Dr. Mahajan is lovely and has provided excellent care. She has great hours and is always flexible. She explains everything in detail and takes pictures of what’s going on and shows me so I can see for myself. I’ve never hada dentist show me a picture before. Often, x-rays, but she takes a lot of pictures before, during and after the procedure and I like that. Her office staff is friendly and I’m really happy she is my dentist.

Dr. Mahajan is an old-fashioned dentist. It’s about the quality of care, not the numbers. She takes the time to explain what the problem is, and she could not be more patient or accessible.

They’re great! Super responsive and nice. I like how transparent they are with your x-rays. They also get how much everything will cost from your insurance first before moving forward with fillings or cleanings.

I had a very pleasant, pain-free and relaxing visit with Dr. Mahajan. She answered all my questions and didn't hesitate to take the time to explain what she was doing. My teeth got a great cleaning, which Dr. Mahajan did herself,very gently and carefully. The office was clean and comfortable too. A very nice experience.

Great experience all the way around. I work in the medical profession and found Dr Mahajan to be not only professionally well rounded and up to date in her profession but also friendly and helpful. Family orientated, organized and one ofthe nicest people I have met in this area since moving here two years ago. Don't hestitate to become part of her growing patient group.

Dr. Mahajan from start to finish was amazing. I am very timid when it comes to dentists, and right when I walked in the door she started to ease my fears. She was kind, gentle, and talked me through everythingshe did. Coming from the health care field, I know how important patient care can be. Dr. Mahajan made me feel cared for. She also referred me appropriately and kept in mind my insurance policy. She didn't surprise me with a big bill, rather explained everything before she even started. Was very personable, which comforted me. I have now referred my family to her as well. Would recommend her to anyone!
