offer their very own Quality Dental Plan. At $400/year, you get 2 dental visits a year that include an exam and cleaning, and yearly x-rays. Costlier things like fillings will have a 15% discount. There’s more to the plan but I was focused on exam and cleanings. Punctuality – amazing thus far. As a new patient, I was taken into Dr. Nazanin’s office to discuss my dental history. She was very thorough and asked about my concerns (major like!). I then spent ~20 minutes on x-rays with her awesome assistant. The general exam and cleaning took ~1 hour. In at 3:30PM, out at ~5PM. After the exam, she recapped everything we went over, what dental work may need to be done, what work should probably get done, potential costs, cost options, preventative care, and my overall dental health. Working in healthcare, I can honestly say she’s a great provider. It’s not easy finding quality doctors who are good at their craft, have great bedside manners, AND know more than they need to so they can be as helpful as possible. Their prices are also fairly reasonable. Can you find cheaper prices for dental work? Probably. But I’d rather pay a little more for quality care that I know I can count on. If I could, I’d visit the dentist every 3 months. What can I say? I like getting my teeth cleaned!

Alex D. from Oakland, CA (Source: Yelp)


Love love love my new dental office! Let me count the ways…. 1) Hands down probably the best cleaning I’ve ever received. And painless too! They use this sonic-water-cleaning thing, so no bloody gums, no pain, just beautiful clean teeth. 2) Super kind and knowledgeable dentist. Dr. Hakim was so sweet and so gentle and so quick! My smile looks amazing because of her. But best of all, she is compassionate and down to earth. No hard sells, no pushing of products, just professionalism and talented. 3) Unquestionably the most talented practice manager/receptionist/insurance guru mans the front desk. Seriously, this lady knows what she’s doing. I heard her explain about 4 different insurance plans and their benefits and loopholes, in depth, without pausing. Where do you find that level of customer service and knowledge these days? You don’t. And this makes her exceptional. In sum, this place is the best dental practice I have found. I could not be more pleased.

Chelsea D. from Mountain View, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love this place, and that is saying a lot as an extremely dental-phobic human.  I’ve written a general review before, but today I want to highlight a specific person–Jimmy the hygenist.  Since it takes me so long to get up the courage to go in, Jimmy was new to me for my cleaning today, but I really appreciated a couple of things about him (those with dental anxieties will understand these).  1: He didn’t keep telling me ‘it’s okay’ or ‘you’re doing great.’  It was strangely calming not to have someone negate your experience, however illogical, or condescend to you when you absolutely don’t feel like you are doing great.  2:  He also didn’t say ‘the hard part is over now, you can relax.’  Again, it was super helpful not to have someone presume to know what my definition of a ‘hard part’ was.   Instead, he was gentle, took his time, and was tuned into body language.  I felt like I was with someone who was seeing me as a person, not just as their job.  And when I did have a minor meltdown, he held his tools out of my field of vision while I recovered, so I actually felt like it was okay to take a break.  Later, he said he’d make a note about the tooth in question so he could remember it for next time.  Even in a great office like those of the doctors Hakim, I’ve never had someone offer me a glimmer of something possibly being easier next time.  His presence today greatly increased the likelihood that I will actually keep my December appointment, or at the very least, not wait another three years 😉

Darius Y. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have a deep feeling of shame when it comes to this review… Mainly because I found these guys because of Yelp, and they’ve been amazing for the YEARS I’ve been coming here! …and I haven’t reviewed them. Shame shame shaaaaaaaame From my first teeth cleaning and consultation years ago, everything has been exceptional. From the gentle cleaning I see them twice a year for, to the dental work I just recently did, I genuinely feel that both Dr. Hakim (two lovely sisters) have your best interest in mind in every regard. Sincerely. Having that in a dentist is truly invaluable. The staff has always been excellent too. I would say I’m particularly fond of Nicole, the receptionist, as she has become my homie. I’m sure she will become yours too because she is delightful! I can say honestly that this is the BEST dental practice I’ve been to in my entire life. You owe it to yourself to see why everyone else is saying the same thing that I am.

Yao Y. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I chose them because of my friend’s recommendation. Over the years, I’ve done invisalign, X-ray & routine cleaning, fillings and tooth sealants. Not big procedures, but many regular visits. Many reviews have commented how professional and friendly the doctors are, which I completely agree. What I have also noticed, from often small acts, that they really care about their profession, are always looking for ways to improve, and take pride in their practice. For example, Dr Hakim once told me she searched through many vendors to get the most natural filling color imported from an EU manufacturer. Recently, I noticed that their protective shades seem to have become more comfortable, and learned that was an upgrade Dr Hakim made after her stumbling upon some better glasses elsewhere. I believe it is endeavors like these, big or small, that separate the great from the good. Highly recommend them to anybody, you will be in good hands and the experience is guaranteed to be trauma-free.

Abtin R. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had probably the best dental experiences of my life here.  First off, the practice looks more like a high-end spa than a dental office and coming from someone that’s a little OCD, this place is exceptionally clean.   The staff is super nice  Dr Nazanin are THE BEST.  I had a particularly complicated issue with one of my crowns and the previous series of dentists I visited just made matters worse.  This practice was highly recommended by particularly picky friends so I thought I give it a try.   I had a particularly long visit because the hack job the previous dentists did was so bad that they had to do a series of xrays and examinations to figure out how to salvage it.  Rather than rush me off, they tag-teamed the procedure to get it done in one shot and did a flawless job.  Literally fixed 5 years of damage and bad dentistry in one visit!! Very grateful to have been introduced to this practice — cannot recommend them enough.

Rhonda R. from Mountain View, CA (Source: Yelp)


Going to the dentist has never been my favorite thing and I’ve often been traumatized with terrible service and coldness. I was recommended to make an appointment with Union Square Dental Practice and I’ve never looked back. , at the front desk is awesome. She is bright, cheery and always so helpful. The Doctors and staff are super attentive and take great care to make sure you comfortable and well informed. As a returning patient, I truly feel like part of the family. The days of anxiety ridden dental visits are obsolete … not to mention the new office is gorgeous, such a sparkling clean and inviting facility!!

Joanna D. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Union Square Dental Practice for almost 7 years now and I have nothing to say but amazing things about  Dr. Nazanin. I chose their office after I moved to San Francisco from Chicago through a friend’s recommendation. They have done a few crowns and a implant restoration for me. Every time I go to their office, everyone from the front to the back is super nice and friendly! They treat me like a family. My last hygiene appointment was at their new office location which is a state of art. If you need a dentist, don’t hesitate to make an appointment with them! I can’t recommend them enough!

Nikki Blum (Source: Google)


Let me count the ways. I adore Union Square Dental. The Drs. Hakim are absolutely wonderful: consummately professional, careful, gentle, precise, thorough, concerned and expert. Both my husband and I are patients and couldn’t be happier. I moved to the practice shortly after it opened, so my care has been first-rate for some time. My husband came in subsequently, and friends began noticing that his teeth looked better after his first appointments. I can’t imagine a better choice.

E. T. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


The Nazanins are wonderful sister doctors. They are always pleasant and  provide professional and honest dental assessment and advice. Nicole has been their front desk guru ever since I first became a patient and she always has a ready smile and warm, friendly demeanor. I can even “feel” her smile whenever we communicate by phone or email. Most medical and dental offices have lackluster or even abusive staff so Union Square Dental has hit the jackpot with Nicole at the helm! If they can make my dental visits, which history has been nothing but torture and fear, as calm and pleasant as they have been, I can’t think of any other dental office I’d rather be, if I have to be there at all!

Elizabeth M. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


first of all I have to say that Union square dental  practice deserves to have more than five stars. This place is absolutely amazing!! This has been the best experience i ever had in a dental office.   Dr. Hakim and her entire staff are so friendly and welcoming, they make going to the dentist a pleasure. Dr. Hakim was really gentle, sweet, knowledgeable and super caring.  She spent a lot of time going over my  treatment plan  and  cleaning my teeth. She did a wonderful job, my teeth were so clean and smooth.  Honestly,  I had a pleasant and fresh sensation in my mouth after my cleaning. Now I can say this has been the  best teeth cleaning i ever had, Thank you so much I’m looking forward for my next appointment.  I’m glad to mention that they have a great dental plan for those who don’t have dental insurance  !!! Overall,  I would highly recommend  Dr. Hakim’s dental practice  to anyone.

Abbey L. from Sausalito, CA (Source: Yelp)


Union Square Dental Practice is FABULOUS! I know, you don’t usually hear that about a dental office, but they continue to wow me with incredible care and service. I actually look forward to my visits because from the minute I walk in the door I am greeted warmly. The dentists truly care about me as a patient and an individual. They really listen to my concerns and explain treatment options. I had an accident & lost 2 front teeth. Until I found  Nazanin Hakim, I was miserable with the results. They have been so patient & understanding & so willing to work with me to give me my smile back. The process has required many visits yet each one has been a great experience. Getting numb is remarkably pain-free and I am SO happy with the results of my treatment. I can’t say enough great things about them – they are my  forever dentists. If you are looking for exceptional, patient centered, genuinely warm dentists, look no further than Union Square Dental!

K. F. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Much like some of the other “Yelpers”, we purchased a teeth cleaning coupon through Living Social.  We arrrived late..ugh. What a way to make a first impression. Yet, the staff made us feel like it was no problem and they were VERY friendly. YELPERS- DON”T READ THIS REVIEW & THINK IT IS OKAY TO COME LATE…BE RESPECTFUL! Both of the dental assistants that prepped us were very knowledgeable, friendly and took away the “fear” of having our teeth cleaned. Then came Masha…that is Dr. Masha Hakim. She is a very good communicator and explained to me what was happening regarding my teeth, before the cleaning, as their state-of-the-art technology could even make a layman, like myself, understand what was happening  For the first time in my life, Dr. Hakim achieved the unthinkable. That is, cleaning my teeth wiithout hitting a nerve or missing the mark. She could have probably have been a great heart surgeon, as her hands are as steady as one can humanly possible imagine. After 6 years of not having my teeth cleaned, my teeth looked remarkably better and feel great! I know that many of you, when you hear the words “Union Square”, you think “expensive”. This dental practice is VERY fair and reasonable! Like most of the other Yelper’s reviews…give them a chance. If your experience is like mine, you won’t be needing another dentist.

Manuel O. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


My old dentist had done some shoddy work on a filling replacement. I was in pain and called Union Square Dental after my wife mentioned she heard they’re good. Explaining the issue over the phone, I was immediately booked for a visit that same day. Turns out I needed a crown to fix the problem. Both the service and the quality of work provided by Dr. Nazanin Hakim  is excellent! And as a techie, I appreciate their use of the latest technology.

James A. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Nazanin is our neighbor so that was always a little awkward to choose her as my dentist. My wife moved to her practice first and immediately began to rave about their hygienist and how well taken care of she was. I soon followed and wished I had several years earlier. Nazanin is  amazing. The most kind and caring dentist I have ever met. Same for everyone in the office and their hygienist. Missing them all during this quarantine but doing my best at night with very thorough flossing so that when we can go back I have made them all proud.

Daniel A. from Bronx, NY (Source: Yelp)


I have used dentists and doctors for 30yrs across the country. My teeth look better than ever and I feel so much more confident in my life. The team at Union Square Dental are the most caring and professional staff I have come across. They do amazing work and I refer all my friends to them who either live in San Francisco or travel to San Francisco. 🙂 As an example: when I moved to NYC, I still kept going to Union Square Dental! Doctor Nazanin are incredible and so is Nicole who always seems available to help! I have nothing but good things to say and can go on forever.

Victor S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am very happy with my experience thus far at Union Square Dental Practice.   I had been with the same dentist for over 10 years, who recently retired, and was practicing in “the stone age” with 30 year old equipment and even older techniques.  Union Square Dental Practice on the other hand is modern and on the cutting edge, using the newest and best technology, and collaborating with excellent referral partners (e.g. endodontist).   The office is new and clean, recently built in the Penthouse level of the 450 Sutter Street Art Deco historic office building.  I feel in great hands with Dr. Hakim, , who is capable of directing the restoration of my dental well being.   I recently had a deep cleaning and hygenist Al-Dossari, Lamees did the best job ever, very thorough, detail oriented, taking good care, and suggesting needed supplementary treatments, such as high level mouthwash and toothpaste to encourage healing of the gums and suppression / reversal of cavity development.   My journey will not take place overnight, however, I’m hoping to become one of Union Square Dental Practice testimonials with before and after picture subjects progressing to cosmetic and invisalign.

Farzad M. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


My experience here has been one of the best dental experiences one can ask for.  The staff are super friendly, the office is so nice and well decorated. And the most important thing is it’s run with the kindest and most welcoming doctors you can ask for.  I say Dr. Nazanin, I believe the practice is run by two sisters, she spent a  great time with me explaining  the issue and her suggested treatment. The treatment went as expected and explained. And she was so kind to follow-up with me. I must also add the office looks so clean which is always comforting.

David R. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


I have not been to the new office in Union Sq. , but I was Dr. Hakim’s Patient when she was located in Novato for a couple of years. As far as the service goes, they were one of the most attentive staff I have ever encountered in a Dental office, and that includes places in Berkeley, SF, Washington DC, and Baltimore… Dr. Hakim was very professional, she thoroughly explained to me what procedures she was performing and what she would recommend. At the time I was a student and didn’t have a good insurance, so she would  make sure that I would get the things that are absolutely necessary done. Lastly, I remember checking what I was being charged for with at least one other office for the first couple of times I went there to make sure I am not getting ripped off [ as some other user has suggested], and that was never the case for me.

Shaun W. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient of Union Square Dental Practice for the last 3 years and it is the best service and experience I’ve ever received in any of the cities I’ve lived in. A recent example: During an afternoon appointment, both Dr. Hakim and her assistant learned I had less time than expected and they both worked quickly to handle the work needed for my next round of invisalign, and answered all of my questions. This meant a lot to me, and they both were sensitive also to my reaction on learning of the length of the next round of treatment. Once again, another example of why this office is by far the best I’ve experienced in terms of patient treatment and quality care. And I always appreciate the warm welcome and politeness of I’m grateful to be in such wonderful hands when it comes to dental services. Thank you all for what you do for your patients!

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


Excellent experience at Union Square Dental Practice! Starting by the way you are greeted by Nicole who helps you set up the appointment and is just so nice, helpful and proactive; going into very professionally and smoothly done cleaning, along with the helpful explanations on best brushing practices; and finally an exceptional dental experience with Dr. Nazanin!I have had 5 fillings done at once by Dr. Nazanin and that was hands down the most pleasant dental visit I have ever had. Dr. Nazanin is very attentive, professional and gentle. She is also very knowledgeable and takes her time to explain to you everything in depth and make sure you understand everything about the procedure and follow up.  I was done with 5 fillings in 1.5hr and didn’t feel a thing! Almost took a nap which is unheard of for me based on my previous experiences. Everyone at this place is extremely nice, friendly and accommodating. I will be returning for the crown replacement and cosmetic procedures. Overall, this place is the best dental practice I found and I could not be happier with how I was treated from the minute I picked up the phone to set up the appointment to the end of both of my visits.

Lily W. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


My first visit went really well. Dr. Nazanin was very informative and acknowledged my fear of dental visit (awful past dental visits caused me to have anxiety). The lady that assisted me with x-ray and cleaning was also very kind and kept asking to make sure I was comfortable. I left feeling very happy that I gave them a try and that my future visits will be just as comfortable.
