From the little we saw the doctor / dentist - he seemed good. BUT as a family dentistry and with such a long wait (almost 45 minutes) - why aren't there ANY toys or things to do for the little ones? A couple of books, a drawing table in a corner, some lego - SOMETHING! Please see to this if you also want younger patients. Other than that, the staff was great.

GREAT dentist! Made sure I was comfortable, very knowledgeable and informative, made sure I understood what was going on. He's also very cost efficient and flexible. The receptionists were great with questions, competent to answer, and very patient focused. I didn't know I could enjoy the dentist's office, but now I do! DEFINITELY going back!

Pleasant, they have massage in the chair which was calming, considering I came with a toothache. Dr. Akhikar gave me no pain in checking the tooth. Made his recommendations, notified the front desk and my prescriptions etc were ready when I was read to check out.
