★★★★★

This office has been absolutely excellent. I recently moved to Phoenix and was searching for a dentist that would accommodate my busy and unpredictable work schedule. The team at Uptown Dental has gone above and beyond – they have really worked hard to be accessible, communicative, and transparent at every step of the way. I can’t recommend them highly enough!

Loved my experience here! Paula (hygienist) and Angelina (receptionist) were so friendly and helpful. Paula explained everything about my teeth to me while she was conducting the cleaning, and was very gentle. She was upfront about the cost of a minor additional treatment I needed. She also included two sample products to the bag they give you at the end that were based on what I personally needed, which was a lovely touch, but then the icing on top was when she gave me the standard product bag they were mostly eco-friendly products !!! Usually I just refuse them but this time I took them home. So wonderful !! Highly recommend.

I couldn’t put into words how amazing this practice was for me. I have been to many dental practices, but my experience with this practice was above and beyond. The cleaning Paula gave me was something I have never had before. My teeth felt amazing, and I didn’t think that was a thing with cleanings. I just always went every 6 months and I knew that was what I was suppose to do. Now I know what its suppose to FEEL like!! Thank you Uptown Dental for taking such great care of me. You guys have a patient for life.

My mom, sister and I have all been patients here for coming on 6 years now, and have always felt taken care of. Receptionists have always been kind and helpful and amazing to speak to. All of the dentists and hygienists have a great sense of humor and super honorable education and work history, & they do a fantastic job explaining everything to me and comforting me as I always have plenty of questions for them. Paula is consistently ready to help and makes it very easy to get into contact with her should you need anything. They’ve taken care of me since I was a teenager and I so appreciate everything they do!! Plus, the location is amazing and feels very close-knit and comfortable. Trustworthy and amazing people

Update to my review: Had the most amazing experience here recently that I just had to share. I had a canker sore on my tongue (ouch!) and the office manager, Paula, had me come in when the office was closed so she could check it out and help. She helped me get a prescription, even on a Saturday, and I couldn’t have been more grateful. The medicine helped immensely and I was just in awe of how she went above and beyond to help me out even when the office was closed and/or it being the weekend. She even gave me her cell # to keep in good contact. My canker sore was so bad it made it hard to eat, drink, talk, etc. so the timeliness of getting help was key and I was nothing less than 100% satisfied with how Paula and her team stepped up to help. Thank you!

★★★★★

This is one of the nicest dentist office I have ever been to. Not nice as far as faculties although they are top notch but nice in regards to the vibe and culture. Everyone is so helpful and pleasant to deal with. James at the front desk is a rockstar (told u I’d call you out). I highly recommended this to anyone needing any sort of care with any budget and as a plus they are even open on weekends !!!

★★★★★

I had a fantastic experience here. All of the staff were very kind and friendly. Paula was knowledgeable and explained everything in a way I could understand. Support staff was patient and helpful with confusion I had regarding new insurance coverage through my employer. The office was spotless and comfortable and had a great vibe. You can tell that Paula and the staff care about what they do and care about the clients. Due to this experience I highly recommend this office and this team for your dental needs. Thank you!

★★★★★

They did absolutely amazing! I was at a previous practice that I wasn’t entirely happy with because I felt that they belittled me because of my less than perfect dental hygiene. So when I went here I was really extremely nervous. But from the moment I walked through the door I felt welcomed! Chris Bustamante was my dental hygienist, and he made me feel right at home and comfortable. He was gentle while doing the x-rays and examination. Hi do you need to go back for a procedure and I only have a little bit of anxiousness. Versus my extreme anxiety at the previous dentist I went to. I highly recommend them for any dental procedures!

★★★★★

I followed Dr. Lazore from another practice and have no regrets. From frequent reminders to see my dental work as an investment, to the more than capable hygienist, Lindsay, my mouth received excellent care. For the first time in my adult life, I don’t mind going to the dentist. Chris was amazing!! Wonderful chair side manner! Easygoing exploration of my mouth and encouragenent to floss regularly (yes, I need and appreciate reminders) to see improvement in my oral hygiene. Chris, great first impression!

★★★★★

I recently came here for a cleaning and had a fantastic experience. Starting with the email inquiry up until the time I left, every person I encountered was friendly and professional. Also huge bonus points for not keeping me waiting forever! We got started right on time. Paula got all of my xrays/medical history taken care of before I was turned over to the very capable hands of the hygienist. I am not the greatest with remembering names especially on a Saturday morning but I want to say Rachel. I should have asked her again because it was honestly one of the best cleanings I have ever had. I’m already booked for the next cleaning. Great little team here!

★★★★★

I just had my first visit and this place is amazing! From the moment I walked in the reception Chante greeting me with a welcoming smile. Then Paula brought me back and explained everything that was going to be done. She took lots of pictures and the whole time was explaining what she was doing. Then Sam cleaned by teeth and he was amazing. He made me feel so comfortable and was so gentle. He made sure through the visit to ask me how things are going and I was was doing. They truly care about their patients. It really felt like they where one big family their. I would recommended this place to anyone!!!

★★★★★

As an extremely anxious, uninsured dental patient, this is the best experience I’ve ever had at a dentist. Everyone was incredibly nice, patient, and gentle. My options were explained to me without being pressured into anything, and services that would normally be unaffordable were made accessible to me. Scheduling was easy, and they accept care credit. If you’re nervous about going to the dentist, I can’t recommend this office enough.

★★★★★

I want to preface this review by saying that I have major anxiety surrounding dental procedures. Before my experience at Uptown Dental I never had a positive experience in the dental chair. Sam just “got me”. He realized right away how uncomfortable I was, and genuinely went out of his way to make the experience a positive one. I even laughed a couple times through the anxiety tears. Thank you Sam and the rest of the Uptown Dental staff. I know with your help, I’m on the road to healthy gums and future joyful dentist appointments.

I had a wonderful experience!!! I love the team! Sam (dental hygienist) did an excellent job deep cleaning and laser cleaning! Super patient and understanding! Aman (dentist) did a marvelous job on my front filling. She and her worker made me feel safe and assured that I was taken care of and was comfortable during the process. Paula (owner) is just as wonderful too! If any problems may happen she will guide you in the right direction! Her biggest incentive is a healthy customer. Shante (front desk) has also great patience and explains in detail any questions you may have! She is very nice!! It shows that this team really do want their customers to be happy and healthy!! I finally found a dentist!!!!

This is a great little practice in an extremely convenient location for us midtown-downtown dwellers. I appreciate the text reminders for my 6 month appointments. The tools they use seem very state of the art. I’ve never got the feeling they are trying to sell me something I don’t need. We started going here because if recommendations from neighbors and have not been disappointed.

★★★★★

I have been going to this office for years, and although it has gone through an ownership change recently it has only improved. I really enjoy the staff as they always make me feel super comfortable. Sam the hygienist is a hoot and makes getting your teeth cleaned actually fun. (how often does that happen?) The doctors are also very diligent in making sure you are comfortable and informed of everything they are doing. I highly recommend this office if you want to feel appreciated and be well taken care of.

★★★★★

I had a tremendous experience with Uptown and will be making them my primary dental provider from now on. Every single person I interacted with was friendly and explained everything to me thoroughly in a way I could understand. They also have a great payment plan if you’re on a tight budget like myself. Overall an excellent experience.

★★★★★

Normally, do not write reviews, but I must say WOW. If you are looking for a new dentist your search is over! Under the new management, this place understands what customer service means. Paula and company not only got me in fast, but they were gentle and extremely caring. Its always scary to go to the dentist, but everyone at Uptown made me feel at ease and treated me like family. Thank you so much I found my dentist for life!!!!

★★★★★

Doctor Cullinan is amazing. He made me feel valued as a customer, which seems challenging for the medical profession these days. He asks questions, listens to your concerns and the office staff are so helpful and friendly! Keep up the great work! I have sent many family members to them and hope they continue to be “home” as long as I am in Arizona!

★★★★★

I can’t say enough unbiased good things about the team at this dentist office. I came in early this year with a ton of dental issues. They prescribed a treatment plan that we worked on all summer. It worked to restore my dental health. They know what they are doing and they care about their patients. The professionalism of the front office staff and bedside manner and of every dentist in this office is exceptional. Highly recommended!

★★★★★

My wife and I both have had great care every visit, comfort along with thorough treatment seem to be their priority… We’ve always gotten a prompt follow up call from Paula or Dr Lazore to see how we’re doing after an appointment, the whole team at Uptown is great, looking ahead and addressing any obstacles whether insurance or schedule related… Brian A.

Looking for a new dentist and caring practice? You have reached your destination!! Under new ownership, this office has completely transformed itself. Professional and caring dentist (Dr. Lazore) who makes you feel comfortable and explains everything, great office manager/owner (Paula) who is hands on working with everyone as needed and great dental tech staff as well. Going to the dentist is never easy..but coming here makes it a much more pleasant experience.

Update: I went from 5 down to 2 then back up to 5 since Paula took over. I almost gave up with this office after some “issues” of lack of professionalism, issues with my dental treatments & The Docs were revolving which concerned me. Paula is the gem here. Since bringing in some people she knows the office has improved immensely. She goes out of her way for patients. Which reminds me I need to get back in. She updated & modernized the space too. .

Megan B. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Such a wonderful experience!  I recently moved to the area and saw the good reviews on Yelp and decided to check this place out for my cleanings etc.  Paula is so personable and knowledgeable – she makes you feel like family.  The office was clean and cute and in a good neighborhood. I will be returning!

Marie B. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Doctor Cullinan is great. It was like talking with my old dentist back home. He was not interested in the cosmetics of my teeth. He recognized the discoloration in my teeth and told me what my old dentist always said about my teeth. James at the desk is hard working and can find appointments that can work around any schedule. I look forward to using him for my dental needs. His staff is professional and efficient. The trees beside the office are the perfect place to park. Nice and shady. Great appreciated during the summer!

★★★★★

My first visit to Uptown Dental will not be my last! Dr. Lazore is the best. I felt very comfortable and at ease with her. Paula, the owner and one of the hygienist is amazing and very thorough. Paula took her time and answered all of my questions. I highly recommend Uptown Dental to anyone looking for a great dental experience.

★★★★★

Started going to this place a few weeks ago. I have a good amount of work that I need to get done due to lack of going to the dentist because of my anxiety. I have been able to get over my fear of being in the chair over my past few weeks going here. Paula is so so sweet and Dr. Lazore carries herself very professionally. Bonus note: I’m a transgender woman, if you’re also trans, this is the place to go. I have never ever felt disrespected regarding my gender or presentation while attending appointments here.

★★★★★

I just had the best dental experience ever and that’s saying a lot because I get extremely anxious anytime I go to the dentist – even for a cleaning. I’m truly grateful I found Dariene Lazore, DMD and Paula Quinn, RDH. They are amazing practitioners. Thankfully, every person involved with this practice is top notch. All of them. Seriously. They exude compassion and professionalism. I’m telling everyone I know to check them out; they’ll be happy they did.

I came here twice, once for a cleaning and once to have two fillings replaced. Everyone was so nice and answered all of my questions. They walked me through what they were doing and helped keep me calm and relaxed through the whole process. The second time I had to be there for two hours to get the cleaning and fillings replaced as well as sealants for a few teeth. The doctor and hygienist also let me take regular short breaks to rest my jaw. I highly recommend this business and the people here. The office is very clean, and tidy. They even helped me find a few dentists out of town for when I move back home to spend time with family. Very happy with the results and my teeth look and feel great.

Great experience! I had no previous records with this practice but they still managed to fit me in the next day. All of the staff members are friendly. Very professional. The questions I needed answered regarding my teeth, they were able to answer and show examples right on their computer. I recommend checking out this practice. Thank you for very much!

★★★★★

The dental hygenists are friendly and even hum to the music they have playing in the office, I suspect, in attempt to make us feel better. Because, who likes going to the dentist, right? The doctor, too, had a calm demeanor and I felt right at home. Additionally, the office is in a historic building in a quiet street, which made for a cozy visit. I had some issues with my insurance upon arrival, but the staff made me comfortable, were understanding, and went above and beyond to help me figure out the issues. Will come back.

We found this dentist office from a friend on Facebook. I am pleased with the staff and the beautiful, clean office experience every time we come. My daughter was in need of braces and I feel we are getting value and good work done at this office. I would highly recommend Uptown dentistry. I have never had a problem making an appointment or any trouble having to move an appointment, the front desk staff is great. SS

I found this dentist after being told I had 4 cavities. I was dazed and confused, from the other dentist. James put my mind at ease and helped me put together what I needed from this dentist. I was worried I had to wait but I was given an appointment the following week. Just as I had suspected I have 0 cavities. Whew! Although his office is far from my house, I will make the trip! Straight forward and honest. He listened to me and showed me where it could look like a cavity but it was not. Very professional. Great staff. Highly recommended.

★★★★★

Have super bad anxiety about the dentist and fear of pain so much that I have avoided the dentist at all costs. When I went in, they did not shame me, they did not make me feel bad, and they did not lecture me about what I already knew about my dental hygiene habits. Instead, they were gentle and inderstanding not only of my teeth but my anxiety as well. I felt so supported and comfortable. Would recommend to anyone who has similar fears.
