Amazing! I was terrified and I felt so much better having dr. Kabaklian take care of my tooth extraction.
This dentist is always sharp, on point and professional. He is very thorough and cares about his clients. I enjoy visiting.
My first visit to Dr. Kabaklian couldn't have been better! The office is beautiful and the technology he used for my consultation was really impressive. I definitely feel like me and my teeth are in good hands!
Doctor's office was clean, professional and friendly. Very modern and knowledgeable -- I would recommend to my friends. I will be back. Happy to find a great new dentist in the Newport area!
My visit was great! I hadn't seen a dentist in years and Dr Kabaklian was super professional and knowledgeable. My teeth needed a deep cleaning bad and it wasn't painful at all. I appreciated how quick it was too!
The most pleasant dentist experience I have ever had. He was professional, thorough and gentle. I highly recommend Dr. Joe to everyone!
Mr. Kabaklian was extremely informative. He honestly explained things regarding my teeth that previous dentists had failed to explain. He was thorough in my exams and gave suggestions for what he thought would be the best approach to improving my overall smile. He addressed all questions and concerns and was able to refer me to an Orthodontist he felt could best assist me. I would highly recommend his services to anyone.
I do not like the dentist office whatsoever BUT I did find Dr. to be very pleasant and to the point. He told me what I needed done in a straightforward, gentle manner. I will recommend him and look forward to having a dentist I feel comfortable with.
Always a pleasure working with Dr. Kabaklian. He is extremely knowledgeable, very professional, and always makes you feel at home. Plus he has TVs for you to lay back and watch whatever you want during the procedure! I highly recommend him to everyone I know!
Amazing, perfect, the best. The office was so beautiful, clean, bright and relaxing. The exam was through and Dr Kabaklian was very informative, relaxed and kind. Highly recommend a visit. You will be happy and your teeth will be too.

Went in for a cleaning and regular checkup. He was very nice and explained everything he was doing. I usually don't like going to the dentist, but this was pain-free. His assistant was also very nice and knowledgeable!
Dr Kabaklian was fantastic! Scheduling appointments was easy, the office is gorgeous, everything is top of the line. Dr Kabaklian was able to help make the experience pleasant and I've already scheduled future appointments for myself and my family!
Great experience! The most comfortable I have ever been in a dental office. They even let you watch TV while you are getting work done, thanks to the ceiling mounted TV's!!!

Overall Great Experience.
First, this is a beautiful dentistry nicely decorated and welcoming with the latest in technology. The customer service is great and very friendly. Dr Kabaklian is an amazing dentist who genuinely cares about his patients. During my procedure Dr. Kabaklian constantly made sure I was comfortable. There was no pain at all. Overall best dental experience. I highly recommend Dr. Kabaklian. Best dentist I've ever been to seriously!
Very comfortable and professional. Enjoy having him as my dentist even though I hate the dentist.
Dr. Joe is so refreshing from typical dentists. He goes the extra mile to make you feel comfortable and is wonderful educator of what/why procedures need to be done. He has a state of the art facility and the nicest staff. Vanessa, Hygenist, is so nice and welcoming and great at what she does. I'd recommend Enamel 10 out of 10 times! Sincerely, Allain
That was the best experience I've ever had. I filled out all of my info online prior to my appointment, I didn't wait more than a minute, my visit was fast and I got exactly what I wanted and needed. The service was outstanding!
What a great experience working with Dr Joseph Kabaklian! If you need quick dental work with a qualified dentist he is your guy. He was very pleasant and extremely knowledgeable. I felt safe and in good hands from the minute I stepped in his office. He's honest and very thorough. I look forward to my next appointment!
Another great experience with the Enamel team and Dr. Kabaklian! This is now my 3rd visit and the entire process from check-in to the teeth cleaning was easy and pain free. I was able to complete my entire login process via Zocdoc and by the time I arrived, I was warmly greeted, seated in the chair within 2 minutes and out the door in under an hour. The team at Enamel is great and Dr. K is very professional and courteous. My cleaning was excellent and I scheduled a teeth whiting for later next month. Thanks again Enamel NB!
Really appreciated his approach and relaxing nature.
The assistant and dentist were both very friendly. I came a few minutes late and hadn't filled out any paperwork and they were still able to see me right away. They also took my X-rays and said if I had any on file from before then they just wouldn't charge me for them. Great place!
I think he is one of the best dentist. Great service, very clean office, friendly staff, easy parking, no wait time and he really cares about your smile,
Honest, professional & mostly he respected my appointment time perfectly.
Wonderful answers all my questions I had for my next visit can't wait to go back
I just had 4 fillings replaced and chipped tooth and gum repair today. I have to admit, I have been to many dentists and Dr. Joseph Kabaklian's practice was extremely clean and organized with the latest technology all around. Dr. Joseph has a gentle and caring approach to dentistry. While he was performing oral work he put on Netflix TV and It made the time go by quickly. It was quite painless and he worked quickly and diligently while explaining the process during the procedure. I have my wife scheduled for cleaning and will bring the family as well. Dr. Joseph Kabaklian you have won me over and made my smile wider and brighter. Highly recommend. Thank you.
The office is beautiful, most up to date modern technology and very nice doctor. Great experience!
Superb bedside manner. Considerate and extremely professionable. Compassionate and caring.
Excellent. Went faster then was planned. Dr. Joe and Vanessa make going to the dentist a wonderful experience.
I had a great experience today at enamel. Dr. K took care of my cleaning so quickly while I caught up on my favorite show on HuLu. He answered all my questions and got really excited about making me some whitening trays! Can't wait to get my smile looking perfect thanks to enamel!
Straight forward, very good technique and tech, and no hidden costs so far.
Excellent & professional service - Precise diagnosis. Highly recommend!
Very friendly, easy, and fast! Everything was very well explained and having the TV on the ceiling was a nice perk.
Very patient and thorough in his explanations. I also felt no discomfort during my cleaning which is a first.
Beautiful office. Nice staff
He and his assistant make it easy and very comfortable to go to the dentist!
Dr. Kabaklian is great at what he does! I don't typically leave comments when it comes to business reviews, but I have never felt so comfortable going to the dentist (generally a place most of us don't like frequenting). The staff is very friendly and will offer a variety of refreshments upon arrival, all the equipment is state of the art and best of all, you know you're going to a fair and honest dentist. I was extremely impressed with the level of attentiveness and detail. I was even provided chap stick to prevent dried out lips when they perform a cleaning! If you're searching for a good dentist (like I was for months), go to Dr. Kabaklian. You won't regret it!
Great dentist!!! Has a very light touch. I was so nervous going in. But Dr K was very patient and helped me feel at ease. Finally a dentist i can trust. Good old fashioned dentistry with most state of the art equipment.
Simply put if you're looking for a clean, advanced, and professional experience come to Enamel. Dr. Kabaklian is extremely kind, skilled, and gentle. I didn't even feel his numbing injection or my wisdom teeth being pulled. I also appreciate his honesty. I've had so many experiences where dentists attempt to do work that really isn't needed, but he was the first to tell me I have a healthy beautiful smile (of course I need to floss more!!! :o) Enamel is modern and beautiful. It makes you feel so calm and comfortable. Vanessa is super sweet and helpful as well. I was impressed by how high tech everything was. While i was watching my favorite show on HULU I noticed his drill was controlled by an IPod. During my tour I was informed that the sterilization cabinet is state of the art. I love knowing everything is super clean and healthy. Basically going to Enamel has been the best dental experience I've ever had and I would definitely recommend this office to anyone looking for a trustworthy, up to date, and comfortable dental office to make sure they are looking and feeling great!
