Very relaxing, no judgement, just a good dentist focused on getting the right work done for a healthy mouth. I received a consultation, a schedule for visits, and up front pricing so I can plan what works for me. I’ll beback in 2 weeks. As someone who has a deep anxiety when it comes to dental work, it says a lot that I’m willing to go back so quickly for the kind of work I’m getting done.

I would recommend the office of Dr. Alwan without any hesitation. I set my appointment and within 24 hours, someone from the office called me and confirmed my app. I went and they took me in right away. The office isreally nice and most importantly clean. They addressed my concern and treated the problem. The doctor also recommend other treatment and I agreed. I made my next appointment and again, I would recommend Herndon Healthy Smiles.
