Excellent customer service!!!
Highly skilled and professional Dentist. Finally, I found the best.
Dr. Bouhairi is painless , this was my first time . My husband had told me Dr. Bouhairi was painless , and I didn't believe him till I saw Dr. Bouhairi. Very nice and gentle Dr. His office administrator is also wonderful.
Always a fun dental experience with Dr. Bouhairi! Also, Mona, is the coolest gal ever.

Was friendly, and did a great job
Dr Bouhairiis the best dentist I have ever known. I've been going to him for 5 years and he saved two of my teeth. He is soley interested in saving and helping teeth. Be is very kind, sweet and not in it for the money. His assistant Mona is fabulous at the front office and the appointments are always on time.
dr biuhari was very professional and gentle Everything was explained to me
Very friendly receptionist and very gentle and professional dentist. Explained what was needed to be done in order of importance and price. No confusion whatsoever. Only negative was during cleaning water was not all contained in mouth but was spraying on lower part of face alot. Other than that, great!
Comfortable straight forward
Dr. Bouhairi was very kind and made me feel at ease. He didn't make me feel like he was trying to sell me something I don't need like many dentist do. I feel fortunate to have found Dr. Bouhairi and I will certainly recommend him to anyone looking for a great dentist.
i WAS SCARED BECAUSE I HADN'T BEEN TO A DENTIST SINCE 2012 AND SHOWED UP WITH BROKEN TEETH AND PARTIAL DENTURES THAT NO LONGER FIT. HE DIDN'T GIVE ME ANY GRIEF OVER THE NEGLECT. INSTEAD, HE ASSURED ME THAT IT COULD ALL BE TAKEN CARE OF. HE SPOKE EASY AND WAS CALM. OFFICE IS IMMACULATE, EVERYTHING IS CLEAN. HIGHLY RECOMMEND
Dr. Bouhairi is professional, efficient, and gentle.
Excellent. The doctor gave me all the alternatives for the treatment. No pressure to up sell. Truly an old school dentist who is honest and follows the copy's set by the insurance and does not add non authorized amount to inflate the copayment amount.
I had my first appointment with Dr. Bouhairi today and it was a very pleasant visit. The secretary was very nice and Dr. Bouhairi was kind, thorough, and gentle on my teeth. I will definitely be coming back.
Very professional. Very friendly. Highly recommend to anyone.
Friendly, professional, and most importantly gentle!
My visit was great. Dr. Karim is very friendly and professional.
Staff was very friendly and professional. I had a great experience at I Smile!
Good first visit
Kind and honest service. Thanks!
The Office Manager is very efficient in checking with insurance to be sure insurance will cover the treatments needed. Dr Bouhairi actually does the work instead of having an assistant do everything. I really enjoy going to the office and feel like they actually care about me!
Went in for a cleaning and later cavity filling and deep cleaning. Dr. Bouhairi is not very pushy and will give you his recommendation and leave the decision up to you as it should be. He was upfront with pricing, looked up my insurance costs, and it did not change at all after getting my work done. I arrived on time both times, but still had to wait for my work to be done so make sure you are not on a tight schedule when going.
He was a very kind Dentist. He explained all procedure before he started and gave us an option.
He was awesome.i was extremely nervous. I don't do dentist or doctors and he made me feel comfortable and was always checking to make sure I was ok.
He is supporting, recommend the best method even if to referral to another specialist who is better in some sort of issue.
Felt very at ease and pleased with the total visit..My wife will be swiching over to Karim Bouhairi
Everyone was so nice...and i informed Dr Karim Bouhairi how nervous i was and he was more than patient with me. I highly recommend him and will use him again in the future!
My visit was a rush appointment to put in my crowns because the temporaries would not stay in, and I was in pain. The staff was understanding and rushed the lab to finish. The doctor accommodated my schedule and fit me in to complete the work and resolve my issues. Dr. Bouhairi is a gentle dentist, skilled, professional, thorough in explaining the procedures that need to be done, and efficient in breaking the work into manageable appointments.
One of the nicest dentists that I've ever had. The whole experience was pleasant. I highly recommend him!!
Wonderful dentist who cares about his patients and wants to be thorough. I was not an easy patient, I had to come in multiple times within a matter of a few months and he worked with my schedule and was very caring to not cause a lot of discomfort. He listened to my concerns and tried to work around them as best as he could. I would recommend him to anyone in the area.
Dr. Bouhairi is very nice and friendly. My children love to visit there. Thank you!
He is always friendly and honest. Very pleased with all my visits to his office
Nice and gentle with teeth. I loved how he was very transparent with the costs associated with his dental care. Other dentists have sent surprising bills, even after clarifying in person.
He is gentle, caring man who happens to be a great dentist. He is easily the best dentist I have ever used. I am 76 years old and I have a lot of very good dentists but Dr. Bouhairi is the best.
Great person. Was only my second time at a dentist and I went to him my first time also. Will definitely go back and see him again
Dr Karim is the most patient doctor I ever met .
Dr. Bouhairi was very professional, he took time to explain exactly his findings and what he is going to do. He made sure that I'm comfortable. I've never been as relaxed as I was while he was working on my teeth. I strongly recommend Dr. Karim Bouhairi.
The Best Dentist I have Ever Had! Seriously I will be seeing him forever!!!
He is Awesome!!!
I am a retired Licensed Clinical Social Worker and very tough to please! This man was not only a very talented, gentle and skilled dentist, he is a superb and honest human being! He does his job, meaning he really looks closely at your teeth and gums and wants more that anything on the planet to save your teeth from harm!
Great! The staff is so polite and kind and very friendly, the office is so clean organized and cute....the doctor very kind and took time to explain what you have to know and makes you feel comfortable and also is not in a rush...nor hurry wich is also great!!! I would highly Recommend him!!!
He was very kind and had a conversation with me about the procedure before and after. He asked for my input which I found very important.
Gentle, sensitive, but 20 minute wait was strange for a 1st appt of the day.
He was nice, friendly staff, clean and well-decorated office. I'd go back! They were flexible with filling pricing.
Dr. Karim was professional n kind. My son felt very comfortable. Thank you
Dr. Bouhairi is by far the best dentist I've ever seen. He takes his time to explain procedures and is very thorough. Too bad my dental plan changed and I can't see him. Highly recommended.
He is the best

Excellent service, friendly staff and great Dentist...
Dr. Bouhairi was very professional and courteous. I was nervous about coming to the dentist after so many years, but Dr. Bouhairi put me at ease. He explained every procedure and my dental health in detail . The entire staff was very friendly and professional. I have my next appointment coming up soon and looking forward to getting started on improving my dental health with Dr. Bouhairi.
Dr Bouhairi is the best dentist I've had in my life and I've had a bunch because I move around a lot. I actually don't dread going to the dentist because he is so good. Actually, that is a lie. I still hate going to the dentist, but seriously, it's a million times better having him work on my teeth.
This is the third dentist we've tried since moving to the area. Dr Bouhairi is the best hands down. We finally found our dentist.
Makes you comfortable and if your nervous, he will put you at ease. He is very professional and explains to you beforehand what you need and caters to your time if he can of course ;). His staff are helpful and courteous. My Teeth Thank You lol. ;)
