The entire process was great. From scheduling the appointment, to checking in, x-rays and preliminary exam, and explanationof the treatment plan - everyone was efficient as well as kind. I was really impressed because I felt like I was being treated as a patient AND a person, not just a chart number.

They were so nice, it was great because I have major anxiety around the dentist. I can not recommend highly enough.

Replacement crown in 2 appointments. Great job using topical to deaden shot. Almost couldn't feel it. Certainly much better than my memory of fillings from the 1960s ! Today was permanent crown being placed. No need for a shot, almost nopain, just a wee bit when using the air to dry the tooth before applying adhesive. Dr Karami has great hands, he is friendly, knowledgeable, and I trust him completely; you can too !

Doctor Karami is always very friendly and professional. I've been a patient for years, and I've consistently received good service without ever having to wait longer than 5 minutes to be seen. His staff is friendly and professional as well.The two times we've had a billing issue with my insurance company, Dr. Karami and his staff have bent over backwards to put me, as the patient, first and I appreciate that very much.

Absoltuely horrible experience with a very rude front desk lady! Dr. Karami was extremely friendly. However, the front desk lady with bad cigarette breath and horrible manners made my overall experience extremely uncomfortable.

I placed five stars because Karami is a very good Dentist. I came in a little late because they had me waiting anywhere from 15 to 20 mins the appointment prior. I figured I would come in a little later andmy wait time be less. OOOO nooooo I was rudely addressed by the old lady at the front desk with the short hair cut by the name of Cindy. So I explained to her why I came in 15 mins late. She continued to be very rude which left a sour taste in my mouth. I needed a letter from the Dr. he stated I should go to the front desk to get it. I stated I didn't want to deal with her after. I really dislike rude people it is really no point of it. You will only have a hard day after it all. At the end of the day I addressed how rude she was and she didin't get it. smh

Today was my first appointment and I’d have to say he might be the best dentist I’ve seen. He was very nice and made me feel comfortable. I Loved how thorough he was with my cleaning. I haven’t seen a dentistin three years... he made sure to take great care of me even though I was feeling a lot of sensitivity. What I loved most about the visit was how well he explained my X-rays to me and picture taken. I’ve never had a dentist do that with me. I fully understand what was causing my issues and what my treatment will be. The dental assistant was also amazing and so sweet to me! Excited to have my dental work done here!

Dr. Karami and his dental technician (Julian) make a great team. They are patient-focused (and gentle) and are willing to explain their progress while it is happening. There was no wasted time either in the office lobby or in the dentalchair. I feel as if I am in capable hands with Dr. K and Julian.

When I got there I was immediately greeted and offered cold water. Since this was my first time there I had forms to complete. The receptionist, Kim, was really helpful when I called and when it came to the paperwork. OnceI was taken to the back the dental assistant made sure that I was comfortable and took X-rays while we waited for the dentist. Dr. Karami explained things in an easy to understand way and was very gentle. The journey to a perfect smile seems more likely now that I have this team on my side. I’m looking forward to coming back.

I was super pleased with my visit. It more than exceeded my expectations. They made me super comfortable. I suffer with TMJ and it's not easy to keep my mouth open for long periods of time, like during the cleanings. Theywere the very 1st dental office to offer me "little bite blocks" to be placed inside my mouth to alleviate the pressure of me having to hold my mouth open the entire time. This helped so much!!! I was so surprised no other dentist had ever given this to me in the past. These guys are far above the rest. I highly recommend going to see them!!

I had several teeth receive multiple fillings and after the anesthetic injections I FELT NOTHING. Usually it takes extra for me to avoid pain. This was phenomenal. I also appreciate how the doctor and assistant communicate: utter respect andpoliteness. Thanks to Kim and City in the front office for all their help. I'm very grateful.

Dr Karami is the BEST dentist in the Denver area , I called to get an appointment to re-seat my crown and he fit me in the very next day and immediately upon checking on my tooth that needed a crownhe noticed another tooth that needed a root canal and was able to fit me in a couple hours later that same day ( he worked through his lunch) so I could get the root canal before I flew out of town , I was nervous but he was quick to re assure me that it would be fine and I would be ok to fly with very little to no pain which was 100% accurate , I would strongly recommend dr karami to anyone looking for a dentist

Dr. Ardavan Karami is a top-knotch dentist, giving a completely open and honest assessment of diagnoses and treatment, also with excellent, professional and friendly demeanor. He's does very well communicating his medical knowledge, listeningto patient concerns, and is respectful of the patient's own perspective for pursuing any treatment. I am very glad to have switched dentists to now see Dr. Karami, whose office is a far longer drive for me to visit, but worth it! Excellent, friendly and helpful office staff and dental hygienist work also made the visit very smooth and ideal. Many thanks!
