I highly recommend Dr P. I've been to a lot of dentists and her work is excellent. From cleanings to fillings and crowns, her work is impeccable. She's made all of my procedures as pain free as possible and she's gota great eye for making crowns as natural looking as possible.

Dr. Pahlavani is by far my favorite dentist ever. I've been a patient for two years now. Her office is a thoroughly modern intimate English basement with lots of light. The camaraderie and rapport among her staff makes me feel relaxedand at ease. She is both a consummate professional and super friendly, funny person. I'm always very comfortable when I go to see her! Recently a small piece of my tooth had fallen out (ahhhh!!) and they were able to see me within 24 hours. Dr. Pahlavani and her assistant Tawana (also super cool) fixed it quickly and with zero pain. So grateful to have found such an amazing dentist, and so close as well! THANK YOU DR. PAHLAVANI!

I had a great first experience, the office is small but modern and very clean. Janice was great taking xrays and funny! After thet Edna looks through them with you pointing out any issues, we did the cleaning using the watertechnique + a little scraping. I had an issue with an old filling which she noticed but fully trusted her advice and she was able to take a picture of it to show that it should be addressed. Fully transparancy and even was able to tell me exacty how much it would cost before we started. She was gentle with the drill and very considerate of how you are feeing throughout the process. Thanks again!

Very impressed with Ms. Pahlavani. She was professional, timely, and made me as comfortable as possible. She was very understanding with my dental anxiety, and explained everything ahead of time. For someone who has been going to the same dentistfor the last 15 years, I was nervous to try someone new in a new city. I could not be happier with my visit!

The appointment started promptly and Dr. Pahlavani's team makes sure that you get all of the paperwork out of the way before you come into the office. Dr. Pahlavani explained every step from x-ray results to the latest dental tools sheused during the procedure. I admire her OCD for teeth stains, because you will have none after visiting her. I may have found my DC dentist.

My visit to Dr. Pahlavani's office was beyond a negative experience. The quality of care was below par and on top of that, i was misled by the office administrator. She indicated the provider was out of network but did notexplain what that meant and its cost implications for me. Additionally, hoping to capture more revenue before i fully understood the costs, she tried to book me for an on the spot cavity fill, knowing that once i learned the implications of out of network, I would not be using the dental service again. This is a low integrity dental office that should be avoided by all people

Dr. Pahlavani and her staff are super nice and friendly. The doctor paid great attention to detail and was gentle. I went in for a cleaning and subsequently a cavity filling. Believe or not, the doctor actually cleaned my teeth herself and I barely felt a thing.

Very professional administrative wise with no wait. I no longer am nervous about going to the dentist. The staff and doctor were very friendly and talked me through what to expect during my visit. Critical to the experience was the doctorand hygienist informing me what they were doing while working on my teeth, which pushes away all the worst case scenarios brought by the sounds of a procedure. Again, incredibly friendly and professional! Would highly recommend. A most pleasurable experience interacting with everyone there.

I never thought I would ever say this but, going to the dentist is an absolute pleasure! Dr. Pahlavani and her team are the best! Since the moment you arrive until the moment your procedure is done, they make you feelextremely comfortable, she takes really good care of you and the work she does is painless! Something else I really appreciate is that she will tell you what it is that you could get done in the long term and what you need to get done in the short term which allows you to plan your procedures accordingly. I look forward to my dentist appointments because her and her team are an absolute delight.

Edna Pahlavani has been great! After an emergency visit where she was able to fit me in same day I was so happy with her bedside manner and the people who work in her office I decided to make her myregular dentist. I have since had a checkup and cleaning as well as a crown and other work. She has been very gentile, talked me thru what she was doing and managed to make repair work painless. Her office has been easy to work with, straightforward and feels honest and trustworthy. I have and will continue to would recommend Edna Pahlavani.

This was my second visit with Dr. Pahlavani (it's Neda, by the way). She's maybe the best dentist I've ever had. On top of being super friendly and kind, she is a consummate professional and has a steady hand. She alwaysexplains what she's doing and is abundantly cautious of causing me any pain whatsoever. The fillings she added today are absolutely beautiful. She also has a wonderful staff! Cannot recommend highly enough.

Dr. Pahlavani made sure to explain all of theprocedures and pricing with me before beginning any work so I was not surprised by anything, plus she works very quickly and efficiently.
