Dr. Azarbal is the only dentist I trust completely. He is very through in his explanations and makes sure you arecomfortable in each situation. He is also very skilled in what he does and is a true professional. His equipment is state of the art and his staff is friendly and helpful. They all make the dental experience a rather pleasant and painless one. I have recommended him to many friends and colleges, he is a great resource.

It took 3 hours to get a porcelain inlay when they said it was going to take one hour at most.If you have a small mouth, do not come here since dentist has larger fingers/hands and is not nimble enough to get into corners. The inlay came off after he tried to cement it and he had to recement it which leads to a risk of the inlay coming off again(!) in the short term (direct words from the dentist himself). Dentist also nudges you (actual touch) when trying to make a point which is strange bedside manner. Also recommends the pricier/expensive procedures without mentioning or describing alternative less expensive options.

I am a dental chicken and Dr. Arash is very sensitive to that. If you do not like something he has alternate ways to do some things. He is fast and I like the way he speaks to his staff. Laura

I have had 3 Dentist and 3 apartment moves over the past 10 years. If I move again in the future then I will be keeping my dentist as long as the new apartment is within 100 miles of his dental practice.

I highly recommend Dr. Azarbal. I was very nervous before my first appointment with him and he was very calming and made sure I understood every step of treatment. I needed a lot of dental work done and he has completely transformed my smile better than I thought possible. He made sure even the more major work done gave me as little pain as possible. Plus, all of the office staff is very friendly and helpful.

The staff were helpful and friendly, and Dr. Azarbal was open, friendly, and informative. He gave me great information about what was going on with my teeth and what the causes and solutions were, while also being considerate about not overwhelming me with too much at once. He is enthusiastic about his job and cares about his patients, and that really comes across. There was not one negative thing in the whole experience. Thank you to Dr. Azarbal, to Megan, and the whole team!

Had an amazing first visit! Consulation was easy and painless. Hadnt been to the dentist in 5 years and I'm really happy to have found this place. He didnt make me feel bad or talk down to me for not going for so long ( one of the things I was sure any dentist would do given the amount of time I hadnt been seen by a dentist) He was really easy going and explained everything to me. Great staff too! Everything was top notch! Highly recommended!

I really like Dr. Azarbal. He was very friendly and had a great energy about him. He took his time showing me areas of concern and explaing the work I need done. His staff was very nice, professional and helpful. I think I have found my new dentist!

Lena the front desk receptionist was very helpful with finding out my insurance information and coverage, and making sure I was comfortable with the amount I was paying (putting off certain procedures for later when I have more funds). My dental assistant was kind and patient (and relatively swift) when taking my x-rays. Dr. Azarbal was thorough and understanding, had humor, and even answered questions for me that were outside of my own appointment (e.g. oral-dental issues I have observed in a student of mine). I appreciated his patience and honesty.
