Dr. Bafekr and her hygienist Aba (I hope I am spelling that correct!) were extremely welcoming and efficient. My father is my Dentist on the east coast and this was my first experience in another office. I just came for ateeth cleaning, but I would certainly come back for more visits if it is not worth me flying cross country to have more work done.

I came to Dr. Bafekr as a new patient needing a dental checkup/routine cleaning. I have to say I had an absolutely wonderful experience at Dr. Bafekr's office. She was so kind and welcoming and a new patient, she took thetime to explain all parts of the cleaning procedure. Her attention to detail and dental knowledge was outstanding. I have absolutely no complaints, and woukd highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a new dentist. Looking forward to my next visit!

Dr. Bafekr and Ana were absolutely lovely, I had several appointments with them (basic checkup, and then some crack repair) that had a bit of a time limit, and the entire process was easy and comfortable.

I'm glad i waited on reviewing until i got my invoice. i went for a regular cleaning appointment which i get as per my insurance coverage. staff were nice, doctor was nice. The worst part as often it happens is whenu see the bill. The only thing i asked for her was basic dental cleaning, and the charges on the bill.OMG. she charged me for dental cleaning instructions. are you serious? repeat.. dental cleaning instructions??? in the worst case scenario you decide on visiting this dentist. make sure you shut your mouth and not try to have a conversation. who knows what other hidden charges they will come up with.

Dr. Bafekr was my first dentist in SF and I had to go to her for my first ever dental issue. She was so calm and professional and made me feel completely at ease. She walked me through everything that wasgoing to happen and constantly checked in to make sure I was feeling ok. She is very knowledgable and kind. I highly recommend her.

Doctor Bafekr and her assistant Erica are exceptionally kind and attentive. Doctor Bafekr made a point of asking if any tools she used caused me discomfort and, if so, switched to another. I'd recommend her to anyone who is generally scared of the dentist's office.

I did not have a very good experience with this Dr. Haleh Befekr. I went to her office to get a dental cleaning, since I am new to this city and needed a new dentist. When I arrived for my appointment,I was told the cost, and even with my insurance, it was quite a bit more than I expected. I just attributed that to living in San Francisco, and went on with it. She did some mouth x-rays, and when we actually got to the cleaning, the hygienist seemed very rushed. I did not leave feeling like I received a thorough cleaning. A few days later, I received a bill for four times the amount I was originally told when I arrived that morning for my appointment. I am not thrilled; I will find a new dentist.

This is the first time I've used Zocdoc and it was a great experience! Dr. Bafekr was very kind and welcoming for my first time visit to her office. She made sure I was comfortable and explained each procedure as shewent through and examined my teeth! She was a genuine doctor who truly cares for her patients' needs and their experience at her office. I'll definitely continue to see Dr. Bafekr for future Dentist visits!

Amazing emergency dental work, very painless. She was so nice and cared so much. Very professional, but also super expensive. Near a K$. This is for a root canal X-rays and Rxs. But if money is no object, she is thebest dental professional I have ever been too- and that says a lot, as my teeth are falling apart as fast as I can fix them. I've been treated in Dever California and DC and MD.

Haleh Bafekr is an amazing dentist; very kind, patient and efficient! She and her staff are located in a small office downtown and are very organized and friendly. Each time I go there, I never have to wait more than 10minutes. All my dentist appointments in the past have been long and drawn out. That's not the case here! they are very speedy but always make sure that I'm comfortable throughout my routine cleanings and are very friendly. Would highly recommend this office!
