This was, by far, the best cleaning and care I’ve received from any dental office in a very long time. Myfamily is part of the dental community in another part of the Is, and I’ve not been satisfied with the hygiene, quality of care, or bedside manner of any of the dental mills that have become too common in this region. Dr. Zarookian blew me away with his involvement in the appointment. He was knowledgeable, reviewed patient history in detail, and gave a thorough examination. The hygienist was also friendly, knowledgeable, and gave the best quality cleaning I’ve had in a while. The office was very clean and welcoming, and I was put at ease the moment I walked in the door. The receptionist worked to validate my insurance and take care of the payment aspects of my appointment in the waiting room before my appointment time, which made the process smooth and painless. I will be returning to the office and I highly recommend.

He was great, explained everything in great detail and was able to take care of everything I needed done right thenand there. I was expecting just a consultation and then having to come back later or see an oral surgeon, but he was able to perform the extraction and was also very quick. Glad I found him, highly recommended. Great staff as well, all very friendly and knowledgeable

Everyone is always professional. I like how I am treated as an actual human being and not a number. Other dentists offices I've been to tend to be very robotic in their operations (a hygienist cleans your teeth and then you get to see the doctor for 5 seconds), but this office offers that human element that I find is often missing in the health care field.

Dr. Zarookian knows what he's doing - plus, he listens and is caring. He's very easy going (which makes voicing dental concerns and fears easier) yet extremely professional. If you're afraid of the dentist's chair, he's the dentist for you. Also, front desk and dental hygienists are friendly, professional, and competent.

Dr. Zarookian was professional and knowledgeable about all my teeth needs that I asked him about. He showed me the x-rays after they were took and cleaned my teeth himself. The appointment took roughly 40 minutes. My only curiousity is why I was required to fill out the forms onsite once I had done them online prior to the appointment. No biggie. They only took 5 minutes.

First of all I need to tell you that whole my life I hated most of my dentists... usually I didn't feel good about their attitude and had a lot of issues after operations! Also , I have a very low pain threshold and am a cry-baby most of the times... Now , I feel very lucky to meet Dr. Armen and I felt really good at my first appointment ! He is very calm, blunt and knows how to deal with me. Also , after a few following appointments my whole family feels the same ... Most likely I won't change my dentist next a few decades and I highly recommend him for anyone who hated his/her dentists before... you won't regret that!
