She is the most thorough dentist I've ever been to. She deduced which side of my teeth I brush first, and which side I sleep on. First appointment was pretty long because of this - an hour and half. Was very happy with her.

I thought Doctor Hala Al-Tarifi did a good job and is very knowledgable but it felt like i was being trying to be sold products at every turn. She suggested that my implant had been done wrong and that she couldre-do it but better... I don't know why I would ever want to go through the pain of an implant to re-do something when it's perfectly fine the way it is. I think she's a smart and good dentist but I dont think i'll be going back.

My entire family has been seeing Dr. Hala since 2008 and we all love her! I've recommended her to several friends looking for a dentist and all have become loyal clients too.

I went to see Dr Hala Al-Tarifi due to an emergency while traveling -- I had a filling which broke. She carefully removed the two fillings (!) in the tooth, showed me clear pictures of other teeth and filled the toothwhich had been damaged -- I've had no problems with the filling, and I was very happy that she could see me when I had an emergency. She suggested filling some (mostly stable) cavities, and I took most (but not quite all) of her advice later, after consultation with another dentist; and I can understand being a bit more aggressive about filling cavities when a patient comes in with a broken filling.
