Dr. Zarookian is the best! He and his team are efficient and thorough and everyone who works at the office is very nice. I've been seeing him for a few years and I actually don't dread going to the dentist for my 6-month cleaning now!

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 youget 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 whyI 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 lowpain 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!

There is never a wait at his office. We had our normal cleanings and x-rays. The x-rays were painless and easy this time. My kids did great in their appointment. No special treats at this office, but he is very niceand had Nick. Jr on the TV for my daughter to watch. He was nice to check a tooth I was having issues with and did not want to do any work unless absolutely nessesary. My son had a very loose tooth, but he wouldn't pull it because he thought it would scare my son. It came out about 2hrs later. :-) Over all very nice.

Dr. Zarookian was calm, polite, and respectful. He clearly answered all of my questions. He did a fantastic job replacing a filling and fixing a chip in my front tooth in no time at all! He also recommended next steps formy overall dental care over the next several months. I will definitely be going back!
