Verified Patient Reviews
Very nice! :-)
Previously, dentists would always find cavities whenever I used new patient specials. However, I felt the office here gave me a good examination and did not try to bill me for services I do not need.
This is the fastest and best dental experience I've ever had. I was in and out in less than 30 minutes, x-rays included! I've definitely found my dentist for the long term.
They we great! Nice and professional. Answers all your questions. Makes you feel comfortable.
This was the second time I had a dental check-up and cleaning at this clinic. Dr. Abboud is a professional who clearly explains your dental health, and is patient and caring when asked about other dental questions. He is not hurried and is focused on the patient. It means a lot to me when I come into the clinic and the staff greets me with a positive "good afternoon", etc. Going to the dentist, just got a little easier... ;) ! Thank you!
I dislike going to the dentist SO MUCH I have waited too long. Dr Abboud made me feel so at ease and comfortable that I no longer have reservations about visiting him. Thank you!!!
I was very impressed by the doctor I saw and the staff there. Not only would I recommend them, but I actually did recommend them a few hours after my visit. A new patient will be calling tomorrow :)
Their care was professional and precise.
Dr. Abboud is really a wonderful dentist. He is so professional and knowledgeable.
I was EXTREMELY PLEASED! The staff was very friendly and helpful. I whole exam with x-rays, cleaning, and exam took only 45 minutes. I was pleasantly surprised. Dr. Abboud was very friendly and answered all my questions about future work that may need to be done. An overall wonderful first time visit. I would HIGHLY recommend him and plan to return.
All staff, including my regular dentist were wonderful. I like both the professional competence of everyone as well as their friendliness.
It was great, and everyone was polite.
Nice set-up and facilities - Good place
Professional knowledgeable cordial personality

It went very will. Really felt comfortable there. Lovely doctor and gentle hands. Also everyone else in the clinic was lovely and professional from the reception. Also his coworkers wereso good
Very timely, great people.
Great staff and friendly and the doctor was very professional!
He was polite, the facility was nice, and his team was fast. Those are the only three buckets I am focused on when going to a doctors office. They delivered on all three.
It was an excellent experience! Back to the dentist after moving so much has been easy transition. Highly recommend!
He rocks and the staff!
I was very nervous and I got queasy, and the team took it completely in stride. Both Dr. Abboud and his assistant were attentive and patient with me.
Dr Ghassan Abboud is the best dentist ever!!!
The staff and environment work well to make each visit a pleasant experience.
God bless Ghassan abboud, professional, fast, painless, nice crew and costumer service.
last visit was excelent very good took care of me ,high tec services,with pleasent and good attitude ,made feel relaxed and no fear .
Terrific location and office, with a kind, diverse staff! Initially I came in to see Dr. Abboud (who was very informative, understanding, and good-humored), but on the day of my appointment, another dentist completed the operation (I think he was out, but they let me know ahead of time that I'd have a different dentist). I wish I could remember her name, because she was wonderful as well. As promised, I hardly felt a thing!
It was awesome and great service. I'll be a regular there now.
I had my last dentist for 10 years. Hope to stay at 1st Dental just as long if not longer.
It was great. My tooth wasn't damaged enough to be repaired in any way, so I got a cleaning. I'll be back in 3 months for another one!
Very courteous and professional. The cleaning was painless and the office was exceptionally clean.
Doc and staff were friendly, attentive, and generally awesome. Didn't wait long to be seen by hygienist nor the doc. Hygienist was super thorough but gentle. Great experience. Thanks!
Dr Abboud was professional, very nice, and trying to make my experience as comfortable as possible considering the reason for visit - wisdom tooth extraction. I would definitely go back to his practice!
Everyone in the office was friendly, they laid out the treatment plan (with pricing including insurance coverage). Loved it there.
I have not been to his office since it first opened. It was great then and it is even better now.
He was gentile and polite. Understood my needs without being annoyed by my nervousness. I've never walked out of the dentist feeling so good!
He is very nice and gental and very professional
Great experience. Staff was friendly and helpful.
I love, love, love these ppl. All staff is very friendly specially Ana, THANK YOU!!! They take priority in each n every patient from making appointments to post care. Dr. Ghassan is so nice n very professional he makes me wanna become a dental assistant and work for him. Heeeeeee Love u guys..... Thanks for all ur care n love Mrs. Qasim
This practice is not only professional and knowledgeable, they are warm and friendly.I was very nervous because it had been 7 years since I was able to see a dentist, but I instantly felt at home the second the receptionist greeted me. There was an issue with my insurance when I checked in, but the receptionist took initiative and handled it for me while I was being seen. Everyone here was really great.
Best dental experience I have had. Very personable and timely!
Dr. Abboud and his staff were wonderful. I went in for a cleaning without insurance and they were prompt and professional. I did witness Dr. Abboud talk down to one of his receptionists in front of the patients in the waiting area, which I felt bad about. He wasn't exactly mean, but reprimands are best done privately.
The doctor and everyone else at this office are great. Super friendly, knowledgeable, and I never had to sit around wondering when someone would be seeing me.
Kind and professional team!!!
I was extremely impressed with the cleanliness of the office; courteous staff, and professional treatment by Dr. Abboud. My condition was diagnosed and a treatment plan has been started.
Great dentist. Keeps you informed and does what he can to mitigate pain.
It was too quick for my taste. He quickly looked at my xrays and did not even look in my mouth (never had a dentist do that) before saying that everything was fine. The hygienists worked faster than any I have ever seen in my life, even after I had not been to a dentist in years, it was kind of strange.
It was my first visit and my impression was that all the employees loved their jobs. Everyone had a friendly attitude and made me feel very comfortable. My time with Dr. Abboud was brief, but he was clear in what he said and I felt satisfied.
The doctor was welcoming, his smile makes you feel at easy and trust him to be able to solve your dental issues, whatever they might be. Progressing he explains clearly and simply what your problem is and how he plans to fix it. I left feeling great. Thank you for your good professional, friendly attitude.
I was very pleased with Dr. Abboud, a very friendly, upbeat man. Being very frustrated with my current dental situation, Dr. Abboud put me at ease. I was also very satisfied with the staff, a friendly, helpful crew.
Very helpful. Felt very respected.
Very friendly, knew what he was doing. David (the assistant) was great too!
My dental visit was perfect. Dr. Abboud is an expert and caring professional who not only addresses all the dental needs of my family, but helps us overcome our fear of dental procedures. The entire office is staffed with wonderful personnel as well.
The receptionists are fantastic here - they helped me sort out insurance stuff that always confuses me. I was seen by the dental hygienist (Sanela) less than ten minutes after I completed my first-time-patient paperwork. Sanela was FANTASTIC. She is very sweet and did an excellent job - my teeth felt great after her minimal-pain cleaning (one of the best I've ever had!). Dr. Abboud was good, but didn't spend much time with me and didn't seem to take my concerns seriously. A nice guy overall though.
Dr Abboud and the staff made me feel very comfortable.
Very kind and professional.
Dr. Ghassan and his staff provided excellent and friendly service to a patient with some anxieties about dental service. It was no sweat with this group of professionals. I am so glad that my friend and previous colleague, Jessica French, referred me to her practice!!
I haven't seen Dr. Abboud in span of 8 years and when I showed up at his office he immediately recognized me. Just that tells you to what extent he rally cares about his patients. He is the kind of dentist that does excellent job and makes you as a costumer extremely satisfied.
After reading several reviews about Dr. Abboud I decided to seek an appointment with him in regards to an implant. I was very impressed at how professional and welcoming the office staff was. Everyone I encountered was knowledgeable and genuinely concerned about my dental needs. I feel very comfortable and confident with the treatment plan Dr Abboud has designed for me and can't wait to get started!!
I really enjoy coming to the office. The staff is extremely professional and kind. And the Dr. is on point when it comes to the quality of his work.
Very friendly. Very clean. A great experience.
Dr. Abboud is the best dentist I´ve ever had.
Everyone was very friendly and courteous. The office was ultra modern, very clean comfy and cozy. Strongly recommend!!!!
Very professional and great price.
Dental cleaning approach is too harsh. Billing practices not good.
He was professional as well as personable. It made going to the dentist not so bad.
Fantastic experience. As somebody who sells technology to hospitals, I was blown away by the progressive technolgy at Dr. Abboud's practice. Your Xray is available on the flat screen TV within minutes. More importantly, Dr. Abboud spent 20 minutes or so with me. If you live in Gold Coast/Old Town and use another dental practice it's a shame!!!
It was really wonderful, he was very polite and put me at ease.
Great dentist, great facility and very friendly staff. Highly recommended.
I was seen right away and Dr. Abboud and his hygenist were very friendly. I would definitely recommend!
