The doctor was very professional and easy to talk to. He answered all of my questions and though I had definite things to address, he was very real with me and did not "scare me" into anything. All of his staffwere very warm as well. They were so quick in seeing me I could barely get my forms done before they were ready to see me, it was great!

The doctor and the entire staff are first rate. Due to a change in our dental insurance, I searched for a dentist that was on the new plan and found Dr. Sahakyan around 18 months ago. I have since referred mywife, daughter and several friends and everyone has been happy with the choice. Everyone in the office is friendly, respectful and efficient. The dentist keeps me informed about my dental health, possible developing issues and how best to avoid problems, but does not urge treatment beyond what is indicated at the time. This is a great office.

Dr. George is a fantastic dentist! He explains everything and calms me down. This is so important because I have a ton of anxiety about my teeth. If he knows he isn't the best dentist for the job, he refers meto the other dentist at his practice. She is also a fantastic dentist and happens to be his sister. I feel very at ease when I go in for anything because I know they know how to handle anxious patients like myself. The office staff and support staff is also excellent!

I really appreciated how open and honest everyone was. They got to me in a timely manner and eagerly answered all of my questions. The girl didn't even make fun of me when I couldn't figure out how I was supposedto angle my head when they were taking x-rays :p I will definitely be going there for all my future dental needs.

The entire staff was friendly and accommodating. I believe every single person in that I saw office spoke to me at least making sure I was comfortable or not waiting too long. Also I was very thankful they took me inon short notice. I originally called at didn't even leave a message and was just going to look up another place for my emergency situation, the actual main Dentist called me back and said if I couldn't wait a day he would make himself available to treat me. That's old school personable service that you just can't find anymore!
