I was really put off and disappointed with my visit. I probably waited less than 30 minutes to be seen. However, once I got into the office and got X-rays, I sat in the exam chair in excess of 30 minuteswithout anyone coming by to tell me why it was taking so long or even what was going on. Once Dr. Zargar came in, there was no apology or even acknowledgement that I had such a long wait. Then... the exam completely turned me off. I've never in my life had such a negative review of my dental health. In fact, I've always been told I've got great teeth. I'd never met these people in my life and within another 20 minutes I was handed a treatment plan for periodontal work that included significant expenses. When I told Dr. Zargar I was shocked by the diagnosis, he then said "I do have strong teeth", but went on to identify all of the things wrong. The fact that I hadn't even gotten out of the exam chair and had a detailed list of all the work that needed to be done really turned me off. I have never had a dental exam like this in my life. And, frankly, I think it all could have been averted if their office had communicated better and I understood what they were doing and planning to do. I went in there thinking I was going for a simple cleaning... Dr. Zargar's office was extremely flexible with an urgent issue for my wife. Being new to Phoenix, she was very pleased with how they treated her situation. That is the reason I chose to make an appointment. I'm calling my dentist back home to get his take prior to moving forward.

I love Doctor Z. He has great skill and precision, and he's also a nice person. He never pressures me to do procedures I don't need; he works with me on paying the bill over time; and I'm always comfortable (numb) during procedures.

I've always had a great experience with Dr. Zarger and his entire staff! Always friendly and accommodating we feel like family here. We started with Dr. Zarger when we moved to AZ 12 years ago, and even though we now liveover 30 minutes away, it's worth our drive to come in every 6 months for our cleanings.

The waiting room itself is relaxing.... Especially considering it a dentist office. The office overall is very clean with the latest equipment. I am always greeted with a warm welcome from the front desk. The staff takes the time to explainwhat they will do and they make sure to do everything to helps me relax and feel comfortable. Dr. Zargar is very knowledgable. He is kind and gentle with a warm smile and genuine with his concerns. I didnt feel rushed and he answered all of my questions. Dental visits have been intimidating and left me feeling vulnerable but Dr. Zarger and his assistants and hygentists are Definitely the best I have experienced!
