I can’t say enough about how good the entire staff is. For too long I put off going to the dentist because I’d had so many experiences with overly judgmental and harsh dentists. Now that I need to get some serious work done, I’m so glad I found Whitman Dental Center. Starting from my first visit, Dr. Solanki and everyone in the office were nothing but supportive, friendly and helpful. Every time I go I feel completely at ease, which isn’t a sentence I ever thought I’d write about a dentist’s office. The office itself is clean and modern, with Netflix on TVs in the room (nothing will take your mind off getting wisdom teeth removed like watching Ninja Warrior or crazy animal shows). Making appointments is easy, and they clearly broke down all the associated costs. If you’re tired of the traditional stressful dentist experience, I 100% recommend switching it up and going to Whitman.

This was me and my daughter 1st visit and I am so happy I chose this location. The staff is so Professional and genuinely nice. I really appreciate the information and break down of my insurance. I will definitely recommend Whitman Dental to anyone who want Great Service with a smile Thank you

It had been a while since I’ve been to a dentist and was very nervous, but the staff at Whitman Dental could not have been more welcoming and friendly. Valerie greeted me with a smile and a handshake. Lauren put my mind at ease, being it my first time getting dental work done. Dr. Solanki was very knowledgeable, friendly and patient. Everyone took the time to explain things to me and I am very greatful! This is the first time I’ve left the dentist feeling happy and confident in my choice. Thanks Whitman Dental!

Wow I cannot even express how thankful I am to have experienced dental treatment at Whitman dental . My experiences here reminded me of my childhood dentist that talked me through everything while making me extremely comfortable. Dr Solanki, lauren and Valerie helped me out so much and truly showed patience and understanding . My insurance company didn’t cover everything that I got done but they had no problem working with me with payments . I really love it here I hope they can be my dentist for a lifetime :).  Please go here you won’t regret it .

Everyone at Whitman Dental was fantastic. From the moment I called in to schedule for my first appointment to going over my treatment plan they were patient, non judgmental and made me feel welcome. Definitely feel fantastic about taking the plunge with them for my dental health!

Kay H. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


I have a massive fear of dentists. But even before i got there i felt comfortable thanks to valerie at the front desk. she was kind and understanding and patient. When i got there i was blown away, everyone, including the dr was friendly, gentle and put me at ease. it was a wonderful experience, unlike any other. who knew i’d ever look forward to going back. thank you!!

Paolo J. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Solanki and his staff are some of the nicest people I’ve ever met and I’m glad that he is my dentist. I’ve had all four of my wisdom teeth removed by him and also had deep gum cleaning by him and they were all experiences that I thought I would dread but ended up not being bad at all. He’s super friendly and informative and doesn’t pressure you into getting procedures for your teeth done immediately to make money. He really cares along with his staff.

Today I visited Whitman Dental. I have not been to the dentist in a very long time. The women at the desk I believe their names to be Monique and Marie were very warm and made me feel at ease knowing I was very afraid. Then when I went back the dental assistant Anna was really sweet and comforting. I’m glad I made the decision to come here.

Absolutely love these folks, it always feels like they provide you as much information as possible which is great when you walk in anxious or nervous about getting dental work done. It really makes it easier to make informed decisions about your care, as well as feel like you have a clue what’s going on. Having Netflix turned on during my procedure was also kind of amazing.

Sue U. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Solanki is a very gentle, kind, and knowledgeable dentist that I trust with my teeth as well as my daughter’s. I am very scared of the dentist and Dr. Solanki really put me at ease. I even let him pull a back molar, and felt no pain. It is easy to get an appointment with him. Also, he has an incredibly friendly office staff, and I find that to be very important, as phone calls to his office are always pleasant, and you feel very welcome in the reception area. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Solanki to my friends and loved ones.

Maria K. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve had a lot of anxiety with going to the dentist as I had a few major procedures that I had to get done, but Covid forced me to push everything back. But that being said , I had a really pleasant experience at Dr. Solankis office today. He was so kind and his entire staff was super helpful and reassuring, the clinic is also very clean and I was able to book my appointment online. I am so thankful I found a dentist in the city that’s professional and thorough.

What a team! They are the most easy going yet professional crew I have ever encountered. I had to wait but the dentist himself let me know they were prepping the room and had not forgotten me. It was worth the wait. The numbing was fast and painless and before I knew it they were done! I enjoyed the dentist for the first time. I WANT to go back. They let me pay half up front and the other next time which was convenient. The reminders for my appointment were texts so I answered on my own time and the COVID questionnaire that I had to fill out let me know they took it seriously and were prepared. A must go for Dentistry! This is the best dentist in Philly! Thank you Dr. Solanki

Farwa N. from Metuchen, NJ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Solanki and the team were absolutely wonderful. They accommodated me very last minute, after I was having severe pain in my tooth. Dr. Solanki was patient with me and provided me with details around my pain, what next steps were, and was able to get me to a healthy place. Thank you.

Tony P. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Solanki is a great dentist. He takes the time to explain everything. Had a build out and crown put in. The crown is flawless and feels great. The temp crown before now was very sturdy which I appreciated while traveling overseas! Valerie is also awesome. She is such a pleasant person and makes the experience very relaxed and comfortable. I would be remiss not to mention the dental assistants, unfortunately I don’t recall their names. But they are always super welcoming and helpful.

Carly B. from Folsom, PA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Solanki and his staff are impeccable.  Kind, patient, friendly and upbeat.  I first visited after a few years without insurance, therefore years since my last exam.  They were gentle, had Netflix on in the room and checked in with me constantly to assure my comfort.  Years later he caught 2 tiny cavities before they progressed and got me in for fillings within the week.  I was terrified but he finished BOTH within 20 mins with ZERO pain and I nearly wept with joy at how simple and painless the experience was.  I cannot recommend this practice more, especially to those who have extreme dental fear/ anxiety.  LOVE THEM!!!

Kevin H. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


The staff is very friendly, and Dr. Solanski does great work. He extracted 2 of my wisdom teeth, as well as fixed a cracked tooth, by putting a crown on it. I love the neighborhood feel of the office and care I received. The price is very very reasonable as well I’m comparison to other dentists in the area. Highly recommend to anyone!

I’ve always been absolutely terrified of the dentist. My sister recommended Whitman Dental after she had her wisdom teeth extracted. I went for a cleaning and ended up getting my wisdom teeth extracted that day too! I didn’t feel a thing and am so happy I was able to get my cleaning, X-rays and extractions done in under 1 hour and a half. The staff, specifically the dental assistant taking my x-rays, was so nice and comforting. The office was very home-like and the doctor was informative & kind. Overall great experience and I am at ease(:

I went to Whitman Dental and was so shocked by the hospitality there. The lady Vanessa at the front desk was amazingly kind and so helpful. Doctor Chaudhari cleaned my teeth previously and did an amazing job!!! I returned to have my teeth whitened by the same Doctor and couldn’t be any happier with the results!!! Thank You Whitman!!

I had a great experience at Whitman dental. I had not been to the dentist in 4 years and was very anxious about what I needed to get done. Monique was friendly and so helpful helping me understand my plan and the breakdown of insurance coverage and what I would have to pay. Dr. Solanski was patient, thorough and answered all of my questions about how to make the best choices for my teeth. The whole staff made me feel comfortable after a long break from taking care of my teeth. Highly recommend them.

Emily E. from South Philadelphia East, Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


In philly for grad school and hours away from my hometown dentist. A few days into the semester and I couldn’t eat because of an awful toothache. I was able to book an appointment online for the very next day, immediately recieved a call to confirm and to start my paperwork over the phone. When I arrived to the office I was greeted very warmly, waited less than 5 minutes to see the dentist. The dental hygienist and dentist were very friendly, took his time and was very careful. I felt well taken care of and my toothache is long gone!

Angela H. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Outstanding dental office! Beginning with Dr. Solanki and his phenomenal team of professionals. Dr. Solanki has made my experience with a new dentist very easy. The entire staff makes you feel comfortable and cared for. Starting with the girls at the front desk. Lauren the office manager is top notch, she is knowledgeable, very personable and ensures that you understand every step of your treatment plan. She will work miracles and do anything to help. Clearly, Dr. Solanki is an expert and he works methodically to perform the work to his high standards. I got an extraction/two implants/bone graft at his office and the entire process was flawless. He made sure I was not feeling any discomfort or pain during the procedure. Exceptional service and attention to detail are what make Whitman Dental Center the place for dental excellence.

I recently got some dental work done here (some painful wisdom teeth, infected tooth/jawbone surgery) and it was my first time there – they were so, so amazing, so kind, so informative and so quick! I was in and out within an hour, and they checked up on me about a week later to see how I was doing, and I just came back from my follow up appointment where they threw in a free whitening kit! They’re a really warm group of people and will help you with whatever you could possibly need. For sure will return anytime I (unfortunately) need to go to the dentist – they make what can be a stressful/scary experience much easier 🙂

Had an amazing experience! Had a wisdom tooth growing in as scheduled an appointment to get checked out. Dentist ended up removing the tooth in about 10 minutes, with no pain. Front desk reception was super kind and helpful, especially Maria and Monique! Highly recommend!

Miguel Quinones (Source: Google)


I’m a first time patient there and everyone was very welcoming. They were all informative and helpful, from the receptionist to the actual dentist. They’re also willing to work with you. They gave me the feeling that the most important thing was the overall health of your teeth. Highly recommend this dentist office!

Matt Y. from Lansdale, PA (Source: Yelp)


Ive been going to Whitman dental center for 8 months. I have had a crown installed, several cavities drilled and four wisdom teeth extracted. Every single procecedure was above my expectation and flawless in execution. Dr. Solanki and his team are courteous and professional like you wouldn’t believe. Every experience is the most pleasant it can be. I would highly recommend them to anyone in the area. -Matt

Anne- Marie M. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Let’s face it- who really enjoys going to a dentist? Just the thought makes me nervous and twitchy. I have found Whitman Dental as a great place to ease my mind and nerves while receiving quality professional care. The receptionist Valerie is most gracious always helpful and accomodating in regards to appointments, reminders and insurance. Dr. Solanki is caring, patient and compassionate who listens. I explained to him my fears about getting a dental implant. I had avoided it for years. He took lots of time explaining the process. Under his gentle guidance I can now smile freely – with my new implant. The thought of having a screw in my mouth freaked me out but I was out of options since it was a front tooth. The process wasn’t as painful as I imagined (there was pain the first day) and now the new tooth looks like it has been there for years- color and shape matching much better than the crown that fell out. I am thankful to have Whitman Dental (Dr. Solanski and staff) in my neighborhood and to know if there is a problem they are there to help you. I highly recommend them.

Charles W. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Solanki is one the most caring an concerned dentist’s I’ve ever been to. He is kind, concerned and very informative along every step of the way. He takes his time to listen to all of your concerns and from there he creates a treatment game plan. Ms. Valarie, and Fatima are to of the warmest and pleasant people to work with as they have a calming affect to them both, not to mention a gentle touch by all here at Whitman Dental. Thanks so much for treating me as person, and not just another co-pay. Five Stars all the way!!!!!

I started going here since my dentist was still closed due to Covid and I dont believe I will ever leave. I was shocked when I was able to schedule appointment at 230 in the morning for the following day on the computer. Turned out like I thought and I needed a root canal.I’m all fixed now and just got my crown last week and it was music to my ears when they said I dont need to return until April for checkup/cleaning. I adore the Dental Hygentist and I forgot her name but as soon as I started going there I felt like I knew her my whole life she even got me hooked on a new show since there’s a TV in the room. Rich and Famous Real Estate Show My Dentist took the time to shave down a partial that I didnt get made there and he was determined to get it to work. Best suprise was I received a Birthday wish via text and email. Please check them out if you are looking for a new dentist!!!

Absolutely terrific. I will work to keep Dr. S as my dentist for life – even if I move! Chose Whitman Dental based on my insurance, location and the great reviews. So very happy about it. I was terrified of my first visit to a dentist in nearly a decade. I was dreading everything about it, especially the lecture and judgment for the gap in care. Dr. S and all the staff were so welcoming and judgment-free, chit-chatting to help my nerves. No lecture, just glad I was there getting care now 🙂 A wonderful experience and I am so grateful. Also talked thru the recommend plan of care and upfront about expenses. Sincerely, I could not have asked for a better office!

I could not be happier with my experience at Whitman Family Dental. After switching to Whitman Family dental I am no longer fearful of going to the dentist. The team are all welcoming and amazing. They make you feel so comfortable each step of the way from start to finish. They are kind and knowledgeable. I feel like I stumbled upon a gem finding this office. I am a surgical nurse and I know great patient care. If you are looking for a dentist office, with great patient care look no further then Whitman Family Dental. I appreciate this awesome team greatly and will be back for all my future dental visits. You are in good hands when visiting here. I highly recommend this wonderful office! I cannot say enough good things about this office or the wonderful people who work here.

Maria C. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Solanki is awesome. I started going here in August and he makes the dental experience so much better. I hate the dentist but he is very attentive and caring and makes you feel comfortable. He cares about your well being as much as he cares about your teeth and I’m very grateful for that. Valerie is great too. They make you feel welcomed and appreciated. I highly recommend this dental office especially if you’re skeptical of dentist to begin with. They will make you feel right at home.

Let me say that I was sold from the first visit. Which just so happened to be today. The staff was incredibly nice, and the overall environment was very calming. Dr. Solanki is probably one of the best dentist I’ve had, and his assistant Chi-Chi (yes that’s her actual name) was nothing short of perfect. I would highly recommend Whitman Dental Center to any and everyone. By the way not only were they thorough, but also quick as well.

This is probably the best Dentist I’ve been to in all of my life! First off, I hate going to Dentist. I have a random anxiety that literally keeps me away from Dentist to avoid triggering it. I’ve been there twice. Once for a cleaning, which literally was the fastest cleaning I’ve every received, and notice a huge difference (as I’m sure everyone does with the cleaning) and then I came in today (10/16) to one of my back molars extracted and they were so patient, professional, and efficient when it came to the removal of the tooth. The office is in a great neighborhood, its super clean, and the staff is extremely friendly! If you’re going to any Dentist but this Dentist, it hurts my heart to say but you’re losing out on life. 5/5!

I’ve been to many dentist office/clinics. This was my first time visiting Whitman Dental Center. I was a bit skeptical because of my past experiences. HOWEVER, THIS IS THE VERY BEST DENTAL CENTER!! STAFF was so KIND , FRIENDLY, and HELPFUL!! ! DOCTOR WAS PROFESSIONAL AND AMAZING!! I will definitely recommend to ALL of my FAMILY & Friends!!

Let me start by saying I was terrified of the dentist. I neglected my smile for many years. I was nervous about my first appointment but, I can now say I am no longer afraid of the dentist lol. Dr. Solanki and his dental hygienist, Chi-Chi, not only made me feel comfortable but made me feel like family. They really listen to what you want and work with you to achieve the smile you always wanted. Very clean office, fast appointments, and great service. I highly recommend Whitman Dental Center. Dr. Solanki and his staff are great!
